COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Après le succès de la Bracine de Printemps et son houblonnage puissant, nous souhaitions développer une nouvelle gamme de bières de spécialité, encore plus ancrée dans la tradition brassicole. En effet le houblon était très largement utilisé dans les bières de nos ancêtres essentiellement parce qu’il en assurait la conservation. anosteke est donc une bière résolument houblonnée lui conférant ainsi une amertume et une longueur en bouche incomparables. De plus notre anosteke est la première bière française dont les émissions de CO2 liées à sa fabrication et son transport sont compensées (cf www.actioncarbone.org). anosteke = traduction phonétique de « tot anoste keer », expression de chez nous signifiant « à la prochaine »

gegwilson (1157) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2014
Bottle from Calais Vins. Pours golden with a very thin layer of white froth. A nicely balanced beer with good bitterness, spice, citrus, caramel undertones and a hint of herbs.

airrick2003 (479) - Louisiana, USA - AUG 13, 2014
Appearance: this beer jumped out of the bottle as soon as I popped the top, pours with a very large off white head, the beer is a very hazy darker golden color with particles floating in it, head settles in average time Aroma: fruit, lemon, yeast, sour, tart, lime, smells very good Taste: has a sour tang to it, I’m getting lime again, hints of bitterness on the finish, white wine Palate: lively carbonation, even fizzy, has a weak sour aftertaste, light mouthfeel, dry Overall: not what I was expecting at all but this is pretty delicious, hides the abv very well, more of a sour beer, the lime is unique too

3fourths (8023) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 6, 2014
Bottle at ’t Kasteelhof in Cassel.
An intriguing hoppy blonde combining lemon-y Styrian Golding hops with sweet pastry bread malt. Juicy in the mouth, floral with citrus pith bitterness and subtle white pepper spiciness. Yeast is slightly pasty / starchy, lending a drying effect to the hoppy astringency which grows in the finish, with balance maintained well by succulent malt sugar. Tart and sweet and bitter, medium-bodied with creamy carbonation and long drying noble hop finish.

Alors là, non ! Un seul mot à dire : acidité. C’est triste à dire mais nous n’avons même pas pu la finir.

mansquito (3386) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 28, 2014
Whole Foods Bowery, NYC bottle ($4): Pours golden with a white head. Aroma is honey, earthy, fruity, and a bit herbal. Taste is much the same. The beer wasn’t too sweet, nor was it particularly bitter. It was just a nice fruity Belgian Blonde. This was sold as a bier de garde, but I did not get much of that style from here.

kwik-lime (1306) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2014
Bottle from La Route des Bieres in Aix. Sweet, some citrus, malty, with the alcohol certainly prevalent. Somewhat cloudy appearance. Good beer.

maekchu (2127) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUL 20, 2014
Bottle at GJBF Osaka 2014. Juicy, fruity nose, with citrus and some honey. Peachy initial flavor, honey come out, and alc. is quite apparent. The light bittering and alc. create a double punch in mid. A bit harsh, though, more than a blonde should be. Bitter, a bit heavy going, but fairly tasty.

KyotoLefty (6450) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 19, 2014
Bottle pour at GJBF Osaka 2014. Spicy, yeasty nose, citrus, grass. Spicy and sweet falvor, hoppy. Decently tasty and refreshing even.

NeoHippie2 (991) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 16, 2014
Hazy blonde pour with a white head. Aromas of yeast and spice. Flavor is sweet funk and malt. Solid brew.
