MartinT (8135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 11, 2005
The Lure:
Citrusy meringue wobbling over a dry, big-bubbled malt crust. Sweeter and possibly more refreshing than its siamese sister, St.Benoit Blonde.

The Festivities:
Lemon flavors the water but cannot erase the mineral character within. Subdued cookie sweetness and weak hop finish can be found after investigating the fluffy bubbles.

Transcendence:
Commercial tourism can at least pry open some world-fearing eyes, but becomes a terrible bore for those already flying.
