Brewed in the traditional style of the Carmelite nuns, which goes back to the 17th century, this one displays a very persistent, creamy soft head with light yeasty malt aromas. Smooth, fruity and lightly sweet in the mouth, it is perilously easy to drink. Finishes with light, nutty bitterness. The high alcohol is barely noticeable until you attempt to stand up.
Undergoes a secondary fermentation in the bottle (bottle-conditioned) so expect a hazy appearance. Head is foamy and persistent with soft, slightly yeasty and citrusy aromas. Generously full flavours reveal fruity and nutty character with an initial touch of sweetness, finishing with appetizingly dry bitterness.
Shows bottle-conditioned haze, frothy lively head, though dark amber in colour. Warm fruity and malty aromas with a whiff of spice introduce the soft mouthful of rich dried fruit and malt flavours, rounded out with a splash of dark chocolate. A perfect warmer for cold winter evenings.
Very similar appearance to Dupont’s Saison, though nose is more astringent with a lightly sour note. Really delicious in the mouth with beautifully balanced citrus, banana and rich, creamy sensations. Soft, rounded spicy finish has a touch of bitterness.
