3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Saison brewery Dupont became so important because it remained true to its heritage and varied upon one of the old brewing traditions which remained alive in Belgium - the main thing which makes Belgium such an interesting beer country - but their old-fashioned approach is equally applicable to this unpasteurized ’pils’, of which many more existed some decades ago. It has a moussy, cream white, stable head and a deep golden blond colour, just a tad darker than usual, with a light haze of dusty yeast. The aroma is a genuine, pleasantly bready malt sweetness with honeyish touch and delicately flowery hops; rounded palate with honeyish malt sweetishness, soft with mild carbo and a long but gentle, herbal hop bitterishness and agreeable dryness. I agree with the people here stating that Belgium hardly has any good lagers, but if it has, this is one of them.

A little bit hazy; pale straw yellow. Nice malt aroma, some malt sweetness, a touch of hop aroma. Fairly clean flavor, malt forward, a touch sweet. Modest bitterness. Very easy drinking beer. I think that it’s 6% ABV, not 5%.

Pale yellow in colour. There’s a background fruity sweetness to this one which contrasts strongly against the strong bitter finish.
