An interpretation Biere de Garde made with 30% wheat.

Belle blonde qui titre 7°, composée de malt d’orge et de froment, quelques épices lui donnent un parfum d’agrumes qui font sa notoriété depuis plus de 30 ans.

Shared a bottle with NoiZe and skortila. Hazy orange golden color, off-white lasting head. Aroma is very strong, penetrating orange and citrus, with a hint of alcohol, bubblegum, caramel malt. Taste is sweet and fruity, slight alcohol burn. Long aftertaste.

skortila (4801) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - OCT 7, 2005
Bottle best before june 2005. Aroma is heavy fruity, mostly orange. Malts and hops in it. Quite fresh. Hazy (tiny particles), orange coloured brew with a nice lasting head. It’s taste is not as pleasant as it’s smell. perhaps slightly unbalanced. Some sugar in it (sweetness), very fruity (orange and some other citrus), bit hoppy and malty. Decent body.

harrisoni (14842) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2005
750ml bottle from Carrefour Calais. Pours orange gold with thinning white head. I like the aroma on this. Malty with good orange rind, slightly sweet with some spiciness. Good in mouth with a little bit of candy sugar, Finish is hoppy but the dryness is balanced by the candy sugar. Good citrus flavours and spiciness.

Bottle. Light gold in colour, dissipating off white oily head, no lace. Aroma was of light yeast, perfume and floral hops. The flavour was quite floral, sweet, some citrus (lemons mainly) and yeast. Medium body, high carbonation. Finishes rather sweet, lingering.

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 2, 2005
Clear yellow w/ diminishing white foam. Aroma is yeasty (candy-ish) w/ mild notes of wheat, peppery alcohol & flowery hops. Medium feel. Flavour is yeasty, moderately sweet, & ever-so-mildly acidic, though rather bland & boring.
