50cl can from the Simply Market in France: This one pours a crystal clear, light golden yellow color. There was a bit of a white head on it that left some lacing. Surprisingly light aroma for an 8.5% beer. It is a bit musty and grainy. Maybe a touch peppery. The taste is rather non-descript. It tries to have some tripel notes (yeasty, clove, etc.) but they are in the background. A bit of alcohol, notes of adjuncts. Just strong with minimal flavor. I guess it serves a purpose...

750mL brown glass cork and caged bottle purchased at Winooski Beverage Warehouse. No date.

Pours a crackly pale yellow with thin white head. Nose is a little floral and a little corn-husk-like. Palate is crisp and zippy with some pleasant bitterness. Floral, corn-husk, hay, preserved lemon, key lime essence. Short finish.

This is by no means a complex beer. However, it is doing the job that I think it was made for: refreshing me after working out in the garden. If you think of it as a peasant saison or something, it's not bad. But it's also not great.

Medium straw color with a slightly hazy cast. White head with moderate retention and nice lacing in the glass. Carbonation is fine.

Citrus and light lemon zest in the nose lead to peach, green apple and the light lactic sourness of sourdough bread.

Gentle hop bitterness with citrus and a light resin quality. Lightly bitter on the finish. There is some gentle heat from the alcohol, but the beer manages to balance it nicely.

A little bit of slickness on the palate. The hoppyness in the beer cleans everything up nicely in the finish.

I enjoyed the glass, but was looking to do something different after one...

A pale golden, almost murky straw color. Pretty good head and lacing. A summer looking beer

Lemon zest aroma, some acetone and sweet bread.

The taste is a bit watered down. Up front there some strong flavors of lemon and hints of orange. The middle is lacking but not bad. This beer is a summer blond type of thing.

A good beer with salad or maybe some fruit sherbet.

Clear golden color with a bit of white head. Aroma is yeasty, sweet, quite clean and classic belgian. Taste starts yeasty with sweet malts and some booze. Finish is slightly bitter but still yeasty. Body is light to medium with high carbonation. Classic Belgian, nothing special here.

330 ml. bottle. Pours a clear yellow colour, with a small head that doesn't hold much, but leave a ring. Smell is faint, but there's some vanilla, sugar and flowers. Creamy palate, good enough cabonation. Taste of sugar, citrus, biscuit. Kind of goes from delicate to average and to delicate again. I'll have to taste it again for a definitive opinion.

An okay beer. It's balanced between the caramel and Munich malts, the herbal hops and the peppery yeast. Too bad it's overly sweet and a bit artificial in the end.
On a second tasting, less okay with a band aid smell and taste. The artificial ending remain.

Clear and golden, and lightly carbonated. Flavor of licorice, toffee and caramel. Aroma same. Sweetish brew with oily mouthfeel. A different breed here....
