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.

dhurtubise (568) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 1, 2003
Straw - gold with brilliant white head and typical belgian lace. It has a nice light grainy aroma. Though I cannot detect the mustard in this beer, it is extremely quaffable with fruity ester aromas and flavours and perfect balance.

lachesis (757) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - FEB 23, 2005
Hazy light amber with strange greenish shine. This beer has a massive froth with the caracteristics of wipped egg-white. Complex nose with good maltyness, some honey, barnyard aromas, yeast and some herbal spices. The taste is complex and has a smooth mouthfeel with a good livelyness. Taste of malts, honey, buttercake, fresh stonefruits and touches of sage, laurel and fine hop selections. A very good beer with an original taste. At the KULMINATOR in Antwerp.

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.

Ernest (6319) - 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.

Bov (9717) - 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

sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 11, 2005
(Bottled) Very hazy orange-yellow color with a medium, tight, lacy and creamy head. Very fruity, yeasty aroma with lemon and hay, and a hint of alcohol. Very, very fruity, slightly sweet flavor with banana and yeast. Medium-bodied, slicky palate with foamy but smooth carbonation. A very pleasant and well-balanced, quite straightforward blonde. Refreshing!

Bart (2939) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUN 5, 2006
Hazy yellow coloured, quiet a lot of carbonation and an average white head. Sweet malty aroma, some light herbal yeasty touches. Very nice, full body, smouth with a little sprankling. Finish is light bitter with an unique somewhat tinteling mouthfeel, caused by the spicy undertone (I guess the mustard seeds).Long aftertaste, at the end more piquant. Very nice, I love this one.

bring on the mustard, this beer was given to me by my father who came back from belgium. I loved it's yellow white cloudy color with a nice refreshing aroma. the decent white head made way for a unique taste. Sweet fruit and wheat were noticed. great balanced palate with a clean slight spicy finish. Very refreshing. Beats a "hoe" any day.

JorisPPattyn (8017) - 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.

Ungstrup (29694) - 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.
