2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
65cl fliptop bottle from the "bio corner" @Leclerc Verdun. - Typically malty French lager which sadly muffles all quality natural ingredients and specifically characteristic natural hops (pepper, grass, some lemon) under almost chewy layers of it seems poorly ground malts. Kronenbourg’s self-righteously organic nephew?

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden clear body and bubbly white body. Light malty, farmhouse yeast, not very fruity, grass hops but only little. Simple Belgian style blond with very mild taste. Doesn’t quite stack up to the Belgian originals but an extra point for being organic. Unexciting. (50cl bottle from Carrefour in Tours)

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
25 cl bottle, Paris, France via Monoprix. Medium gold, thin head. Faint spice aroma, some honey, fairly carbonated with a spicy finish. Better than a standard French lager but, perhaps not worth the premium.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle, 33cl. A lightly unclear, golden orange beer with a small, white head. Quite butterscotchy aroma, with caramel, fruityness and some notes of orange. A little caramel in the flavor, a touch of butterscotch, and mostly generic fruityness and also some citrus. Some bitterness towards the end. Medium body, pleasant carbonation. A drinkable one, getting used to the butterscotch. 120804
