Color of clear ruby mixed with orange color, light. Nose of dried strawberry, aldehyde, spice, prune, complexes and fragrant, also some dates, a bit wet mushroom, and refine acidity note. Taste of refined acidity and subtle sweetness, fermented cabbage, ripe cranberry, dried strawberry, some Unami, hint of zest, almost no tannins, a bit peppery, and a bit flowering note. Taste is refined too. Aftertaste is medium long with savory notes from the taste plus oak. Nice one. — a month ago
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. — 4 months ago
heavy-hitting barleywine! 10.2% alcohol, and you can tell, but not in a hot way - more of a rich, boozy, caramel-y way. this beer is *almost* too much, but for these darkest, longest days of winter - the name translates to “winter solstice” - it’s perfect. drinking it all on its own under a blanket on a cold night is just right. — 25 days ago

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. — 4 months ago
