2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Orange, with a smaller head. Unpleasant aroma. I certainly taste some citrus, probably orange. Kind of like a bad orange soda. Not very good.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
NOUVEAU GOUT. Dark red in color, rich with a tight-bubbled, tan, sustained head. Aroma is intense with tangerines and candied apple, sweet, and a touch of chocolate. Flavor is same as the aroma. Simple, straightforward, good development of intense flavors (to the point of almost being overwhelming) on the palate, lush for such a low alcohol beer, and pretty unique. Just a right amount of bitterness hits late in the profile to finish the beer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a dark reddish color with a quickly disappearing white head. Smell is of orange peel and some spice. Taste is sort of like watered down orange pop, which isn’t a good thing. This could have been so much better, but it wasn’t. Mouthfeel was thin, with medium carbonation. I didn’t really care for this one, I would maybe try it again in a very distant future.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle @ DØE. Appearance: Pours clear golden with short lived white soapy head and lacing. aroma/taste notes: bread, a bit of caramel, anis and orange. palette: medium aroma, average carbonation, thin to medium body, average to notable caramel sweetness, low to medium bitterness, medium duration and a watery texture. Overall: a bit thin and not quite fond of the spice mix in this one.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
color is rusted deep red. Aroma reminded me of kids medacine with the yeast, light sweetness and odd fruit mix of grape and pit fruit. Taste was robust malt but a little different. Good experience to have but not amazeing.

Labeled as Winter. Pours amber with a fizzy off white head. Aromas of caramel malts, spice, and a touch of spice. Flavor is light dark fruit, bubbly carbonation, spice, and a warming finish. Decent

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice amber biere de garde. Spicy, fullbodied. The aftertaste has some kind of orange-like bitternes, which I do not like.

Citrusy, spicy and sweet. The distinctive nose and head of orange is very winter-like.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Medium pillowy head. Golden amber colored. Smells like caramel and spices. Starts flat, but becomes really complex as it warms. And I though nothing good came from France.
