2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: SEP 18, 2014 Flasche (75 cl, MHD: 06/15), etwa 2 Jahre im Keller gelagert. - Helles Rotbraun, leicht trüb. - Nase süßsäuerlich obergärig-fruchtig mit Karamel und herbem Pfirsich. - Antrunk brotig malzig und für meinen Geschmack deutlich zu süß, mit Anklängen von Milchschokolade, gleichzeitig dumpf säuerlich mit matter Frucht (Mandarine), schwach krautig-herb. Prickelnd rezent, dünnes Mundgefühl. Im Abgang leicht säuerliche, krautige Herbe. - Eigenartige, nicht recht stimmige Mischung süßsäuerlicher Aromen, zu brausig und ohne Tiefgang. Nicht mein Fall. - Eigenartigerweise schmeckt der Rest aus der angebrochenen Flasche am nächsten Tag besser als das frische Bier ...

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Great beer with an intens amber color and a fine beige creamy head. Good complex malty nose with outspoken malty aroma’s. In the nose you can notice hints of nuts, wood, rice crispy’s faint touch of apricot and honey. All the aroma’s are well in balance with a clear hoppyness and a faint touch of mint. The taste is very fine, complex and medium boddied. The mouthfeel is refreshing and malty, it brings some mintyness in the taste and the afthertaste is fine and elegant. The alcohol is outstandingly integrated is this top brew.
It is Frensh, and it is damn good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber, hazy with a nice head and lace. Aroma of toasted toffee like malts, some funky yeast, hint of hops, raisons and others. Medium bodied, lively carbonation makes it seem lighter, slides down the throat with velvet like ease. Malty flavor with alot of yeast elements, an earthy/rustic brew, balanced and clean, no sign of 8.5%, would not call it terribly complex but a well made brew for sure.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark translucent orange color with large off-white head and some lacing. Aroma was very weak with light malts. Flavor had light fruit and malt flavors, some caramel and spices. It did taste a little oxidized, I’m not sure how old the bottle was, but I think it would have been more flavorful if fresh.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
11.2oz brown bottle from A-1 To-Go in Gardiner. Pours a hazy golden almost red body with nearly an inch of off-white head. Smell is not overwhelming, but consists of spice, caramel, and fruit. Tastes fruity - like citrus, apple, pear... Some roast, yeast, and slight alcohol is apparent. Very dry, one of the driest beers I’ve had in some time. Fairly clean on the finish Medium in body with vigorous carbonation. A fairly easy drinker considering the abv. Not bad at all, but not necessarily something I’ll be seeking out again very soon. Well worth the try though, very unique.
