2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Had this twice... both in that classic bottle. However, the second pairing ended up being extremely sour. Not much more that hasn’t been said, but I was actually disappointed given my first try, which was a lunch time pairing in NYC with a braised beef dish at Les Halles. Nothing spectacular, light malt sweet, but this bottle was very sour... I guess this is why Belgians, rather than the French are known for their beer prowess.

Bottle from Carrefour, Nice. Rusty-amber with no head. Not much aroma but a rich sugary sweet taste with malt evident.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz capped bottle, from Party Town, I believe. Mostly clear orange color. Thin off-white head. Leaves good, thicker lace, at least initially... Fades to a minimal ring. Medium body. Smooth, crisp, lighter carbonation. Lightly slick. Some bready caramel malt, slightly peppery. Some orange hop aroma. Lightly spicy. Moderate sweet taste, with a significant bite to the taste. Not great, but not totally awful.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bien meilleure à la pression qu’en bouteille. Un peu trop sucrée certes mais bière qui passe très bien même au bout de plusieurs pintes ;)

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Sweet skunk aroma on the mild side. Brown with a touch of amber. foamy two finger head that has a tinge of caramel color. has a roasted caramel malt taste. kind a sweet and sour finish. One of the oddest tasting brews I’ve had.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Weak, mildly skunked aroma with caramel and grass. Flavor is mild and sweet with caramel and toffee. A little grassy hop bitterness in the finish. Not for everyone, nor worth seeking out, but pleasant enough.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle. This is a thin, tinny, and generally bad beer. It does not deserve the bottle it is in.
