A: The beer is hazy brownish yellow in color and has some hues of amber along with a slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high off white head that died down but never completely faded away, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and a collar consisting of large bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of apples are present in the nose along with hints of caramel malts.
T: Like the smell, the taste has flavors of apple cider along with notes of caramel malts and hints of earthy yeast. A slight amount of bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels a bit shy of being medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I liked this bière de garde because it was fruity and not too malty, which made it easy to drink. It made for a nice accompaniment to my dinner.

Sorry but this following comment is in french :

A : bière de garde blond doré, limpide. Mousse blanche, abondante et persistante
S : malté
T & M : attaque ample et généreuse, elle développe des arômes fruités, avec une légére pointe d'agrumes. Bel équilibre entre la finesse et la puissance d'alcool
D : une nouvelle bière de la gamme Castelain

25cl bottle, poured into goblet.

Pours a dense white 2 finger head, settles to a thin foam after a few minutes and leaves some lacing. Clear blond / amber liquid.

Aroma of plums and alcohol, like a dopplebock or a quad.

Rich and malty as the name suggests. A bit of cheerios toastiness and some honey notes as well. There is a balanced bitterness, rather strong for a French beer. Dry finish with a bit of hop bitterness.

Feels viscous like stronger pale ales, carbonation fairly strong.

Very drinkable. One of the best widely available French blonds.
