A light spicy pils aroma. First sign of hops from these guys. A light floral hop that makes it pretty tasty. Very smooth.

DruncanVeasey (7191) - NUNEATON, Top 18, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2007
This is much more like it. Sweet, slightly woody, pineapple-fruity nose. There’s some hops there, too.Completely unlike any ’Biere de Garde’ I’ve tasted to date. Bright hazy yellow pour with a frothy-headed spritziness. Appetisingly spicy, with a sprinkle of something I can’t quite place. But it’s distinctively Belgian and probably coriander- used sparingly. Exceptionally lacy and creamily full-bodied for the style and ABV. The same subtly smoky afters as the Gwiniz Du. A hell of a lot going on for a 5 percenter. An attractively bitter dryness in the finish. A quenchingly spicy, well-balanced Blonde easily surpassing some of its more esteemed French and Flemish cousins.

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

SilkTork (5218) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 24, 2006
Bottle from Leclerk, Valreas. A pale ale with the clean lines of a lager - beefed up with the yeast in the bottle. This Blonde or Biere de Garde comes over as a flavoursome lager of considerable character and drinkability. Very pleasant. Lager hops lingering in the finish. Malt is clean and very largerish, though with hints of fruit, corriander and funegreek. Most of the flavour and character comes from the hop and the yeast. Low, natural and soft carbonation. A very enjoyable beer.

Bottled. Cloudy golden coloured, thin lacing. Hoppy aroma. Pretty nice Biere de Garde style beer. Thanks to my friend (Roel) for bringing it from France.

Bière blonde artisanale de caractère que je connais depuis plusieurs années. Elle semble avoir un peu évolué en goût, mais reste une bonne bière. Du sarrasin en farine est ajouté à la recette. Couleur abricot clair, doré mat. Clarté trouble par la lie. Bulles par petites vagues, mais moins nombreuses qu’auparavant. Mousse haute bien blanche, crémeuse. Arômes des blés mûrs sous le soleil d’été. 1ère bouche liquide à soyeuse, avec de très belles céréales, de la levure et du houblon amer fin. Petite pointe fine de girofle. 2ème bouche d’une amertume ferme et fine à la fois. 3ème bouche avec les bois du tonneau, et une pointe de fer derrière. Bouche à la fois pleine et amère. Longueur très bien (elle était superbe avant). Levure douce et amère, lisse, très classe. Une très belle veine. Alcool correct. Finale un peu moins bien qu’auparavant. Conclusion : on a connu cette bière dans des conditions nettement supérieures, qui frisait les grandes cotations. Elle est maintenant en dessous, comme beaucoup de bière de cette brasserie, à qui l’expérience ne sert pas à s’améliorer !!!

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.
