COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Très régional, son nom rappelle la coutume du « vivat flamand » où l’on honore l’hôte ou les mariés à la fin d’un banquet en reprenant un air connu de tous les Ch’timis.

A golden blond Ale brewed from a unique fermentation process in open tanks, using century old technics. Skimmed manually, Vivat Blond is a pure malt “Bière de Garde” which recalls the natural flavours of beer. Its freshness and its slight bitterness at the finish even charm beer novices.

33cl bottle from Alko Arkadia. Pours hazy golden, thin, but lasting white head, bubbly. Orange in aroma as I poured into glass. Also dusty, mushroomy notes. Quite pleasant. Light fruity flavor with yeast, spicyness, orange and a lingering fruity light bitter finish . Simple and enjoyable, clean and round mouthfeel. Feels lighter than 6,5% ABV
