2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
on tap at la fine mousse, paris. relatively clear light golden with a decent white head, some retention. breadied malts, cereals, fruitiness - apricots, some belgiumness. definitely something wrong with this brew - as per the managers’ sayings too - don’t understand why it was still on menu... average to soft carbonation, light to medium body - oily, short lightly herbal finish. where are the hops? will re-rate for sure...

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle from Saveur-Biere. Hazy golden colour, small but persistant white head. Lovely hop aroma. Medium-bodied, elegant malt flavours provide a good base for the huge amount of aromatic hops that add a resiny-fruity character.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2013 Pours a pale amber color with a medium white head. Nose is mainly citrus and spices. Aromas are citrus (lemon), bread, malts, fruits and herbal hops. A well balanced ale dominated by a hoppy bitterness.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tasted on tap @Ma Che, Roma, on 29/10/2012.
Pours of a perfectly clear amber color with lovely head.
Aroma is medium, quite interesting, definitely belgium yeast, slightly sweet.
Taste is amazing, high carbonation, very intense, classic notes of a pale ale upfront, then following by a wave of caramel sweetness, raisins and dark fruits - awesome.
Aftertaste is a heck bitter and slightly caramely.
To sum up, very good and interesting beer.

Bottle thanks to fiulijn. Pale golden-amber pour with a thin white head. The nose has a little bit of light citrus and some soft fruitiness and a little bit of pale malt. Some soft malt sweetness and a touch of herbal bitterness. Moderate sort of honeyed sweetness along with a bit of light stone fruit character. Lovely.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2013 Served in amazing glass, very classy. With the yeast pours a hazy amber with stable off white head. Fresh aroma with citrus notes and fresh yeast. Quite active carbonation but a lovely dry base. Good amount of bitterness and with that flavour. A classic blond but perfectly hopped. Good stuff. (Bottle at l’Academie de la Biere)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice brew. Pale amber body with a persistent white head. Aroma is like an IPA: citrus, grapefruits, some passion fruit. Taste is a solid combination of sweetness and bitterness. Ends dry and bitter. I didn’t expect something that good from France

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
10/10/2012 Ma che siete venuti a fŕ (tap). Ambrata scarica, limpida, cappello di schiuma bianca abbondante e discretamente persistente. Al naso un bel bouquet intenso di malto e frutta, ananas, albicocca, con note di sciroppo d’acero e spezie. In bocca č morbida, per nulla aggressiva, con un finale forse un po’ troppo dolciastro e zuccheroso. Corpo medio-basso, carbonazione discreta. Buona.
