Blonde à la robe paille. Cette réserve Hildegarde m’a agréablement surpris. Des aromes de fleurs, de resineux, de miel qui une fois en bouche s’accentuent sur la sève et le caramel. U e très légère amertume qui vient nuancer son coté trop sucré. Malgré ce point négatif, elle est bien ronde et equilibrée. Très bonne biere de garde.

75 cl bottle @ home. Rated on 21.02.2009
Aroma has soapy citrus, some grassy hops, herbal notes and fruits. Flavour is fruity with yeasty notes, honey, some grass and spices. Refreshing and fryuity – a positive surprise, one of the best Bière de Gardes I’ve had.

3fourths (8030) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 17, 2012
bottle-conditioned 750ml. first shed rating of the winter. hazed gold body with a white head. both sweet smelling and more estery than the Printemps, less grassy and more fruit jelly / honey-like. the sugar suggests higher alcohol and thicker mouthfeel and it delivers the same. tropical and banana-like yeast, very Belgian-like, so I would probably say it was abbey tripel if blinded, though it seems a little more chunky, pasty and muddy like hefeweizen can be. thick finish of oily spice, sweet bread and simple syrup with banana / pear / tropical ester touches. delicate carbonation, bright flavors and light acidity / tartness play nice together, but it’s a little too sweet for my tastes.

Pours yellow golden with a nice white head. Aromas of light malt, spicy hops, bread and citrus. Delicate in the mouth, same flavours, with a pronounced hoppiness at the end. Great food beer.

fiulijn (14552) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 19, 2012
Draught at La Fine Mousse, Paris
Golden color, clean, with generous head. It has a nice malt aroma, with light fruitiness, and somehow sweet, but also an unexpected touch of wood or smoke; more like an American version of Belgian Ales than else. Semi sweet flavor, with nice malt, and a delicate fruity touch that blends in very well; good bitterness level too.
Easy, and yet quite pleasant.

stevoj (2157) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 10, 2012
Nice robust flavor on this brew. Hazy, golden color with oily beige head. Heavy malt aroma, and taste is sharp and biting, with nice crisp finish. A gem!
