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.

Bottle (330 ml). Gusher. Slightly hazy amber brown with a small ring of off-white foam and little to no lacing. Aroma is spicy with herbal notes, malt/caramel and fruits/berries. Taste is slightly sweet and slightly/moderately spicy with malt/caramel, fruits/berries and a light alcohol warming. Medium body. Lively carbonation at first, but it become low carbonation after a few minutes. Dry and spicy finish. Not bad at all, but the gusher + weird carbonation tell me there’s probably a little something wrong with this one. Still a quite tasty Belgian.

RexTalionis (2119) - FINLAND - APR 6, 2014
Bottled. Pours hazy dark amber in color with an off-white head. Sweet ripe dark fruityness in aroma. Sweet maltyness, bit of yeasty spicyness in taste. Feels a bit dull on the whole as this brew didnt offer much neither in aroma or tastewise. Even a bit boozy towards the finish.

Draft. Extremely sweet and raisiny, no dryness, no hops, just waves of caramel and dark fruit with a touch of yeast.

shorlin (590) - St. John’s, Newfoundland, CANADA - MAR 17, 2014
Beautiful looking beer, excellent lacing, reddish-brown with a large off-white head. Aroma has some caramel, brown sugar and dried fruit. Really nice. Palate is a bit thin for the style, medium-bodied. Heavy-ish on the sweetness and light bitterness. Tastes different than it smells. Alcohol is much more evident than in the Blonde.

tricksta_p (627) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAR 12, 2014
Malty aroma of brown sugar, dark fruits, yeast, caramel, raisins. Flavour is sweet malt, brown sugar. All things considered this has a surprisingly moderate/medium sweetness, with some lingering bitterness in the aftertaste.
