Rastacouere (6176) - 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.

Lubiere (14131) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 20, 2005
Hazy blonde with a thick collapsing white head. Sweet light malt with a light orangey note. In mouth, good bready malt with a touch of pleasant cirus acidity and fruitiness and nice crisp hops in finish. Medium bodied. Bought in May 2004. Man, I’m surprised its still good!

TBone (18105) - Pori, FINLAND - JAN 6, 2008
Bottled
Hazy orange color, decent creamy white head. Nose is kind of papery, oat-like. Flavor has light sweet edge in the beginning. beer is grassy and bitterish. Interesting French beer, not really typical biere de garde, more like a Belgian blonde.

AshtonMcCobb (6871) - 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.

reebtogi (6350) - 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.

3.3
Quack-Duck (9490) - 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.

thewolf (12756) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUL 11, 2013
Bottle, bought @ Intermarche, Lannion. Pours hazy pale yellow with a small, rather fizzy, small, white head. Aroma has crisp malts, apples. Medium carbonation, fine dryish and light grainy mouthfeel. Flavour has light wheat, oranges, grapefruit, crisp malts, light mineral. Good fruity hoppiness.

3.3
ChtiBreizh (456) - Rennes, FRANCE - APR 17, 2015
A good pale ale with refreshing citrus notes (a bit like a belgian white). Well balanced. Surprisingly good compared to other blondes from Brittany.
