Slightly dusty nose that dissipates in time, revealing a fruit laden caramel.
Briar patch, alpine fruit, hints of cotton candy. The acidity after 6 years is still holding, singing brightly and long. Medium bodied, and well worth it.
A worthy wine - and a good one to ponder future civility with. Decency may have a chance here again. :) — 24 days ago

Ok normally I don’t post beer here. But for this time only....
Many of you will know but this beer played an important role in the aging of beers development.
I cant hardly imagine a beer that develops so well as Orval. From dark yellow to amber in color and more toffee notes yet still firm bitters. — 6 months 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. — 2 months 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. — 3 months ago
