3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle 25cl, a copper beer with high carbonation and good head and lacing. Nose is hopy and red fruit like. Aroma is on vegetables, hopy with metallic notes, some diacetyle and fresh apple notes, medium sweet and malty, very bitter at the finish with peppery hops and again a vegebable note. Expected something more interesting.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home in London. Pours perfectly clear yellow-gold, effervescent, with a large, frothy white head. Nose holds lots of white bread, dough, some vanilla frosting. Medium to big sweet flavor, lots more simple, doughy-bready pale malts, hints of orange cream soda, white sugar, hay. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Light warmth to finish, some overripe lemon, wet dough. Starts alright but I’m not crazy about the finish.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle, 33 cl. Straw golden with floating impurities and a tall, frothy head, quickly diminishing. Sweet, strang hayish nose, slightly perfumy, with an alcoholic note. Fusty, artisanal oily flavor of fermented hay. Sweet. No bitterness. Flat. Odd. Not for me.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
September 2008: from BA. Green 75cl cork and caged bottle, drank two months after its BBD.
Poured into four tulip shaped glasses, the first three showed a clear golden Blonde beer with very little head. The last pour produced a cloudier body with a stronger smell and taste (as you would expect). I prefered the last pour!
Wheat and dog biscuits came to mind in the aroma, then a more general farmyard grain smell took over.
French beers are getting better (the ones I try anyway), this one doesn’t set the world alight, but it does have something about it.
I liked the sweet aftertaste and its sour start, it just failed in the body fullness for me, but overall, OK.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml corked bottle pours a pale golden color with a huge white head that leaves some really nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is light fruits and malts with some spicy hop notes. Taste is sweet malts and fruit with a spicy hop finish and traces of yeast. Medium body and lively carbonation provide a nice tingle on the tastebuds. A very nice blonde ale which was very much appreciated.
