About Gauloise Blonde by Brasserie du Bocq

Its slight bitterness gives it a slightly fruity and hoppy aroma. Not too strong but round strong character. A powerful beer structure and a lovely strength. The bubble is fine and soft. The palate is smooth, round and fruity (pear, orange, blond tobacco, milk chocolate). In the end palate, a tangy side and a little bitterness is clearer, giving it balance with its freshness.

It all began in 1858 when Martin Belot, farmer in Purnode, brew a beer for the first time in his farm’s outbuildings. At first, the beer was produced only in winter, the staff not being busy with field work outside of the high season. Moreover, the discovery in Purnode of a layer of water exceptional for its quality and quantity, was a great asset.
