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%.

RichardGretton (4176) - 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.

reebtogi (3828) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 16, 2012
330ml bottle at 5%ABV pours a pale golden color with a 2 finger white head that retains well and leaves a thin lacing on the glass. Aroma is cereal grains and grassy hops. Taste is grainy with a grassy hop bitterness. Flavors are more complex than I can describe and this is a much better brew than I expected. Well done.

Bottle 33cl, a clear yellow beer with low head. Nose is on dry malt and bottom yeast like. Aroma is on dry malt, peppery hops and vegetable notes, body is malty and dusty hops, near to german Helles style.

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

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 20, 2008
Dark yellow colored, strongly cloudy appearance. Strongly lemony and yeasty aroma with some orange and witbier styled spices, rich aroma indeed. Medium bodied. Flavor is also rich with more hops than in aroma, still this orange and lemon come up finely hee. Fruits with convenient yeasty-spiciness can be found also. Aftertaste turns to bitter with hops, some blood-orange notes last long.

BlackHaddock (3183) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2012
2nd Nov 2010: Brown 33cl bottle, poured into a ’Hoegaarden Grand Cru’ stemmed tulip. This beer was formally 5%ABV, mine was 6%ABV. A slight haze in the body gives it a dark golden hue, on top a white bubbley head. Citrus fruits dominate the nose, really sour aroma, more than a hoppy citrus smell, this is lemon, lime and grapefruit all blended together. The taste is also citrusy, leaning towards a vinegarous feel. It was at this point I noticed it’s best before date was 27 Aug 2010, which means it was reviewed over two months after that. Hope the beer wasn’t on the turn as I wrote the review. Also ’miffed’ I paid full price for it (yesterday). Different and an OK beer, France has some good stuff, I’ll carry on trying to find the best ones and review them on here!

erickok (3161) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JUN 12, 2011
Hazy light orange, medium white head. Feta cheese, citrus fruit, wheat and a metalic dryness. Light body wi a citrussy sweetness and some banana. Very light spices in the aftertaste. Reminds me of the bite of a mild hefeweizen. Decent and (too?) accessible. (33cl bottle)

Eructoblaster (2851) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 11, 2006
Bottle. Blond hazy body with yeasty chunks and a diminishing white foamy head. Fresh hoppy/herbal aroma with light citrusy and yeasty notes. Refreshing and well balanced malty/hoppy taste with yeasty and fruity hints. Leaves a decent bittersweet aftertaste. Enjoyable beer.
