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

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - DEC 12, 2010
Bottle. Pours a clear and amber beer with a white head. The aroma is malt, sweetness and some brett. The flavor follows the nose with some additional notes of spices. The palate is sweetness. Overall a good beer.

rodenbach99 (3239) - 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.

Bart (2939) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 13, 2013
33cl bottle @ home. Golden darker blond coloured beer with some light carbonation and a small diminishing white head. Refreshing floral hoppy hinted aroma. Medium to full palate. Finish is light bitter hoppy with a longer dry hop bitter ending. Not bad.

Bottle, 75cl. Hazy golden color with a large white head. Aroma sour, bit pilsener like, and malts. Medium body. Taste a bit sweetness (little honey ?), semi-dry, malts, fruity, low bitterness. A very good, normal blonde.

Alengrin (2324) - BELGIUM - SEP 6, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2014 One of several "new generation" Sainte-Hélène beers, actually the old Sainte-Hélène Blonde (also tasted under that name) with a new label; a blonde session ale with thick mousse-like, yellowish white head and light peach blonde colour with tiny yeast particles floating around everywhere. Aroma of orange peel, vanilla, pineapple, straw, flowers, lime, yeast. Citrussy freshness in the mouth, fruity, rounded and slick mouthfeel, yeasty, malt sweetness with pretty strong hop bitterness, grapefruity and long, with a sourish touch in the finish possibly coming from the carbonation.

bartlebier (1872) - 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.
