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.

Blond very clean body and simple head. Soft malts, grainy, herbal yeast, sugary but not necessarily sweet. Simplistic mouthfeel, foamy, light astringent. Not interesting at all but quality is okay. (33cl bottle from Christmas gift pack at Auchan Tours)
