The hint of caramel really gives this beer an edge over the Calvinus Blonde. Around the same quality level as the Calvinus Blanche, nice golden appearance. Easy to drink, medium body. Not too much carbonation (which is a problem with some Swiss beers I find). This is pretty decent stuff to drink when in Geneva, just not as good as the excellent Calvinus Noire.

eduardovl (1359) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 27, 2015
330ml corked bottle served in a Pint glass. A: Pours an orange to copper amber forming a medium creamy and thin bubbled head. good retention and lots of lingering lacings left in the glass. A thin layer remains forever on the top. S: Roasted malts, caramel malts and toffee in upfront. A bit fruity and a bit biscuity and bready yeasts. T: Slightly sweet upfront. Sweet grains, caramel, candy sugar. A bit metallic. M: Light body. Medium carbonation and a sweet caramel malts aftertaste. O: Good drinkability. Very smooth. Not bad. [BA Review @ 07/23/2013]

Bov (12007) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUN 26, 2010
courtesy of fiulijn - pours a clear pale reddish-amber colour with a little persistent foam; discrete flowery aroma with light fruity tones; very smooth palate and a moderate malt body, low bitterness and a gentle flowery finish with hints of caramel - deeply unspectacular but technically ok
