rdb84 (396) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 20, 2015
Murky copper gold, gentle carbonation, medium head. A: typical Dupont yeast, bit sour, lemon and lime, hay, potato, caramel malts. T: holds middle between Blonde and Speciale Belge. Slightly sour beginning, smooth, followed by the malts, yeasty middle with lime note and gentle boozy touch. Aftertaste is a bit sour, dry, sticky. Not bad.

McWorta (1136) - LUXEMBOURG - NOV 8, 2015
Lightly opalescent amber-copper (~18EBC) colour with a large frothy lightly beige head and good lacings. Aromas of barnyard, hay, farmhouse, lightly burnt toffee and autumn leaves develop with a pinch of earthy-herbal notes. Effervescent and rather smooth with a an elegant full body. Herbal, malty yet earthy sweetness builds the backbone but leaves enough room to let some funky yeastyness shine and develops a nicely balanced herbal bitterness. Lasting sweet öight bitter finish. Well developped and maturing is something to look forward to.

Se da sempre Dupont è stato garanzia di qualità,questa birra non fa altro che confermarlo! Chiara,schiumona alta,spessa e compatta..aroma erbacea,non solo di luppolo ma di veri e propri campi arati..sentori piccanti e lievemente acidula,malto come sfondo..gusto identico,non invadente,pulito e secco nel finale..non si riesce a credere che possa avere 8,5 gradi! Splendida

Shark_Pants (504) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 31, 2015
Cloudy amber with decent rocky head. Strong dried fruit aromas - dried apricot, pear, cherry, along with strong malty notes and some bubblegum. The taste reflects the dried fruits - apricot and cherry particularly, with a caramel and candi sugar malt sweetness too. A firm bitterness in the finish helps balance it. Alcohol is noticeable and, with a bit of rough bitterness, makes this less polished than some of Dupont’s other offerings. Medium bodied and somewhat acidic. Not bad.

bartlebier (2820) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - OCT 18, 2015
75cl bb08/2015, had a bottle of this once before. - Cloudy beige-amber pour, good organic cap. Odd earthy aroma of orchard fruits fallen and slowly rotting on moist pasture, quince pear and apple on their natural life path toward homemade marmelade - pierced by a good whiff of Belgian jenever alcohol, more than in Moinette. A grassy bitterness overconquers the spéciale belge style dry caramalts at first, bitterhusky cereals and wet grass make for a hard-to-love chicory-root-bitter mix of all essential Belgian soil. Upon pouring over half of the bottle and letting it chambre: both more honey sweetness and more of that peppery, earthy, herbal hop and grain husk bitterness. Among the harsher Duponts brews.

willisread (1299) - Tokyo, JAPAN - OCT 13, 2015
Bottle from Tanakaya shared a tasting. Pours a hazy light brown with a big soapy saison-like head. Dried prune and apricot on the nose with some bread dough and dupont yeast. The fruit really comes out as it warms up. Almost like a fig compote on whole-grain bread. The alcohol is there, but not overly so. Nice fruity and dry finish.
