A coppery-blonde beer with fine hop aromas and a marked bitterness which makes it dry and very refreshing. The secondary fermentation in bottle continues long after bottling and give added layers of complexity with further storage.
When it comes to Belgian breweries, Brasserie Dupont in its current form is a mere whippersnapper dating from 1950. Located in Tourpes in the western Hainaut region Dupont is brewed on a working farm with significant brewing links back to the mid 1700s. Consequently, despite its relatively modern heritage, Duponts style draws heavily on the historic farmhouse ales of the wider region.
The brewhouse at Dupont also acknowledges the important brewing heritage of the region with typical copper boiling kettles dating to the 1920s. Interestingly, much conjecture has been made as to the fermentation yeast used at Dupont with many commentators convinced that, very unusually, a red wine strain is prevalent. Were certain this will remain a brewers secret though!
