clear light golden, not much of a head. aroma is very very earthy and not to my liking. flavor is pretty much the same...hops are earthy, with only a hint of bitterness...body and mouthfeel are pretty thin..i taste oregano in the finish too.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2004 Bottle pours a fairly clear pale yellow with big bubbles, a short lived head, and no lace. The aroma is floral hops. The flavor is subtle, very light, very slightly yeasty and spiced with a very spritzy palate. Overall, this must be Jade Lite.

One would expect much better from a self-proclaimed "biere artisanale" which proudly displayes the master brewer's signature on the label. Deep yellow body, slightly cloudy, with a quickly disappearing head. Unremarkable aroma. Watery and almost tasteless, vaguely yeasty and tarty. No, thanks.

Pale and frothy appearing biere de garde with a fruity and dry aroma. The flavour is watery and lightly hopped. Overall a weak tasting biere de garde.

750 ml. Bottle. Looked like Budweiser, but smelled a little fruity. The taste was a little fruity but was very bland. The French should stick to making wine!

Light in color with a very faint aroma. The taste is light and smooth with no sharpness to the finish. Slightly fruity, not very complex.

Nothing special here, except that it is an organic beer. Yellow colour with almost no head. Faint taste and aroma. Not bad, but there are better organic beers than that.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Honey color with a very small lid of off white bubbles. Aromas of stale pale malt and floral hops. Fluffy malt flavors with undertones of farmhouse yeast and light perfumy hops. Dryer in the finish with little to show for itself.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Odd beer. Pours a hazed blond. Small white head. Nose is odd it's fruit and grains and maybe cardboard. The taste effervescent but not in a champagne sort of way. Some tingle on the tongue but definite malt and fruit flavors dominating this one. Has sort of a dry chalky finish. Not a bad beer, but not an award winner either. Definitely worth trying though!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is mostly malt - substantial caramel, with light fruitiness (the fruit smell is strong, but its light fruit). Very clear light amber, not the best head retention. Flavor matches the aroma. Actually tastes like an English pale minus the hops (very similar to the Sam Smith Winter Welcome I had yesterday). Medium body with moderate carbonation. A decent beer - lacks complexity, not really strong enough to be a biere de garde. Good session beer.
