L'Abbaye de Lille est une bière blonde de tradition. Brassée à partir de malts pâles et de houblons apportant une pine amertume et de précieux aromes. Il est conseillé de la stocker à l'abri de la lumière et de la déguster à une température de 8 à 10C

0.75 l bottle at Auchan. I was surprised about a beer like that in this hypermarket. The color was gold-orange, the nose was not so strong. In the taste dominates the sweety malt with some fruity things. And the beer was not expensive:)

Quack-Duck (8572) - Down South, GERMANY - JUL 28, 2007
bottle, bought at Auchan hypermarché. Clear pale yellow, persistent head. Well-balances hoppy and malty bière de garde. It appears quite spicy has hints of grain.

MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - JUN 7, 2007
750ml bottle, corked and caged: Poured deep golden yellow, almost orangeish, with a medium sized white head. Quite a bit of herbal hop aroma. Slight fruit notes with apple and grape. Flavor is solid: bitter hoppiness with a touch of fruit and grains. Clean. Goes down well.

Geiserich (3698) - Linz, AUSTRIA - MAR 26, 2007
Bottled: Quite sourly aroma, notes of champagne. Flavor is grainy and fruity, light winey. Interesting.

thewolf (11492) - Kolding, DENMARK - SEP 3, 2006
Pours yellow-orange with thin white head and lots of bubbles. Aroma is sweet with malty tones dominating, but lemon and some oranges spill through. Taste is complex, with fruit and malty tones combining. It even has a slight bitterness in its quite long aftertaste.

rickgordon (3846) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 26, 2006
[Bottled] Golden colour. Good head retention.Diacetyl nose, along with some pretty solid maltiness. Cellary in flavour, with light hop notes. Light finish, light body.

RichardGretton (4421) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2006
Bottle. Pale golden beer with a weak grassy aroma and a yeasty and weak flavour. Overall quite a poor beer for the style.

Papsoe (25073) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 24, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2009 (Bottle 75 cl) Slightly hazy pilsener golden with a fine, creamy, thick head leaving some laces. Incredibly smooth mouthfeel. Rather neutral, vaguely malty aroma. The body is dry with notes of malt and grass. Almost no bitterness. Extremely soft and accessible. More like a Belgian Blond ale. Will probably appeal to the adventurous pilsener drinker. 231205 and 220809

harrisoni (15047) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2005
75cl bottle from Auchan. Slightly hazy golden beer with thin white head. Thinnish yeast, but fresh aroma and a tad tinny in the mouth. Some citrus dryness on the end. Fine biere de garde and quite drinkable due to the creamyness in mouth
