bottle from Bièrerie Illkirch-Graffenstaden. Hazy pale yellow, small white head. Resiny-yeasty nose. Starts like a typical bière blanche, then a resiny touch tunes in. Works really well!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Hazy golden with medium sized white head. Very fruity at first with lemon, lime and apricot followed by a light touch of pine resin. Light dough and yeast but a bit subdued by the hops and pine. Light sweet with medium bitter middle and finish. Medium bodied with slight creamy feel. Quite good actually. I was not so impressed with the very hoppy wheat beers I've had before but here it works quite well.

33cl courtesy of jaghana, shared@TriState Tasting II. "Blanche aux bourgeons de Sapin". Apparently also new world dryhopped - Citra? Citrus and pineapple jam aromas upfront, subdued fluffy yeast profile, late fir needle entry, providing a very elegant finish. Successful, refreshing crossover.
