Bottled. Yellow-ish in colour. Notes of banana, bitter orange and tit-bits in both aroma and flavour. Roasted and sweetish. Short but pleasant finish.

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.

Dark amber biere with a biere de garde style head, and a sweet syrup like aroma. A very syrupy flavour similar to that of a barley wine. A nice malty barley wine style beer.

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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice spicy, grain aroma. Golden with a smallish head. The malt body is slightly fruity and sweet and a touch thin to be honest especially considering the alcohol level. Silent but deadly!

Nice pale amber color, with a short lived head. Spicy fruit flavor, mildly sweet, and better than any other french beer Ive had.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale golden colour with a good head that lasts just for a minute. Strong fruity aroma (peach and apricot). The flavour is too sweet (honey) with strong fruity traces (apple, orange peels and peach). The finish is not enough bitter. Initially pleasant, this beer is quite unbalanced and becomes quite boring as it warms...

Bright amber. Sweet, candyish malt nose. Nice hoppiness in the body, sweet with organic notes and a touch of alcohol. I don't know, I don't like knocking a beer with this reputation, but nothing admirable stood out in my sample.
