3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours burnished gold with a big pillowing fluffy tan head and an effervescent body. Aroma of yeast esters, notes of pear, honey, and spicy citrus. Taste is lightly sweet and fruity, with pear and notes of crackery toasted malt. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with a light and pleasing malt stickiness. Carbonation is foamy and aggressive, not quite as gentle and restrained as some of the finer Belgian ales.

Bottle at the Winking Lizard - Pours golden with a pretty good sized white head that stayed well. Aromas of yeast, spice and some pear. Flavors of pear, apple, yeast, and pale malts. Fair carbonation and a light body make this very drinkable. Not bad..

This one comes as Olivier Poussier, but it’s the same beer and brewed at Affligem. Warm golden, nice big head. The aroma is fruity and malty, and the flavour is lightly sweet with fruity notes of apple and citrus in the finish. Ordinary. 1708

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A careful pour yields a straw yellow color with wisps of haze and a persistant eggshell head with excellent lacing. Straw color is echoed with a hay like nose backed up with fruity yeast. Taste, unfortunately, is the least impressive element of this brew. It’s not bad, but it has a difficult to describe hollowness to it.

Draught. A the Heineken Brewery in Strasbourg, France. Served in a Tulip glass with a medium white foamy head. Aroma was spicy and citrus. Taste was mild hops, touch of lemon and possible other citrus, the spices were apparent and a smooth to drink. It was very enjoyable and one of my favorate beers I tried in France.

I really enjoyed this beer. Much lighter than what I’ve been drinking lately. It was very smooth, gold in color and something you could chug in an emergency....I liked it better than Orval.
