Had this at Disney World of all places. Not your average blonde with malt and caramel notes, a slightly less sweet, but arguably more delicious blonde beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From old tasting notes. Deep brassy gold color. Large bubbly white head. Light malt aroma. Wonderfully flavorful toasted sweet malt has fruity notes. Hints of grapes and honeydew melon. Bittersweet hop finish. Very good.

33 cl bottle - Pours golden with a two finger white head. It has a light aroma of bready malt with fruit undertones. The flavor is sweet and fruity with a light but not watery body. It’s a pleasant and enjoyable session brew.

scarletfire65 (1423) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 15, 2012
Bottled Jan. 23 2009. Crystal clear deep golden, almost no head. The nose is very floral, green grapes, chardonnay, peaches. Light to medium bodied, nice sweet malt base, lots of apple cider and pear flavors, musty and earthy, and a grassy and slightly dry finish that tastes of dusty hops. Nicely balanced, nicely aged, very sophisticated.

reebtogi (6143) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 16, 2012
750ml corked bottle pours blonde in color with a huge white head that retains well and leaves some thin lacing on the glass. Aroma is light malts with some fruits, yeast and light hops. Taste is fruity with a light malt sweetness and mild hop bitterness with some yeast. Very spritzy carbonation and modest body provides and nice sensation on the palate. A very appealing brew that is highly recommended.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2014 Haven’t had many French beers... This one was great! I thought it was a nice balanced example of the style; not overbearing in any aspect. I’ll be buying more of this one.

Davhgbrew (948) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 6, 2014
Dark golden appearance. Aroma of the winner’s circle in Amesbury. ..basically a dingey sports bar that had pool tables in the basement. Sips medium bodied with moderate liveliness, slightly champagne like palate. Yeasty, bready, and leaning towards malt driven flavors. Finish is moderately dry and crisp showing off the refreshing qualities. Nice brew, prob really good with cheese and light fish.

Jabic (502) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - JAN 24, 2017
Ar: Grass and pils malt, a touch of oxidation (lightly papery); hay and grass notes, with herbal hop aroma; a touch of lager-like sulfur. Ap: Straw-gold and crystal clear; medium-large white head with good retention, leaves a ring of foam with a thin, patchy covering on the top. T: Lightly sweet pils malt up front; clean, firm maltiness; very few esters, just a hint of apple, peach, and bitter orange; low bitterness, with herbal, noble hop notes; clean, warming alcohol taste toward the finish; a fair bit of musty oxidation. P: Medium-light body with medium-high carbonation; finish is dry. O: Classic blond biere de garde; pronounced malt character and low esters, with a nice mix of hay and grass, providing a bit of a rustic edge; nice hoppiness as well, with a spot-on appearance and mouthfeel.
