gegwilson (1455) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2014
Bottle from French supermarket. Pours golden and sparkling with a frothy white head. The taste is pleasant enough. Bitter with a little spice. I found this a bit thin on flavour, aside from some slightly metallic notes and some citrus as it warms. Refreshing and drinkable, but a bit disappointing.

chriso (7428) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2003
I found this one tucked away in a cupdboard. It may be a biere de garde but I had unfortunately gardee'd it for 5 years past the best before date. Nonetheless, it was still quite drinkable. Poured entrirely flat with no head but developed a petillant spritz on the palate. Curious muted apricot colour, no doubt due the length of time in bottle and not entirely clear. Nose was appley/cidery/citric, with slight vinous and malty undertones. Quite clean and sharp on the palate, with some sweetness. The sharpness lingered on the finish long after other flavours had subsided. All in all though, surprisingly pleasant for a beer 5 years out of date. Must get some more and re-rate when fresher. Bottle, December 2003. RE-RATE: One hour later and nearing the bottom of the 750ml bottle and I have indigestion already. The acidic/cidery character no doubt contributed. Deduct one point.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 18, 2008
Pour is deep golden with a thin off white head...smell is lightly musty but more strongly straw and farmyard but not in the funky way, in the straw and crap way)...taste is sweet with bread dough and straw...very thin and one sided...

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - APR 29, 2008
Crystal clear golden, with huge frothy head, thick sticky rings of lacing. Aroma has light coriander up front, faint grass, cereal and pils malt. Cereal, almost pale lager like sweetness, light bready yeast and not much else, cloying. No bitterness whatsoever. Average at best. Fortunately enough, this was a sample bottle from the distributor, passed on to me from local owners, so glad I didn’t waste the 10 spot.
