COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
Translation: The BRITT blonde beer (Melen in Breton) is non pasteurised. It’s brewed with barley malt and aroma hops. The buckwheat gives it a characteristic smoothness. Formerly 5%

Note: Do not confuse with the Britt Blonde Pils/Pur Malt at 4.5%.

Slightly astringent and chalky yeast bows to tempestuous dry hay...Sweet malt vows to elevate the powdery herbs to the creamy and ample mouthfeel...A refreshing and eclectic blonde, probably brewed with a few different grains than barley...

Rastacouere (6107) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 31, 2004
Bottle-conditioned Hazy golden hue with a superb white head, huge and rocky. Apparently very high carbonation. Aroma is more expressive than I anticipated, there’s a gentle spicy (oregano, sage) and lightly floral hoppiness that accompanies the grainy malt aspect. Lemony, toasty, herbal, it could be a pilsner mixed with a spicy bière de garde. Palate is lightly crisp with high carbonation, very herbal/grassy with a pilsner-like dry bitterness in the finish. Moderate traces of buttery diacetyl. It’s not too good, but surpasses expectations.

Hmm, intriguing beer. Cloudy blonde color. Lemon aroma. Flavors of lemon and bitter herbs which I was never able to identify.

RichardGretton (4175) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2004
Cloudy wheat biere like appearance with a frothy long life head. A fairly thick aroma with a slight Belgian blonde feel, and a flavour that is a mixture of a wheat beer and Belgian blonde biere. Overall a really good French biere.

Bov (9050) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - DEC 31, 2002
cloudy golden-blond colour, nice head, spicy (nutmeg?) and yeasty with notes of orange, smooth and tart, slightly acid, dry fruity finish - fresh and very pleasant

pilsnerrogge (2410) - Finspång, SWEDEN - OCT 15, 2002
Brown-ish yellow, hazy colour. Big, dense head. Fruity, somewhat yeasty apricot-aroma. Fruity, somewhat dry & yeasty flavour. Lively mouthfeel. Like Duvel without the alcohol-kick.

Pale ale. Citrusy aroma. Nice smooth taste, enough malty and sweet, lightly spicy, like a wheat ale.
