2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
10th April 2009
Bottle from La Cave A Bulles. Memorial beer to the battle of the Somme. Clear gold beer. Soft palate. Creamy malt with a bitterish edge of hop. Comes accross a soft lager. Nice intention but an average beer I’m sorry to say!

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Hazy pale yellow, small head. Citric lemony brett aroma. Slim and tart, grainy and lightly earthy. Finishes with low bitterness. Intentional or not - I like the acidity in De Clercks beers.

<i>Bottle from La Cave à Bulles, Paris</i>
A gusher, one third of the bottle goes down the sink; in the glass there is a hazy golden colored beer with a huge frothy head; fermentation control is really not a strength in France…
The aroma if a bit earthy, and citrusy, not bad. It has a sweetish flavor, lightly malty, correctly bitter; but also a light sourness due to the wrong fermentation. Without this problem, it could be a refreshing beer.
