Golden, with an ok white head. Aroma from caramel and fruit. Flavor brings grapefruit and apples, some malts, some bitterness.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
A light Golden color with a huge rocky white head. A grassy scent with some mild spice. The flavor is odd, unfortunately the spice reminds me a bit of an aftershave, this isn't a good thing in a beer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Blonde with a large white head. Bitter/sweet with medium bitter finish, nothing wrong with this but nothing remarkable either.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled (250ml). Pale gold colour. Grassy aroma with some yeast. Clean and fresh, but no great complexity. Essentially this is a good quaffer. But you'd need to buy a few if you were quaffing - not only a Belgian beer under 5%, but in 250ml bottles. Needless to say, this one didn't last long. Although this is badged as a St Feuillen beer, the latest edition of Tim Webb's book suggests it is contract brewed at Heineken's Affligem plant. Incidentally, as well as being a small warbler-like bird, grisette was also 19th century French slang for a sexually active woman of the lower orders. The closest current UK colloquial equivalent is probably slapper.

Bottle. Clean and refreshing with some sweetness and a gentle but interesting and juicy citric dance. A decent little brew.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nose is spicy. Very spicy blond ale with notes of corriander and curacao. There is a sour bitterness to this beer that is quite pleasant.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A real surprise. No, not the taste (I’ll get to that in a minute). The shock is that I found a Belgian Ale under 5% abv. This is like finding a four-leaf clover or something. Anyway, the aroma is just a terrific wallop of bready malt, followed by a similarly nice, crisp and spicy taste. A session Belgian, if there is such a thing. Truly a keeper.
