Panzerfaust (628) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - MAY 20, 2012
330 ml bottle from Jumbo, Valparaiso. Pours a clear golden color with a fizzy white head that diminishes quicky and leaves no lacing. Typical low-quality head from the brewery. Malty, slightly fruity flavor with notes of orange peel indeed, Vitamin C pills, Alka-seltzer, grains and a touch of nuts. A little chemical for my tastebuds. Weird. Taste is sweet-ish with a bittersweet finish. Tastes like a strong tasty pale lager. Not bad but far from the Belgian profile I expected. Body is medium. Lively carbonated, effervescent beer. Finish is a little quick and it leaves a tickling sensation in the gums and tongue. These Mont Blanc beers were a little of a hit or miss.

DeliriumT (391) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 20, 2012
Very unimpressive French beer. Tastes like the most boring pale lager in the world fermented with a reasonable yeast to create something slightly more interesting than the standard lager offerings

BenH (3088) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 25, 2012
Bottle from Henri. Very pale with a ring of white head. Aroma is fairly pleasant, citrus, grassy hops, bread. Taste has nice citrus hops, slightly spicy, peppery, caramel malt. Sweet with a crisp clean finish. Nice beer on this fine sunny day

jaghana (4734) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - MAR 11, 2012
Bottle 33cl, a yellow beer with medium head. Nose is grainy, aroma is on grain, medium sweet with fruit notes on apple and agrume, relative astringency. Not that interesting.

BeerCast_Rich (1905) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 9, 2012
[330ml bottle, Henri Morningside, Edinburgh] Every inch the blonde beer – sparkling gold, frothy white head with lazy rising carbonation. Grassy on the nose, with some yeasty notes and a bit of grain. Similar in the flavour, some citrus, dry on the finish – pretty decent continental blonde. Chatting to the Henri deli owner, apparently they are the only UK retailer of Mont Blanc beer (certainly the only Scottish retailer) – form a queue, raters! [07032012]

JorgeLee (1463) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2012
Lunchtime bottle in Les Houches when fog stopped play. Light version of a Belgian ale, a little bit unsure what it was trying to do, tasted a bit bland for an ale, didn’t really catch the spices. Having said that, it wasn’t unpleasant, just a bit boring.

Bottled 330ml. -Yellow/golden coloured, medium sized creamy white head, quite dusty nose. Moderate malty, light honeyish and fruity with notes of spices. Hint of cardboard in the finish. Pretty boring.

hawthorne00 (2887) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 20, 2012
Bottle, 10C. Very pale orange with a white head that soon vanishes. Aroma of oranges, hay, light dough. Sweet with lots of oranges, slightly sticky despite being quite thin-bodied. Slight bitterness and herbs at the end. Odd - like a mixture of a pilsener and a Belgian blond. Subtle and quite refreshing for something so sweet.
