Dark amber color. Malty beer, with a good body strength, medium sweet but with a strong bitterness (of pretty good quality). One of the best common beers in France.

Corked bottle. A distinct quinine aroma. Clear amber color with small head. Initially a sweet malt aroma with a bitter quinine finish. Like tonic water.

From a can. White cidery head, not much of it and it vanishes quickly. Nice warm copper color. Refreshing, I would not mind having this on a hot day. I can’t taste any alcohol. Sweet after taste.

Wow! Interesting. Is this really apple-beer or does it just taste and smell of it? It’s almost like a mix of cider and beer. It’s quite sophisticated, and Carl even thinks it’s like champagne with soft bubbles!

Nice stuff. Poured golden with a thin white head. Aroma was fruity and had a touch of butterscotch. Taste was very pleasant. I’ll have to try this again because I have only sampled it so far.

Similar to a belgian blonde but much, much earthier. Lots of yeastiness and a bit of hoppiness. Very full-bodied given its strength.

Pours a golden amber color, with a nice white head. Aroma is a bit on the weak side, but is fruity - smelling of apples and bananas. Flavor is of sweet apples, pear, and holiday spices. This is a beer that just about anyone can enjoy. Yet another style to love...damn, beer is a wonderful thing.

Cloudy amber appearance with a thin head and spotty lacing. Woodsy, malty aroma with a hint of spice. Well carbonated with a mild fruit taste and a medium-bodied mouthfeel. Tart, dry finish. Very enjoyable.
