COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A blond-coloured beer containing brewer's yeast, La Jamboise is very pleasant to drink and quite cool to the palate. Connoisseurs, on savouring it, will recognise a touch of the piquant taste so characteristic of mustard seeds.

Ungstrup (29850) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 30, 2004
The aroma is very light - primarily spicy (probably the mustard) with notes of oranges. The color is a hazy orange and it has a huge head. The flavor is very nice, a mellow sweet background which there is spices, oranges, and mango. The mustard hits You in the end and combines with a hop bitterness for a very interesting end. A fine beer.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) My version was from now defunct "Les artisans Brasseurs" in Namur - 6% ABV. Golden beer with collossal amounts of floaties, gee this is really lumpy yeast. Stable, dense and oily head - from the mustard seeds? No, this doesn’t taste like Heiz Classic Mustard, but it’s oddly spiced in a way I haven’t really tried before. Decent blond ale, although a bit flat in carbonation with a slight, bitter finish. 150799

Bottled. Pale golden, very lively, rich head. Herbal aroma. Sweet, fruity and estery. Light bodied with short but rounded mouthfeel. I don't get any of the mustard.

Bov (9810) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUN 3, 2002
orange colour, big creamy head, nice lace, fresh and spicy, full-bodied, slightly tart (here comes the mustard! but stays very subtle), long dry bitter finish - well-balanced and interesting

MoritzF (8590) - Bochum, GERMANY - MAY 7, 2005
(bottle) Hazy and pale orange colour with a big foamy lasting white head. Floral hoppy aroma with citric, yeasty and spicy elements. Medium sweet flavour and carbonation. Initially malty sweet taste with a musty spiced and smooth bitterhoppy finish. A great experience, especially the mustard blended finish.

JorisPPattyn (8034) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 26, 2003
Beer brewed by Lefèbvre for mustard factory Bister in Jambes. There used to be a first version by Mibrana at Namur. Orange colour, slightly hazy. Very thick head, mass of minuscule bubbles. Orange rind, even orange juice in the nose. Carbon dioxide. A bit spicey. Very light, fruitey, slightly sourish taste. There is a faint flavour, mostly retronasal, that is no doubt the mustard speaking. For the rest, the taste is very restrained - not at all like the first Mibrana version, that was quite spicey. Mouthfeel is surprisingly refreshing. Not much body. Even less aftertaste than taste. The idea is great. Mibrana made something out of it to be remembered. The beer of Lefèbvre is... superfluous.

sebletitje (6895) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 29, 2012
33cl bottle @ 8ème Fête de la Bière Namuroise. Dorée blanche. Arôme malté léger caramel avec une brève note houblonnée et une moutarde qui est pour moi indétectable. Profile reste bien belge avec une moutarde faiblarde, fini grains, sec au palais avec un léger côté houblonné citronné. L’alcool malgré ces 6.5% se développe bien et réchauffe en fin de bouche. Tout comme l’avis du reste de notre table cette version est en manque de moutarde, l’ancienne mettait cette dernière plus à profit.

Ernest (6353) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 7, 2002
Head is intially large, frothy, rocky, white, fully lasting. Body is hazy medium yellow, dense tiny particles, bottle conditioned. Aroma is moderately hoppy (citrus - lemon, herbs, flowers), lightly malty (cookie), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with notes of coriander and clove. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Light to medium body, creamy texture, lively carbonation. Very brisk, bright, and pleasantly tart...this is, to me, very close to a witbier, and as such a very good one. Mustard seed is really not that apparent to me.

A fresh and spicy beer. Quite interesting and not very "bister".
