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

Butelka 0.33L.
Wygląd: Słomkowe, klarowne, przygaszone. Piana biała, obfita, zwłaszcza drobnopęcherzykowa, trwała i lekko znaczy szkło.
Aromat: Lekko dzikie, kwaśne, końska derka. Lekko fenolowe, przyprawowe, pieprzne i ziemiste. W tle kwaśne wiśnie cytryna. Pachnie przyjemnie choć bardziej jak lambic owocowy albo innych kwach a nie blond ale.
Odczucie: Wytrawne, kremowe, średnie+ wysycenie.
Smak: Lekko kwaśne, cytrusowe, skórka i albedo cytryny. Minimalnie dzikie, posmak ziołowo, ziemisty ze średnią goryczką jak w albedo cytrusów.
Całość: Świetne, lekkie, orzeźwiające. Zupełnie nie tego się spodziewałem po opisie. Ani to blond ani tam szałwii nie czuję. Dzikie, cytrusowe, kwaśne. Bardzo fajne zaskoczenie.

Bottle from Drinks of the World, Geneva. Pours a hazy blond co,our with a white head. Hay and citrus aroma. The taste is more of the same. Banana and herb too. Nice strong flavours. Not amazing but perfectly pleasant.

Helles ist sehr übles orange. Ein kurzer kräftiger weißer Schaum. Das Aroma ist sehr hefig etwas Fruchtnoten und Gewürze zum Beispiel Salbei. Im Antrunk bitter und sauer zugleich. Gut malzunteretützt ganz leichte Süße ziemlich viel Kohlensäure Abgang Trocken und lang anhaltend. Nicht mein liebstes BFM

SaintBonchien (9) - Sonceboz, SWITZERLAND - FEB 1, 2015 does not count
Blonde orangée, assez opaque et mousse bien persistante, superbe arôme doux, très végétal et épicé, saveur assez forte, doux au début et amer à la fin, on sent la pointe de sauge et de gingembre, Corps assez plein, pas trop pétillante, sensation d’astringence avec un bon équilibre avec la fraîcheur. la finale est persistante et moyennement intense, amère. Remarquable bière, fraîche, j’aime beaucoup !

King_Alex_II (338) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 23, 2015
Cloudy yellow-orange color with reasonable white foam. The smell reminds of a witbeer with spices. The taste is fresh, well carbonated and spicey. Basil aromas and some citrus/grapefruit notes can be found. The beer is not exceptional but well crafted.

Orangée très voilée. Mousse blanche bien persistante, beaux dépôts. Direct très épicé, sauge-coriandre. Houblonnage bien présent, agrumes et gigembre assez puissant. En bouche similaire avec une forte présence épicée, petite amertume assez agréable. Petite acidité. Carbonatation moyenne.

It pours a hazy orange yellow with a 1 finger head of foam and does well with the lacing. It smells spicy and earthy which likely comes from the sage used. Plenty of coriander in there as well. Big coriander and bigger sage with a dash of pepper. No sweetness here, mild hint of tartness, good level of unusual bitterness. Medium body and carbonation. Enjoyable for the most part.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2014 330ml bottle poured in a chalice. Delicious BFM specimen. A: Looks like a witbier, yellow to white color with a very cloudy body. Pours a medium fluffy head which dissipates leaving no lacings S: Very good. Spicy as it should. Citrus lemon. Malts, biscuits and yeasts. A bit flowery T: Really good stuff. Light sourness. discreet pepper and coriander. A bit of vanilla (?). Light bitterness. M: Light after all. Smooth. Medium to low carbonation D: Good [ BA Review @ 10/6/2010 ]

Bright cloudy gold with small white head. Fragrant yeasty clove banana aroma. Taste - again with the banana and clove...says that sage is an ingredient and I get that on the end. Also notes of honey, wheat and again with the yeast. A spicy flavorful malt forward ale. I liked it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
