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.

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
