2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
The least appealing of the ’La Gauloise’ beers. Hazy golden with a large white head. Yeast and spice aroma. Sweet taste, slightly citric, with lots of yeast at the back, but the overall impression is watery and disappointing.

Golden and clear, looks like a lager when poured, but tastes a little like a witbier/weisse. Ok, but not really my cup of tea.

Good clear golden colour, only a slight haze. Head, while not thick, did last a wee while. Nose is a nice mix of malt and citrus fruit. Smooth and well balanced with a hint of citrus acidity. A good beer, not my favourite blonde tho! Tesco 750ml.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden slightly clouded hue with a decent white foamy head. Orange yeast and malty nose which follows though to the taste which has some spicey notes with a long citrussy after taste. The bubbles are quite lively for a beer of this type however this remains one of the best beers of this type that I have tasted for a while.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can. Yellow colour with a cloudy and sparkling look. Initial appearance of head was huge white coloured, which fully lasted. Left some excellent lacing on the glass. Aroma was very yeasty, spice, citrus, flowers, grass and coriander. Some malt comes into play with light notes of grain and hints of soft bread. Flavour is medium sweet. Medium bodied. Carbonation was lively. Sweet and soft like finish. Excellent Blonde Ale I thought.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle (Tesco). Clear straw colour and very carbonated, lots of yeast in the bottle, but fortunately this was well settled. The frothy white head lasted well. The taste was typically blonde with obvious alcohol and a sweet aftertaste.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 750ml. A light amber colour with an average sized diminishing head. Sweet, somewhat medicinal/chemical aromas with some malt evident. The taste is sweet with alcohol quite evident along with cherry, pear, malt, caramel/honey and some hops and a hint of yeast. A somewhat sweet, malty, alcoholic finish. A pretty typical Belgian Ale.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
750ml bottle from Tesco. Cloudy yellow colour with a thick white head. Aroma of fruit (peach and a touch of cherry). To taste sweet fruit malt, some spice and some yeast. Overall a mess of different flavours, not good.

oh dear, after sniffing of this I was certain that this would be extremely good. Nice aroma of corns, lemons and insence (!?). Taste was just too carbonated and too sweet, hints of plums and peachas but to sweet finish
