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.

Had Vielle Provision and thought it was great, so I picked this up. Its delicious. It has a fair bit of hoppiness for a dubbel style, but I think it balances quite nicely. There is also a bit of fruitiness which is very nice. I would prefer if the color was a little darker. Also, the mouthfeel is a little thin for me.

1991 bottle at akkurat. This vintage is amazingly good. Super clear mahogony color with a small off white head that quickly fades away. The aroma of this beer!! Amazing! Tons of caramel, toffee, yeast, old musty cellar, caramelized figs. The flavour is on top as well, pretty much all the things you get in the aroma you get in the taste with the most well balanced flavour and complexity I’ve ever had. Holy beer this.

willisread (808) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUN 23, 2015
Bottle from Tanakaya. Poured into a Liefman’s glass. Clear dark brown with a small head that dissipated fairly quickly. Nice dupont yeast smell on the nose with some prune, praline, molasses and caramel aromas present. Slight cola-like mouthfeel with average carbonatin and a medium body. Nice fruit forward beer that’s sweet on the palate. Nice finish that has a touch of dryness but is overall sweet. Definitely prefer their drier beers, but this is OK for the style.

Alusmamuts (1010) - LATVIA - JUN 13, 2015
Dark brown with rich yellow head. Aroma of roasted caramel, same it the taste in the mixture with fruity yeast notes. MIld bitterness on backround, says in the aftertaste.

0,75 l bottle. Thick cap. Dark, cloudy. Hoppy taste, with strong caramel taste, that stays alao as aftertaste.

jamaty (1234) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 10, 2015
Bonito color castaño, turbia. Dos dedos de espuma muy efervescente. Aroma ligero a malta. Cuerpo ligero y carbonatación notable, Agradable sabor a caramelo y malta tostada, con algo de chocolate. Final algo plano, ligeramente especiado.

Aroma of caramel, malt, spices, herbs. At the beginning the taste is sweet like a caramel but after a while it turns into bouquet of spices, malt and bitter hops. Great beer

Vignale (2534) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 18, 2015
Flaska från beernavigator. En något år gmmal flska. Coca cola-färgad, klar, lågt skum. Söt doft av russin, madeira, torkade körsbär och tranbär och karamell. Söt och fruktig men viss beska finns kvar från humlen och balanserar något. Fina smaker av russin och annan torkad frukt, viss madeiraisering. Trevlig dubbel.

Holmen1 (3537) - Stavanger, NORWAY - APR 16, 2015
Fra flaske på RBHD-samling på Fridtjofen april-15: rødgylden med hvitt skum som varrer. Mørke karameller, overmodne bær og halvvisne blomster i aroma og smak. Halvtørr. Et delikat understatement innen stilen.

Sigmund (5723) - Tau, NORWAY - APR 14, 2015
Shared 330 ml bottle at local tasting. Brown colour, off-white head. Moderate aroma, hints of brown kandij sugar and herbs. The flavour is more defined, brown kandij sugar without being too sweet, herbs and hops. Nice enough.
