Domaine DuPage

Being a resident of DuPage County, I would be remiss if I were not to partake of a beverage which is named after the region of my residence, so it was with great anticipation that I first sampled Domaine DuPage French Style Country Ale (Biere de Garde) from Two Brothers Brewing Company in Warrenville, IL.  This 5.9% ABV ale is Orange/amber in color with pinkish highlights, and its lacy head is as white as a snow drift.  The malty bouquet foreshadows the sweetness that greets the tongue, but the slight dryness noticed upon the first swallow signals the presence of some moderate hops.  It is a little syrupy perhaps, but very drinkable and worth an 84/100 on the beerbliographer scale.
