Clear pale golden. Aroma of elderflower. Sweetish and clean with strong elderflower flavour. Looks like elderflower lemonade, smells like elderflower lemonade and tastes like elderflower lemonade. Now, I quite like elderflowers, but would’ve like a bit less of that flavour.

Clear golden-yellow; slim white head. Fine, delicate vegetal nose that reminds me of summer wheat. No doubt it is the elderflower. There’s definitely an aroma of wheat, like for a Belgian wit. Taste is again, delicate sourish, not wheat-like this time, definitely flowery or fruity, bit like nectaring. Flavour of hay. Light to medium bodied. Nice tingling sensation, quite refreshing. Another very nice, remarkable beer. Laurent Mousson failed to convert me to Swiss beer a couple of years ago, Alex ’fiulijn’ is completely succeeding this time.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy blond color. Nice fruity aroma; sweet muscadel. Fresh beer, the good base is enhanced by a delicate elderflower note, persistent. A very good one!

cloudy golden-orange colour, almost no foam, very fruity aroma (grape, elder and lemon) with notes of yeast and cinnamon, sweet, fresh, slightly overcarbonated, sparckling and acid with a long fruity and acid finish - a very good and deeply balanced beer
