Je vais vous dire c’est quoi la Disco Soleil : c’est LA bière la plus facile à boire que j’ai essayé de toute ma vie, point. Je crois d’ailleurs qu’elle vise à quelque part ce marché des personnes encore non initiées à la bière, qui aiment au mieux boire une Corona sur une terasse quand il fait chaud l’été... Cette bière pourrait être un point tournant pour elles.

Non seulement la Disco Soleil se boit d’une manière encore jamais vue pour moi, mais elle n’est pas fade pour autant! On goûte définitivement les fruits (agrûmes et Kumquat j’imagine) et il y a une amertûme de houblons bien présente mais qui demeure controllée à la perfection... Bref, rien qui peut choquer un palais non expérimenté d’une côté, mais rien de trop aqueux non plus pouvant faire fuire les beer geeks plus avertis. En fait, ces derniers vont probablement considérer la Disco Soleil comme une "bière de soif". Une christie de bonne bière de soif!

Bon travail DDC!

Pours a hazy yellow color with a small white head. Nose is mainly orange peel you also get some peach. Taste is pretty smooth at first with a sweet touch and it ends with a medium citrus hoopyness. Quite fruity and good.

CurbDog (17) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 22, 2015
White head, tight bubbles, diminishes quickly to a thin persistent blanket. Hazy, yet bright orange. Kumquat up front blended with tropical and citrus aroma blended with bready/doughy malt aroma. Kumquat, grapefruit zest/pith, tropical, sweet citrus, doughy malt, lingering bitterness that seems more characteristic of citrus pith over hop bitterness. Med body, dry finish.

b3shine (6581) - Indiana, USA - JUL 22, 2015
Draft to taster at HopCat. Looks good; a transparent gold with eggshell head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells of a nice balance of fruity hops and kumquat with notes of citrus and a mild to moderate semi-sweet backbone. Tastes like it smells with a soft and seemingly undercarbonated medium-bodied mouthfeel. Good, not great. Drinks lighter than 7.2%.
