Voivod (304) - Como, - MAY 11, 2003
Golden colour, decent head, not really lasting. Malty aroma. the flavour is malty too, dominated by sweetness (caramel and vanilla). The aftertaste is quite hoppy and bitter and unfortunately very alcoholic. This could have been a great beer with a better balancement...

KoNrRiI (1093) - Århus, DENMARK - JUN 7, 2016
0.33 can. Clear, gold color and a small, white head. Aroma of pale malts, water, and damp. Taste is also primarily marked with pale malts, sweet and a tad spicy - nonetheless mediocre. A medium body, a slick texture, and a soft carbonation. Finish is medium long and relatively soft. Overall this is a subpar brew.

Joli couleur jaune très franche. Sans être une mauvaise bière, elle n’amène rien de spécial. Aucune subtilité mais pas non plus de points rédhibitoires. Trop d’alcool pour ce type de bière.

En øl der ikke smager af sprit, men har spark Meget frutgagtig i det, smager lidt mild og blød. Meget sødlig i eftersmagen.

Bottle from Mam and Dad’s holiday, France. A dark golden ale with a thin white head. It has a warming fruity body, toffee and vanilla flavours followed by a sweet, very warming alcoholic finish.

Nov 2015 - Can picked up from a petrol station (!) and shared in Steve’s car. 10% BB Feb 2017. Clear dark orange, dense foamy off-white head. Aroma is spice, clean socks, papery, honey, spiced crackers. Quite nice. Body is medium, tingly, slightly foamy. Taste is tangy fruits, bready malt, alcohol, spicy chemical finish. Harsh, dirty and metallic flavour. Holy shit.
