C-

33cl into a tulip. Midlin slightly hazed golden hue, egg cream colored head, ok lacing.

Aroma is all low notes, phenolic camphor and a hint of gun powder, nice in spite of itself.

Taste is defined by a strong metal that rides the entire length of the sensation. Very litter bitter, mildly sweet. Lack definition. Lacks fruit. Light bodied lively mouthfeel. Mediocre within a narrow range.

The bottle said "Saint-Martin Blond" and nothing matched that exactly on this website so this seemed to be the closest match.

Appearance - Fizzy head that disappeared quickly. Murky yellow/orange hue with floating yeast particles. Picture vomit in a glass and you have what this beer looks like...yuk!

Smell - Some fruitiness noticable and also so straw scents....nothing that stands out though.

Taste - Sorry I don't really care for this beer.
Some spiciness to it which I don't care fore. At least it goes down realitively smooth with little aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Fizzy like champagne in the mouth. Otherwise nothing impressive at all.

Drinkability - Actually has a tolerable drinkability factor. Fairly light and no bad aftertaste of note. The flavorings just seem off though.

I could drink this if offered but would not seek it out again. I've had several other Belgian Blonde Ales that are much better than this offering.

Review from BeerAdvocate magazine Vol. II Issue X:

Slightly hazy, golden-colored beer with straw edges and a decent creamy lace. Fresh and sugary malts, green wood, pith, hay, a touch of spice, pear and alcohol. Crisp and creamy on the palate. Fluffy mouthfeel. Sweet up front with some herbal notes (lavender comes to mind), going dry and with hints of medicinal flavors and apple skins. Mild grassy bite. Fruit (mango) on the breath. Lightly metallic beneath. Even drier. Straw. Then bone dry.

No great shakes here, just a basic Belgian blonde that provides some drinkability, but its flavor is short-lived and border-line bland.

(courtesy from Loic Tyberghein) 330ml bottle. La Chouffe Tulip glass. Enjoyed on mar13. Pale yellow straw color. Veiled. White froth creates close crown. Lasting thin layer remains on top. Sweet yeast, herbal & hay aromas, hints of citrics & grape, spiced notes. Enters smooth malty rounded by honey touch with subttle underneath hoppiness. Medium body. Moderate to high carboantion.Texture is dense to watery. Fruits & spices in the middle linger into a dry non-sharp bitter finish. Fruity aftertaste, Refreshing & drinkable since ABV is felt but sensation is pleasant. Pretty corrrect beer, neither bland nor flat as many Bios use to be.

A - copper; big thick white head; great retention

S - sweet apple, musty, grassy

T - sweet, heavy intense apples, grassy

M - thin, light bodied, smooth, little carbonation

This is a light, easy drinking beer, but it has an off putting apple note that really ruins this for me. I'll avoid in the future.

Clear golden color with off-white head. Aroma is sweet, malty and grainy with some light yeast esters. Taste follows with the sweet malt and grains, some bread notes, light belgian yeast notes, some earthy bitterness on the finish. Medium body with medium to high carbonation. A decent belgian ale with more focus on the grains.

A: Golden and hazy with lots of carbonation, 2 fingers of whipped cream, dense, long lasting off- white head.


S: Grassy, floral, light malts, peaches.


T: Buscuity with light sweetness, floral, light peachy fruitiness.


M: Medium, bready, both foamy and solid soda like carbonations happening simultaneously, creating an interesting texture.


O: Impressed by all 3 of these Bio’s I’ve had. Thought it wouldn’t be so good so have avoided trying them. Got in Chiang Mai, drank December 17th, 2014.
