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.

Nice beer! Trying today to score a Dutch girl and this is a perfect warm up! Germany playing as well but there are more important issues!

In general it is not a bad beer, I would even say a reasonably good tasting beer. But it's not due to its expressive apearance or distinguished tasted. The beer tastes just balanced and soft. Although there is quite a high alcohol % it tastes pretty soft and a little sweet. However some fruity hop tones are also tasted. The softness could possible come from the added rice (ingredients). The koriander is difficult to determine. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

This one was a great surprise! Lot of taste, acid and sweet (good balance), generous on the alcohol side. Tasted like old time.

Fine flavour and mild taste, but a bit borring and pale. Maybe good on a very varm sommerday instead of water.
