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.

Pours dark amber/brown with a minimal white head. Fruity nose and the aroma of dry fruits, herbs, caramel and toast. Tastes malty sweet with a light bitter, dry and alcoholic finish. Very soft carbonation but full bodied. Good one.

It pours amber with a full head. It is mostly clear, the head is off white and takes a white to disappear. There are aromas of plums, apples, toast, cherries, and a bit of rose. It has flavors of toast and caramel with raisins, apple, and plums. It has a medium feel and has moderate carbonation. It has a dry finish with a touch of tart.

Vells (1241) - Rīga, Latvija, LATVIA - DEC 29, 2015
Decent brew, tho bit underpowered for good dubbel. Lovely malty background, some caramel, dried fruits, sugary, light herbal hops, bit spicy. Moderate to light sweetness, light bitterness. Decent, but nothing too fancy

Kauge (1037) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 15, 2015
Bottle from Beer Express. BB 09/2016. Gusher - had to do some cleaning up after opening the bottle. Pours very murky and full of bits despite the many weeks in the cellar. The aroma is very delicately sweet, caramel, candy, flowers, cinnamon, soaked raisins. Tastes along the same lines - cinnamon and vanilla biscuits, soft stone fruits, and a tingle of spice and alcohol in the finish. Soft in the mouth with a small but prickly carbonation. Overall a bit too sweet but very nice nonetheless.

Milter (605) - Nyborg, DENMARK - DEC 9, 2015
Spændende velsmagende øl. Tilpas sød finish og aligevel let bitterhed i smagen. Flot farve og skum.

Marko (4542) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 19, 2015
At the Craft Room (thanks guys!). Dark amber-brown body. Corky, sweet aroma, raisins and dust, pungent and nice. Dry taste, raisins, slightly woody, slightly high carbonation. A touch of bitterness. A solid maltiess overall. No flaw really, but not brilliant. All in all, a good beer.

Bottle. Pours Dark Amber with a Beige head. Nice sweet and yeasty aroma. Caramel and berries. Nice and malty with a touch of booze and a plummy sweetness. Full flavoured. Very nice.
