2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a clear dark amber color, topped with a decent white frothy head. Malty aroma, notes of caramel easily picekd up, some herbal smell also present. Taste is sweet and caramely, followed by very mild bitterness and herbal finish. Not bad, drinkable, but nothing too great.

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2014 330ml corked bottle served in a tulip.
A: Nice clear orange (to amber) color with a one to two fingers head which dissipates quickly leaving some lacings
S: Sweet malts, caramel, oak and alcohol
T: Sweet malts, caramel (or honey) and oak. I suppose that this beer is aged on Scotch or Cognac casks since it leaves a taste of Scotch malts and alcohol in the back of the mouth. Light sweetness in the beginning and light bitterness in the end
M: Light to medium body with medium carbonation
D: Medium. I felt a little bit "burden" after the first bottle
Not bad for a French beer.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Swing top bottle, 0.65l. Clear deep amber color with large frothy off-white head and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of caramel, perfume, dark fruits and herbs. Taste starts with light sweet caramel malt, follows by vegetably and herbal acidity, while finish is light bitter. Light body, slick texture and average carbonation in palate. Appealing bottle, otherwise boring...

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
65cl Bottle on Syros from Carrefour. I managed to avoid this during previous visits, but running out of ticks made me desperate, apparently. Clear copper colour, white head. Aroma of root beer and grain, skunk. Flavour is very sweet, and I just had a Magnum White, that should say enough. Root beer, caramel, it’s really just lemonade and beer. Awful stuff, far from worthy of the addition ’Reserve’ in the name. 60cl down the drain. And 4,50€. Avoid at all costs.

Amber color, medium white head. too much sweet, too much caramel, too much herbal... reminds tea infusions with lots of honey/caramel... never to repeat...

Anciennement la Dorelei, une bière ultra sucrée mais pas si mal équilibré en fin de bouche trop caramélisé cependant

0,65L bottle with swing top. Pours amber with off white head, the head doesn’t stay. Aroma is faint cereal, sour, and caramel. Tastes like sugar water. Overall: if you want to get drunk from sugar water, this is great drink!

Bottle shared by martjoobolut, thanks! Clear amber, off-white head. Nose is malts and caramel, vague fruitiness. Taste is very sweet, sugar-candy-water, little hops to speak of. Medium body, oily mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Unbalanced and cloyingly sweet.
