Beer Review: Brasserie Dupont, Avec Les Bons Voeux

Overall: 4.75 out of 5, sweet malt and pepper yeast aroma.

Category: Saison (Holiday)

Appearance: Hazy bright golden color, persistent off-white head

Aroma: Sweet Bread Dough, white pepper, almond

Mouthfeel: Medium Full, effervescent carbonation

Flavors: Blends of cracked pepper and sweet bread dough, finishes dry with a sharp carbonic bite. You cannot pick up the 9.5% ABV. For anyone who doesn’t want a winter ale’s spice profile, this beer is your winter jam! There are some serious complex bready notes.

Aftertaste: Perfect blend of bitterness, carbonation, finishing dry with a sudden stop makes for a unique aftertaste.

Food Pairing: I think this beer would be fun to pair with a sweet bready dessert, especially if vanilla and almonds are used. The carbonation and bitterness would balance out the sweetness of the dessert, brining other flavors into the forefront.
