(Bottled, 0.75l) Very hazy golden color with a largeish head. Slightly sour, buttery, cellary, Czech-pilsenery aroma. Quite ashy, smoky flavor with some grapefruit - not very complex. Medium-bodied, semi-dry, low-carbonated palate. A very decent, smoky blonde. Interesting.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Another Carrefour find, this time served in the teku glass. This was a slow gusher and not so great looking, bizarre muddy gold?!?! Cool label of a cute woman and decent sub-2€ price. The aroma is bready, tomato-pesto spices, honey and unmalted wheat. Light bodied with a zesty mouthfeel. The taste is bready grainy sweet honey with a dab of fruitiness in the finish. This is a weak half-assed beer.
