2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330 ml bottle. Fluffy medium-sized white head. Foggy, well carbonated brownish amber body. Crisp fruits and caramellish malts in the aroma. Notes of mild spices and yeast. Taste is dry malts with light acidic fruit tones. Supported by more mild spices along with some quite stale bittering hops. Body is a bit underweight, but the beer goes well down though...

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Simple, easy-going pale ale in a farmhouse style. Would be an easy pairing for all sorts of food. 33 cL bottle at Le Brunehault cafe in Goegnies-Chaussee village... we’re sitting in Belgium but France is literally across the street. Pours a classic amber color with thin white head. Sweetish, grainy nose with some cider notes. Tastes lightly sweet before the mild bitterness and dry finish. Not exciting but nice, basic, bready.
