Bière d’automne, la Farandole possède une robe rougeoyante, rappelant les teintes des feuilles en cette saison magique. Un houblonnage généreux confère une franche amertume en attaque, et des malts caramélisés prolongent l’expérience gustative par une note plus douce, pour finalement laisser en bouche une fraîche sensation maltée. Bref, votre bon Docteur Gab’s vous a concocté le remède idéal que contre le spleen automnal!

Bottled 33cl. Courtesy of Philipp Sigg and Thomas Schneider. It pours a hazy amber beer with a small head. Sourish nose which is reminiscent of burnt matches, cress and vinegar. Inviting. Chocolate showing up in the taste. Medium bodied. Strong artisanal components. My kind of beer. Quite delicious.

fiulijn (19160) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 15, 2003
Light amber color, poor head. Pretty strong floreal hoppy aroma, and a bit honeyish. Weak mouthfeel, too bitter (too long hop infusion), more similar to a herb tea or camomile.
Poor, if not for the quite rare aroma.
