Herbed Blonde Ale, 5.5%, from L’Étang-du-Nord, Magdalen Islands, QC.
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3 = 3.14/5

Bright pale straw color with low activity. Foamy white 2-3 finger head, lasting around 5 minutes, with poor legs. Flavors of ginger, nutmeg, caramel, lemon, peach, sweet grains and floral hops. Smooth oily full body with a light crisp. Light strength finish, slightly floral and spicy, a little fruity but not much, more like caramel and a bit corny with a hint of vanilla. Poor yeast profile having hardly no barnyard feel nor much wild yeast, just a bit rustic. Very delicate, too much, even less than a table Saison. It’s highly accessible though. Strange cross between a Saison and Amber (I guess). At least the body is pleasant and well rounded, but gets quickly dull from the lack of carbonation. Overall average quality craft.
