Brasserie Dupont Biere de Miel (Biologique) – Saison at 8% ABV

Brasserie Dupont Biere de Miel (Biologique) Saison at 8% ABV ($2.85 from Solo Liquor Copperfield, 250ml, best before 03/2015)

Pours cloudy medium gold with lots of suspended particulate, one finger of white head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, no lacing. (3/5) Nose is honey, apples, floral, mild citrus and funk. (7/10) Taste is mild to moderate sweet, mild bitter. (7/10) Light to medium body, low carbonation, and an off-dry mildly bitter finish. (3/5)

Flavour is dominated by honey, fruit, and floral, but there’s a definite Belgian yeast character and dusty funk in the background.  Not unpleasant, but there’s a distinct feeling of age and I can’t help but wonder how this tastes new. A little disappointing by comparison to the Saison Dupont. (12/20)

6.5/10 #ryansbooze ryansbooze.com
