Tasting from bottle at Mi-orge Mi-houblon. Slightly, almost clear yellow colour with a thin white head. Citrus, hay, yeast and fruity aroma. Average carbonation and light body. Taste is quite hoppy with a long dry finish. More bitter than sweet. Overall, nice refreshing brew.

Bière blonde de base refermentée, non filtrée, non pasteurisée, titrant un modeste 4,5 % abv, mais nous sommes d’accord, il s’agit de la « petite » frangine. La frangine normale titre elle à 6,5 %. Le houblon employé est du Columbus, et le niveau EBU est de 40. Couleur doré soutenu brillant. Levure en suspension. Bulles fines partout. Mousse blanche crémeuse, bien épaisse, à petits cratères en haut. Arômes de malt clair, pain bis, zeste de citron, amandes vertes 1ère bouche structurée, sur un très beau malt, et un houblon amer qui le dépasse. Arrière-bouche sur le houblon Columbus amérisant. 2ème beaucoup plus équilibrée où le malt vient en soutien fortement. 3ème à la fantastique amertume rappelant l’Orval. Arrière-bouche avec des agrumes et des fruits verts. La longueur donne une bière qui ne descend absolument pas, mais qui se développe. La levure est souple, fine, pointe de sel. Magnifique. (Il paraît qu’elle viendrait d’Orval...). L’alcool est étonnant pour son faible niveau, il fait son travail parfaitement. La finale procure des nuances qui sont de plus en plus complexes, avec notamment une amertume exceptionnelle. CONCLUSION : une bière au décompte final de classe pure. Très grande surprise, vu le niveau abv, mais on a mis tous les éléments pour en faire une grande bière. Bravo.

Dobre, po prostu chmiel Columbus rzadzi w tym piwie. Posmak jablkowo cytrusowy. Limonkowy, troche moreli i wytrawna goryczka. Piwo lekkie o niskiej zawartosci alkoholu jak na belgie. Piana srednia ale trwala nawet. Piwo od poczatku w calosci metne, ale nie mialem problemu z oderwaniem drozdzy od dna butelki, po prostu sobie plywaly po calej zawartosci buteleczki. Piwo wydajace sie proste a zaskakuje, zwlaszcza tym chmielnym smakiem i aromatem. Podobne do APA

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein leicht trübes goldenes Bier mit ordentlicher Schaumkrone. Geruch hefig, malzig süß, leicht würzig. Geschmack leicht hefig, fruchtig malzig, Gewürze, blumig.

4/III/14 - 33cl bottle @ home - n/a (no marking to indicate a date on the side of the label) (2014-242) Thanks to Dominique for the bottle!

Clear blond beer, big foamy irregular white head, little stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: very fruity, citrus, hay, some saison notes, peaches, some pineapple. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: pretty bitter start, some citrus, hay, dry, bit yeasty, fruity. Aftertaste: pineapple and citrus, lots of grapefruit, bit of medicinal bitter ending. Very good beer!

RoyceH (1196) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - JAN 11, 2014
Bottle from mi-orge mi-houblon. Slightly hazy blonde, small white head. Nose is yeasty, slightly sour maltiness, bread. Mouth is initially grassy hop, hay, bitter, then a dry bitter finish that mellows out into roasted maltiness, which amplifies as the beer warms. Pretty good.

Tap at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Golden, clear, with a tall pillowy head. Malty aroma with lots of noble hops, bready. Very pilsner-like. Crisp and light flavor, very bitter. Quite nice, light and drinkable, much like a pils.

77ships (4251) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 15, 2013
Sampled draft @ Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas during Zwanze day 2013. Hazy golden with a fading white head. Nose is big barnyard, hay, peppery, quite rustic & Wallonian with some nice hops. Tastes rustic with some barnyard, hay, white pepper, touch hops, lemon combined with some malt & touch candy sugar sweetness which lessens it a bit. Hazy & bit oily body. (Thx! for sharing people!)
