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

jaghana (5372) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - APR 4, 2013
Bottle 33cl, a cloudy copper beer with good head. Nose is on grapefruit. Aroma is very day, just bitter with intense grapefruit notes, no malt, very boring and astringent.

sayravai (4708) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 4, 2005
(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.

Alengrin (4329) - 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.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4327) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 26, 2015
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.

Bottle. Clear copper beer with a big white head. Fruity and hoppy aroma. Sweet, fruity and hoppy flavour.

dEnk (4200) - 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.

rodenbach99 (4152) - 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.
