To me this is a perfect day for a French country ale,a beautiful spring day.Pours into an oversized wine glass a clear light golden with a half finger white head leaves a sheet of lace as it settles into a frothy mass.Musty notes in the nose along with bready malts,faint leafy hops are detected as well.A little sharp and prickly in the mouth from a good amount of carbonation.Dry on the palate with real crisp breadiness, herbal sharp hops in the finish,the dryness makes it very drinkable.A quaffing country beer that is uber food friendly,a good choice to start the beer drinking day.

A 330ml bottle with a BB of August 2013. Picked up a while back from Trembling Madness in York. A silver-medal winner in a Parisian competition; the label describes it as a blonde beer brewed with three hop varieties. The French have decided to embrace modern brewing styles....
Poured into a Delirium chalice. A hazy golden-amber hue with good carbonation and tons of flocculent sediment floating around (possibly coagulated protein). Produces a large head of creamy white foam with decent retention; this slowly subsides to a thick surface layer. Aroma of fruity yeast esters with hints of light malt, grass/hay, spice, a touch of coriander, mild citrus and faint tropical fruits. A warming whiff of booze lurks in the background.
Tastes of light malt with a yeasty character and a dry finish. Notes of fruity yeast esters, peppery spice, coriander, earthiness, grass/hay, faint citrus and stewed hops. Well-attenuated, with a hint of solventy booze in the background. The aroma hops don't come through so much in the flavour. A subtle bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is velvety smooth, accompanied by tingly carbonation and a slight spiciness. Dry, with a lovely creamy body. Somewhat astringent, followed by an aftertaste of fruity yeast, earthiness and stewed hops.
Very nice - tasty and balanced. It looks good, with a predominantly yeasty aroma/flavour illuminated by subtle aromatic hop notes. The body is great; it glides over the palate like silk. The influence of Belgium and the US are discernible, with a yeast profile that reminds me of a Belgian blonde and hopping that recalls an American pale ale. A solid effort that goes down almost too easily; worthy of your time if you come across it.

Pours amber with a large white head.
Nose shows doughy Belgian yeast, spicy phenols and orange peel.
Pretty similar flavours, more orange peel, spicy phenols, light malt and cinnamon. A little heavy on the spices but still nice.
Good moderately high carbonation.

Poured from 750 mL bottle into tulip.
A: Pours a clear golden yellow with moderate carbonation producing a 1/2 inch white head. Excellent retention. Hint of lacing.
S: Honey, herbal notes, sweet melon, minerally mustiness, and a pleasant subdued floral note. Quite nice.
T: Tart fruit and a dry mineral note up front. Then comes a pleasant and fairly delicate melange of herbs (very similar to a chamomile tea) and floral (lavender) notes. A distinct note of lychee. Finishes like a dry sparkling white wine.
M: Light body. Some carbonated effervescence. Lightly sweet with a slightly oily feel. Pleasantly dry finish (more wine-like, not a hoppy bitter dryness).
D: An eminently drinkable brew. Very nice for style. Delicate, complex, and intriguing. Refreshing and wonderfully sessionable.

Drank from my Mane Liquor tulip.
A - Pours a clear honey colour, with a two fingered head that reduces quickly, but does lace.
S - Plenty of yeast (Belgian) plenty of citrus and a little funk
T - HAs a bit of funk up front, and the hop is submerged and not present enough. The yeast too dominant. Bits of citrus and grain also present.
M - Medium body and mouthfeel.
O - Not a bad BdG but Tres Monts is a far better example.
