Looks a bit flat, nice color. malty and sweet, with a good bitterness. Slightly boozy even though the abv is not that high. A bit forgettable.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Let’s see... I’ve never had a beer sealed with a cork before. 0,75l bottle from France. Pours golden yellow, with a big white head. It’s aroma is slightly dark, sweet with loads of roasted malt. Mid-bodied. Taste is dark, roasty sweet malt, caramel, medium bitter at the end, medium carbonated. Nice one.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
750 ml...poured an orangish - yellow w/ a fizzy, mostly diminishing white head. Again, I wasn’t able to get much on the aromas...some floral hops, spice, malts, grains, yeast. The flavor was dominated by the malts, but the spice and the hops sneak into the finish. I was also able to pick up some dark fruits (dates, raisins) and some yeast. Palate was medium bodied, kinda oily, w/ high amounts of carbonation. Very enjoyable beer that I’d like to try again.

Thick white, frothy head. Clear golden color. Fairly complex but a bit light on body.

2.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Beer poured with a golden color and nice white head. The smell was surprisingly alcoholic and awkwardly overpowering. The flavor was somewhat flat and unimpressive and left me an ever so slightly tinney aftertaste. A truly typical French beer that leaves me saying "what’s the point". Extra kudos for the sweet, majestic bottle.

Belle biere dorée. Petit gout epicé, floral et de grain. Legere amertume en fin de bouche. Tres rafraichissante

Bottle, 75cl. Pours a clear golden colour with a velvety white head. Aroma is pretty faint, not much going on. Taste is better than the aroma suggests. Quite sweet, but lacking character. Good beer

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear orange-yellow color with quite small but lacy white head. Aroma is sweet grainy malty and caramely with vanilla and a hint of honey. Flavor is grainy malty, a bit honeyish and grassy with slight alcoholic tone. Medium-bodied and smoothly carbonated palate.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(75 cl bottle at Ambleteuse, France) Very bitter aroma and taste. Palate is also overwhelmed by the bitterness. Not a pleasant beer in my opinion.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear pale body with a large white frothy head. Nose has honey, citrus, coriander and herbs. Taste is sweet at first and is followed by a mild bitter sweet aftertaste. After a while the bitterness adds up on the palate so this is best to enjoyed slowly. Carbonation is fairly soft and works well with this. Palate is surprisingly full and the alcohol is well hidden.
