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

Nuffield (3732) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 31, 2006
Really fresh aroma--ginger, lemongrass. Yellow body, fluffy, billowy, pillowed head. Safe is a nice component, lemony flavor base. Frothy, lively. Good stuff.

Bottle. A cloudy golden color with a big white head. A clean, light, musty and lemon flavor and aroma. This one rated #4 out of 8 in our annual Christmas gathering (12/22/06).

Cloudy blonde, big white head and lots of lacing, spicy aroma, flavor of oregano, bread, and citrus, pleasant beer, quite enjoyable.

Beerdedone (2794) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 1, 2006
Bottle sampled with Stegosaurus. Pours hazy golden with a large white head. Aroma of spices and slightly floral. The flavor is sweet, citrus, overly carbonated, and mildly bitter. Good beer.

Ughsmash (7224) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 6, 2006
33cl flip-top bottle. Opened with a very expressive "pop" and a fine mist... no doubt about holding its carbonation when it hit the glass either. Lightly-hazy medium golden pour with a billowing cap of creamy white head. The nose was hugely herbal with sage, mint, and others... opened up the sinuses a little bit like some Ricola. The high carbonation fills the mouth, but it lingers a bit too long on the palate before going down. Flavors of hefty sage, grassy hops, some metal, mint, white pepper, and lemongrass. Didn’t flow exceptionally well, but this was certainly intriguing and unique.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 6, 2006
Bottle sampled with Beerded_one. Pours hazy golden with a gigantic white head. Aroma of spices, yeast, and slightly floral. The flavor is sweet, bitter, spices are present, carbonated, citrusy, and slight fruit. Good body, good brew.

BCTC 06 Pours a hazy blonde color with a thick, frothy, white head. Very appealing aroma of hay, it’s almost like putting your nose in a haystack. Very good flavor of hay, it’s also fruity and dry in the finish. The body is light to medium with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Very impressive.

Bottle courtesy of Ughsmash. Hazy golden with huge head, tiny bubble carbonation. Decent lacing. Strong herbal presence in aroma, I guess it’s sage, not really familiar with it. Sour background character I can’t pinpoint. Flavor again has a huge herbal kick up front, tons of white pepper, skunky-grassy hop character towards the finish. Finishes sort of dry and woody, but metallic at the same time. IMO muddled altogether, tough beer to enjoy.

BBB63 (6301) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - SEP 22, 2006
Flip top bottle and served in my Unibroue tulip: Poured a hazy golden hue with a HUGE pillow of white foam which coated the glass almost completely. The aroma has notes of gingerbread, sage, dusty yeast esters and herbal qualities. The taste is very herbal and spiced which tends to overpower the malt and hops (if there is any to begin with). Lots of sage, white pepper, lemongrass, rose hips and some twangy apple notes supported by a yeasty and breadcrumbs undertone. The palate is over carbonated and prickly which covers the watery body leading to a dry and ashy finish. While not bad, I found it sort of underwhelming and not all that refreshing. Why is this not listed as a spiced/herb beer?, THX Admins, that was quick!
