Amber and bright. The aroma is crackery-caramelly. Toasty and lightly fruity. A straightforward brew with English ale yeast accents. Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 3, 2012
Draft at brewpub. Golden, slight haze. Aroma of toasty malts, and not detecting gooseberry. Have to search for it. Similarly, the gooseberry is too subtle in the flavors and comes across as random white flesh fruit. For such a distinct flavor, i want more of it. But it is a nice easy light beer.

Une robe dorée et limpide. Une tête plus ou moins solide qui laisse quelques traces. Un nez de céréales mielleuses et de grains. Une présence feutrée des houblons. Une touche fruitée qui est le résultat de l’ajout des groseilles. Des saveurs de malt pâle (quelque chose qui rappelle la pils) et de grains. Une touche acidulée qui chatouille les papilles. Une bouche de moyenne intensité avec un pétillement modéré et une texture crémeuse. Une finale qui permet une certaine amertume. Facile à boire. punkska101 (2029) - Chambly, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 7, 2011
Clear golden soft carbonation minimal white head. A: herbacy, cereal. F: thin body finish is bitter and medium long. O: clean and crisp pretty refreshing. MartinT (9880) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 31, 2010
My Bottom Line:
jredmond (8283) - New York, New York, USA - FEB 6, 2010
This Golden Ale’s balance of citrusy hops and honeyed, biscuity malts wisely moves into levelled wooden hop bitterness, creating a hugely drinkable pint.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A thick sheet of foam laces atop the misty golden.
-The mouthfeel is almost as crisp as that of a Pilsener’s. Almost.
-The bitter finish is rather lenient; just enough hop presence to balance everything out, and just enough restraint to avoid scaring away the masses.
-This is the kind of brewpub Golden Ale that all brewpubs should have. It offers all that a neophyte can like in a Blond Ale while displaying the prowess and savoir-faire that a quality brewer possesses. Obviously, this type of beer will not score well on Ratebeer, which is a shame.

Visited Bedondaine et Bedons Ronds during BeerQuest 2010. A decent palate warmer... a basic blonde with a mellow plum taste. TonyDiUlio (664) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 7, 2010
Tasted this beer while on Beer Quest 2010 with the guys. This was beer number 55. The pour was very light and clear. Little head. Aroma was a little malty and slightly skunked. Flavor however was smooth, light, and easy to drink. Weak on the palate. Pwn3d (1962) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JAN 6, 2010

Slight cloudy amber-orange hue, with a small white head, yeasty, fruity nose of peaches, pineapples, white currants, with a faint honeyed pale malt, cereal note, and a hint citruzy zestiness in the aroma follows through on a medium-light bodied palate with a yeasty, fruity acidic white currant, peachy, wheaty, pale malt spicy character, with some mild flowery hop citrusy leafy accents, leading towards a fruity, acidic, lingering dry hoppy finish.

On tap at brewpub. 5oz taster. Clear yellow with small head. Nose is quite discrete with hints of banana. Taste is light hops all along. A bit citrusy. Avereage beer but really refreshing and enjoyable.
