Bottle picked up at the Britt Brewery and Brasserie, consumed at Camping Dolmen, Carnac, Brittany, France, Tuesday 13th June 2017 Pours gold with a white head. A little bit of summer fruits on the nose, fruity in the mouth but a touch sweet also. It’s a nice easy drinking blonde nothing exciting but perfectly acceptable.

Medium gold with a slight orange tint. Nice, fine head. Cloudy. Fresh, fruity aroma of yeast and malt mainly. Much like a Belgian blonde. Lots of yeast. A fruity blond beer with darn good hopping. Flavor is a touch sweet, fruity with a bit of citrus, and some spice. Finish of malt and hops, lasting fairly long. Not very original, but a well-balanced, well-hopped blonde ale. I like it a lot.

Slightly astringent and chalky yeast bows to tempestuous dry hay...Sweet malt vows to elevate the powdery herbs to the creamy and ample mouthfeel...A refreshing and eclectic blonde, probably brewed with a few different grains than barley... Quack-Duck (9484) - Down South, GERMANY - DEC 21, 2012
bottle from savuer-biere. Brewed with buckwheat. Slightly hazy golden yellow, large white head. Spicy and nice perfumy hop aroma. Medium-bodied, grainy malt flavours, perfumy floral hop notes with a resiny-fruity touch. jmgreenuk (9449) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - AUG 31, 2016
Bottle from somewhere in France. Poured a clear light amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is grainy malt mineral, light hop. The flavour is moderate sweet, light bitter with a smooth, sweet malt, light floral hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation.

This is much more like it. Sweet, slightly woody, pineapple-fruity nose. There’s some hops there, too.Completely unlike any ’Biere de Garde’ I’ve tasted to date. Bright hazy yellow pour with a frothy-headed spritziness. Appetisingly spicy, with a sprinkle of something I can’t quite place. But it’s distinctively Belgian and probably coriander- used sparingly. Exceptionally lacy and creamily full-bodied for the style and ABV. The same subtly smoky afters as the Gwiniz Du. A hell of a lot going on for a 5 percenter. An attractively bitter dryness in the finish. A quenchingly spicy, well-balanced Blonde easily surpassing some of its more esteemed French and Flemish cousins. ogivlado (7810) - Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 24, 2015
Bottled 330ml. -from E.Leclerc Ljubljana as Britt Blonde Melen. Hazy yellow coloured, medium sized white head, mild spicy nose. Malty, caramel, spicy, coriander as well and sugar with rather short and slightly watery finish. Drinkable but nothing special here. BlackHaddock (7329) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2012
2nd Nov 2010: Brown 33cl bottle, poured into a ’Hoegaarden Grand Cru’ stemmed tulip. This beer was formally 5%ABV, mine was 6%ABV.
A slight haze in the body gives it a dark golden hue, on top a white bubbley head.
Citrus fruits dominate the nose, really sour aroma, more than a hoppy citrus smell, this is lemon, lime and grapefruit all blended together.
The taste is also citrusy, leaning towards a vinegarous feel. It was at this point I noticed it’s best before date was 27 Aug 2010, which means it was reviewed over two months after that. Hope the beer wasn’t on the turn as I wrote the review. Also ’miffed’ I paid full price for it (yesterday).
Different and an OK beer, France has some good stuff, I’ll carry on trying to find the best ones and review them on here! caesar (7133) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 22, 2007
Hazy golden color, medium frothy white head. Aroma is slight cheesy, bit spicy, some grassy hop. Dry spicy taste, crisp, bit bitter. Dry palate. Nice biere de garde. AshtonMcCobb (6604) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 13, 2011
33cl bottle. Pours a hazy lemon colour with some head and very gentle bubble. The nose has lemon sorbet and yoghurt. The taste has more lemon with a background malt note, then yeast with some hops at the end. The palate has medium structure, a creamy texture and a fairly clean finish. Overall, a like this style a lot and it’s a fairly good example.
