4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Hazy light brown body with bubbly slightly off white head. Interesting aroma that mixes sweet, farmhouse yeast, caramel and cookie malts with forest hops. Mixes a bière de garde like basis worth dry hoping, almost like a less pronounced Orval. Strong bitterness with just enough malts to provide a rich body. And at 4% that?s quite a feat! Perfect carbonation and rich bitter aftertaste. Not super complex but an excellent drink and at the abv it?s very well made. Highly recommended! (33cl bottle from Bière Révolution)

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from la Cave à Bulles, Paris
Clean light amber color, bright; small head. Aroma of caramel and toffee, toasted almonds, perfume, light aroma of cereals too; very nice. The mouthfeel is dry and lean but not weak; the flavor of malt and cereals is quite nice, while the hopping is powerful and rather aromatic; the final has lots of dry resins; long.
Bold beer, with many interesting edges. Clean and very bitter.
