0.75 litre cork and caged bottle: BBD 30 July 15. Taken by me to the January Shrewsbury bottle share meeting and split between five of us. Misty golden pour, with a lasting creamy head. Aroma has a mild nutty and bready malt feel. The flavour is more orange marmalade with less nuts and maltiness. I really liked this, one of the best French beers I have tried so far.
