3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled, 330ml from Carrfour, Coquelles, France. Gold with white head. Good depth for a blonde beer, there is a spicy maltiness initially, with hints of yeast and grain. From there develops a lemony, fruity, light hop note, fresh. Easily drinkable and quite pleasant.

LCBO Spring release. BB May 2006. Hazy golden ale with no head. Rather chalky cardboard box aroma of oxidation, butfreshly sliced pears also noted. In mouth, a sweet honey malt, with light coriander, clovers herbal qualities, and warming alcohol. Medium bodied. The aroma took a beating but in mouth, still enjoyable.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy amber colour, thick white, persistent head. Very perfumey aroma, oak, lactic sourness and a bit of barnyard funkiness. Slight citric aroma as well. Flavour is fairly sweet, perfumy, cherry, black pepper, and bit of sherry-oxidized wine character in here. Full-bodied, yet refreshing. Light spice and a touch of juniper in here as well. Complex and very tasty.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy orange/gold in colour. Aromas are sweet caramel malts and spices. Flavours have the same characteristics as the aroma with more spices and alcohol burn. Decent.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Gold-amber colour, clear. yellowish head, slowly disappearing but lacy. Alcohol nose, dry, candi-sugar, nearly syrupy - and also something like dried moss. taste is very dry-sweet (candi-sugar again), slightly citrus-rind. Lots of alcohol, alcohol-burn, sugar becomes cloying. More of the same in the aftertaste. Unimpressive.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dusty cereal and hay reluctant to wed the comely, silky sweetness...Wild rice allusions spark the flavorful malt husks...Fizzier than the full Bavaisienne and less coherent in its intricacies, but nonetheless an honest rural raconteur...
