Deu (895) - Nantes, FRANCE - FEB 19, 2015

Renobob (1167) - Besançon, FRANCE - NOV 15, 2014
Bue à la pression. Bière trop sucrée, peu de CO2, pas de mousse. Mal équilibrée, on ne sent que le malt. Pas géniale.

freretoc (1106) - Besançon, FRANCE - SEP 21, 2014
Bue à la pression au Kilarney (Besançon) en 25cl, couleur blonde, mousse moyenne tout comme l’effervescence, une bière assez amère en début de bouche, maltée et sucrée juste sympa.

mike_77 (3885) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - APR 18, 2014
Has a red amber color. The aroma and flavour are strong with syrupy red fruit. Considering it’s sweetness it is quite smooth and easy to drink.

Quack-Duck (8433) - Down South, GERMANY - MAR 2, 2014

Horrible. For once I forgot to read the sticker. "sirop de glucose". I hate things that have nothing to do in a beer. Too much sugar. Only the appearance is well. Run to the hills if you see it somewhere. And take for example a not expansive little good one like floreffe

harrisoni (14996) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2013
33cl bottle from Terre de Boissons, Calais. Clear amber lasting white head. It’s pretty good. Drinkable 8% beer, bit of mustiness bit of oxidisation. Otherwise it’s fine. I’d have gone with strong French biere de garde, but didn’t know it was a lager. And wouldn’t taste it. might be an older bottle hence the oxidisation. Fine, it’s ok.

kevnic2008 (9571) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - JUN 18, 2012
Pours deep golden with a small white head. Sweet aroma. Deep sweet malt body with some bitterness but not a lot of hop flavour.
