Née en 1919, la recette de la Géante est relancée et mise au goût du jour par la brasserie Grain d’Orge. Il s’agit d’une bière douce très légèrement amère mêlant des houblons des Flandres, du malt d’orge de printemps et du blé de Beauce brassés dans une eau naturellement riche en oligo-éléments. Elle titre 7,4 ° d’alcool, est vendue en bouteille verre 1 litre avec marquage incrusté et bouchon mécanique en céramique. En hommage à l’histoire de la brasserie, la Géante porte sur le col le nom des fondateurs de la Brasserie Grain d’orge en 1898 : Desruelle-Theetten

75cl Bottle, thanks Henkie! Clear golden colour, white head. Aroma of sweet fruits, yeast, bubblegum, very Leffe-like. Flavour is sweet, fruity, esters, some sweet alcohol, yeast, decent bitter finish. Light to medium-bodied. A bit boring, but nice enough.

Bottle: Small medium off white head on top of a clear yellow to orange colored beer. Smell tangerine, yeast, (sharper) grains, hints of marzepin, urine and light glue. Taste malts, fruit, orange, tangerine, marzepine, light light grainy sour tint, some hay. Grassy hayish malts in the aftertaste. Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel, medium body and a creamy texture.

stevoj (2486) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 7, 2012
Nice orange/copper color with one finger off-white creamy head. Poured into snifter. Active fine carbonation keeps the head going. Taste is biting, with cidery overtones,smell also hints at apples/cider. Inital taste was off-putting, but getting used to the nuances as it warms and I sip. Interesting beer.

kaziopiwosz (362) - Warszawa / Wałbrzych, POLAND - SEP 9, 2012
Good bitter palate. White, thick foam, stays very long. Dark-golden colour, almost ideal. The best French beer I drank so far.
