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

33 cL bottle, courtesy of Bov. Pours hazy dark orange with a small light off-white head. Aroma is floral and spiced of sage. Mild sweet flavoured with a distinct floral note. Mild yeasty and herbal too. Lasting spiced and herbal into the far finish. Interesting brew, rather unique.

Ungstrup (29223) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 5, 2004
The aroma is dominated by lemon by also containing spices. The color is an unclear orange and it has a fine though collapsing white head. The flavor is very spicy, but also sweet and with notes of wood, oranges, cloves, earth, and oregano. The end is quite bitter and dry - and it has a long aftertaste of all the spices. This is a really nice beer - thanks a lot to Alex (fiulijn) for trading me this one.

oh6gdx (20299) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 5, 2007
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!

madmitch76 (14744) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2009
23rd June 2008. Cloudy beer. A subtle fruitiness leads to a bitter herby finish that is also quite dry. A bit different and a tastebud livener but could not drink loads.

Blond, exaggerated carbonation. Spicy aroma: cardamom, coriander. Dry, quite astringent, with some sourness.

Good blond ale, misty, with living yeast in the bottle like all the other beers by BFM. A wonderful hop character (aroma and flavour) that overwelmes the malt taste. Long finish, bitter and aromatic.
