Bottle: Poured a clear yellow beer with little or no head. Carbonation is quite weak. Aroma is a bit sweet with some very subtle malt. Taste is quite refreshing with a sweet ending. Quite refreshing for those hot summer days but nothing great or to seek too often.

341 ml brown bottle. A light flavoured lager made with wheat and Czech hops, all according to the label, I wasn't sure what style to use. But as it clearly aims to be a light flavoured, crisp summer refreshment and has a relatively low ABV, I called it a light lager.

A- Very pale and clear yellow. Nice pure white head that sticks to the glass and leaves lacing. Good effervescence.

S- Slight green grapes and citrus fruit. Grain. Very mild.

T- Reminiscent of a Coors light. With a noticeable carbonated water (club soda) character to it. Some grain husk and sourness behind. The grain sticks out in the finish. I'm guessing the wheat used was unmalted. Hops are weak. A touch of bitterness comes through near the end.

MF- Crisp light lager feel. Not bad as a thirst quencher, but not all that much to it.

D- Easy to drink, but so is water. Give it an average as a hot day thirst quencher.

Light beer from Belle Gueule:

So the look of it: Yellow golden color. No head. Medium carbonation

The smell of it: A bit of cereal I guess but very light.

The taste of it: Light corny taste with a touch of cereal on the aftertaste.

So overall would I recommend it ? Yes why not, but a Budweiser or a Coors Light will do the same job. Nothing much different here.

Into a pint, not much head, clear apparance and golden color, low carbonation.

smell like fresh cereal,

taste is crispy, clear, cereal like, light taste of hop,and wheat.

mouthfeel is a bit watery, little after taste of cereal,

Overall, its a light beer for hot summer days.

This is a light beer. Very good for summer drink and thirst quencher.

A- Light yellow and very clear.

S- Very light smell of floral hops. Very little smell.

T- Average light taste and slightly soft... Taste is very refreshing. This is what a light beer should be in my book. It wouldn't score high in a beer tasting since it is not designed for that. However, as for a light beer, I think the taste is good for the beer type.

M- Mouthfeel is slim and it feels almost like water...

D- Can drink this like water...

This is definitely not a beer for tasting. This was designed for thirst quenching and I think it does it very well. I was thirsty and wanted something light. This one did the job!
