1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
I saw this beer before me that shimmered like a golden goblet full of iridescent dreams, and it smelt of all the fruits of the garden. It smelt of ripe, juicy passionfruit, of lemons and fragrant jasmine blossoms. It by smell alone was worthy of deities, but there being none I was left to sup alone. And I supped and it was good. It tasted fresh and creamy, like sherbet spiced with coriander, cardamon and the zest of a dozen limes. My thirst was slaked by this holy beer, but my appetite was not and I longed for more...
That was not Biere Larue. Biere Larue was a rather ordinary East Asian lager that could have been any of the others I tried, just in different packaging.

Cans and bottles (4,2%) in Hoi An, Vietnam. Light golden with a small white head. Light malty aroma with hints of fruits. Very light and slightly sour. Sometimes a bit metallic taste. Drinkable in the heat when the beer is cold, but not a beer to bring home. The Export is slightly better. (2012-05-06)

33cl can. Thanks Tderoeck for the share.
Dorée, paille, col blanc.
Typique avec ce qu’il faut de houblon et malt, le tout gardé au strict minimum. Le palais est très pétillant sur ce profile très métallique, sec de houblon, et de malt pâle, reste très moyenne. Si ce n’est pour la cannette, le reste s’oublie très vite.

14/IV/2012 - 33cl can @ home - BB: 18/10/12 (2012-379) Thanks to Thomas and Annelies for the can!
Clear pale yellow beer, small white aery head, unstable, little adhesive. Aroma: sweet grains and corn, hay, dusty. MF: low carbon, light body, watery texture. Taste: some citrus, grains, little bitter. Aftertaste: some chemical bitterness, bit grassy, hints of drowned tiger. Boring, but yet another tick!

Very light one, little alcohol but not that tasteless. Not great but, acceptable.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pale golden coloured body with almost no haze at all and a very thin white head. Aroma of funk and some oldish malt with nothing else. Light-bodied; Sharp metal flavour with malt and vegetables behind with a pungent alcohol vibe as well, even with the low ABV. Aftertaste slightly less potent with more of the freshness coming out and some subtle hop notes even coming into play. Overall, a drinkable beer, but don’t expect much from this one. I sampled this 33 cL can purchased in a small shop in Saigon, Vietnam on 30-December-2009.
