Not as nice as the Ambree, but it’s light and very drinkable. Lovely on a nice summer’s day in Lille. Not the best but definitely worth a try

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Reims brewpub, 4/22/15
Mostly clear blonde ale is topped by a small but well-retained white head.
Yeast in the nose seems to be the most dominant aspect here, with, perhaps the malt being close behind. Crayons, very soft fruitiness (yeast) and a bit of dry hay (hops). If you don’t consider the sort of crayon-like waxiness a flaw, it’s pretty clean and uneventful/inoffensive. No alcohol noted.
Large bubbled, mostly watery texture/carbonation inserts the lightly sweet, honey and hay flavors in to your stomach and before I could really make much note, it was over. Yeast gives a little more character than your typical ultra clean american golden ale. It’s quite fruity. Don’t know why the hops are so minimal (I mean, I do know why, but...). Fine enough, and they have sculpted a beer very much to the audience they were looking to appeal to....Couldnt bring myself to stay for a second beer for fear of it putting me to sleep.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma: A rather weak smell, a dash of sweet lemon.
Appearance: The brew is a bit foggy, straw colored, e thin white head, no lacing.
Taste: The taste is a bit off and bland, sweet white bread and a dash of metallic bitterness at the end.
Palate: Medium low carbonation, rather soft - thin body, dry finish.
Overall: To thin and bland to be a real hit.
Note: on-tap in Montreal. Reviewed 2010-09-13.

On tap at 10-30
Pours clear blond/yellow with low-medium white head. Good lacing. Aroma is of belgian yeast (off?). Really taking all the place for me. Taste is of belgian yeast, malt, bitterness, citrus. Palate: Light-medium body. Soft-medium carbonation. Overall: The yeast is straight-up off. Questionnable beer.

On tap @ Les 3 Brasseurs Old Montreal. Clear golden colored beer with white foam. Light lemon and a lot of toasted grain and corn flakes. Slight grassy hoppiness. There’s a light bitterness to the taste. Grainy and very heavy on the cereal. Sort of like a bowl of corn flakes cereal. Meh.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Waiting on a train in Lille I tried 4 tasters. Pale blonde color, hazy. White head. Aroma’s: candy sugar, fruit. Retronasal there’s fruit upfront, with some caramel and citrus. Flavor is moderate sweet, grain/malt. Light bodied. A bit grainish finish, ever so slightly bitter. Like everything I tried here not spectacular, but decent.
