COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
La Flava est une bière blonde, dont l’originalité réside dans l’utilisation de feuilles de Mélisse en remplacement d’une certaine partie du houblon. Il en résulte un arôme unique, légèrement citronné, à l’amertume fine qui contrebalance agréablement le corps rond et malté de cette bière.

Ungstrup (29164) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 6, 2009
Bottled. An unclear golden beer with a lazing off-white head. The aroma has notes of vitamin C, malt, spices, and straw. The flavor is very sweet with strong notes of peaches as well as caramel and malt, leading to a very lightly finish. Thanks yespr for sharing. Thanks yespr for sharing.

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 23, 2006
(Bottle 33 cl) Unclear amber with a rather tall, off-white head boosted by a completely extreme carbonation. Pours with big chunks of yeast already from the start. Fresh aroma with the yeast shining through. Medium body, quite malty with notes of citrus and coriander albeit the label doesn’t mention such spices. But presumably part of the hops are substituted by lemon balm. In a blind tasting I would’ve been a 100% certain, that this was Belgian. Nice all right, but the heavy carbonation makes it hard to drink. Heaviily sedimented. 230106

omhper (19225) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 13, 2006
[Bottled, thanks Bov!] Cloudy amber. Aroma of toffee and citrus. Very spritzy and livelyMild, yet discretely flavourful. Medium bodied, notes of estery bubblegum . Excessive carbonation makes it champagnelike.

fiulijn (14340) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 7, 2008
Cloudy blond color, with a few floating particles. Very light malt aroma. There is too much carbonation, that along with a light astringent sourness, lets me think of a starting infection (LG035).

Bov (9320) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - NOV 17, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 28, 2009 re-rated 9-2009 - pours a fully cloudy red-orange colour with no head retention; citrusy nose with notes of pumpkin; fizzy and quite sweet, moderate malt body and with no bitterness; lot of residual sugars in an effervescent and vegetable-like finish

11-2005; brewed using lemon balm for a part of hops - pours a cloudy orange colour under a very fizzy rocky white head; beautiful lace; citrusy, honeyish nose with notes of fir needle; very creamy in the mouth; high carbonation, the malt body is medium at best; it is rather sweet but a touch of tart acidity gives it balance and dynamic; the finish is long, fruity and flowery but with something undefined leaving in the mouth and making it not fully pleasant (5/7/7/3/15)

sebletitje (6594) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUN 8, 2010
33cl bottle from Au Grain d’Orge, Switzerland. Lot# LG071 pours cloudy golden, thin fizzy, quickly disappearing head, almost effervescent. aroma, yeasty, brown sugar and hints of hops, the addition of mélisse plant adds a nice lemongrass nose. flavors, sweet and sugary, hints of hops that is subdued and flavor enhanced by the mélisse plant adding a nice extra citrus/lemon mouthfeel. Light note of bready malts to be noted. The beer ends a little one dimensional and although I enjoy the brewery’s use of special plants, many of my last few bottles tend to keep an overly yeasty palate to the point of being a little hard to finish. Good beer, but the yeast becomes way to present ampering most of the experience.

Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - OCT 6, 2009
Pale murky coloured. Unclean aroma of yeast. Very yeasty and sweet and unclean. Unpleasant.
