3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
750->snifter: Pours a spare, creamy, white, but diminishing head that exhibits fair lacing atop a clear, amber body. Aroma is of cookie, caramel, banana, and grape. The body is light, the texture is thin, and there is a soft carbonation with an astringent finish. Flavor’s duration is average and lightly sweet. Not a horrible beer, but given the price, I’d be hard pressed to try it again.

Pours medium gold with a medium long lasting white head. Aroma of bananas and bread with some white wine and a slight herby grassiness. Flavor is yeasty and bready with a dry finish. Slightly metallic, but that waned as it warmed. Not a standout.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle-conditioned, 750mL. Clear orange-golden color, sparkling frothy head with lots of lace -- beautiful although plain-looking beer. Flowery aroma, somewhat spicy. Reminiscent of a Belgian strong ale. Hoppy, spicy flavor. Not very malty but with a nice sweetness. Dry aftertaste and nice lastying hop bitterness. Body was a little thin. Went well with a homemade merguez quiche due to the spicy nature and alcoholic body that cut through the cheese and sausage fats. A good, simple, drinkable, and widely-available French beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Large white head, fainting quickly with light cereals aroma. Body is clear and yellow. Taste not bad but too light in hops and bitterness and too basic with remaining barley taste.

Yellow orange pour, nice white head with a touch of lacing. Hop forward nose, grassy with a hint of vanilla. Flavor is grainy and dry with grassy hop notes. Body is soft with mild carbonation. Kind of bitter and dry on the finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a lovely dark orange amber color with a thin but consistently there head. Aroma is faint hop bitter, sour green apple skin, tart, malty, bready, fruity, yeasty cereal, faint lemon finish. Taste is sweet bread, malt, lemon water, faint fruit, green apple, orange. Mouthfeel is somewhat thick despite adequate carbonation. First of the style so I’m not sure but it seemed somewhat flat.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Flat nose like wet paper. Golden color is the best part of the beer. Aroma of grapefruitbitters in smell taste and very harsh bitter aftertaste. Not a pleasant beer at all.
