Brasserie Dupont Avec Les Bons Voeux

What the brewers say

“Brewed with a selection of Dupont’s signature yeasts and given a longer maturation phase, the resulting beer has a full and malty richness with flavors of banana, clove, and lemon peel.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Honey-like with an underlying tangerine and light floral character. Slight earthiness in the back. A pleasant mix, in almost perfect balance, of the fruity, citrusy ester notes and phenolic spice.”

Flavor: “The beer has a honey-like sweetness that hits up front along with some tropical fruit notes—pineapple, a little melon, some caramel apple, a little orange. The spice character helps to balance the sweet a bit with a little bitterness, and it finishes fairly dry for how sweet it starts. High carbonation helps scrub the palate and makes this fairly refreshing (despite its strength).”

Overall: “Really enjoyed the way the carbonation helped to bring out the tropical esters in this beer. For a stronger saison example, it’s very-well balanced and not overpowering. Bit on the sweet side, but interesting fruit and funky flavors. The orange esters play into the spicy alcohol nicely, and the high carbonation finishes nicely.”
