COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Une blonde légère et cristalline, que nous avons fabriqué en l’honneur de tous les pionniers de Griffintown qui ont marqué son histoire.

Atheist_Peace (971) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - AUG 14, 2010
341ml bottle. Pours slightly cloudy bright yellow. with a white head and little lacing. Nose is very heavy on cereal grain that follows through on the palate in an unpleasant way. Not only bland, but semi-offensive to the senses.

Spab (2509) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 11, 2010
341 ml bottle from Premier Wine & Spirits (Halifax). Pours a slightly hazy gold with a decent-sized white head. Mild but pleasant floral and citrus aromas. Flavour is quite sweet with distinct floral character giving way to more caramelly taste with a light citrus presence throughout. Light body but not overly so. More character than a typical blonde ale.

bboeckl (142) - Grafton, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 10, 2010
I agree with jerc from Toronto. His notes are accurate. Beer was thicker than expected for a blond Canadian beer. White head. estery with floral notes as well as fruit... Orange blossom is present in finish. I brought this back from CANADA with a number of other beers. Pretty darn average!

Beer #5 drank at the Festival des bière du Monde Laval 2010, on August 1st, tap. Clear blonde, small head. Aroma of pale malt, notes of lemons. Light pale malt flavor, slightly sweet, slightly bitter aftertaste. Pleasanty easy to drink!

robinvboyer (3212) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 24, 2010
Sweet honey wet paper aroma and flavor. This mouthfeel, no hops to speak of. This is either a bad bottle or a bad beer.

Gethinbeer (2189) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAY 5, 2010
Very clear yellow colour with a big frothy white head. Honey, malt and citrus aroma. Nice malt flavour with honey and citrus hints. Nice and crisp beer, yet has a smooth under belly.

HogTownHarry (6127) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 20, 2009
Draught. Mondiale 2009 - day 3. Slightly hazy gold with an average frothy white head. Mild aroma of clover and dried flowers, a little sweet - the sweetness really emerges in the flavour. Light body, slightly pungent floral character, but it finishes fast and passively - nice enough, better than a lot of "golden ales" - this one has just enough Belgian character to rise it up a bit.

UM02 (310) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 3, 2009
Light blonde beer, mild and drinkable with a little bit of light hoppy bitterness. Not a classic by any means but a decent beer that one could drink for an extended session.

rederic (3048) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 16, 2009
341ml bottle, gloden blonde color, with a fluffy white head, with a wet grainy cereal, pale malt nose, with a hint of honey, malt liquor sweetness in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a crisp honeyed pale malt character, with some sweet grainy cereal accents, with a faint flowery hop citrusy note, leading towards a honeyish, malty, light lingering hop bitterness finish.
