Bottle. A strong fruity aroma, light sour hint of grapefruit, some vanilla. The white creamy head has a normal size, the body is pale yellow. The taste is quite bitter and a little bit fruity. The body is rather light, dry and creamy with a lively carbonation.

12pz bottle shared by Chalemeaux. Thanks, TJ! Pours copper with a big off white head. Aroma is orange, grapefruit, bread. Flavor is sweet. Honey, brown bread, muld grapefruit hop. I think this is probably past its prime. Should re-rate if I get a chance to try this fresh.

Poured from bottle dated 7/31/14 clear golden color with a one finger white head. Aromas of floral hops and citrus. Taste is somewhat dry with a sweet malt feel and a slightly lingering mild bitterness almost like the hops fell off due to the age. I am sure it would be better fresh.

Overall: Crisp pale ale, but a tad sweet and maybe some DMS. The worst beer I’ve had from FW.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Couleur jaune dorée, très légère mousse. Fort nez houblonné pin et résineux avec note agrumes. Gout fruité (jaunes et tropicaux) , feuille de thé vert, et agrumes avec bonne amertume resineuse et zeste d’agrumes. Bon corps. Fin assez longue amère. Moins intense au gout qu’au nez, mais super bien balancée entre l’amer et le fruité, sans être dans l’excès d’amertume. Bonne a faire gouter aux experts, amateurs et débutants du style. Superbe!
