3.81/5  rDev +7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours hazy golden, one finger foamy head, nice retention.
Smell hits you with Belgian spicy yeasts, clove and spicy herbs, honey, flowers, some faint barnyard funk, really spring-timey.
Starts fruity, green apple and pear, some cherry plum, faint gooseberries, lemon. Grains and green hay follow, lots of green spicy notes, like coriander, green pepper and lemongrass. Lots of floral notes too. It all rounds up to a decent hop bitterness in the finish, a bit dry, but leaving nice spiciness in the aftertaste.
Medium body and carbonation, refreshing, unfiltered.
It is indeed "légère", very green, fresh and quite tasty. Perfect for this time of the year, and a nice refresher during the day.

Poured a nice copper color with a big white head that dissipated quickly and left little lacing. Nose was bready and spicy. Nice. My initial taste was of almost a caramel apple? with nice carbonation. Felt good on the tongue, not too heavy. It finished with a nice mulled spice. Over all I thought it was a very nice ale and would definitely have it again.

Pour is pale yellow with tons of tight white head. Nose is big and has a fair bit of spicy yeast with a nice farmhouse funk behind. Notes of zest and herbal hop in back. Taste isn't quite as bright but still offers the spicy yeast, peppery, light grain note and assertvice heabal and floral hops finish with soft carbonation, clean and lightly bitter.

Served form the 250mL bottle into a tulip at Delirium Cafe on recommendation from the bartender.

A: A hazy golden color topped with a 2.5 finger thick white head with ok retention.

S: Slightly hoppy with a bit of an apple and citrus character. Balanced by a bready note.

T: Sweet on the tongue - a lighter version of Duvel. Wow, that's unexpectedly good. Crisp green apple and a touch of honey. Very fresh tasting.

M and D: Somewhat watery, but forgivable for the alcohol content. A good very drinkable session beer.

From State Line. A very nice yeasty mildly spicey Belgium, at a low ABV. Very drinkable. This is sometimes called the Avril. Lots and lots of drinkable foam, very nice with lunch. Beige tone, a little farm in the aroma but more or less neutral.Good mouthfeel.

Bottle courtesy of mgermani: Poured a hazy light yellow color ale with a super large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of funky yeast with what smells like some light wheat malt notes. Taste is a mix between some funky barnyard notes with an interesting Belgian malt base. While I applaud the decision to brew a light ABV saison type beer form the brewery I feel that the funk is not balanced as well as in some off their other offering and I would have also like a more prominent hops presence in this beer without going overboard. Interesting but also disappointing considering the brewery reputation and I can't understand why so many are in awe of this beer - I would take the Saison Dupont or the Moinette any day over this.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

This beer was tasted at the 2007 Zythos fest.

The weakest beer (in alcohol strength) I tried.

Hazy, light urine yellow, go and see a doctor if you pass anything like this, no head to speak of.

The aroma was of yeast, malt and summer flowers mixed up with lemons, not normal, but not unpleasant either.

Tasted fine, slight fizz to it, citrus fruits to the fore which made it fairly sour and bitter.

Mouthfeel wasn't great, the bitterness hung around for a while, otherwise nothing much at all.

A summer, hot day beer, I would have another, but not search one out.

3.73/5  rDev +4.8%

Presentation: 12 ounce bottle picked up as a part of a mixed Biologique Six-Pack during a recent trip to the Dupont Brewery in Tourpes at Easter. Standard 25cl Belgo-style brown bottle sealed with a black crown cap which has a dark red ‘Dupont Tourpes’ shield on it. Main label is green and white with the word ‘Biolégère’. Has plenty of Organic stamps of approval. Unfiltered with a listed strength of only 3.5% and a Best Before Date of 06/2007.

Appearance: Soft pale golden body with a light milky haze, underscoring the unfiltered nature of the brew. Creamy white head formed easily and the retention was throughout. Carbonation is medium in strength but the carbon dioxide seems to form larger than normal bubbles. Nice overall presentation.

Nose: Hoppy, not intensely but more of a freshly harvested hop character. Lively aromas hold some yeast and Saison background traits. Light citric rind sharpens the senses.

Taste: Fruity start, pears and apples mix with a funky yet hoppy middle. The pears, gently sprinkled with peppers and a delicate herbal trait, make an appearance again in the finish. Zesty lemon rind tickles the tongue in the middle and shortly after the swallow. Fruity overall finish with a green stained fresh hop ending. Some orange in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied, but not watery. Enough resilience to give sufficient backbone to what is, after all, a low strength Pale Ale. The carbonation assists greatly but the fresh hop nature lends some pleasant feel to it.

Drinkability: Refreshing and I intensely quaffable. I could easily manage a few gallons of this one on a warm Summers day, without feeling too impaired too.

Overall: Given its relatively low strength of 3.5%, this is a surprisingly tasty and very drinkable libation. A solid hoppy Organic Pale Ale that has quality. I have never come across this one before, and probably will not see it again for some time, but I would recommend giving this one a drive round the block if you see it. Very interesting indeed.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

BB 04-2006. Nice head leaving laces and a golden beercolor. Frairly huge particles in it. Nose is hoppy, buttery, malty overal not 100% fresh but ok its a lightbeer. Taste is also buttery, grainy, sharp bitterness and some cheese. No this is drinkable but shurly not my taste. Moutfeel shows the emptyness of the brew and is quiet watery with not pure hopbitterness. Drinkable but rather drink half a real beer then this.
