2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Yamaya. Estery, fruity nose, candi sugar, honey, peach, some banana. Pale amber color with a fine head.
Sweet, fruity flavor, sugary, non-descript but not bad. A typical abbey blonde: too swet, somewhat boring. Very estery, with a somewhat dry finish, some bitterness. Ok.

darker than one is used to for the style, and fairly flavorful as well. better than average, but not wuite a standout, as it’s #2 rank implies. good dose of hopping and crisp malt sweetness make this a nice summer quencher."
not as good on repeat visit.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Very clean body and fizzy bubbly ugly head. Very sweet grainy smell, cheap, sugar water, urine. Taste is even more like sugar water without any character and way too sweet. Of course no hop to be found at all. What a terrible brew. Looks horrible, smells horrible, taste crap. I should have know better than wanting to tick another beer. (50cl can at Auchan in Tours)

Bottle. Aroma of yeast, some floral notes, and some rust. Orangeish-brown. Mild honeyish sweetness; mid palate is much the same; final is mildly sweet and continues the yeast. Medium body. Okay, but a bit bland. Not much complexity. Drinkable.
