Moinette Blonde has a robust body and a dry finish, pairing perfectly with rich and hearty meals, like stews and classic French fare.
Originally known as “Abbaye de la Moinette” when it was first produced in 1955, Moinette Blonde’s name is a reference to an old French word used to describe the lush countryside that has surrounded the brewery for centuries. A strong Saison, it is Dupont’s best-seller in Belgium but is growing in popularity as a beloved favorite of many beer aficionados in the States. The beer is brewed using a selected strain of Dupont’s signature yeast, which imparts the beer with an unexpected herbal bouquet of ginger, hops and spice in addition to its traditional Saison flavors of yeast and brioche. Pouring a brilliant copper color, the beer sparkles with a light fruit flavor of pears that is balanced by an end note of snappy hop bitterness.

“Insane head retention leaves an incredible Brussels lace all the way down the glass, hazy hay yellow hue show this brew is in the raw. Smell: spicy, yeasty, fruity, lively and very aromatic at that. Rustic with hints of coriander and black pepper like phenols. What a wild nose! Finishes with a cloudy mélange of a rustic dryness of flavors in the beginning. A killer Saison, the dreamy flavor nearly numbs the senses of the taste buds. A prize brew…and one I will make sure to have around.”—Jason Alstrom, Beer Advocate
