Really loved this beer. I’d been on a steady died of dull French blonde beers, but this thing just had so much more depth to it. The dark copper color is the first clue, then the Abbaye/Leffe-like clovey yeast note, then a smooth sweetness of well-hidden alcohol, with a crisp finish. Great value and sold in most French supermarkets too.

Blond colour beer, very enjoyable, didn’t taste overly strong despite the 8.5% ABV

RichardW (1677) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2015
Bottled Booths. Interesting chalk and concrete notes, but soon taken over by soapy pineapple and peach flavours. Smooth sweetness, light Belgian yeastiness. Lovely gold/amber appearance. Plummy finish. A characterful beer

bartlebier (2491) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - APR 6, 2015
33cl bottle bb04/2016 from Colmar. (Overly) Clean transparent golden pour. Nose of diluted honey, some toast and warning alcohol. Herbal, metallic hops join faintly almond-like refined pale malts offering up some notes of apricot and apple, before drifting off into amped, boozy Imperial Pilsner nomansland, towards a clean, almost Calvados/jenever finish with a bitter herbal hop insistence. Biere de Garde/Tripel crossover in that respect. Overall rather well done, but a bit of an onslaught.

Heavy on the marzipan flavours. It’s okay but it’s a bit sickly to be honest.
