picked up a sixer on a recent trip to Vancouver from the strip mall down the street from the Biltmore Cabaret. poured into pint glass.
pours a pale yellow, 1/2" white head with slippery, minimal lacing. damn bubbly, pretty standard.
smells of mighty, mighty hops and barley. doughy, the "skunky" vibe "green" bottle beers tend to get associated with the bourgeoisie is there.
interesting twang to the taste, perhaps from the hop/barley infusion, sort of floral. other than that, not much there. thin, "skunky" (for lack of a better term) aftertaste.
smooth and refreshing brew. damn good cold. it's own twist because it's French, I suppose. they like to have their own twists.

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....
