This is hands down better than almost any pale lager out here, light but robust in aroma and taste. Some citrus qualities mix well with the cereal grains. Nice fluffy head and lots of sticky lacing. This is an everyday drinking beer, perfect for summertime and picnics.

Can. Poured a nice golden blonde color with a small off-white head. Aroma was notes of grassy malts, touch of corn flakes, light sweetness. Flavor had notes of light corn, sweet malts, light herbal and earthy hops. Okay.

Very impressive lasting head. Aroma is lemon grass. TAste is lemon grass and noble hops. Palate is solid for the abv. Overall a nice low gravity beer when you want a summer citrus type of beer.

12oz bottle shared by joemcphee with me, blankboy, gregclow, jercraigs and mabel. Pale clear gold with a small white head. Dry and sharply spicy aroma - like a dry-hopped saison. Taste follows, a little lemon - plenty of hops, quite grassy. Decent body, a little astringent, finishes quick but leaves a pleasant tart odd-grain aftertaste. I will get this one again.

Classique is very interesting sleeper of a beer. There is a touch of lager character that had the effect of lowering my expectations but the full dreaded twang failed to materialize. Instead, many appealing flavors and complexity emerged, facilitated by quite an exceptional balance.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy pale yellow with a giant white head that sticks around for ever. So fizzy it looks like the bubbles are constantly refueling the head. Aromas are very Belgian yeast with earthy and fruity notes, but with some odd cheap lager too. Flavor is fairly similar, but with stronger earthy flavors and less of that cheap lager smell. Here there is a touch of bitter hops as well. Very interesting beer, I don’t like RB’s ’Specialty Grain’ category but beats me where you’d put it instead. Saison? I’d love to try the brett version of this.
