2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden-yellow in colour, thin white coloured head ring around the glass, some patchy lacing. The aroma is wheaty, cereal, pale malts, bready, light alcohol, oats. The flavour is quite sweet and sugary, quite a bit of noticable alcohol, crackers and bread, pale malts, light pepper. Sweet mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation. Finishes long, sweet, moderate alcohol warmth. This really didn’t do anything for me, the only beer from them that I really didn’t understand.

Draught oversized-tulip at the brewpub on 1/28/07
Lightly sand-specked white head is large and endearing, showing strong retention, though only light lacing. Deep copper body sports light amber hues and plentiful carbonation. The beer is mostly clear.
Fruity esters are entwined with alcohol heat (moderate) and all sorts of grains. I find a rye-like spiciness wins out, but there are certainly some crusty/crackery-like notes as well as some dry, dusty and biscuity-like notes. The fruitiness seems peachy at first but with warming, seems to soften and deepen in to almost a raspberry or strawberry-like note. Vanilla, light pale malt creaminess and some honey-dough, meanwhile, are at the heart of the beer and the complexities of the many grains emanate from them. Clean, fresh yeast apparent on the end. Medium to medium-high strength of aroma.
Seeming like a strong Belgian ambrée in the flavor, plenty of dough plops itself on the palate, while a toffee and light caramel sweetness intensifies. Fortunately, strong, spice-like grains, alcohol warmth and somewhat sharp esters all help to clear it, with the aid of a strong carbonation. It seems to almsost overcompensate for the sweetness up front and dries out heavily, leaving some exposed grainy malts to scratch at the palate (in concert with the alcohol and spicy rye). But as it breathes and the carbonation softens, it really finds a happy medium, with indescribably pleasant complexities to be found with each sip; the nuances of all the grains in concert with this clean, fluffy Belgian yeastiness. Some dough and toffee-like stickiness sits on the finish with some marmalade and zesty alcohol notes and moderate acidity tingling on the back of the throat.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a slightly cloudy orangey yellow color with a ring of white lace on top. Good aroma of cereals with a spicy and cheesy lactic feeling. The flavor seems to come straight from a farmer’s field, cereals and hay with again the cheesy lactic feeling and a bitter finish. The body is medium with a creamy texture and moderate carbonation. Well-done and pleasant.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear pale rather pissy yellow, bright and shining, quickly losing its head, the first time I encounter such a phenomenon for Bedondaine. In the nose, a highly cohesive mellow symphony of cereals. Buckwheat and oats come out with particularly pleasant peaks, rendering a good backing rich feel. Well focused on the cereals, the sweetness level seems perfectly integrated, thanks to a backing acidity. Spicy palate, with a sharp, refreshing growing wheat character that reminds of crisps and crackers. Apple and fresh fruits notes add a touch of complexity. This could make a marvellous breakfast ale, very smooth bodied with pointy and efficient carbonation.

Golden coloured ale with a thin white head. Nice organic aroma of grains, caramel and grist. Wonderful! In mouth, a crisp malt with notes of rye and sarazin pancakes. Medium bodied. On tap at Bieres et Saveurs, Sept. 2, 2006.

Sampled at Festival Bières et Saveurs, slight hazy yellow gold hue, with a frothy white head, sweet grainy cereals nose, with a fruity note of ripe apples, faint floral hops, hint of bready dough, pale malt aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a smooth graininess character, hint of spicy black pepper, with a fruity accent, sweet pale malt, leading towards a floral hops bittering finish.
