tom10101 (4102) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 8, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 20, 2014 Bottle (750 ml). 2014 cork. Split 3-ways.

Appearance: Murky amber/brown with a medium quickly diminishing off-white head and little lacing.

Aroma: Quite spicy with caramel malt, earthy notes and light fruitiness.

Taste: Spices, caramel malt, light fruitiness, acidiy notes and not much else.

Palate: Medium body. Prickly carbonation. Watery mouthfeel. Spicy finish.

Overall: Quite disappointing from Dupont. Reading some other ratings, this beer seems to change a lot yearly. This one clearly lack of depth as there’s not much else behind the spiciness. The aroma and taste aren’t that bad, but the body is really weak and there’s no Dupont nice usual rustic features either.

PapaSkeetSkeet (1002) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - NOV 29, 2014
Color of dried apricots, very hazy. Yellow-dust-colored, medium-fine, uniform head which fades to film at a moderate-to-quick rate. Aroma is a sweet nectar, neutral, light caramel, sweet hay, apple pie, hint of granny smith underneath the sweetness. Little light brown sugar. Medium body, watery but slightly syrupy. Soft, medium coarseness in the carbonation. Flavor is light, clean demerara sweetness with an herbal, delicate bitterness to balance throughout the taste. Fades quietly. Some sweet pear. Very nice, yummy biere de garde. I love the bitterness balance in the flavor.

Zekada (427) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - NOV 29, 2014
Bottle from Systembolaget. Aroma is sour and has a bit of bread and some fruit. Pours light brown with a rich white head. Taste is complex, a mix of malts, caramel, fruits and a hint of nuts. Palate is fittingly thin and very drinkable. Overall a good beer with a complexity.

Niksko (520) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 12, 2014
Pours a darkish amber with a fizzy offwhite head. Nose is a little banana, raisin, clove, brown sugar, a slight damp funk. Flavor is dark fruit, plum, raisin, banana, slightly sharp on the mid palate, lots of clove on the finish, with a little brandy and some candi sugar. Medium body with a fizzy carbonation. Not bad.

Espuma de boa formação e persistência. Cor laranja escuro. Aroma de frutas amarelas e caramelo ao fundo. No sabor, pêssegos, malte, com médio e persistente amargor e médio dulçor. Muito boa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
