Hazy orange color, decent creamy white head. Nose is kind of papery, oat-like. Flavor has light sweet edge in the beginning. beer is grassy and bitterish. Interesting French beer, not really typical biere de garde, more like a Belgian blonde.

Koelschtrinker (9998) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 1, 2011
Saurer, wenig herber Antrunk. Die vorhandenen Hefigkeit wird von der Säure überspielt, mit der Zeit wird das Bier muffiger und süßer. Dennoch unausgewogen durch die unkontrolliert wirkende Säure. Naja... 7/6/7/6/8/6

Lubiere (9765) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 20, 2005
Hazy blonde with a thick collapsing white head. Sweet light malt with a light orangey note. In mouth, good bready malt with a touch of pleasant cirus acidity and fruitiness and nice crisp hops in finish. Medium bodied. Bought in May 2004. Man, I’m surprised its still good!

Bov (9270) - 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

FatPhil (9152) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 7, 2008
330ml bottle (Tuulensuu, Tampere, French days 2008) shared by Tbone_ - thanks! Rich orange, cloudy, small light head. Dry dusty hoppy aroma, but not overpowering at all. Slightly papery yeasty taste. Well balanced, but with nothing really to grab onto.

leaparsons (7965) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2004
Haz orange with a white head that dissapates quickly. Aromas are light mandarin and spices. Flavours are mellow and wheaty with citrus tang and yeast. Has a nice, gentle, fruity finish - especially apricot and pear. Pretty good.

bottle from savuer-biere. Brewed with buckwheat. Slightly hazy golden yellow, large white head. Spicy and nice perfumy hop aroma. Medium-bodied, grainy malt flavours, perfumy floral hop notes with a resiny-fruity touch.

MartinT (7746) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 8, 2004
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...
