Bouteille de 33 cl. Bière blonde à la robe légèrement cuivrée et au col mince persistant. Au nez, houblons aromatiques surets qui piquent les narines, malt grillé. En bouche, rondeur du malt légère, peu d’ester malgré le taux d’alcool. Le palais est sec. Malts pâles finissant sur des notes rêches. En fin l’amertume est légère mais s’épanouit sur des notes terreuses. Très bel équilibre pour un bière faite avec l’orge de la ferme Belle Dalle. Facile à boire mais complexe par les saveurs salées, doucement épicées qu’elle développe sur une longueur sèche ( Saaz?) CapFlu (5127) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 28, 2005
(750ml bottle) Sampled at Goldorak’s Sunday MTL Gathering. Good god - what am I drinking - Cheese??? Pours a white, lasting head with a cloudy, sediment-filles head and a orange-gold body. Nose is elusive - somewhat hemp, perfume and yeasty. Peppery flavour, grassy and tart. Lemon, yeasty finish. Very good. GonZoBeeR (3061) - ste-catherine, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 27, 2005

Pours light hazy golden with a big, frothy, white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, floral, rather crisp and delicious. Medium carbonation, lovely creamy palate. Flavour is sweet, malty crisp, light pepper-spicy, lovely grassy bitterness. Mild vinious. Elegant beer.
Interesting concept I found in a cheeze shop in Clermont-Ferrand, France. A Beer specifically crafted to pair off with cheese. Why not?

Golden Orange, with a pearly white head with gorgeous honey-comb bubbles that were perfectly aligned one next to the other. I like that I lot, it taps into my cathesian side...
Loaves of bread and orange juice, with just a hint of holiday spices.
Wheaty and fruity, the citrus aftertaste reminded me of mandarin oranges in light syrup. Quite a refreshing wit and well done from yet another French brewer I’ve never heard of before.
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2011 Bottle from La Fromagerie, Marlebone Village. Pours slightly hazy orange with a huge foaming head. Nose is a beautiful deep buttery toffee malt aroma. Like buttered popcorn, but deeper and more roasted. Also some cereal and freshly baked biscuit in there. Taste is crisp buttery malt and subtle grassy hop bitterness. Would go great with a gooey french cheese. (not sure why this is down as a whitbier. If you ask me it’s abbey tripel) Leighton (21296) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2011
Bottle at Nate’s Massive Kernel Birthday Piss-Up. Pours a lightly cloudy gold with a white head. Malty aroma. Very sweet flavor, lots of malt. Notes of caramel, sugar, doughy bread. Medium to full bodied with average carbonation. Lightly warming finish, more sugar, bread, honey and caramel. Very sweet but fun stuff. Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 27, 2005
Cloudy gold, raising a nice 1cm foamy keeper proposing light and elegant lacing. Slightly tart, soft orange and zesty citrus nose, softly spicy yeastiness pairing along weirder grassy influenced vinegar eggs and ice cream reminding flavors. Natural wheatiness making it akin to cereals. Pepper and curacao oriented yeast hints while hops add a spiciness of their own, lemony. Grainy, desserty and with a cheesestick fit that sets it apart. Effervescent big bubbled light-medium body. Most interesting. One of those event-worthy never heard of, could be gimmicky, beers that can’t but give you absolutely 0 expectation, but come up as far above average and confirms you’re in the right business as a beer seeker.

Enjoyed with a nice French goat cheese. Initially pours with a creamy head, some chill haze in the yellow body. Retention is good. Taste is slightly sweet with a bit of coriander, melons and grapes. I had know idea this was a witbier, it tastes like a much darker beer than it appears. Very rich with alcohol and yeast. A bit dry in the mouth. The beer is a nice complement to the cheese. Towards the end of the bottle the pour becomes much cloudier with the yeast. Sent in a picture. fiulijn (20516) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 7, 2008
Hazy blond color, with a thich foam and a persistent perlage. It has a light but original aroma, perfumy, of dry grass (not as strong as hay), old times soap, sweet cereals. It has a good mouthfeel, good body structure, with sweetish lean malt flavor, and a light fruity freeshness and a minimal yeast character. So far, so good, but if only it had more bitterness and some aromatic hop too, it would be very good. One interesting French beer.
