COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Née en 1919, la recette de la Géante est relancée et mise au goût du jour par la brasserie Grain d’Orge. Il s’agit d’une bière douce très légèrement amère mêlant des houblons des Flandres, du malt d’orge de printemps et du blé de Beauce brassés dans une eau naturellement riche en oligo-éléments. Elle titre 7,4 ° d’alcool, est vendue en bouteille verre 1 litre avec marquage incrusté et bouchon mécanique en céramique. En hommage à l’histoire de la brasserie, la Géante porte sur le col le nom des fondateurs de la Brasserie Grain d’orge en 1898 : Desruelle-Theetten

Légèrement cuivrée, bonne mousse. Nez malt toasté, leger caramel et noisettes. Gout malté, leger fruité et noisettes, note levures avec metal et vielle pomme en fin de bouche. Corps assez aqueux pour ce degré d’alcool. Fin astringente. Décevante.

Goud, prima schuim. Heel zoet, verder niet zo heel veel karakter. Prima, niks speciaals

ForlornHope (488) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2015
75 cl bottle at home. Pouring it gradually into a pint glass and sipping. It’s a blonde! Sparkling clear, though, with a nice pillowy white head. I detect a nice floral aroma with a cereal background. Taste is on the sweet side with a gentle bitterness. Good carbonation makes it lively on the tongue and drinkable despite the strength. Long, dry finish with tastes of grain. There ia also a floury, starchy taste in there which is the only minus with this beer. This had been in the car all day, had an hour in the fridge, and then opened. I like it - a good, straightforward beer.

Bottle. Pours with a large fluffy white head, aroma is fruity with a hint of orange, the taste is bitter with fruit, which leads to a dry fruity finish.
