Throne of Belœil

Dupont “La Bière de Belœil” Ale (Belgium) – Vibrant and sour. Not as puckery as, say, Cantillon, but more aggressive than a red ale, and with layers of metal, spice, and density to offset the acidic bite. There’s a bit of yeasty stench, but it’s well-restrained. Really quite impressive. (12/11)

You pays your money

[glass & bottle]Dupont Calvados du Pays d’Auge (Normandy) – Hints of pink pepper dust, liquid metal, and some sun-browned earth. Plus apples, naturally. Fairly simple, but very pleasant. (7/08)
