COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Gouverneur Blonde is a top-fermented special beer with a very characteristic, strong taste and an unparalleled fruity aftertaste. A beer that you would like to keep on flowing. Gouverneur Blonde is brewed with hop (the renowned Tettnanger hop from the South of Germany) and an extra large quantity of barley malt. Hence its golden colour, its full-bodied and malty aftertaste and an alcohol content of 6,5% by volume. Gouverneur Blonde is a beer that is brewed with love and affection. Connoisseurs know that and we have plenty of connoisseurs over here.

Nice and dry, yet fruity aftertaste. Rich in the mouth, and a very very good beer indeed.

BlackHaddock (3488) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2012
30cl Bottle: best before Apr 2013, poured into a Hoegaarden Grand Cru badged tulip @ home on 7th Nov 2012. Nice looking beer: light amber body that is clear and bright, on top a full, deep foaming head which although shrinks, does try and hang around for a while. Malty nose of sweet molasses, some yeast notes too. This is a fairly sweet Blonde and she knows it: biscuity, shortbready malts with a summer orchard of fruitiness along with the blossom. I prefer this sort of beer to the sour or bitter types and this Dutch Blonde and I would get along just fine at any time of the year, any where in the world.

300 ml bottle at home, poured into my tulip glass. Two fingers of soapy white head, with very good retention after it loses hald of its initial height. Lots of bits and pieces floating around after my hard pour. Colour is deep orange golden. On the aroma yeast, some alcohol, hops and peach. Rich and full, somewhere on the back some malts too. Taste is quite sweet and malty, which in combination with the high alcohol make this beer taste like an imperial pils. Not necessarily bad, but lots of the elements on the nose are gone and only the alcohol and the malts , now much more pronounced, have remained. Thankfully, it leaves a bitter aftertaste with lots of hops. Medium body, carbonation slighty above average, just a bit dry on the palate. Now, this is not anything very special, but it’s an honest blond strong beer. It won’t make you love it but it won’t disappoint you either.

20110605 Home (30 cl bottle): A clear yellow beer with a good white head. This is a bottle conditioned beer, but we could not see this. The aroma is light malty, fruity-sweetness (yellow fruit, like peer, apple, perzik). The taste is in the beginning aslike the arome. Some alcohol and a hopbitter finish with still some sweetness and fruity. The beer is sticky.
