Beer Review: Brassiere Dupont Foret

Foret, brewed by Brassiere Dupont, is a belgian saison which is Belgium's only 100% certified organic ale. I really love saisons and this beer was no exception. It was an absolutely incredible beer. Not the best Saison I've had but damn close. On to the review.

Brewery: Brassiere Dupont

Beer: Foret

Style: Saison/Farmhouse Ale

ABV: 7.50%

Recommended Glassware: Pint Glass, Tulip, Oversized Wine Glass

Serving Type: Tulip

Appearance- This beer poured a nice hazy, straw color with a huge, fluffy white head. Head retention and lacing were great!

Smell- Wonderful fruit aroma- peaches, bananas, apricot, lemon and maybe a hint of tart pineapple. Nice spices as well such as coriander and white pepper. Also a nice earthy yeast smell with hints of alcohol.

Taste- Very similar to the nose but with an added peppery spice and grassy hoppiness. A very nicely balanced beer.

Mouthfeel- A nice crisp, smooth body with high carbonation.

Overall- A fantastic beer that is very true to style. This beer is awesome for those hot summers as it is light and refreshing.

Score: Photobucket 4.5 out of 5 Buddhas
