Bottle from La Cave à Bulles, Paris, lot 10A, bb 31.12.2013
Hazy amber color, with medium sized compact head. Very nice aroma, sweet citrus fruits, light pineapple, candy, some cream. Good malt and caramel flavor with some toffee; the hop provides first a nice lemony character, then pungent resins; long bitterness in the final, with an accent of yeasty astringency.
Fresh, a bit rough still, but very pleasant nevertheless.

My 2nd beer delving into French craft. I like my Citra’s anyway but the effervescence & slight yeasty tang make this one that I will be trying again soon
