2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Je suis à mon épicerie où il n’y a pratiquement rien au niveau "bière", et je tombe sur quelques Mons... Ok, ça fait longtemps que j’en ai pas bue, alors je me laisse tenter. J’ouvre une bouteille de leur Blonde en premier. Hiiissshhhh, pas terrible ce truc. Ça goûte la viande fûmée. Il y a clairement des notes de fumée et j’avoue que ça se marie assez mal avec une telle bière autrement assez claire. L’alcool est bien caché, mais ce sera un des seuls points positifs que je vais trouver. En me forçant, je dirai aussi que le corps est correct. Très certainement ma dernière bouteille à vie de cette bière. Je suis tombé sur une mauvaise bouteille?

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudy golden color with very powerful glass clinging activity. Extra frothy beige 4 finger island head, lasting around 20 minutes, with strong legs.
Aromas of fresh flowers, lemon, faint metal, and sweet malts. Flavors of citrus lemon and orange peels, coriander, sweet grains, caramel, faint yeast, floral and herbal spices. Strong sweetness with a faint dash of citrus sharpness. Bready with noble spice grassiness.
Smooth full body with champagne like carbonation. Light to medium finish of moderate length, ending with a fruity citrus feel, a little hoppy grassiness, and a faint vinous yeasty feel.
Overall excellent quality craft. Delicious balanced flavors with a strong fresh feel. Great body and well intensified. Quite accessible with a hidden alcohol feel.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a bit hazy golden color with a medium white head. Nose of banana, coriander, classic Belgian yeast, Honey, sweet bready buiscuity malts. There’s a nice carbonation there. Medium body. Feels very crisp on the mouthfeel for the style and it’s very nice. Alcool creeps up just a little bit near the end. Excellent balanced beer. I really liked.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Smells very sweet. Pours with so much head, it was unbelievable. Taste is almost to sweet (sugary). Decent amount of carbonation. Never have I seen so much sediment (yeast) in a beer. Overall I was glad to try it, but will not purchase again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: slightly hazy pale gold with two fingers of rocky off-white head, excellent retention and chunky lacing. (5/5) Aroma: banana, apple and pear, yeast, bubblegum. (7/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, mild bitter, light tart. (7/10) Light body, lively carbonation, off-dry slightly sticky and mildly warming finish. (3/5)
Reasonably authentic Belgian-syle ale, with lots of yeast-derived character. The apple note is almost but not quite brown apple, and the flavours linger in a not entirely desirable fashion, but overall it’s a fairly decent example of the style. (14/20)

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml bottle from the BeerStore. 7 % Alc./Vol. Pours an opaque deep gold colour with 2 finger of lasting white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast and some ripe banana and a hint of grapefruit. Taste matches the aroma. It has moderate strength but retains some Belgian complexity. it’s pretty much a watered down version of Duvel. This could be a perfect summer beer for the Belgian beer lovers.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Midway between good and bad. Body is golden yellow with off white puffy head. Hardly any notable aroma, perhaps light straw? Taste is sweet... overly sweet which I find makes the body syrupy. There is a carbonated kick to it, light alcoholic hints. Some fruity elements; I find light banana.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden coloured body with a nice, four centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of honey, yeast, bananas, bubble gum and a touch of coriander seed. Medium-bodied; Very noticeable honey and yeast flavours up front with a big effervescence and a strong grassy and malt quality from the wheat, right behind. Aftertaste shows a bit of sweetness from the honey, but this is a large wheat and yeast flavoured beer. Overall, a nice beer with a good yeast quality and complexity, yet still available at a convenience store! I sampled this caged and corked 75 cL bottle purchased from a Couche Tard in Montreal, Quebec, Canada for CA$7,09 sampled in my hotel room a few minutes later on 13-February-2016 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
