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.

Bottle at a tasting. Thanks Oren. Clear amber with a white head. Aroma of malt, caramel hints and some fruitiness. Sweetish flavor with malt, a bit of fruitiness, alcohol and mild bitterness in the finish. Medium-bodied. Not bad and doesn’t feel like 8.5% but lacks some character. 6/3/6/3/13=3.1

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. [thank you for bringing this from France, sysadm]
Pours a deep orange with a big, bubbly off white head with a slight yellow hue. Aroma is mild, some caramel, some roasted, some herbs and spices. Medium carbonation. Flavour is spicy peppery at first, then caramel sweetness and a spicy and oaky dryness at the end. Not really vinious despite the high ABV.
