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.

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.

75 cl. bottle sampled @ RBESG 2013. Thx! to Ansjelaah. Big surprised that I h ave never had this one actually. Pours hazy amber, creamy white bubbles for a head. Nose is slightly chemical hops, bitter earthly malts with some sugar & sweeter malts. Taste is touch watery hops, sweet caramel, fruity, touch grapefruit with a nice earthly touch, sweet yeast & bitter herbs. Body is creamy but also slightly watery. Not bad but not zenith either. Not exciting but decent within the style.
