On tap at la gaiete in lille. Flavor is outstandingly well balanced for a bdg. Roasted and fruity notes come through with expected flavor of the type. Very solid beer.

0.25 bottle. Pours nice and lasting white head. Aroma sweet, some fruits and bread, not impressive at all. Tastes watery in spite of 7.2 abv. Very dominating metallic taste, and some malty sweetness. Bitterness is low, mainly from alcohol. Not a good one. On a blind test I would say it is a strong lager.

0.75 bottle. Fruity aroma, golden with a touch of amber colour. Medium bitterness with an alcoholic aftertaste, what is getting stronger with every next drink. Interesting, but i’m not sure if i would like to drink again.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle, golden brown pour, white head, wheaty, spicy nose, caramel malt, sweet to start but gives way to dry, grassy, hoppy bitterness, lingering alcohol. A bit unbalanced but not bad.

I might not be totaly impartial since that beer is frome my hometown, but there I go...
Goudale is a "Bière de Garde", a beer very close to the Belgian blond ales, Nice beer to appreciate flemish food, and may be used to cook "welsh" and "carbonade flamande".
The beer has some grassy and metallic notes, witch is usual on Biere de Garde made with flemish hops, but has a sweater finish, with a bit of caramel and banana.
The beer has a little bit higher level of bitterness as the average Belgian blond ale, but is still quite light, with a pinch of astringence.
Goudale one of the cheapest ale you may find in almost any supermarket in France. That fact taken in account, Goudale might be one of the best balanced, all-purpose beer.
Of course, because it’s a cheap beer, it’s not 100% Barley, nor very hoppy and lacks a bit of temper, but as an affordable ale, it’s a very nice one, overall.

750ml bottle - clear yellow golden body, thin white top. Not much in the way of nose, a bit grassy, a certain estery note. Loads of spiciness on the taste, bready notes, dough, nice Belgian elements to this. Aftertaste of banana and clove, gives the impression of a wheat beer on the way out... strange, but I like this a lot.

Aranyló szín, vékony fehér hab. Illata édeskés, enyhén buzasörös élesztős. Izében leheletnyi búza érződik, erősen édes és alkoholos jegyek mellett.
