Beardbeerman (251) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 8, 2015
Pours a clear straw topped by a finger or so of off-white roughly structured head showing moderate retention and lacing features. The nose is both spicy and malty with a certain grassy hoppy element in the back. The taste is again a nice combination of bready malts and doughy/spicy yeasts with a fairly round body. The alcohol is not extensively perceptible and doesn’t give it that fruity aspect that, in my opinion, would destroy the brew’s flavours pattern. The hops come through a little at the end as the brew breaks down slowly. Cheers!

Nalewane z ma?ej p?katej butelki mocno nagazowane, tworzy spor? pian?. Barwa jasna, aromat zbo?owy. W smaku niez?e, podchodz?ce pod belgijskie jednak moim zdaniem wyra?nie zbo?owe. Goryczka niewielka, b?belki CO2 wyra?nie drapi?, alkohol równie? wyra?nie wyczuwalny.

Arek (533) - Zielona Góra & Wrocław, POLAND - DEC 19, 2014
Bottle 0,33 l, Carrefour, Zielona Góra, Poland. Złote, mocno nasycone piwo o niezbyt obfitej pianie i słodkawym, ziemistym, lekko owocowym aromacie. W smaku gęste, trochę ziemiste, lekko biszkoptowe z wytrawnym finiszem.

eduardovl (1064) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
Poured in a Trappist chalice. This is a crystal yellow beer. Smells fairly good. Reminds a good Belgian blond (close to Leffe, perhaps...). Not bad for a French beer. Despite of the 6.4%, you do not feel much alcohol, which helps the drinkability. It should be a good option for a sunny day, followed by a barbecue and listening to Gainsbourg... :) [ BA Review @ 11/11/2009 ]

Bottle @ weekly tasting shared with Dutchdrebus. Clear golden color, full sized white head that lasts for quite a while. Aroma is lightly malts, lightly a touch of yeast, lightly a touch of bitter. Taste lightly malts, lightly a touch of bitter, a hint of grains, slightly sweetish. Average body and carbonation. Ok beer. Typical biere de garde.
