Bottle from Open All Hours, Keswick. Pleasantly quaffable Belgian Blond. Miles better than Leffe, with better hop character, and good aroma from the yeast.

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.

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.
