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.

Ratman197 (11754) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - SEP 6, 2006
Bottle best by date 12-2006 poured a clear gold with lots of little fishys swimming and a creamy lasting off white head. Aromas of yeast, apple, peach and a hint of sour milk. Palate was light bodied. Flavors of peach, spices, bread and yeast with a lingering moderatly sweet finish.

Huge, very dense & fine yellowish head over hazy orangey-golden beer. Sweet nose, with initially quite some vanilla, then more vegetable, spice and a certain acidity suggested. Sourish vegetable/fruity taste; some citrus, but also a bit of vinegar. Pickles? Some toasted malts, not sweet. Acidthinning, light body. Production artisanale? That’s a nice way of saying it tastes like homebrew. Merci à Mathieu!

Light golden color with a small white head. The taste is sweet and artificial. Kind of watery.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 7, 2004
Sweet malt, butterscotch, pear and grape in the aroma. Orangeish brown color; thin white head. Moderatley sweet, with some oxidized cardboard like flavors, some light fruit as well, dissapointing.

[’04 PIBF] Clear blonde with some head and lacing. Sweet cucumber nose. Very sweet. Too sweet. Not my thing.

What the...? Is this apple cider or a Belgian ale? That’s all I detected in this thick, sugary brew. And the particles suspended in the glass might be interesting but I found it a bit disturbing. Not my bag, baby.

Bottle: This beer pours a cloudy gold color with a white, fizzy, diminishing head. Dominant aroma is alcohol along with scents of sweet spices like cinnamon & nutmeg. Also noticed was a hint of grape. The carbonation is pretty strong making this brew rich and sweet. I didn’t like this one because in all that sweetness I felt like I was drinking liquified dryer sheets soaked in bowling alley wax topped with a dollup of saddle soap all covered by a horse blanket. In my humble opinion, I think the French should stick to making great Bordeaux’s and Côtes du Rhône’s!
