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.

Interesting beer, with the sweetness of a trappist but some bitterness behind.

Holmen2 (1406) - NORWAY - FEB 14, 2015
From tap at Le Priez, Lille, with KL 14.02.15. Clear golden. Lingering white head and lacing. Moderate aroma with hints of grass. Fruity, but refreshing, taste. Decent bitterness in crisp aftertaste. Dry and equally crisp mouthfeel.

rodenbach99 (3302) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 31, 2015
Bouteille de 750ml avec bouchon de liège. Bière blonde dorée translucide avec une mousse blanche. Un nez de malt et de blé avec une touche de houblon épicée. La bouche est agréable avec des notes de houblons très épicées et une finale de blé.

Une bonne blonde classique qui, sans être extraordinaire, donne exactement ce qui est recherché dans la bière à l’ancienne, légèrement sucrée avec des aromes floraux et fruités.

Extrêmement bof. Côté sucré déplaisant, bière mal balancée. Aucun aspect vraiment digne d’intérêt. Vite oubliée.

BadAprilia1000 (310) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 11, 2015
Pours a lovely dark orange amber color with a thin but consistently there head. Aroma is faint hop bitter, sour green apple skin, tart, malty, bready, fruity, yeasty cereal, faint lemon finish. Taste is sweet bread, malt, lemon water, faint fruit, green apple, orange. Mouthfeel is somewhat thick despite adequate carbonation. First of the style so I’m not sure but it seemed somewhat flat.
