4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours light golden with a wispy, most receding white head. Aroma of fruity esters: notes of bubble gum, peaches, banana, and honey. Taste is sweet sticky malts with a floral background of hops. Notes of citrus, honey, and alcohol. The greater emphasis on hops diminishes the perception of esters, but makes the beer a bit more well-rounded. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with lush carbonation and a dry finish. I wish I knew how old this bottle was, because the alcohol is more apparent than I would have expected from an 8.5% tripel. I have to say I feel the beer is a bit overcarbonated. I enjoyed this beer a bit more after it had been sitting covered for an hour. Interesting beer, and quite good!

Pours a hazy pale yellow/orange with a small off white head. Smell is yeast, spice, honey, fruit. Taste is spicy, pepper, sweet malt, tangerine, ending dry and crisp. Body is medium and the carbonation is crisp. Overall a nice flavorful blond.

Dark golden color with particles of unfiltered goodness. Disappointing head or lack thereof. Sharp aroma of breads and herbs. Nice bitterness and carbonation. First taste is bold but not overwhelming. Overall very enjoyable.

Bottle (750 ml). Shared by BeerGolem, thanks Christophe! Unclear orange with a huge white head and some lacing. Taste is slightly skunky at first but it then become very complex: citrus, Farmhouse, Dupont yeast, fresh cereals and slight herbal notes. Taste is slightly sweet with a strong Farmhouse character, citrus, skunky notes, really yeasty, cereals and slight alcohol. Medium body. Dry. Complex and drinkable. Another homerun by Dupont! Loved it!

Bouteille 750 ml. Achetée à Half Time (Poughkeepsie). Robe orange et épais collet blanc, typique des Dupont. Arôme: rustique, malt, levures, une touche de barnyard, houblon; un bouquet impressionant! L’équilibre est quasi parfait. Rafraîchissante, quasi sans failles... du gros stock!

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bigger sized, fluffy, slowly changing creamy white foamy head on top of a hazy darker yellow colored beer.
Aromas of sweat, grains, corn, card board, gass, herbs and some yeast.
Flavour is luckily better than aroma: yeast, fruits, peach, orange, tangerine, light banana and light lemon/citrus tones, vanilla, cream, porridge, corn, malts, bitters.
Aftertaste is malty, fruity, sprinkle of yeast, bitters and some floral tones.
Low carbo, soft mouthfeel, medium body and a creamy texture.
Strange beer: bad aroma, nice flavours, close to being a bit out of balance and some stingy ingredients...

heel lekker biertje van Brasserie Dupont. Het is wel een zwaarder, complex bier maar ideaal om langzaam te drinken op een terrasje in de zomer. Verfrissend met een juist mix tussen zoet, bitter en fruit.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
bottle@ home. Aroma critrico e di malto. la schiuma è pannosa e abbondante. Il colore giallo tendente all’ambrato. Gusto agrumato, quasi di scorze, e dolceamaro. il finale un po’ più luppolato. non mi ha entusiasmato, ma è piuttosto buona, più una ale, che una strong ale...

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 330 ml, at home. Poured into a tulip glass. ABV 8,5% 1,66€
Hazy golden colour on the body, with a nice two finger tall, white head. Good retention and light lacing left on the glass.
Aroma of yeast, a bit of wheat although I don’t see any wheat on the ingredients, some sugars. A bit fruity too.
Very nice and frutiy taste, with citrus notes, some sugars that feel more like honey, a bit of the yeast too. Sour-sweet at first, becomes mildly sweet/bitter on the aftertaste. Quite complex with a wide range of flavours, sweet and sour and bitter and everything.
Medium thick on the body, good -if not perfect- amount of carbonation.
Overall a very nice beer, I was pleasantly surprised by it.
