Très régional, son nom rappelle la coutume du « vivat flamand » où l’on honore l’hôte ou les mariés à la fin d’un banquet en reprenant un air connu de tous les Ch’timis.

A golden blond Ale brewed from a unique fermentation process in open tanks, using century old technics. Skimmed manually, Vivat Blond is a pure malt “Bière de Garde” which recalls the natural flavours of beer. Its freshness and its slight bitterness at the finish even charm beer novices.

mile (3914) - Helsinki, - FEB 1, 2013
Bottle. Golden, small to average and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty - lightly wheaty and sweetish aroma, some caramel and light fruitiness, faint hoppyness. Body is medium, malty - lightly wheaty and sweetish flavor, some caramel and some fruitines, faint alcohol. Finish is average, malty - lightly wheaty and lightly sweetish, some caramel and some fruitiness, faint hoppyness and light alcohol. Quite typical sweetish French ale - lacks character.

Bottle. Pours hazy straw with airy white head. Clear aroma of malt and fruit, with notes of flowers and touches of hops. Sweetish flavour of fruit and malt, with estery and hoppy notes and flowery touches. Bitter aftertaste with some acidic touches. Reasonable.

mice (910) - FINLAND - AUG 10, 2016
Varsin kirkkaan kullankeltainen olut kohtalaisen pienellä, mutta tiiviillä hieman pitsiä jättävällä vaahdolla. Tuoksu Bellerosea aavistuksen voimakkaampi, viljainen ja hiivainen. Maku ruohoinen ja viljainen sekä aavistuksen sitruksinen. Keskitäyteläinen suutuntuma, kuiva ja katkerakin loppumaultaan, mutta viimeisenä tuntemuksena suuhun jää kuitenkin pieni vetisyys. Asteen verran Bellerosea parempi, mutta ei juuri muuta.

Bitek (617) - Warszawa, POLAND - JUL 9, 2016
UPDATED: APR 21, 2017 Fenolowe, owocowe, lekko zbożowe. Ciało średnie. Dość wytrawne, cierpkie, goryczka niska. Wysycenie potężne.

kamwitsta (553) - POLAND - JAN 27, 2016
Aroma: overripe fruits, some vinegar, a bit of pickles. Appearance: brownish orange; hazy; head more than enormous, extremely stable. Taste: mildly sweet, a little sour; the whole a little blunt. Palate: body between light and medium; carbonation soft, at least once the head’s settled; finish mildly bitter; mouth feel moderately spicy. Overall: If they could improve the aroma and dilute it less, it could make really nice, easy summer drinking. Now it isn’t bad but not so great either. Also, it feels almost like a mix of beer with wine.

glacier (263) - Warszawa, POLAND - NOV 15, 2015
Bière de Garde Blonde. Piana wielka, intensywna, ale szybko znika. Kolor pszeniczny. Bardzo duże nasycenie. Piwo o świeżym, słodowym, lekko owocowym, kwaskowym i ziemistym aromacie. W smaku bardzo podobne odczucia. Plus pszeniczny posmak.

Agréable, rafraîchissante et légèrement fruitée. Manque de caractère, assez quelconque au final.
