Amber hazy ale with a thin white head. Sweet vanilla in aroma, with maderized malt, vinous notes. Sweet malt in mouth, oxidized. Light orange notes. Oily nouthfeel. Bottle shared with Gonzobeer. Merci Hans.

bluevegie (3063) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 1, 2006
Pale golden body with a medium size, almost lasting white head. Yeasty aroma with apples. Medium bodied, simple, light caramel and spice, very easy drinking, but can’t see that it is meant for "keeping" too long as it hasn’t got too much in it for my liking. An improvement on the brune though.

KnutAlbert (6299) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 13, 2005
Nice taste of green, sour apples but with a sweeter finish, a totally different experience compared to Beligan blondes. If the French can come up with more like this, I would be very happy.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - NOV 5, 2005
Best before or bottled on(?) 06/04/05. Amber. Small, whispering, cream colored head dissipates quickly. Roasty malt, caramel, toffee, sugar, yeast-aroma. Creamy malt up front with bittering hops picking up in the end. Roasty caramel/toffee flavors, some must, some yeast and clove, also. Yeasty, chewy aftertaste. Creamy and tingly full/medium body. Not excellent, but 3.1 seems low.

anders37 (18184) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 20, 2005
Golden in colour. White head, leaving a lace on the glass. A perfumed aroma. Also grassy aroma. Sweet flavor but also spicy flavour. A little think mouthfeel and a grassy and hoppy aftertaste.

75cl bottle from Auchan. Golden beer with thick white lasting head. Nicely perfumed aroma. Good hops come through in mouth and on to finish. Some candy sugar. Refreshing with good hoppy finish. Soft in mouth. Nice biere de garde

turbothy (1130) - Bonn, GERMANY - OCT 16, 2005
A quite weak Biere de Garde, almost pilsener-like. Light golden colour with small head. Grassy aroma, somewhat sour and uninteresting flavour.
