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. 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.

TBone (12538) - 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
