The first thing you’ll notice is the nose. Like it’s saison counterpart it is heavy on banana. However after it sits in the glass for a bit, the banana gives way to a brighter herbal scent. Think Thyme, basil, not sage oregano. It also is crisper than the Saison. Other’s have said it is sweet but again, compared to other Dupont varieties, I think it is much crisper and has a bite at the end. For pairing, the main thing I would say is stay away from acids, seriously. Even a light vinegar will likely conflict with that after bite. It will be great with greens and the strong banana will pick up citrus but only use the zest. It’s rich but still has a blond lightness. Cream should be good but not butter. Fish will work and you could even do grilled red meat for something almost tropical. Again, just stay away from the acids. Be careful with onions (sweet and not raw) but chilies could pair nicely. I’d be curios to see how it tastes with mushrooms although I’m not recommending. You can go a lot of different directions for cheese. I’d be careful with goat, but if it were the right type, I think this would be wonderful. Again, the banana nose, and the very bright carbonation would be wonderful with a fresh cheese but the "liquor" bite at the end, will conflict with goat cheese sour flavor if you are not careful. Stinky cheeses? Go for it. (although others might disagree) The only thing I would definitely shy away from are deep nutty cheeses. Many sheep cheese or gruyere might work but more than likely, you won’t do the beer of the cheese a favor.

Lilja (2785) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 20, 2016
Flaska från Saveur Bieré. Smak och doft av humle, citrus, lime, örter, gräs, koriander, peppar med toner av aprikos och persika och aningar av körsbär. Torr, fin sötma, beska med smak av citrusskal. Gott!

Garrold (4243) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2016
330ml bottle, sat outside a neighbourhood bar, on Rue Haute, Brussels. It’s very warm, and a little humid, and this beer is really, really cold. It’s already a winner. Peachy gold. Whipped egg white head. Nose has sweet yeast. Bready malts. Soft, grassy, hop. Taste is sweet and bready, first off, getting fairly punchy bitter. Soft, massaging mouthfeel. Medium body. Finishes a nice balance of yeasty sweet and grassy bitter. Super easy drinking at the ABV.

ozzatoadisback (85) - ITALY - SEP 11, 2016
Light orange colour, hazy. Big fluffy white head, good enough retention and lacing. Sweet nose with rich ripe fruit (orange, apricot, pear), sugar and a hint of earthiness/yeast. Taste brings the same notes plus maybe a hint of honey. It’s on the sweet side as expected from the nose, but nicely balanced by a delicate herbal/grassy finish, though not too dry. Alcohol is well hidden. Medium body, dense carbonation, fruity aftertaste. Nice *(This was a year and half old so it may have lost a bit of hop punch).

Yummy Belgian strong ale. Dupont comes through again with a hoppy, full flavored ale.

dnicolaescu (1975) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - SEP 4, 2016
BOTTLE at 100 Beri, Bucharest. Spicy and very citrusy, tangerine, witbier-like fruitiness, maybe too perfumey, a good deal of band aid. The taste is also fruity with quite a harsh hot phenolic spiciness. Kinda harsh.

On ne ventera jamais assez la qualité des bières de la brasserie Dupont et la Moinette Blonde en est un des exemples. Son nom proviendrait d’une déformation du vieux français « moëne » signifiant « marécage, lieu humide ». Nous en sommes très loin avec une bière toute en fraîcheur. La première attaque, discrète, révèle un coté beurré qui laisse place très rapidement à la puissance du houblon et à des notes épicées et d’agrumes. Dans le temps vient ensuite en bouche les levures d’une riche complexité et d’une très bonne longueur. Sa couleur dorée, légèrement trouble et sa mousse persistante finira par vous séduire. Essayez là sur un camembert au lait cru, le mariage est remarquable.

susonagger (196) - spain, - AUG 7, 2016
De color rubio cobrizo con muchos aromas del lúpulo fino, la "rubia Moinette" es una cerveza muy refrescante, gracias a su sutil equilibrio entre dulce, amargo y afrutado. La selección de las levaduras utilizadas en su elaboración dan a esta cerveza su aroma y sabor típico. Tiene una segunda fermentación en botella, que se prolonga durante mucho tiempo lo que le aporta un sabor complejo y un bouquet armónico.

bewyder (420) - FRANCE - AUG 5, 2016
Dorée claire orangée, trouble, plutôt équilibrée sur le fruité, l’amertume et la douceur, notes de blé, l’alcool ressort pas mal. Bonne mais décevante sur ce que j’en avais entendu. Bouteille 33cl bue à l’Académie de la bière, Paris, France, le 29/07/2016.
