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.

gegwilson (2379) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2014
Bottle from a French supermarket. Golden with a white head. Served slightly over warm due to camping, but this was pretty disappointing anyway. Tastes like a strong lager with spicy notes along with a hint of soap and evident alcohol. Not great.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2014
Bottled 03/08/14. A blonde beer with a white head and lace. Quite sweet and perfumed although highly hopped. Herbal notes too. The hops and the weird sweetness are an interesting combination and not entirely unpleasant. Has a decent body too. It’s fine.

vipinvelp (3148) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - AUG 5, 2014
Clear golden with white lacing foam head. Aroma is malty, some wheat and something undefined. The undefined syrfaced when drinking, taste dough, barley taste. Typical. (Velp 201408)

Bamsen78 (4605) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 28, 2014
Bottle @ Pub L’Escale, Reims. Pours slightly hazy amber with small white head. Clear aroma of malt and fruit, with touches of honey, hops and spice. Sweetish onset of malt and fruit, giving way to bitter notes of hops and spicy touches. Estery finish with some bitter notes. Okay, rather well-balanced, but nothing really inspiring.

KansaiBeerLvrs (3557) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 21, 2014
On tap at the GJBF in Osaka 2014. Angelus, 7%. A very clear light gold. Big yeasty fruity nose, very Belgian like with a healthy dose of spices. The taste is earthy, white pepper, coriander, orange and fruity sweetness. Slick mouthfeel. Not bad.

Clear golden blond. Earthy, hoppy aroma. Flavour has initial sweet malt but backed up with a light fresh hoppiness. Strong peppery flavour in the finish and aftertaste.
