4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Light, refreshing, and very pleasant. Just like the French people as a whole, only completely different.
This reminds me of a Belgian, only not as dry and with more flavor than most.
Pours a golden straw color with some chill haze that goes away as the beer warms.
Smells very fruity. Very Belgian in the scent. There's some hints of cinnamon and other light spices.
Tastes good. Apricot is the most obvious flavor. It's rather spicy. The flavors become more complex as the beer gets warmer.
Mouthfeel is full without too much carbonation.
Drinkability rates very high because it's not overly sweet, not too carbonated, and it's quite refreshing. I could easily have several of these.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2004 Golden and very hazy with large white foamy head. Awesome fruity aroma of sweet pineapples, apricot, pears and lemon. Nice!!! Fruity and smooth flavour of orange, sweet citrus, pineapples with some yeast. Alcohol is very well-hidden. Long fruity finish. This one will kill you...maybe not.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very hazy, light golden brew. Tons of yeast particles floating about. Medium-sized, creamy, white head mostly diminishes. Decent lacing.
Smells of apricot and candy sugar. White bread and green apple. Caramel, butterscotch and brewer's yeast.
The flavor is very malty, rich and sweet up front. Very astringent and moderately bitter taste on the backside.
Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and lively carbonation.
Short, bitter-sweet finish.
