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

TBone (12335) - Pori, FINLAND - SEP 7, 2006
Bottled 0,75 ltr (BB 09/2008). Hazy orange color, small but steady white head, some lace. Earthy, mouldy, peppery aroma - similar to some Fantomes. Very earthy, peppery and citrusy. Long peppery aftertaste. I am not sure if so dominant earthyness is intended. This is maybe more like a saison than just "a Belgian Ale".

UPDATED: JUL 24, 2011 75cl, as Mistinguett, exclusive brewery, from the brewery, not complex, not balanced, hazy, good head, nothing special, needs to be revised

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - NOV 17, 2005
Mango and a touch of vinegar in the aroma. Hopbitter flavor with mango, lemon and a touch of vanilla. The first sings of sourness are showing. Hopbitter, a bit oily aftertaste, medium to full bodied. Not too bad, could be much better.

bartlebier (1486) - 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.
