COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Grisette Blonde is a pale ale that is very refreshing in summer. When drunk at a moderate temperature, it releases aromas of a richness that it is seldom found in other beers of this strength. Its head is smooth and white. It has a light yellow colour.

madsberg (10184) - Søborg, DENMARK - OCT 15, 2006
Bottled. Unclear yellow coloured. Dense white head. Sweet, fruity and light yeasty beer both in aroma and flavour. Quite easy to drink and very fresh, but also a bit too bland. Is thin and watery. Ends on a light spiced and fruity note.

Rastacouere (6129) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 5, 2006
Totally filtered golden ale nevertheless presenting a long-lasting, large white cover with belgian lace. Highly grainy maltiness and a hefty dose of coriander pretty much annihilate any other flavor component, making the beer bi-dimensional. The yeast never manages to impart much character besides dullish breadiness and redundant esters that walk hand in hand with the coriander. Quite fizzy on the tongue as well, which does not help to improve its taste range. So the bottom line is that this could have been interesting and I’d be curious to try a version with the appropriate palate, e.g. not drowned in coriander and thinness from the filtration.

All of the grisette beers are good, they are what we normally drink at lunch time, so we can still work in the afternoon ! Living and working in Belgium is hell :o)

CapFlu (4522) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 17, 2006
(25cl bottle) Pours a huge, frothy cloud of a white head with a hazy golden body. Nose of mild citrus, oranges, yeast and coriander spice. Flavour is a tad thin, mildly milky within a good yeasty tongue. All in all average but would be daily very drinkable.

Skinnyviking (7062) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 28, 2006
Bottle. White high a good looking head. Light yellow clear body. Lemon aroma. Not much bitterness and a thin mouthfeel, on the other hand the aftertaste stays in your mouth for a long time.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - APR 24, 2006
25 cl bottle. Yeast at the bottom. Golden colour with a fast disappearing white head. Aroma of yeast, fruit and honey. Fresh flavour of yeast, malt and ends up little watery and with a light bitter finish.

rederic (2942) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 1, 2006
Cloudy yellow gold color, with a frothy white head, with pale malt, hint of fruitiness, with a spicy vanilla note, and yeasty aroma follows through on a light-bodied palate with a zesty floral hops character, with a fruity yeast showing a strange medicinal note, with an earthy and leafy accents, in a lingering citrusy hoppy and bitter finish.

Gr0ve (2134) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 20, 2006
250 ml bottle. Thick creamy head that clings to the glass. Golden. Slightly hazy. Fresh aroma of grey pears. Wit-like aroma. Wheaty clean flavours. Some malts, but rather thin-bodied. Dry hoppiness. Somewhat like a dry saison in the aftertaste, where there is a grainy dryness and grassy dry hops.
