La Belle Gueule Houblon est une lager filtrée houblonnée à cru. Au nez, vous serez plongés dans un bouquet floral complexe dû au mélange de cinq houblons américains et nobles. En bouche, quelle belle amertume! The Belle Gueule Houblon is a flitered dry-hopped lager. The nos will hit you with its intriguing floral blend of five American and Noble hops. And the mouthfeel, such lovely bitterness!

jgb9348 (5728) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - SEP 18, 2016
Deep copper and light amber coloured body with a nice three centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of fresh hops, some light caramel, a bit of toffee and nuts along with a big earthy maltiness. Medium-bodied; Strong hop flavour that isn’t really fresh, but shows some English and German hoppy elements coupled with a larger malt backbone, a hint of alcohol and a definite earthiness. Aftertaste shows some hoppy bitterness, a bit of grass and herbs and a more pungent malt finish. Overall, a relatively decent beer with some assertive hoppy flavours, but the malt is larger in this one and shows a bit of metallic and earthy notes near the end, but all-in-all, a beer worth trying if you can find it and want the convenience of a can! I sampled this 473 mL can purchased from the IGA Grocery Store at Rue Berri (Berri-UQAM Station) in Montreal, Quebec, Canada on 17-September-2016 for CA$2,49 sampled a few minutes later in the park close-by in Montreal on 17-September-2016.

Spab (3438) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 5, 2016
473 ml can from Trois Rivieres IGA. Pours a clear orange colour with moderate-sized off-white head that leaves decent lace. Aroma is cereals, caramel and leafy citric hops with a bit of a spicy note. Flavour is caramel and grainy maltiness with a rather green citrusy and floral hoppiness. Medium body. Solid.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4663) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 5, 2016
First beer back home: Belle Gueule Houblon 6.2% A deep orange color with a thick beige head that vanishes fast. Floral and piney hops with a sweet maltiness. The taste is very bitter pine, sweet malts and ash. A hoppy lager made with five hops though I'd say they'd have done better keeping it simple. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hellonearth (124) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 8, 2016
UPDATED: APR 8, 2016 Robe orangée avec fin col mousseux.Arômes frais et légers de houblons. Goût léger de pain céréalier. Amertume typique de pamplemousse avec un soupçon de poivre. C’est une IPA pas trop hard. Plutôt du côté frais, avec un p’tit feeling métallique pas trop agréable. Corps un peu rond assez plaisant. Coolos.

2015-06-12. Crisp dark yellow body with a small frothy off white head. Aroma is interesting yet odd, muddled fruity leafy hops. Flavour has some pleasant fruity citrusy hop touches, green hop notes. A touch muddled throughout, it’s not bad but every second sip seems harsh somehow. Average bodied palate, moderate carbonation. 3+ Can from IGA, Montreal.
