bhensonb (14611) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 11, 2009
Bottle, c&c, from Ledger’s. Pours golden amber with a large frothy white head. Aromas of light stone fruit and yeast. Medium body with frothy, biting carbonation. Flavor is lighter fruit, a touch of malt sweetness, with some astringency. There is some earthiness, but it is very well covered. So it’s more ale than biere de garde. Leaving that issue it’s a very tasty and drinkable beer. It’s far from sweet, and the bitter is not strong. It’s just pleasant.

probstblueribbon (3790) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 10, 2009
50 cl can from France (merci Papa!), served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. JL 24/09.

App.: Clear, deep golden with a large white meringue. Aroma: Kinda dirty, ashy, earthy, corn, coriander(?), grain/cereal, vague fruitiness, a bit like a European Strong Lager or malt liquor, not very pleasant. Palate: Medium body, almost flat. Flav.: Fruity – apples, peaches, pears; still a bit dirty, corn/grain/cereal; a bit cloying, no bitterness, still not very pleasant.

Non, merci!

Bottle. I am really amazed that I have not rated this beer earlier. A good and beloved old fried. Bottle. High creamy white head leaving nice lacings. Clear yellow body. Mild sweet fruity aroma. Flavor mild sweet smootj with low carbonation and a long sweet aftertaste. Not world class but still quite good.

Narnad (1521) - Crystal Lake, Illinois, USA - JUN 28, 2009
Found this beer on clearance for a few bucks at a local grocery store. Pours a clear golden color with a thick white head that leaves a great lacing. Aroma has a noble hops (Saaz) note to it, lots of pilsner malt notes and light yeasty tones come out as well. Flavor starts off with a light grassy and floral flavor, moving into a light spicy Saaz flavor moves into a pretty prevalent pale malt note with some light Vienna characteristics and ends with a slightly sour fruity note. Carbonation is pretty high and density has a medium mouth feel. Overall a pretty example for the style but there was a slight skunky note to it but otherwise was pretty good.

UPDATED: JUN 14, 2009 Bottle. Sweet malty thing with a belgian yeast touch. Like a better version of Leffe Blond.
