I had this beer in France 2 weeks ago on draft where I was taken aback by its stunning ability to conquer my thirst while my friends and I were celebrating my brother's wedding in Lyon.
When I returned to the USA, I immediately went hunting for this beer in Huntington, NY. Shoreline Beverage came through with a 6 pack for about $8, which was ok with me as long as I could taste recent history again. The bottle version I'm looking at now looks like Molson Golden, but tastes like a creamy Heineken with a slight bitterness.
No, it's not Duvel or Magic Hat, but it's great drinkability means you can serve it to your mother, your wife, and your friends at the next tailgate party without another thought. Yes, you can even serve the backwash to the slugs in your tomato garden, if there is anything left over.

DATE REVIEWED: June 21, 2014... GLASSWARE: Blanche de Chambly pokal... OCCASION: Willow Lake orientation day...APPEARANCE: cascading bubbles round out a clear golden body; thick white head--exhibits excellent white cloudy lacing... AROMA: fragrant Saaz with soft lemongrass and some wheat yeasts--fresh and energizing (and unexpected)... PALATE: soft, almost creamy champagne-like (unavoidable comparison?) and smooth; light, clean, dry aftertaste... TASTE: a bit maltier than anticipated; refreshing with some fruitiness and honey accents... OVERALLL: a surprisingly strong profile for a beer--a French beer, at that--I had long forgotten since our trip abroad in '03..this beer poured fresh, presented well, cleansed the palate as a pilsner is apt to do, and offered just enough flavor to elicit a satisfied night....
