reebtogi (6205) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 16, 2012
330ml bottle at 5%ABV pours a pale golden color with a 2 finger white head that retains well and leaves a thin lacing on the glass. Aroma is cereal grains and grassy hops. Taste is grainy with a grassy hop bitterness. Flavors are more complex than I can describe and this is a much better brew than I expected. Well done.

Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 31, 2004
Bottle-conditioned Hazy golden hue with a superb white head, huge and rocky. Apparently very high carbonation. Aroma is more expressive than I anticipated, there’s a gentle spicy (oregano, sage) and lightly floral hoppiness that accompanies the grainy malt aspect. Lemony, toasty, herbal, it could be a pilsner mixed with a spicy bière de garde. Palate is lightly crisp with high carbonation, very herbal/grassy with a pilsner-like dry bitterness in the finish. Moderate traces of buttery diacetyl. It’s not too good, but surpasses expectations.

dwyerpg (6014) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - AUG 1, 2011
A light spicy pils aroma. First sign of hops from these guys. A light floral hop that makes it pretty tasty. Very smooth.

erickok (5932) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUN 12, 2011
Hazy light orange, medium white head. Feta cheese, citrus fruit, wheat and a metalic dryness. Light body wi a citrussy sweetness and some banana. Very light spices in the aftertaste. Reminds me of the bite of a mild hefeweizen. Decent and (too?) accessible. (33cl bottle)

jaghana (5924) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - NOV 22, 2011
Bottle 33cl, a clear yellow beer with low head. Nose is on dry malt and bottom yeast like. Aroma is on dry malt, peppery hops and vegetable notes, body is malty and dusty hops, near to german Helles style.

SilkTork (5711) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - OCT 24, 2006
Bottle from Leclerk, Valreas. A pale ale with the clean lines of a lager - beefed up with the yeast in the bottle. This Blonde or Biere de Garde comes over as a flavoursome lager of considerable character and drinkability. Very pleasant. Lager hops lingering in the finish. Malt is clean and very largerish, though with hints of fruit, corriander and funegreek. Most of the flavour and character comes from the hop and the yeast. Low, natural and soft carbonation. A very enjoyable beer.

RichardGretton (4739) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2004
Cloudy wheat biere like appearance with a frothy long life head. A fairly thick aroma with a slight Belgian blonde feel, and a flavour that is a mixture of a wheat beer and Belgian blonde biere. Overall a really good French biere.
