Brasserie Dupont

Saison Dupont

There's a great video on YT on what a Saison is. In short, it's a farmhouse ale (pale or sometimes red) that was historically served to farm workers as a clean source of hydration. Without any distinctive characters and lower in alcohol then, the "Saison" only really gained it's signature when the house in question came into the equation. Also, based on my research, the checkered "Vielle Provision" yellow labels are the export labels.

As it was here, the Dupont Brewery's Saison is generally cloudy, very carbonated via bottle conditioning, zesty and spicy, bitter with a hint of sour, and a dry hoppy finish. For me, this is truly "The beer for all seasons" - the flavours are just so versatile. Perfect for a warm summer afternoon in the park, yet complex enough to pair with a 3-star dish.

Brasserie Cantillon

Classic Gueuze Lambic

I rarely post beer on Delectable, mostly because I have a different app for that but Lambics get special consideration. And as far as Gueuze’s go, it doesn’t get much better than Cantillon’s Classic. Lambics are one of the few beers that can stand extended aging and this 375mL was bottled in 2016 so it’s still pretty young. This is hugely crushable and just about everything I want in a Gueuze. Bright stone fruit, earth and minerals. Incredible balance. Lovely acidity. I could drink this all day long and pairs well with almost any meal. — a month ago

Switching to a Dutch Trappist. Very soft, lacking character. Nice, but that's it — 20 days ago

Gueuze 100% Lambic Bio Malt

Drank after a Boon Geueze (which I enjoyed) and it was far better, more refined and delectable. — 12 days ago

Brouwerij Drie Fonteinen

Cuvée Armand & Gaston 3 Fonteinen Lambikbrouwerij Geuzestekerij

If you like aged champagne, this is the beer to try. Tart, funky barnyard notes mixed with fruit. Sour, but balanced. Belgian treat for sure. — a month ago

Abbaye de Scourmont
