COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
La Meule, bière blonde 6% vol. est une blonde non conventionnelle au bouquet intense marqué par des notes de houblons puissants (agrumes, foin séché, gingembre) et souligné d’une pointe de sauge. En bouche son carbonique fin fait place à une amertume franche conférant de la longueur à cette bière

Tap at Marciero. Lovely orange-golden color, cloudy, with lace. Big sage nose, golden malts, a bit too much sage for me, but it works in the flavor. Malty and sweet, sage, orange rich malts. dry finish. Interesting use of the spice and pretty enjoyable.

Beese (1923) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2014
Bottle brought back from Switzerland by my incredibly kind girlfriend. Poured a golden colour, with a slight haze and a very dense white head. Wonderful aroma; massive tropical fruit, peaches and pastry. Citrus hop flavours, bitter grains and brown sugar. Finish was grapefruit, dry hop resin and unripe fruit.

erickok (3699) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - APR 22, 2014
Yellow misty body with stable head. Aromas of wheat, lemon, light spices, bread and some herbal hops. Well developed yeast profile. Not overly complex in taste, as opposed to the nice aroma mix, with only the dry ending pleasing me more than average. Well brewed and nice aromatic (yet accessible) mix, but the taste is not much more than a well hopped bitterness and wheat palate. (33cl bottle gifted by the Au Bon Coin owner, many thanks!)

harrisoni (13848) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2014
Bottle from AndrewC, thanks my friend. Hazy pale gold lasting big white head. Some herby aroma. It’s like a Belgian wit beer with some sage and some dryness on the finish. It’s got a little perfumed soap. I like the dryness on the finish. It’s a decent Belgian wit with some sage. OK.

C’est bon mais ça ressemble beaucoup à la Gueuze Cantillon et elle est tellement en dessous de cette dernière que elle devient très trop moyenne
