COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mariage d’un houblon anglais et allemand, elle dégage un nez subtil, frais et bien houblonné. Sa robe blond-or délicate révèle son caractère simple et sobre. En bouche, la bière sèche et ronde à la fois, permet un équilibre gustatif qui la rend très accessible. Servie fraiche dans son verre tulipe, elle désaltère et laisse échapper du col le meilleur de son parfum.

Style : Bière blonde
Couleur : Blond or
Houblons : Brewers Gold, Pioneer
Température de service : 6-8°C
Verre : verre tulipe de la brasserie

Erasmus_ro (1309) - Alabama, USA - DEC 15, 2013
Bottle. Pours a light orange with a medium, white head. Aroma is quite fruity; apricot and peach, some apple and lemon, a bit of vanilla. Light dried fruit and light yeast. Taste is quite a lot of fruitiness. Apple and mandarin, dry, a bit acrid. Apricot and peach. Very short aftertaste unfortunately. Light with medium carbonation. Alright quaffer, but forgettable.

rodenbach99 (3138) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 7, 2013
Une bouteille de 750ml. bue au Saint-Bock. Une bière blonde-jaune trouble avec une légère mousse blanche. Le nez est simplement composé de malt pilsner et d’épices provenant de la levure et sous-produit de fermentation. Une bouche simple, épicée agréable avec une finale quelque peu sucrée. Est-ce que Jeanne Bourgeois serait fière de cette bière.

thanatosti (903) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 26, 2013
Vacation 2013 @ Virton, Belgium. 75 cl. bottle @ the bungalow, bought @ the local Delhaize supermarket.

Hazy golden with a big white head. Hoppy fruity nose. Hoppy blonde taste with a nice bitterness. A more than decent hoppy blonde.

bottle, donated by jaghana! Golden colour, mid-sized white head. Solid malty base with nice floral-grassy hops. A good one.

dEnk (3781) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 6, 2013
Bottle @ RBESG. Faint flowery hops in the aroma, not much else. Flavour is wheat vanilla and flowers covered in a light bitterness. Okay I guess.

@ RBESG 13 Grand Tasting, leuk etiket, oranje en heldere kleur, witte schuimkraag, mout, beetje gewoontjes, maar zeker niet vies

bartlebier (1640) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - JUL 25, 2013
75cl@Miorge-Mihoublon 2012. Had this a fair while back as part of a Sainte-Hélène "female lure" series buy. Remember this being a confused grassy and yeast-cloyed mix of Belgian blonde and cardboard saison, quality EU hops not used sparingly but somehow in vain.
