3.51/5 rDev -10.9%
look: 4.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75
Continued tour of French beers. Bought in Lyon, poured chilled in ale glasses, chez buzzlitebeer
A: bright; light, like a champagne/prosecco; foamy head; good lacing
S: like a dry white wine or prosecco; grape aroma
T: bright, pilsner-like quality; apple cider in the body; the yeast (champagne?) is a strong element; very much like a fruit or cider beer
Really nice, well worth a trip.

3 Monts Flanders Golden Ale
Appearance: Lovely deep gold color, little bubbles of carbonation rising to meet the fluffy head. The head is full of tight foamy bubbles, and lasted for a few moments. Lacing was nothing special, just a few patches around the glass rim.
Smell: Definitely has some sweet malt blended with fruity lemon and orange esters. Light spices, coriander and hints of clove. Very subtle and delicate aromas.
Taste&Mouthfeel: Very nice. The medium body is light but has the depth of spices. The malt seems to have hints of wheat, and is cut by the spices. There is a little heat on the back end from the alcohol, which surprised me because it's not a particularly strong in ABV beer. I wanted slightly more citrus, though the beer had sharp acidity, it still lacked the flavors of orange and lemon my nose had led me to believe would be present. Good carbonation is a major plus in this brew.
Overall: It is refreshing as a brew, esp after drinking so many IPAs lately. I passed my glass around and it was a crowd pleaser. Personally, it was a little sharp in heat and acid with not enough esters to mellow out the flavor of the malt and coriander. Still, as I said, the others in the room gave it higher marks than I.
