look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Light yellow color with a huge four-fingers head with great retention.
Aroma with notes of lemon drops, hay, pineapple, Belgian yeast, a good deal of herbal hop and lots of spices.
Flavor with notes of pineapple juice, Belgian yeast, ginger, nutmeg, hay and dough. Dry aftertaste with a spicy finish.
Light body with effervescent carbonation that makes it more filling.
This is actually quite fun to drink despite its low abv. Hoppy, juicy, yeasty and spicy. Still, much milder than their well-known Saison.

While this beer is made for the table -- and with all that carbonation -- designed to cut through the fat of frites and butter.... I'd have to conclude that I would go to many more blonde Belgians -- and most others from Dupont -- before going back to Biolegere again.

Reviewed in the "1001", Biolegere arguably is not good enough to make the list. Being organic is no longer enough since northern Europe produces so many now: the beer must be good also. Biolegere may be good, but it will be a while before this low alcohol level is great in my book.

250ml Bottle from Beers of Europe (£1.29):
Not a bad beer for one that comes in at a mere 3.5% abv., it certainly packs a lot in for such a low alcohol content with plenty of yeast, spice and tart grabbing your attention throughout. The beer is easy to drink and reminds to a lot of Duvel, the only thing letting it down was that the taste could definitely have been a bit stronger, were it not for that then this would have all the makings of a classic.

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.
