3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Caramel coloured with a white head. Aromas are caramel, chocolate and spice with some mustiness. Flavours are caramel, sugar and that strange (to me) French whisky thing. Its odd, but OK.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2004 Best before March 2004. Probably 2003 bottle. Pours like a light honey orange tea, with a decent sized white head. Extra clear, filtered. Aroma is standard for a belgian amber, light yeast, some caramel and a hint of hops. Began astringent, dry and harsh with no sweetness and too much sharp carbonation. As it warmed, it mellowed out. Became a slightly sweet, hoppy beer that is probably closer to an American Pale ale or an Amber than a belgian ale. Only the apparent belgian yeast gives some redeeming quality. Nothing special, but it's nice to try a lesser known small brewed French beer. Thanks again for the bottle, Philippe.

UPDATED: APR 22, 2007 Bottled. Hazy orange coloured. Aroma of caramel and vanilla, really liked it. Malty quite complex flavour. Didn’t expect to find a quality brew during a holiday of skiing, but there it was.

Hazy brown-yellow beer with firm white head.
Middle of the road beer from an otherwise excellent brewery.
But it´s definetely not a downhillslope

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice orange color, thick head. Malt and hop aroma, metallic. Dry, light malt, metallic; distinctive blueberry finish. Too long hop infusion. A bit homebrew style, but quite peculiar.
