3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared with Hogtown Harry, GregClow, and Blankboy, courtesy of Harry. Light orange, big white head, soapy, creamy - looks good. Soft soapy spice aroma, with some citrus. Tingly light mouthfeel. Slightly stale and spicy/peppery hop. Odd grain/organic taste. Refreshing when cold. Hops come through at the end and on second sips - very citrusy. Not bad!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (500ml). Shared with blankboy, GregClow and tupalev - my bottle, via trade with Lubiere. Murky orange with large chunks at the bottom, large foamy lasting off-white head. Dry, herbal (almost sour) hops, very light malt - it’s a bit sour, but quite different. Scorched dry funky hops, light citrus malt, yeasty - sort of UK style, very grainy. Mouthfeel is astringent, average body, long bitter finish, longer as it warms. Really interesting.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
The bitter taste of an I.P.A. that I like. The after taste does not last long. The color is a nice orange look. A good beer but not my favorite I.P.A.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Un peu amère, légé en goût, pas la meilleur IPA. Par contre elle n’est pas mauvaise à boire.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Huge very coarse white head, hazy brown body. Fruity, caramelly malty aroma with citrusy hop notes and some cardboard. Taste is disturbed by excessive carbonation. Taste is sourish and smoky, with a bitter, smoky aftertaste. Something ash-like in the mouthfeel. Another dud from La Barberie, I’m afraid. They must be my least-favourite brewery; good thing this was the last of the LB bottles.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
A muddy orange beer with a fluffy grey head. Sourish citrus and orange aroma with hoppy hints. Thin fruit and yeast flavor with a note of herb and an infected tone. Hmmmmm.....

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle. Bitter beer (like most IPA). Cloudy beer, yellow-orange color. Medium carbonation. If you like IPA’s, you’ll like this one.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
odeur de pamplemousse, saveur d’agrumes, très amère. corps mince, orange avec une mousse étonnement soutenue. Pas mauvaise mais ce n’est pas vraiment mon style de bière.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Orange coloured beer with a heavy yeast suspension. Thick white lacing, sticky. Aroma is very citrusy, fresh orange and grapefruit. Some bready malts, a bit of biscuity character and also a slight cheesy note. I suspect this is infected. Flavour is a bit phenolic, some C hops and light malty character. Thin body. Still, not what it should be.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
A hazy dark orange beer with a huge orange head with spots in it from yeast sediment, which also leaves some sediment floating around. The aroma is hoppy and very sharp. The flavor is slightly sour and dusty and quite hoppy, leading to a dry end. The body is thin.
