Dupont Biolégère

Bières sans frontières, . For more selections see previous post.

ABV: 3.5%
Origin: Tourpes, Hainaut, Wallonie


Dupont, founded in 1844, is the highest regarded of the traditional farmhouse breweries of Hainaut though its talents stretch far beyond the traditional parameters of this sturdy, rustic style. There are several organic beers, including this “bio mild”, launched in 1992 as a rare Belgian speciality at near-table beer  gravity.

It’s a cloudy dark straw colour with a fine white head and a polleny, slightly farmyardy aroma wiht flowery and light malt notes. A toasty, crisp and smooth palate has lemon and orange flavours with a good dose of hops and herbal bitterness. The cleansing swallow leads to a creamy and rounded lime-tinged finish with a note of vegetal hops. This final flourish is slightly underplayed compared to the palate, but this is still a refreshing and well-made beer.
