3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
75 cl bottle.
Hazy pale golden colour, with a big cottony head. Clearly very bread/yeasty aroma with hints of citrus. Bit raw in aroma profile. Good fruity flavour with dough and yeast. Hints of light caramel. Fluffy, big-ish mouthfeel, at least at this abv-level. Very reminiscent of those blonde Abbey beers. Light sweet and semi-dry. No cellar in this one. It ought to be aged for at least half a year.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Large bottle picked up from small village 8-10 miles along the coast from Calais. Nice deep golden colour with large ice cream head, nice slightly tart bite to it but very good intensity of flavour. A very decent beer brought a couple back with me.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
75cl bottle from Franglais, Calais. Golden, well carbonated in the glass with fluffy off white head. Citrus/yeast lemon and green hop aroma. Much like many bieres des gardes. Good blond, I like these type of beers, it is reminiscent of 3 Monts. On the label it is described at biere de fermentation haute and has a lees also. Smooth in mouth with good finish. The depth and finish are quite impressive.
