Bubbly white head with light watermelon aromas. Hazy light orange body with sediments. Looks like organic apple juice. Fizzes in large bubbles. Thick in mouth but not long. Averagely Hoppy.

Flaske 0,33l fra Brune Rousse Houblon, Nice. Batch 100. Delt med Rune under rateseanse på Nerstranda 27 Mai 14. Veldig lys gylden. Lavt luftig skum. Aromaen var overraskende. Parfymert spearmint. Smaken frisk. Litt ingefær. Toner ut med litt mer ingefær. Uklar siste kvelling. Ikke så verst.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bouteille 33 cl du Marché de Noël - Cannes (F). Blonde dorée aux senteurs de panaché, douceur du malt, coriandre. Belle mousse blanche traçant le verre. Elle est douce, fraîche, très aromatisée citron-orange, avec du fruit blanc, coriandre, belle acidité. Buvable, sans prétention, légère. Pas trop demander dans ces départements brassicolement sinistrés.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bought at Brune Rousse Houblon in Nice, enjoyed at home
Golden hazy, white head that falls down to a excuisite low layer of white. Smells of orange peel, citrus and belgian yeast. The citrus is quite aggressive in mouth, this has to be an additive. (and yes it was). Unfortunatly it makes the beer taste a bit like dish water. For the rest it’s lightly malty and lightly sweet. The citrus additive makes a bad palate for me. I think this beer is ment to be France’s answer to Tuborg Lime Cut. Well they have beaten the hell out of Tuborg....but is this wat a craft brewery should make? I’m not the one to judge

Bottle. Pours a pale yellow colour with a thin white head. The beer has a real spice aroma with hints of coriander, but also their is plenty of citrus as well. The taste is sweet with spices in the background the beer finishes with a dry bitter citrus taste.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at the Saveurs d’Eléonore in Menton (it wasn’t exactly a bar, Natko :p ).
Poured a quite hazy yellow body with a thick white head. Very light pleasant bready/lemony nose. Spicy dry taste, some coriander? Light agrumey notes. Ok, drinkable beer and definitely a great find.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
09/10 A 0.33 l bottle in a bar in Menton. It poured murky yellow body with medium sized head. Spicy peppery and raisin aroma, yeasty, pleasant but quite weak. Flavor was subtly nice Bittersweet with honey and banana, some oranges (I didn’t feel lemon) and spiciness. But watery, like Belgian Wits, not regular blond Ales. That thin body can only offer you short and unfortunately slightly papery finish. Just OK one, misses body and some rounding.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33 cl bottle...pours golden yellow with a huge fluffy white head (again..over carbonation). The aromas were packed full of yeast, bread, followed by some fruit...mostly white grapes/raisins. The palate had a champagne like carbonation which actually helped accentuate the flavors of white grapes and apples. The carboantion also helped carry a lingering sweet tart finish. The beer reminded me of a saison without the spice and funk. Very strange, but very drinkable beer.
