COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Famous for their Saison Ale, Brasserie Dupont is also renowned in Belgium for their Moinette. This sturdy ale has an herbal bouquet that indicates its well hopped character. But unlike its drier cousin, its body is fuller and rounder with a slightly sweet finish. Delicious before a meal and with foods like marinated meats and barbecue.

Een lekker donker bier met veel smaak aan zoals het hoort te zijn. De blond is wel nog beter vind ik

GoufCustom (802) - HONG KONG - JUL 27, 2014


330 ml bottle bought at Gorgeous Wine & Cigar in Yuen Long.

Looks: Cloudy hazy amber brown colour with thin trace of yeast sediments; Half-finger head and off- white foam which fades in 40 seconds; Very good sticky lacing with notable slight carbonation.

Aroma: Slightly fragrant amber malt, with light roastyness, light banana, vanilla, caramel, molasses, Bel yeast and light phenolics.

Taste: Medium sweet malt, with light roastyness, very strong caramel, thick molasses, very light alcohol, hint of dark fruits, Bel yeast, lime, moderate bitter hops and sharp grass.

Body: Medium. Quite thick and slick palate.

Mouth Feel: Good amber maltyness with just enough roasty taste. Caramel dominates, really good molasses and hidden booze for loveable sweetness, dark fruit ester is very low but tastable. Yeasty with bits of spiciness. Simple but subtle.

Hoppiness: No aroma; Lime, sharp grass and light spice in taste. Bitterness is quite notable for a Dubbel for an abrupt, well-balanced bitter-sweet finish.

After Taste: Slightly dry. Malty, roasty and hoppy to mouth.

Comments: As a supposedly top Dubbel, this one is a bit simple, somewhat empty, with too few esters and taste varieties. Yet it’s well-malted and roasted, with almost all other tastes are well amplified. Solid, but can’t beat my favorite Chimay Red and Westmalle Dubbel.

Bottle at Hiranoya. More fruity than I remember, dark fruit, raisins, plums, yeasty. Sweetness, great stuff. Toffee. Yum.

Moravius (451) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUL 3, 2014
Flasche (33 cl). - Etwas stumpfes Braunrot, trüb. - In der Nase die unverkennbare Dupont-Hefe, milder Mokka mit erdigem Einschlag, vornehme obergärige Fruchtigkeit. - Im Antrunk das typische Dupont-Aroma. Röstmalzig-würzig, vornehm herb-fruchtige Orangenbittere, zarte modrige Kellernote. Mild rezent, weich im Mund. Trockener, krautig-hopfenherber, erdiger Abgang. - Großartiges Brune. Da ist nichts von der plumpen, einfallslosen bananigen Süße mancher belgischen Biere, alles ist vielschichtig und spannungsgeladen. Eigenwillig, erdig-derb und doch vornehm, perfekt ausbalanciert. Schmeckte mir sogar noch besser als Moinette Blonde, obwohl Röstmalz und Dupont-Hefe nicht völlig reibungslos harmonieren.

martjoobolut (649) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 8, 2014
0,33L bottle, BB 09.2015. Pours dark amber with off-white head. The head stays. Aroma is caramel, brown sugar, dark fruits, apples, and yeast. Taste is malt, yeast, dark fruits, caramel, and some alcohol. Finish is fruity bitter with some alcohol. Overall: very enjoyable, but alcohol is a little bit too obvious.

freretoc (634) - Besançon, FRANCE - JUN 4, 2014
Bu en bouteille de 75cl, belle bičre brune ambrée, grosse mousse blanche trčs intense et une effervescence trčs violente. En bouche attaque sur le caramel et le pruneau prégnance sur le grillé en fin de bouche mais effervescence trop forte voire désagréable.

Splitenz (331) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 12, 2014
A lovely Belgian brown this. Had to have two as the Obelix burger took a while at Comics Café. A nice malt that leans towards the sweet and not as bitter or sour as I first thought. Good dinner companion.

PapaVillum (424) - Valby, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2014
33 cl / 330 ml, flaske, 8,5 % ABV, gave fra Michele og Gert - tak! 10. maj 2014. Ufiltreret rødbrun Bruine med minimal offwhite skumtop på et par mm. Ikke kraftig duft, men noter af tørret frugt og gær-ditto efter eftergæringen på flasken. Smagen er mere bitter, end jeg regnede med. Sødmen er der, men den spiller 2. violin. Kuldioxid'et er på medium niveau.
