REVIEW #38: Gouyasse Tradition Blonde (Brasserie Des Geants)

Pours a pale cloudy lemon with soapy white head. Lemon zest, citrus fruit and floral nose. Delicately sweet floral notes on the palate. The citrus of the nose is more subdued in the taste. The finish is very similar but dry and faintly yeasty. Pleasant, drinkable and well balanced but not outstanding.

Brasserie Des Geants is based in the city of Ath, a municipality within the French speaking part of Belgium. Ath is known for its 'ducasse' on the last weekend of august; a religious festival that's held in villages throughout Belgium and the north of France. Giant effigies of David and Goliath (among others) parade through the town and re-enact their famous battle. The brewery named this beer after the Goliath of this event, Gouyasse being a popular name for the giant. It was first brewed in 2000. They also produce a hard-to-find Christmas Goliath.
