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

The aroma was spicy and peppery with a moderate herbal note. Sweet candy came to mind with a lightly citrus and grassy presence in the background. The aroma was fruity and complex. The golden beer was slightly hazy with a moussy tall white head which laced the chalice from top to bottom. The flavor was lightly spicy with pepper and cinnamon and an herbal quality. The spices were complex and well achieved. The flavor was lightly sweet at first on the palate but was tamed immediately by a spicy and grassy bittering which finished with a slight flourish of citrus. The body was medium with a sizable carbonation which led to a creamy texture on the palate. The peppery spice lasted well into the aftertaste and beyond. An immediately interesting and complex beer, well done! 11.15 fl ounce flip top bottle.

Explodes out of flip top bottle with five+ finger head, settles to a thin layer leaving some lace. Cloudy amber color, yeast left in bottle. Hoppy/spicy nose. Strong carbonation and medium bodied. Flavor is spicy and hoppy, malts are hidden, dry bitter aftertaste. $5.19 for a 330ml bottle from Tully’s Beer & Wine Wells, Me.

Sweet and savory so I’m expecting a nice balance and interesting flavor profile. I’m overwhelmed by the full and frothy mouthfeel. It leads me astray but I eventually find my way back to the flavor of the beer. I enjoyed this more with every sip. The sage really stands out and is an interesting component to the brew. Not one that I took to right away, but I’d definitely come back for more.

Bottled (Thanks Bov!). Honeyish golden colour with huge white foamy/bubbly head. Aroma is sweet and fruity with some honey and spices in it. Totally lovely aroma. Also some fresh forest in the aroma. Flavour is herbs, some spices and juniper-wood. Mediumbitterness along with the other flavours. The herbs stay long in the aftertaste. A very refreshing and nice brew!

Swing-top 33 cl bottle from Knightly Spirits in Orlando. Aroma is sweet and fruity with a potent spicy note that I rather enjoy. The body is a dull yellow/gold and holds a three fingers thick bubbly white head that is very lasting. Bitter and herbal at first with some dry sweetness and lots of floral spice and bitterness. Very crisp mouthfeel....nice drinking feel to it. Very nice brew.

Bottle. Poured hazy orange with a large frothy white head that was mostly lasting with fair lacing. Moderate spice and yeasty aroma. Light to medium body with a slick texture. Medium spicy sweet flavor with a medium spice finish of moderated duration. Refreshing beer.

This is a Belgian beer souped up with sage(say that quickly three times). Past expirey date from Oak Park in Joysey by almost a year. Champagne-like white yeast. The sage kicks in but was nicely aged, so it gives a positive taste impact.Smoothly done, good brewing.

Bottle - swing top: Pours a cloudy light golden with an initially huge fluffy white head which fades down to leave a nice lacing. Very interesting aroma. Belgian malt characteristics come through. Some bright orangey fruityness is also there, and tons of spicyness. Big oregano and dry sage touch. The flavor is interesting as well with early herbal notes and a crisp middle, where there are hints of green apples. The finish has a very natural spicy element of oregano and a big sage dryness. This is a very unique and intriguing brew with a great drinkability.Very appetizing, and I give it plenty of credit for it’s individuality.

I just adore sage in stuffing with turkey, in a beer? We shall see. Hazy golden body topped by a large pillowy white head. The aroma, yes that is indeed sage. Even leans a bit towards oregano. The flavor is very herbal both sage and hops. Lemony citrus complements the herbalness quite well. I kind of dig this one.
