UPDATED: FEB 4, 2010 from supermarket Carrefour, Morteau, France - pours a clear amber colour under a solid foamy pale beige head; some toasted malts, dust and fresh cut apples; medium-bodied and sweet, juicy and with a very low bitterness; slightly dry fruity and malty finish - inoffensive

Dark amber and moderate head. The aroma and flavour have notes of candy sugar, fruit, apple peel, and the flavour also has sweetness and citrus. Rather boring, when you think of the 2002 vintage. It had distinct notes of orange and Christmas Spice, that gave that little extra, that made it worth remembering IMO

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle... Clear amber ale with orange highlights and a mid-sized, creamy, off-white head. Excellent, creamy retention. The aroma is of bicuity malts, vanilla and mild orange. Honey-sweet, vanilla flavor; not all that fruity. Medium-bodied with a lightly creamy mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Sweet finish. Overall, too sweet for me.

just a very good balanced taste profile beverage that worked for my friend and I for supper. Orange taste was apparent and not over the top. A nice biere de garde, moderated spicey taste overall , some citrus, not too bitter nor sweet perhaps it was aged some.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
750mL at DC Elite. Pours a clear amber with not much of a head. Aroma of brandied orange, copper, metals, but the primary note is spicy, sweet brandy and orange cognac. Taste is sweet, watery, big metallic. I really want to like this beer because it has a lot of potential but ends up being very difficult to drink even in a small snifter. Copper penny character is just too much.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2010 Bottle. Deep amber pour. The nose is sweet and a bit honeyish with an unusual dark candi sweetness. A fairly odd kiss of clover honey and a bit of strange herbal character. There is some bitter orange on the back. It’s hard to put my finger on why I don’t like this, but I really don’t
Tap at Ginger Man. Clear pale amber pour with no head. The nose has very little aroma actually. A touch of light candy sweetness and a little bit of soft toasted sweetness as well. It is strangely clear with little contribution of either yeast or malt. There is just a touch of orange peel and some cotton candy. Very, very strange brew. A touch of citrus on the back. Peppery
