Avec Les Bons Voeux

750 mL corked & caged bottle. Dimpled bottom, Champagne style. Green’s, Buford Highway, Atlanta, GA, USA. 2006 vintage.

Extremely interesting beer.

Lovely pour with mountains of frothy, deeply pillowed head, and a light golden hazed body. Lacing is superb. Nice looker.

OK, here we go with an explanation of this beer. The best I can offer is a “hoppy, thick Saison”. All the characteristics of Saison Dupont with a much hoppier edge. Mouthfeel is huge for the style and lacks any feeling of a let-down. Beautiful balance as the hops give EXACTLY the correct amount of bitterness to complement the funk notes of the style.

Wave after wave of pleasure. Small bubbles of carbonation stimulate the palate, but their softness is extreme. Velvet like. Gets sweeter and sweeter as the beer drinks.

Best beer I’ve had in a while.
