3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Number one (of three) in the French Jazz series - The Blonde
Serving glass: Poured from tap into small chalice.
Appearance: Pale cloudy yellow with thin white head.
Aroma: Strong yeast with nice bread and peppery notes.
Taste: Very bready and yeasty, somewhat sweet. Pepper and citrus come through toward the end.
Palate: Moderately high carbonation, medium sugary body, but slightly drying at the end.
Overall: The most thirst quenching of the three Jazz beers, but the least interesting.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Bells. Pours somewhat thin and a very pale yellow. Aroma is weak of bananas , some old clothes funk and some stuff. Tastes a little better than the smell. Very crisp and clear palate. Pretty good I guess. Best one in the series I suppose.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a light cloudy yellow into a pint glass. Aroma zesty as in pepper and coriander. Flavor was grassy, citrus orange and spicy. Had back to back with another Bell’s Biere de Garde and both were okay but just kind of plain. Has a light body with a dry finish. Not one of my favorites in this tap tackover but happy a tried it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Eccentric Cafe. Another one of Bells’ more average fair, with a good malty backing and some spicy grains. Pour was deep amber-mahoganny in color, with minimal head, and medium translucent body. The aroma was hazy, with some rich malts, caramel, bready cookie, and herbal spice. The flavor played off the aroma well, with some sweet dark fruits, caramel, cookie, and herbal hops. Overall, not terribly impressive, but still decently interesting.

On Tap at Trion in New Haven, Indiana. Poured a clear goldish yellow, with slight whitish head...aroma is slightly funky lemon/apple mixture. Nothing overwhelming in the taste, slight citrus, bready, dry and crisp. Clean finish. This one would go well with a variety of meals.
