Moinette Ambrée is a top-fermented amber beer, refermented in the bottle. First crafted in 2016, Moinette Ambrée enables us to present a trilogy centred on one of our star products, La Moinette. Its colour, flavour and aromas result from brewing a blend of five different malts. When tasting this beer, the aromas of special malts and fine hops dominate: the combination of fruit and bitterness give Moinette Ambrée its beautiful balance. Genuine refermentation in the bottle, which may be extended by several months in your cellar, creates this harmonious and refreshing beer. To be consumed at cellar temperature (12°C) or lightly refrigerated, as an aperitif or with a meal: particularly good with foie gras and onion jam on a toast.

andrepintado (3544) - Lisbon, PORTUGAL - AUG 20, 2017
Bottle. Color is dark orange to brown. Head is thin. Taste is medium bitter and sweet. Aroma and flavour is spices, caramel, nutty, super high phenolic.

loscovar (595) - Trieste, ITALY, Villeneuvette, FRANCE - JUL 7, 2017
bottle from la superette a bieres. Pretty solid, but there it a small "je ne sait quoi" That make it not to my taste

tricksta_p (4879) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUN 1, 2017
Bottle from Beergium. Aroma is malt, caramel, notes of stewed fruit, spicy notes, cookies, dried fruits. Flavour is medium sweet and moderate bitter. Body is medium. Robust and balanced, quite the throwback aromatic profile for Dupont. Hard to get excited about this beer, but it was definitely enjoyable.

Sissio (1698) - Orsenigo, ITALY - MAY 29, 2017
bottle @ home light hazy copper, cappucino head with lacings caramel, toffe, butterscotch, biscuit, maraschino cream, very drinkabe, monchery, light bitter aftertaste, riped peach

Ysok02 (1710) - Mons, BELGIUM - MAY 25, 2017
Robe ambrée, fine mousse. Nez élégant où l’on retrouve des notes de caramel, de malt légèrement torréfié, de noisettes, de fruits mûrs, pointe de levure et de fruits confits. Bouche à l’attaque épicée, une belle ampleur, des notes épicées, une bulle fine et élégante, de la tension et une finale large et épicée. Une très belle bière de soif malgré son taux d’alcool.

tderoeck (10002) - Gent, BELGIUM - MAY 17, 2017
5/V/17 - 75cl bottle from Geers (Oostakker) @ Abeels visiting (home) - BB: II/2019 (2017-571) Thanks to all for sharing the beers!

Clear dark orange to amber beer, big solid creamy yellowish head, stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: pretty sweet malts, caramel, some banana, dried fruits, bit hoppy. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: pretty fruity, sweet malts, caramel, bitter hops, bit yeasty. Aftertaste: very bitter, malty, some citrus, bit of a chemical bitterness, quite some banana, caramel.

bartlebier (4080) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAY 9, 2017
33cl bb02/2020, Miorge April 2017. - Bref: Moinette Blonde + Moinette Brune = not Moinette Ambrée. Very odd Dupont release, it seems as if to keep the local drinkers supllied with their abvs, sacrificing flavour to alcohol, as far as I’m concerned: a good whiff of tripel-style alcohols, sugars, jenever phenols and pepper & peperkoek gingerbread in aroma, with only a hint of the malts underneath. Thinnish, decently rounded but also metallic with a whiff of honey in flavour, but no real punch to put its 8,5% to work. It’s dryish like speculoos, but also too much of a kick in the liver to be sessionable. This seems like a good 20 year step back for Dupont, after its Dry hopping experiments. Also: where did that excellent speciale belge go?

Bosbouw (2957) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - APR 23, 2017
Karamel kleur met een goede kraag. Ruikt zoetig, kruiden, mout. Smaakt zoetig, kruiden, mout.

hawthorne00 (4030) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 21, 2017
Bottle 750ml - thought I was buying the Brune tbh. Didn’t know there was a new one. Didn’t have any foie gras but it went well with duck live mousse toast. Clear amber with an off white head that lasts very well. Aroma of baking bread, prunes, soil, mild spices. Medium bodied, medium high carbonation. Malty with bread crusts, dried fruit. A little sourness like cherry vinegar. Dough and insistent spices. Alcohol is well hidden. Not all that sweet with a dryish and quite bitter finish. This sort of beer can be a bit dull, but this has that Dupont thing: refined yet still rustic. A fair bit of sediment but it’s surprisingly easy to keep out of the second glass.

Travlr (25523) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - APR 15, 2017
Bottle. Clear deep golden color, big fluffy tan head with good retention. Aroma of spiced raw brown bread. Taste is peppery toasted caramel. Very tasty.
