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.

Minderbinder (1592) - 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.

bulldogops (1032) - 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 (1037) - Montréal, 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.

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 11, 2013
Bouteille 341ml. de couleur dorée et claire. Nez de grains de malt sucrés avec des notes de houblon herbeux et de pain. Mince-moyenne en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture aux notes huileuses. Goût de grains de malt sucrés lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute des notes de pain et quelques traces de caramel très doux puis en finale l’on retrouve des notes amères de houblon herbeux (gazon mouillé). Post-goût court, très légèrement amer de houblon herbeux.

Bouteille de 341ml, robe blonde claire, arôme florale, goût d’herbes et de céréale.

dandeman (452) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 27, 2012
Aroma: Country and malty aromas like hay are sticking out just a bit. Typical lager nose fighting hard to stick out but not succeeding a lot. Appearance: Nice gold and clear, with small head disappearing kind of rapidly. Not a lot of lacing. Taste: Typical lager taste with malty accents like roasted bread, hay and biscuit, followed by a slight and smooth bitterness. Texture is slightly oily, body medium with quite sparkling finish. A very acceptable lager with no major flaws.

AlainG (1044) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 21, 2012
Un liquide blond et limpide, dénudé de mousse, ou du moins, semble s’évaporer instantanément. Les odeurs sont de malt et de caramel. Au goût c’est aussi malté avec des pointes épicées et fruitées, alors qu’une amertume, très douce est ressentie. L’effervescence me fait l’effet d’une boisson gazeuse. Dire qu’il y a longtemps, j’appréciais beaucoup cette bière, sauf qu’aujourd’hui, à l’analyser, je la trouve plutôt ordinaire. (404-191012)
