Two Brothers Domaine DuPage French Style Country Ale

Posted: April 11, 2015 in Biere de Garde, Reviews, Two Brothers Brewing Company

It’s been awhile since I’ve had a biere de garde. I was in the mood for something different, so I decided to crack this one open while watching television after work. After the last beer I reviewed, I definitely needed something a bit more satisfying and little less explode-y. Let’s see how this was.

ABV: 5.9%

Style: Biere de Garde

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Inspired by the brothers time living in France, this food-friendly ale is deep amber in color, with a toasty and sweet caramel start. It finishes with just enough hops to clean off the palate. Bon Appetit!”

Random: I really don’t like the Yankees radio announcers. They’re possibly more annoying than the ones for the Mets, and that’s saying a lot.

This beer poured with a one finger, thick ecru colored head that dissipated slowly. It left light lacing on the glass. The body had high carbonation visible in the slightly cloudy, mahogany colored body. The nose was really nutty with sweet caramel and yeast. The taste had a brandy-like sweetness to it. It was also nutty with toffee and caramel. Yeast came through after a few sips as well. Despite being relatively sweet, the body was only medium thickness and the high carbonation tickled the taste buds. It had a long and sweet finish with caramel and nuts. This beer was $2.29 per bottle, which broke down to $.19 per ounce. The beer was interesting and although it wasn’t the best of the style that I’ve had, it was definitely satisfying.

Untappd Rating: 3.5/5.0
