imdownthepub (9672) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2007
Bottle conditioned, 330ml, at The Kings Tavern, Au Roy de la Biere, Sedan, France. Gold beer with white head. A nice find this pub, before visiting the chateau, quite a decent beer list. The beer is sweet and spicy, and i’m getting pretty cheesed with spice in beer now, sticky and somewhat lacking in finish. Average.

33 cL, translucent gold with a decent white head. Aroma is honey-like with touches of hops and spices. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly spiced and faintly bitter. Alcohol flavor is moderate, body is medium. Refreshing and balanced, nothing amazing but well made.

Bottle. Clear golden colour with a creamy white head. Spicy aroma with a good portion coriander, but also some fruity and yeasty notes. sweet and yeasty flavours with coriander ever-present, hints of banana and herbal hops. Fizzy. An enjoyable blonde it is.

Rastacouere (6107) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 20, 2005
Clear light golden, faint white head. Full on coriander attacks the nose, hiding a mellow herbal spiciness and totally dominating the aromatic components. Very sweet in mouth, where banana esters try to procure interesting yeast character, extreme coriander levels strike again, reducing the hops to a murmur. Ample carbonation, medium bodied. Under average.

Pours a cloudy yellow color with a thin white head. The aroma is interesting and makes me want to drink the beer, I could smell black pepper, yeast and fruits. The flavor is also interesting, the same black pepper, yeast and fruits were found. The body has a medium thickness with a creamy and dry texture, the carbonation is lively. I enjoyed this beer that was unknown to me previously.

The label specifies that the brewery is called Brasserie du Grand Enclos in Bouillon, no mention of DuBocq, maybe they got bought out. Got a 4 pack with 2 blondes and 2 rousses with the glass near Bouillon, near the French border. Godefroy de Bouillon lead the first cruisade.

Golden and slightly hazy, the head consisted only of a slick of bubbles after the initial foam died down.
Relatively typical belgian yeast profile, spicy with a bit of coriander, perhaps a little bit of grassy hops.
Decent carbonation that places the simple yet pleasing yeast spicyness in front, the hops follwing suit. I had zero expectations from this one, expected the worse and ended up with a nice, sessionable belgian ale.

The Lure:
Coriander-riding yeast teaming up with the produced fruity esters. Simple and clean spiciness for a pleasant glass to follow.

The Festivities:
Bready yeast offering pineapple-like fruity esters. A dryish finish cuts pleasure a bit short, but overall this remains a clean and simply well-made Belgian Ale.

He’s a good guy, very accomodating.
