3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
from Morteau, France - hazy blond-orange beer under a solid white foam; nice lacework; aroma of almonds, old apples and tangerines; sweet and medium-bodied; light residual sweetness and more fruity and gently spicy tones in the finish - not much character yet ok

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Nice looking label and story on the back. Unfortunately the beer was very disappointing. I’m not sure if it was bad, but I didn’t get much hop presence. Instead, a rancid butter (reason to belief it is a brewing mistake) aroma dominates. Some lychee perhaps, yes, but very mild malts. The carbonation is soft and pleasant, but the taste has too much butter as well. I will pick this up some other time to re-rate. (33cl bottle from Chop’in)

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours amber with a large white head.
Nose shows doughy Belgian yeast, spicy phenols and orange peel.
Pretty similar flavours, more orange peel, spicy phenols, light malt and cinnamon. A little heavy on the spices but still nice.
Good moderately high carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, 6.5%. Refreshing aroma, good citric hoppiness, and refreshing yeast. Hazy golden colour. Big semi-stable white head. The flavour starts off yeasty, but it also has a refreshing and citric hoppiness, like the aroma. Slightly sweet, clean enough. Good.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 c&c from Bottle Barn in Santa Rosa, CA. Pours dark gold with a creamy white head. Lots of fruity hop in the aroma. Med body or better. Flavor is something peppery, fruit, yeast/fruitesters, something tropical, gets a little floral perfumey. Moderate malt. Really quite flavorful.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured a clear deep golden colour with a three- to four finger white foamy head that retained Ok and laced with spots of clingy suds. Carbonation low with small bubbles. Aroma of sweet malt, musty yeast and spice/cloves. Taste of malt with moderately strong phenolic character coming out as cloves which over-rides any bitterness that may be around. Light to medium body. Clove driven finish reminds me of a wheat beer. OK.
