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

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.

rodenbach99 (3515) - 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.

Alengrin (3147) - 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.

MrHangover (3140) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 27, 2015
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy blonde beer with a medium sized white head on top, Aroma is bready, yeasty, fruity and malty. Typical Belgian aroma to it. Flavor is basically the same, medium sweet, slight bitterness and not much else to it actually. Another average Belgian Ale, with nothing new to add to the style. Meh
