bdunhill (255) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 27, 2012
This Belgian Blonde pours golden with alot of CO2 and a big frothy head. It has a sweet grainy aroma and tastes refreshing with a light body and a soft finish. This beer does its namesake and the beautiful region proud!

patrick767 (4010) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 27, 2009
bottle in Bouillon, I believe credited to Brasserie de Bouillon like the Rousse - Pours clear gold with a white head. It has a mild aroma of malt and yeast. The flavor is sweet pale malt with a hint of banana. It’s light to medium bodied and finishes with just a hint of hops but still stays on the sweet side.

imdownthepub (13391) - 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.

JoeinDahlem (1456) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - AUG 5, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2015 Re-rating after... er, EIGHT years. Clear, plainly filtered, dull straw blond. Sweet, gently spiced, insipid. Clean but like a thousand others. A 1970s- or 80s-era Belgian specialty beer, surviving because tourists in Bouillon want a local beer and don’t know any better. ---- 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.
