This is my favorite French beer I drink a couple every night. It is now available in 33cl bottles. It is interesting how few people described the beer accurately as it is flavoured with orange zest and coriander. Goudale responds well to being chilled. Gayant brewery also make beers that are sometimes sold in Lidl these are great value and well worth buying I just bought 7 cases of Abaye beer in 75cl bottles for 1.5 euros a bottle - very good value. Tastes like a less alcoholic and less flavored Goudale. Damn shame the beer had ben pasteurised. Would love to try unpasteurised Gayamt beers.

bnokk (275) - Ohio, USA - JUL 23, 2015
July 2015, bottled in 2005. APPEARANCE – super light golden color. White head laces nicely, but dissipates quickly NOSE – grassy and slightly earthy hoppy scents. FLAVOR – first thing I noticed is the good mouthfeel, kind of like a stout. Light flavor with something I can’t quite identify. Could be the contribution of the wheat or rice. NOTES – the flavors of French Terroir comes through.

jamaty (1239) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 11, 2015
75cl. Corteza de naranja y maíz. Dorada con dos dedos de espuma. Notable aroma floral y naranja. Bastante cuerpo y carbonatacion media en un tono fuertemente amargo y duradero, adornado con los matices que aporta el lúpulo, muy aromático. Demasiado amarga para ser grande.

Pours a clear gold from the bomber with thin white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of sweet Belgian yeast and diacytel. Oxidized and old, meh.

MarkoNm (1476) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - MAY 17, 2015
Pours a clear, darker golden color, topped with a rather small white foamy head. Malty aroma with some bready notes, and some fruits and spices hidden in the back. Taste follows the nose with some intial sweetness, moderate hoppy bitterness in the body with some yeasty presence and some mild spices. Not a bad one, perfectly nice.
