Poured from 330mL bottle. Hazy orangish brown with full off-white head. Aroma of molasses, bready malt, dark fruits - figs, plum. Light taste, a little flat. Caramel and sweet roasted malts. A little lacking on the finish.

Bière sur lie légèrement trouble, presque claire, couleur de cuivre sous un abondant col blanc et aérien. Des arômes capiteux de fruits confits, de céréales grillées et d’alcool. Franche amertûme et une pointe d’acidité. Fine effervescence constante. Finale légèrement amère.

Dark amber color, with huge off white foamy head. Aroma is very malty, slightly sweet, creamy, with caramel and cherry notes, a hint of chocolate. Flavor is malty and sweet, carbonated, caramel, and a bit of sourness. Palate could be a bit thicker.

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.
