probstblueribbon (3179) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 4, 2013
750 ml bottle from LCBO, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. 15.06.14 L50.5.10.

App.: Clear deep golden/light amber with a so-so white head. Aroma: Awful...buttery, oxidized, fruity, wet cigar ash, alcohol, yeast, citrus, Belgian esters, biscuity malt, honey, cloying sweetness, slightly earthy, messy. Palate: Medium+ body, fine, somewhat relaxed effervescence. Flav.: Quite fruity, dirtier than the nose, sweet but not quite cloying, fairly pronounced alcohol, slightly buttery, oxidized, a complete mess; off dry with basically no bitterness and an oddly thin finish that leaves a little dirty, oxidized fruitiness.

At least I can keep the swing-top bottle. Drain pour!

ChrisSc (340) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 20, 2013
33cl bottle into tulip. Lille. Appearance: golden copper with puffy white head that quickly dissipated. Aroma: citrus, hops,caramel. Taste: mid sweet with slightly bitter finish. Palate: full and pretty rich. Carbonation gives good mouthfeel. Longer finish. Overall: I actually think this Is a pretty refreshing beer. Would probably be the best Bert available on a hot summer day. It’s not really complex, but tabs good drink.

Calisky (1333) - ALSACE, FRANCE - SEP 20, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2014 Bonne blanche forte sans pretention. Bonne carbonation, bonne balance entre sucrée et amère, et bon houblon. pas mal re rate 27/12/14 couleur orangée, légère mousse. Nez fruité jaune, levures belges dans la moyenne. Gout fruité, fruits noirs , caramel , malt, notes de levures, le tout assez leger avec corps moyen. Pas trop mal pour une bière grand public. Je laisse les meme notes

(50 cl can from Proximarché in Riez) Pours a clear golden with little, white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is somewhat malty and boozy. Watery texture, medium to light body, medium carbonation and a slightly sweet and fruity finish. Flavour is mostly sweet but slightly astringent. Not really my style.
