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

hopscotch (8890) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 24, 2004
Hazy, deep golden ale with a large, frothy, white head. Diminishes to a small, lasting, creamy head with ink-blot lacework. The nose is of fuzzy fruit, pear and orange peel. Well-balanced flavor with a bit of toffee, apricot and pear thrown in, but a touch bland. Full-bodied with a very creamy mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Short, lightly sweet and then bone-dry finish.

Bottle. Pours a light orange with a medium, white head. Aroma is quite fruity; apricot and peach, some apple and lemon, a bit of vanilla. Light dried fruit and light yeast. Taste is quite a lot of fruitiness. Apple and mandarin, dry, a bit acrid. Apricot and peach. Very short aftertaste unfortunately. Light with medium carbonation. Alright quaffer, but forgettable.
