COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A copper robe with a hint of gold. Mellow, with a refreshing bitterness, Belle Gueule Originale is bottom fermented and cold filtered… a lager of the highest distinction, brewed in the heart of Plateau Mont Royal.

Just so slightly above what a "good" amber lager tastes like. -this comprises all that need to be said about the beer;sometimes 75 characters is way too much!

mathieuc (1731) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 18, 2015
Pours a clear golden (almost copper) with a medium white head that gives out good lacing. Nose is of caramel, herbs and cereals. Taste is a little sweet, offers some malty flavors of cereals and a really light bitterness. Body is light to medium, carbonation high and prickly and mouthfeel oily. Overall an OK vienna, nothing to write home about though.

pumpkinhead2 (474) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 7, 2015
Bière jaune-orangée, ambre pâle, parfaitement limpide, bonne effervescence, et surmontée d’un col blanc cassé plutôt mince mais tout de même bien persistant. Arôme de malt pâle, céréale sucrée, sirop de maïs, léger sucre d’orge et/ou miel, avec un houblon floral et parfumé. Certains effluves de bonbons aux fruits ou de petits fruits très sucré semblent également s’échapper du breuvage. Nez intéressant, moyennement complexe, et moyennement intense. En bouche, pétillement moyen-faible sur la langue, onctuosité moyenne-faible au palais, breuvage plutôt mousseux. Au goût, malt pâle tendant vers la pâtisserie et sucres bien présent, sirop de maïs, sucre brut et sucre d’orge, avec un peu de petits fruits sucrés, bonbons aux fruits, voire réglisse rouge. Le houblon est floral et parfumé, et l’amertume est minimale. Complexité moyenne, intensité moyenne, goût moyen, à la fois intéressante et accessible, mieux que la plupart des lagers de brasserie commerciale mais sans devenir une bière de grande dégustation.

Tessic (917) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 28, 2014
This one poured a light amber colour with a white, frothy head. Scents include corn and light malt. First swig was watery with flavours of corn and malt. Slightly sweet with a finish of meh?

Minderbinder (2222) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 23, 2014
Bottle 341ml. Pours very clear golden with low off-white head. Minimal lacing. Aroma is of grain, sugar, slight caramel. Not much to say. Taste is of grain, sugar, slight bitterness, faint citrus, hints of caramel. Again, not much more to say. Palate: Medium body. Almost sticky mouthfeel. Medium carbonation. Overall: Grainy. Sugary. Poor balance. Leaves slight unpleasant aftertaste. Not too awfull, but far from a quality beer.

Bottle courtesy of Kinz at the 15th Richmond Ratebeer Gathering on 07/16/2011. Clear golden body with a small frothy white head. Sweet bready malt and light hop aroma. Dry postage stamp flavor with some pale malt. Medium body with moderate carbonation

Blonde sans goût ni arôme particulier. Se boit bien, mais sans plus. Ressemble aux bières commerciales style grand public.

tlind2 (1223) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 1, 2013
Bottle@Montreal. Golden color, white head. Malty flavor with some sweet notes. Fairly bitter finish. Medium body, medium carbonation. Not very appealing.

bulldogops (1111) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 24, 2013
Bottle out with dinner somewhere in Montreal. Nothing exciting, but a very nicely coloured red/amber lager. Deep shade. Foam is very thin, creamy, and light. Aroma is a little sweet and malty, tastes of caramel (very slight). Drinkable.

lesifflebiere (1383) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 10, 2013
Couleur or vieilli, ou cuivre ; plusieurs bulles mais peu de mousse. Un peu d’ocre aussi à la lumière. Au nez, c’est assez limité, avec des notes de houblon et de malts, sans plus. Modérément amère ; sucre fruité en fin de bouche. Une lager avec de l’audace, mais qui connaît quelques ratés, dont son amertume un peu étrange et son sucre fort. Demeure cependant une bonne alternative à la panoplie de bières commerciales fades.
