A light spicy pils aroma. First sign of hops from these guys. A light floral hop that makes it pretty tasty. Very smooth. DruncanVeasey (8456) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2007
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.

cloudy golden-blond colour, nice head, spicy (nutmeg?) and yeasty with notes of orange, smooth and tart, slightly acid, dry fruity finish - fresh and very pleasant SilkTork (5926) - 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.

Yeasty and fruity aroma, notes of oranges. Creamy head, hazy orange color. Fresh taste, big grainy and malty. Yeasty, light sourly and fruity (oranges). Dry, hoppy and medium bitter finish.
Bottled. Cloudy golden coloured, thin lacing. Hoppy aroma. Pretty nice Biere de Garde style beer. Thanks to my friend (Roel) for bringing it from France. Nagash (207) - Paris, FRANCE - AUG 11, 2005
Fruity taste, sugar, honey and lemon, alcohol quite sweet, some bitterness, surprising and very good.
