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.

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.
