imdownthepub (10134) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2009
Bottled, 650ml. Gold with white head. A lovely surprise this, a fully flavoured french Blonde beer, fruity with hints of fortified wine, some honeyed sweetness, spicy and tangy. Tasty and lasting, pretty decent.

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - OCT 9, 2008
Trionfo di prugne nell’aroma e nel sapore, questa birra di Natale di Castelain volevo conservarla per il 25 dicembre, ma essendo arrivato a 599 volevo fare 600 senza assaggiare niente di troppo pretenzioso o troppo grande; 65cl di Ch’Ti mi sembrano l’ideale. Solito fruttivendolo di via Maddalena. Questa è la tipica birra che mi stufa un poco, con le sue note estremamente dolci che non vengono smorzate dal finale un po’ secco tipico delle bières de garde (e a cui mi sto abituando siccome ne sto bevendo tantissime).

sunevdj (3152) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - JAN 6, 2007
On tap. Pours a clear golden with a white head and some lacings. Smells a bit of honey. Sweet and malty with strong honey flavors. Slightly lagerish. Light bodied and slightly waterish. The finish isa boring lagerfinish: bitter with a hint of sourness and some gunpowder hops.

bluevegie (3052) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 20, 2006
Clear light golden body with an average white head. Fruity aroma with a bit of spices mixed in. Very pleasant sweet taste, not full on in flavour but I enjoyed this better than the Brune.

harrisoni (13577) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2006
65cl bottle from Auchan, Calais. Hey my 100th different French beer and there was me thinking it was all Kronenbourg and Export 33. Clear gold colour with thick white head. Spicey lemon aroma. Very drinkable blond beer in the mouth, bit of spice, oranges too. Bit soapy on aroma and in mouth. Very soft mouthfeel. Finish has some interesting orange fruit notes. Yes, for my 100 not a bad biere de garde. Spice and orange fruit over a soft lager style body.

Ungstrup (29217) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 23, 2005
A hazy orange beer with a nice white head. The aroma is sweet yeasty, and spicy with coriander standing out. The the flavor is just as the aroma and with a dry end.
