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.

Clear golden beer with a light banana aroma. Flavour is banana too but milder with some bitter hop. It actually finishes surprisingly dry. Quite tasty.

Bottle. Smells of grassy hop, clove, bit of wheat and yeast. Tastes of grassy hop, Belgian spice, corn. Body is medium slick, spicy/fizzy and quite smooth. Plenty of barnyard in this bier de garde but taste doesn't have much depth.

jgb9348 (4655) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUL 3, 2014
Nice completely crisp amber and copper coloured body with a two centimetre tall just off-white head. Aroma of grass, malt, light hops, alcohol and a smooth bit of apricot and fruits. Medium-bodied; Assertive malt and herbs at first in the taste with a little sweetness and a touch of honey noticeable right afterwards. Aftertaste shows some grassy, herbal and spice notes throughout with a good balance of the malt and a touch of the spicy yeast as well. Overall, a decent biere de garde that is slightly pale in the spice and grassy character, but still shows enough. I sampled this full 75 cL bottle purchased from City’Super! in Harbour City, Kowloon, Hong Kong on 02-July-2014 for just HK$43,00 sampled back in my hotel room in Wan Chai, Hong Kong on 03-July-2014.
