In my top 5! A golden yellow, with a full flavour of fruit, wheat, and herbs.

White head on a gold yellow body. I tried it on a hot summer day and I was very pleased. This is a very refreshing brew and I only regret this beer is not exported to Denmark where I live. Altogether, I am ready to drink it again any time. Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 4, 2004
This was such a neat beer to be able to try. I sampled this on the back of a bus traveling from Fontainbleau, France to Dijon, France. I bought the beer at a small wine shop in central Fontainbleau and even got a free glass with the brew. Courpalay, where the beer is brewed, is a small village Northeast of Fontainbleau.
Nice nose with hints of lemon, wheat grass, hay, flowers, tangerines and various herbs.
Lovely, splendid fruit flavors, especially tangerine and pear. Finish has a hint of honey dew, mixed nuts and a lingering, yeasty and fruity deliciousness. erickok (6037) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAR 29, 2014
Very yeasty, light funky, light brown bread, grassy hops. Very classic Belgian, but certain got character. This won’t appeal to everyone. Quite full tasting for the abv, but not in the modern way. Lasting classic bitterness. An almost historic beer. (75cl bottle from Beer City) DeanF (2514) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 31, 2010
One thing about beer hunting in France is that every farm, every town, has its own brew that almost no one’s ever heard of outside of that tiny little spot. Many of these are brewed in incredibly small batches, and you never know when you’ll find them again. Found this at a farm outside of Paris, at their shop, in a 750ml bottle. Nice blonde colour, excellent head on top. Hops, hay, some malts on the nose. Taste is a mix of grass, malt, caramel, alcohol. Actually a good mix of bière de garde tastes, quite strong and a very good example of the style.

Bottle. Lot 611? BB4 AUg 2008. Thick porous head. Soft honey flavour. Soft funk. Touch of banana. Picks up in middle. Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - MAY 12, 2010
750 ml corked bottle. A hazy dark golden beer with an average sized, frothy, modtly, almost full diminishing white head. The aroma is lightly to moderately malty, lightly to moderately hoppy, lightly yeasty with notes of toasted grains, flowers, herbs, lemon, honey. The flavour is moderately sweet, lightlly sour, lightly bitter. Medium body, lively to fizzy carbonation, long finish with medium bitterness. Very interesting aroma, although, not very strong, too carbonated and one dimensional in the mouth, but overall nice. RichardGretton (4770) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2012
Bottle. Cloudy golden beer with a strongish head. The aroma is fruity and mildly spiced, and the flavour has a touch of vinous'ness with mild bitterness and spice. Overall a nice Belgian style blonde beer.
