3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Red copper color, big frothy head. Apple aroma. Very good lacing, in fact prickly. Medium bodied. Malty flavor with alcohol, just a hint of smokiness, some licorice, apple and grapes. Slightly bitter aftertaste. A bit vinous. Not bad, especially for a French beer.

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2004 Amber colour with a nice head. Malty and yeasty aroma and a taste of roasted malt. Alcohol is apparent. Dry finish. The kind of beer you appreciate during cold winter evening.

Good offering. Amber in color, slightly hazy,fine head,long lasting. Aroma more yeasty/bready/malty.Tasted less assertive in fruit character than some Belgian versions and with a touch of earthiness I assume from the hops.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Grainy nose with dusty smells - kinda musty. Extremely fizzy with a deep amber-red color. Raisiny maltiness, toasted almost smokey or peaty tones. Tight dry end. Medium body and a medium-long profile. Impeccable balance - this is a beer with lots of class.
