Yellow, white head with lacing. Hoppy and peppery (pink peppercorn) aroma. Orange blossom, litchi. Surprising. Don’t know if blond ale is the best fit.

Bottle. Cloudy golden with white head. Aroma of dirt, yeast, lime and a hint of apple. Flavour is sweet malty with a yeasty, dirt bitterness to finish it off. Really nice and well balanced. I could drink loads of this. Slight resemblance with Orval in both aroma and flavour.

Pours gold into a tulip. Bright white head with medium retention recedes leaving spider lacing. Hay and summer fruit aromas. Soft with caramel and dough upfront turning to mild summer fruit before the lasting bitter earth finish. Overall, I enjoyed it more than the sum of its parts.

rikstar (815) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 24, 2014
Meerdere malen gedronken op zomervakantie in Frankrijk 2014. Helder goudgeel blondbiertje met een witte schuimkraag. Geur is hoppig met fruittonen lichi en citrus zijn hier inderdaad in terug te vinden. On de hoofdsmaak domineert de kruidnagel met een bitterzoet boeket. Afdronk is redelijk met een opbouwend bittertje. Een van de betere Franse bieren die ik heb geproefd.

Clear deep golden color, good frothy off-white head, good retention and lacing; aroma malty, fruity, bit yeasty, orange peel, lemon, citrus hops, soap; taste moderate sweet, light bitterness, citrus; medium body, oily to creamy texture, lively carbonation; smooth bittersweet finish, citrus lingers on. Lovely fresh beer.
