3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl Bottle (funny shaped thing) best before 17 Mar 2014: poured into a Duvel glass on 28th Sep 2012.
Huge, huge head on this pour: good job i was prepared and used the Duvel glass: looked good actually, the snowy white mountain of foam filled the glass before I could get all the beer out the bottle. I had the sediment laden remains later. The colour of the body was a copper/orange/deep amber and clear.
Mixed bag in the aromas: once the smells could get through the head I found some malty molasses and spicy hop notes, add floral and nut esters with maybe a cherry/almond tart floating in the middle.
The taste seemed more ’yeasty’ than the smell would indicate: again it was a mixture of flavours (like the nose), the alcohol playing its part too. originally on the sweet side the hops kicked in mid-sip and the finish was boardering on bitter. Interesting and well worth finding, yet another French beer I’ve enjoyed.

Pretty decent beer. Loads of sweet caramel with a classic twist of yeast fruit. Good but not mind blowing.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle @ Vino Bellissimo / Lima OH --- Aroma of malt and yeast. Hazy rich amber brown color, beige head, waves of lace. Taste is malt with a little sour mixed in that moves through a carbonated swallow to light hops and a hint of fruit. Pretty strong, and pretty heavy, but I don’t detect the alcohol.
