This French-style country ale is deep amber in color. With a toasty, sweet caramel start, it finishes with just enough hops to clean off the palate. Bon Appetit!

UPDATED: APR 11, 2005 Bottled. Great stuff. Nice malty aroma behind a head that disappears a little too quickly. Taste of orange and some light spiciness comes through, finishes off with a note of red wine.
Re-rate, 4/10/05. Okay, this was one of my earlier ratings, and I finally had a second bottle from my original sixer (others have gone out in trade). My impressions still hold true, but it’s just not worth the 4.1 I first assigned. A slight note of brett mars the second sampling, but this is a two-year old bottle. I had taken the name of the style literally and was cellaring it outside my fridge, probably not a good idea for a 5.9% beer.

Two Brothers Domaine DuPage is a delectable brew. Copper pour with a short-lived head. Aroma is fruity and funky. Taste is like a funky orange in a refreshing kind of way. Finish is slight boozy kind of like in a wine way. Domaine DuPage is a tasty brew that goes down easy in Summer.

Bottle pour into tulip glass from Machester Wine & Liquors. Aroma is toasted malt with caramel and some yeast, ?light European hops? Appearance is clear, dark amber with ephemeral, fizzy (soda-like) off-white head, nice sparkle and no lacing. Taste is as aroma, with mild fruit ending. Palate is medium bodied with thin texture, average carbonation and sweet caramel/light fruit finish. Overall, not much to it, even for the style, though pleasant enough.

Bottle thanks to Matt! Color is a clear copper no head. Aroma is weak East and caramel malt. Flavor is the same with entirely too much caramel and almost no yeast. Thin body and almost watery texture. Pretty weak showing overall, mostly just caramel.
