zacgillbanks (5535) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2017
Bottle from Terre De Boissons, Centre Commercial Cite Europe, Calais, France. Cloudy golden coloured with a thick white head. It has a sweet fruity and peppery hop flavour followed by biscuit and more fruity peppery hops on the sweet finish. Good.

TAR (2794) - Blue Ridge Mountains, North Carolina, USA - OCT 8, 2016
33cl bottle purchased at Racines in Cassel, France and consumed in Aug. 2014, best by Apr. 2016. Paler shade of golden. Towering crown of pasty meringue adorns the glass. Potent and pure hop bouquet of lilac, lemon balm, aniseed, and nectar, with underlying new-mown hay, airy phenols and fresh cut melon. Boisterously hoppy and floral, with an herbal coarseness contrasting with vibrant lilac. Lemony twang mirrors the gracefully unfolding hop acids. Beneath the hoppy richness is an ever so soft and clean base of slender pils malt which evokes thoughts of hay dust and fresh baguette. Meticulously extracted hops retain all the oily luster and sassy bitterness of "wet" hops, and there is a perfect measure of "greenness" for added intensity, yet there is scarcely a smidgeon of resin. The toasty grip of pils malt coupled with a phenolic lash lifts the hop oils to reveal a finer, zestier bitterness. Powerfully hoppy finish is lined with lemon zest, coarse herbs, pepper and fresh cut grass, sealed by a well-textured, crackery malt embrace. This is as clean as it gets, and the high bittering levels keep you begging for large gulp after large gulp. Just a gorgeous hopcentric golden ale that blurs biere de garde-saison stylistically, from the countryside of northern France.

adamnowek (3399) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 7, 2016
Only slightly opaque appearance with a gorgeous golden colour and a nice bubbly head. Really carbonated and visibly so. Fruity and hoppy aroma. The carbonation looks nice but it detracts from the texture, limiting the taste. Dry, floral finish.

sir__v (2630) - FRANCE - JAN 30, 2016
Bottle from Cash Flandres Artois, Auchy - FR. Color: pours golden blond beer with no carbonation and medium white foam. Smell: brett, brett, brett. Dishwashing liquid. Small hoppy finish. Taste: TOTALLY INFECTED! Brett and acidity. Very disappointed. It’s totally forbidden to sell something like this!

Maakun (6543) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 27, 2016
Bottle shared with friends. Slight hazy with some small particles floating around and some visible carbonation. Big fluffy white head. Fruity hops up front with some lime and pineapple, light hay, sweet malts, oats, fresh cardboard, bitter herbs, light soap, chalk. Under medium sweet and bitter. Medium bodied with a bit creamy feel. Nice stuff.

corkyrory66 (2274) - BELGIUM - DEC 8, 2015
Blonde houblonnée de 6 % abv, non filtrée, non pasteurisée, refermentée.
Couleur blond moyen brillant, à la clarté nette.
Bulles fines, partout, moyennement vives.
Mousse blanche, à flocons moyens, stable à 2 mm.
Arômes de malt clair, houblon vert, pain gris, baies blanches, pointe de sureau.
1ère bouche souple sur malt, houblon, zeste d’agrumes, pointe de piment d’Espelette.
Arrière-bouche équilibrée, à l’amertume bien marquée et riche.
2ème au grand ensemble malt/houblon, avec une dominante houblonnée.
Arrière-bouche avec beaucoup de caractère.
3ème au grand équilibre avec du tabac blond.
Arrière-bouche longue et complexe.
Longueur qui fait un beau travail sur le houblon, grande amertume.
Jambes fines, groupées, marquées.
Levure douce, un peu fleurie, un peu épicée, très belle ligne.
Alcool très décidé, il soutient le tout sur la longueur.
Finale avec du fruité et du bois blanc. Superbe.
CONCLUSION : une bière qui n’est pas du tout une bière de garde, comme indiqué sur ratebeer,
mais une excellente blonde houblonnée tendant vers l’ipa. Avec une vraie amertume de caractère,
un superbe équilibre et une belle évolution sur la longueur jusqu’en finale.

caesar (7332) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - SEP 15, 2015
Bottle brought by a friend, medium sample. Slight hazy golden color, some stuff floating around, medium rocky head. Aroma of cow shit, farm, hay, grainy, slight grassy hop, salty and minerally. Slight bitter in taste, funky, bit salty. Clearly infected by some Brett. This is probably the beer that smelled like cow shit the most. Now I see what some winemakers are talking about when they prefer not to have Brett in their wine.
