1.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
A golden beer with a beutiful head. It has an aroma of yeast and honey. But the flavor is a little arkwark - it starts out like honey and flowers but then turns sour, there is no malt sweetness and no hoppiness and yet some bitter sour lingering. I tried it in Alsace this spring and now back home it’s the same weird beer.

I don’t know if there is a big freshness issue here, but I must have gotten a good bottle. No skunky off flavors, no funny smell, nothing but a pretty good continental lager. Yellow in color with a thin, fizzy head. My bottle had a sweet, clean malt profile. It is not a very complex beer, but it was refreshing. It must be very delicate and subject to damage easily.

Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear medium amber. Aroma is lightly malty (grain), lightly hoppy (herbs), with a note of solvent. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Sweet grainy plasticine swill.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Light golden colour. Weak hoppy aroma. Sourish and fruity flavour with no bitterness at all. A very bad ’beer’, not unlike a mix of apple cider and beer. Just bare drinkable, so why not buy a real beer???

After glancing at the bottle one might get a slight uphoria for the next 10 minutes, but the anticipation quickly turns to distain. The aroma is acidic and tart. The taste soon follows suit. Probably goes well with French cuisines, though this was not the case with my meal. Extremely disappointed in both the scallops and the brew.

This beer really sucks. One of the worst ever. Totally skunky, and it stinks too. My friend who is an alcoholic and will drink anything, who has chronic cirrhosis of the liver and hepatitis from drinking too much, even said this stuff sucks. Doesn’t get much worse than that.

Notice a bit more maltiness this time around. Not half bad. Original 2.7 The French need to stick to wine. Quite bland with a skunky aroma. Good compliment to French food however and the lightness made it appropriate for lunch

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2003 Re-rate 150703: When I have this beer in DK, it is chemical and phenolic. I have had it bottled and canned in France and that is a different and pleasant experience. Well hopped and malty. The ABV is 6%, not 4,5... Nothing special, but a good lager.

This is one of the worst imports in existence. Blandness rules from its fizzy carbonated head to its wimpy all-around taste. The only thing going for it is its promising aroma, which turns out to be pure fraud upon first taste. Don’t waste your money on this.
