Bouteille 75 cl. Liquide orange clair limpide, mousse honorable. Nez : bien houblonné, pain, biscuit, citron, levures. Bouche : fraîche, sur le malt, le citron, le pain. Belle effervescence et moyenne amertume. Une bière de soif ! :-)

joe19612 (2929) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2017
Bottle. Pours a light gold colour with a fluffy white head, lots of carbonation, the aroma is hoppy with plenty of lemon, the taste is medium bitterness and with the finish being sweet.

thepatrickman (1358) - Jevington, East Sussex, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2017
Bottle in the Dordogne. Spritzy and effervescent, with a good amount of yeasty spiciness. It reminds me of a Belgian saison, with a moderate bubblegum ester aroma and a cereal and pepper yeast profile that reminded me of a lot of traditional saisons. Light malt sweetness, much less than your average biere de garde. Nice, refreshing blond with a clear Belgian influence.

gopherfan99 (1831) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 17, 2017
Bottle; pours cloudy amber with a thin off white head; sweet malt aroma with some fruit and floral notes; taste is sweet malt with some honey, fruit, and floral hints; finish is semi dry with some lingering sweet malt

BMan1113VR (7931) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 14, 2017
Can with a best before of February 21, 2018. Almost definitely the same beer as the slightly higher ABV Blonde BdG already listed. Pours with a clear, full yellow hued body with a medium size ivory head that lasts. Aromas are of cereal, spicy notes, hoppy, earthy, grassy, slightly musty, very lightly estery. Flavors are dry, with slight hint of pomme fruit esters, medium-light bitter, toasty, grainy, cereal, lightly musty. Somewhat hop forward (spicy, light citrus) for what I was expecting, lightly musty. Very slight isoamyl acetate in the finish. Lively carbonation, dry and slightly warming. Overall, a bit boring, a bit hoppy, crisp and easy to drink. Similar to a fresh Belgian Blonde, but with a bit more toasted malt notes and much more restrained esters.

DraftDodger (1532) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 12, 2017
Provence 12/5 2017. 75 cl bottle shared with friends. Pours clear yellow with dense white head. Settles as thin layer of foam. Moderate lacing. Aroma is sweetish. Orange, banana and earthy yeasty odoeur. Light carbonation and medium thick palate. Flavor is medium sweet followed by light bitterness. Aftertaste is well balanced between sweetness and bitterness. A fine French Blonde heavily inspired by their Belgian Cousins.

stupre (373) - Nanterre, FRANCE - APR 2, 2017
25cl bottle purchased @ Carrefour. Bonne bière du Nord avec un peu trop de levure.
