Product Description:

The big news this week is the arrival of a new shipment from Belgium's Brasserie Dupont. The brewery specialises in producing saisons - farmhouse ales traditionally brewed in the winter to sustain the farm labourers during the summer (infact "saison" literally translates to "season"). Because of this origin saisons are refreshing and light beers, with a low terminal gravity which makes them remarkably dry.
 
In recent times there has been a trend towards producing high gravity "super saisons". Dupont produced the first of these beers in the 1950's under the Moinette label (Moinette Blonde and Moinette Brune). The Avec Les Bon Voeux reinforced this concept, and paved the way for this new style of beer.
 
Saisons are complex beers - fruity, dry and spicy. Much of the flavour comes from use ofs ome unique top fermenting yeast strains. These strains are believed to be ancestors of the family of yeast used in red wine production, evolving over decades of use in farmhouse breweries to become what they are today.These lend spicy flavours, reminiscent of orange peel, clove, allspice, citrus, cut grass and coriander. Saisons also have a distinct 'funkyness' to them - earthy and rustic flavours as comforting as a good red wine. Dupont's beers have a more aggressive hop character than other Belgian ales, adding to the complexity and refreshing nature of the style.
 
With the exception of the Moinette and Blanche de Hainaut, the Dupon tbeers come in 750mL corked champagne-style bottles. This is the traditional bottling method of farmhouse breweries such as Dupont,a  logical extension given the vinous characters of the beers, and not surprising considering they are such close neighbours to France!
 
This complex style could also benefit from several years in a cellar.

Tasting Notes:

Duponts Belgian Amber ale is brewed with a mixture of 5 different malt varieties, and like most of Duponts beers, is hopped more aggressively than what is usually the case in Belgium. The beer is dry, refreshing and astoundingly complex.

Featured Beer
Domain Dupont Pommeau de Normandie 700ml

A17% ABV blend of one-year-old calvados, and mout, apple juice that has fermented to around 1% ABV. After being carefully blended in oak casks, Pommeau is transferred to 4-5 year old 400L oak casks, where it is carefully matured for at least 30 months. Perhaps Dupont’s greatest creation, Pommeau displays amazing complexities of vanilla, crystallised apples, prunes and toasted hazelnuts. Absolutely amazing.
