4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a three finger white head that fades to a ring leaving some lace. Clear amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Sweet malty nose. Starts smooth and bready, more balanced at finish, the higher ABV is well hidden. One of the better French beers I’ve had. $3.40 for a 330ml bottle from Liquid Solutions Tigard, Or.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle at Sous-Bock, Paris, 16 Oct) Pale amber colour with copper notes. Small, disappearing white head. Fruity nose with notes of apricots. Slightly closed. Fruity flavour with pineapple, apricots and spicy hops in the finish. Medium to full body, full flavoured with some alcohol coming through, not overly sweet though. Tasty and warming.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
330. Pours dark, still straw with a big sudsy white head that heads for the door the first chance it gets. Good god, the nose is super freaky funky strong. Sour horse blanket barnyard, bordering on manure. Not a pleasant first impression. And that’s served probably a little cold for the style. Eee--the sour funk dominates the palate, too. Too much. Wild yeast running wild in a pachinko pinball machine of -cillus and -myces generations in your mouth. Not fun.

Pours a golden color with a thick white head. Aroma is of citrus, earthy spices, and yeast. Flavor is of orange, lemon, coriander, and yeast. A slightly bitter finish on this one. A very interesting brew, not bad but not that great.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From Liquidsolutions. Nose is like a can over ripe funky peaches with a pinch of allspice. Light golden brew and forsure,not filtered. Each sip I tried to figure out exactly what I was tasting, I know it was a peachy mix but also maybe even some old socks. Weird.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a light straw color with many floaters. Aroma of sweet spiced apple and yeast. Very light on the palete and a crisp dry bite. Taste similiar to the aroma and a sweet bitter aftertaste. Strange brew, not really to style, but I enjoyed it.

Duane shared this at a tasting. Smelled like a funky apple cider, as well as some yeast. There was some sweet flavors and some kind of weird sour flavors as well. Pretty strange, and not so good, mix of flavors

Thanks for sharing, Duane. The body was dark gold with little head on top. The aroma was funky peaches with colby cheese. There was also some pancakes. Very sweet. The taste was peach schnapps with bread crust. There was a surprisingly dry finish. A weird one, even for a Belgian strong.
