3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A dining room rate, the first in some time.
Pours a hazy yellow with a big head and spotty lacing on the glass.
The aroma is lightly earthy with wet limestone, some herbal character, and a lot of fresh baked white bread.
The flavor is quite pleasant, there is a mild floral bitterness throughout with a soft baguette like maltiness and a bit of earthy minerality. It’s quite dry and has just a touch of lemony character. Well rounded and spicy at times without ever entering the "clove" realm.
This is lovely, I hope that I’ll get to try it a bit fresher someday.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 75cl corked. Almost clear in the glass, pale golden in color, and topped by a dense, white, finger-thick head. Flowers, pale malts, hints of white sugar, some banana and a generic fruityness in the aroma. Medium body with a soft carbonation. Decent bitterness and a mostly fruity flavor with some flowers, banana and white sugar. Rather dry though, it’s not on the sweet side. Lasting fruity finish. A tasteful and quite refreshing one, interesting too. 160102

Bottle, SX Bottle Share
Great conditioning for the style. Prominent white lacing. Hazy. Smells of wild flowers, dandelions, morning garden dew. Taste is white wine grapes, lemons, soft malts, a dry but pleasing finish. Really spritzy and zingy. A great Bierre de Garde. Top work.

Bottle shared at home. Big gusher so half the bottle lost on the floor. Slight hazy golden with short lasting off white head. Quite sweet malty notes, some honey and flowers, light lemon, lots of light spicy yeast with some white pepper, nice farmyard character. Medium sweet and very light bitter and sour. Medium bodied with slick feel and a bit soft but fizzy carbonation. Nice.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
one yellow and pale orange light haze .. Good crown d white spongy foam with good retention and active carbonation. Lacing remains are abundant and well-defined inside the cup. Very aromatic, with the presence of yeast, sweet and sour citrus notes (candied orange) and sweet fruit like pear, banana and Paraguay. Against a background of honey and caramel float also other shades of earthy, floral and medicinal character that add complexity.
In the mouth firm, flavorful, with sweet and fruity notes entry and more acidic, dry and astringent. Very well balanced with earthy and smooth bitter finish point. Flavor with hints of pear, banana and orange marmalade. Medium bodied and lively carbonation. Easy to drink tight style
