malty and fruity aroma with shades of herbs, spices and yeast... the taste is malty with notes of garden fruits and, a little bit, caramel and spices... smooth hoppy bitterness... dry and spicy aftertaste...

Gyllengul med vitt skum. Söt doft med inslag av bröd och maltighet. I smaken tillkommer lite örtighet och en gräsig beska.

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... :)

Can (I think it was) shared in the car while hustling through Belgium back in March 2013. Pours clear yellow with a fine, white foam head. Big cereal and bread aroma with hints of straw. Medium sweet flavor with hefty doughy bread, some white sugar. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Sweet finish with notes of cereal, doughy biscuits, light alcohol, more white sugar. Simple but decent. A pretty classic biere de garde.
