3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle conditioned 750ml. Lightly hazed body with a fine, lasting white head. Clove definitely does pop out in the nose, it’s spicy, dusty, airy, pepper and slightly phenolic. Luscious, creamy carbonation, medium body, semi-sweet, husky, starchy... finishing with a strong clove / gingerbread / cardamom note. Nice carbonation, pleasant softness to the malt contrasted with moderately strong acid and the peppery / herbal / woody clove note. Decent stuff.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This French Blonde pours with a deep white head and a dark hazy cloudy color that proves its not a generic blonde! The grainy aroma has a hint of spices, and the flavor on the tongue leaves you coming back for more. The beer hits you with a sharp tone and a lingering palate. While it smells grainy it doesn’t have that flavor. An all around great beer, from the wine country!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Good off-white head, frothy, over hazy yellow beer. Very flowery-herbal nose, hoppy. Eugenol with herbs and pale malts; Very strange beer - this is REAL clove flavour, not at all the Bavarian 4VG flavour. Light to medium bodied, giving the impression of being heavier than suggested by the ABV, still well-attenuated. Special. Fully intended? Txs, Stefaan!
