Sainte Hélène Barley Wine
Not particular good for a barley wine. It does its job as a decent beer. But not overly impressed.

Sainte Hélène Simcoe Lager
Bottle at a birthday party. Pours golden, lots of fizz. Green / tropical hop nose. Limes, zest. Well balanced in taste, very thin bodied. But a pleasant suprise of aroma for a low alcohol beer. A good choice after a heavy night.

Sainte Hélène Barley Wine
very hazy orange-ish brown colour, no head at all; aroma of herbal medicine notes, caramel biscuit, some floral honey and maybe some vanilla and oak barrel notes; taste of herbal medicine, syrupy sweetness, maybe some minimal vanilla; practically no carbonation at all; among the worst barley wines, I’ve ever tasted...

Acheter à tabac&co palais des bières dans famiflora à dottignies. Bouteille de 33 cl. Couleur bronze / cuivre . Peu de mousse , petit col assez léger. Au nez : c’est florale , miel de fleur ? Un peu de sucré note fine. En bouche : sensation de sucre, de miel aussi très floral , assez tout . Puissance d’une triple quelque note de trace d’alcool. L acacias est subtilement présent. Fin de bouche moelleux contrairement aux autres triple. Pas d’équivalent !

Sainte Hélène La Grognarde
Acheter à dranken geers à oost staker ( gent ). Bouteille de 33 cl. Couleur blonde dorée ! Mousse abondante vite redescendu, col de mousse inexistante presque ! Au nez c’est très aromatique, houblonné et fruité, un peu de nature au nez également à voir en bouche. En bouche plein de saveur , note de pin et de fruit en coque (noisette et noix?) , un goût de fruit type groseilles j’ai l’impression car elle laisse une note d acidité. Une amertume en fin de bouche mi longue, pas beaucoup de durée. Premier bière de ce genre que je bois , Une amertume discrète et progressivement puissante avec une note d’acidité (groseilles ? ?) Fin de bouche plutôt sèche ! Bonne découverte mais pas mes attentes.

Sainte Hélène La Grognarde
Bottle(0.75l): Deep golden, hazy to cloudy, bigger - firm white creamy head; moderate nose of herbal-piney hops, some malt and a very distinctive yeasty backbone detectable; moderate, dryish, bitter-sweet flavour, almost medium-bodied, pretty soft; slightly lingering bitter-yeasty finish. O.K., but the belgian yeast does not harmonize very well with the hops...

Amber murky looks, nice head. Light spice, lots of fruity esters, nice cara malts. Okay development, quite dry actually. Flavourful body, lots of fruity esters in teh taste, especially in the middle. Not very but sufficiently bitter. A very nice Belgian amber ale with enough warmth despite the low abv and dry enough to be drinkable. Good palate, like it. (75cl bottle from delicatessen gift shop in LLN)

Acheter à Tabac&co palais des bières dans famiflora à dottignies. Bouteille de 33cl. Couleur blonde clair tire vers la blanche légèrement troublé. Au nez , odeur frais , très floral , printanière . Mousse presente et opaque , de bonne texture. En bouche , beaucoup de fraicheur je trouve , peu être grâce à l houblon simcoe. Sensation de printemps avec l’amertume légère de citron vert qu’elle dégage ! Très rafraîchissant. Le style de lager a l’américain est sympa et bien reproduit !

Au nez senteur frais , floral et une note de fruits. En bouche c’est malté, floral peu être bien de la rose ? C’est frais grâce aux fruit , plutôt des agrumes peu être du citron ou citron vert ? Très frais et peu fort en degrés d’alcool.

Goudgeel, troebel en een enorme witte schuimkraag....begint bij openen al uit de fles te komen...... heel veel koolzuur en enorme grote bellen. Aroma: Simcoe hop, bloemig. Smaak: Fruitig en bloemig, subtiele hop kick van de Simcoe, tikje pijnboom en hars en een korte netelige nabitter. Lichte body, waterig en heel veel koolzuur....dit perst het bier door je hele mond. Dit effect doet de hopbitter goed. Best een redelijk goede gehopte lager. Koolzuur ff too much!

Blonde claire légèrement trouble tirant vers la blanche. Mousse de tenue moyenne instable et aérée. Nez houblonné floral et herbeux prometteur. Amertume très marquée dès l’attaque avec arômes herbeux, floral et notes de fruits (agrume). Léger grain. Carbonatation moyenne. Texture aqueuse mais riche. Bière de soif, très légère, surprenante de complexité, style American lager bien reproduit.
