poech73 (369) - Braine, BELGIUM - SEP 18, 2016
From Aushopping Bière blonde à la robe légèrement cuivrée quasi sans nez; effluves fugaces de grain d’orge caramélisé, d’épices et de sucre. Ronde à l’attaque, la gorgée livre en plus quelques saveurs épicées à la réglisse et la coriandre. La garde apporte beaucoup d’équilibre au milieu de bouche: belle régularité dans les goûts entre la douceur de l’orge vaguement panifié, une légère astringence du froment et le sucre agréable et finement épicée. Finale sèche, bien nette, timide sur des notes herbacées voire résineuses mais très lointaines. Simple et honnête #369

zacgillbanks (4454) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2015
Bottle from Carrefour, Calais, France. Hazy golden coloured with a spicy fruity and herbal flavour, a slight thin body followed by a smooth, dry, slight soapy finish.

teorn88 (6459) - Out of the EU, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2014
Backlog rating. Bottle at Caspar tasting at Chriso’s, London. Another sweet, malty, bready, biscuity BdG, not really my cup of tea. Lightly boozy, too

Leighton (18526) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2014
Bottle shared at chriso’s - big thanks to Ian. Pours crystal clear gold with a foamy, white head. Sugary bread on the nose, some cereal, grains. Medium sweet flavor with more grainy malts, toasted augars, cereal, vague citrus. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Sugary finish with more grainy bread, more cereal, dough, hints of lemon meringue, hay. Lingering cereal and doughy, pale bread. Solid BdG.

Scopey (12505) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2014
Bottle sort of thanks to Ian. It pours clear golden-amber with a thick white head. The nose is toasty, doughy, metallic, residual sweetness, candy, melon and some metallic notes. The taste is crisp, bitter, orange peel, lemon, spice, metallic, orange sponge cake, melon and pear with a dry finish. Medium body and high carbonation. Perhaps a touch sweet, but ok.
