2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle 33cl, kindly shared by Dominique. A cloudy golden beer with medium head. Aroma is sweet like, notes of grain, same notes as the beer after brewing and before boiling, very sweet, bergamote notes, floral, candied orange, medium bitterness even ginger touch. This beer is very unusual, not nice but not ugly.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Small instable foam over very murky body. Vegetable, yeasty, murky, sweet, pear. Alcohol heat, not too sweet, but oddly canned vegetable taste... I didn’t expect much, but with its poorly developed palate and bubblegum sweetness I can’t find any highlights at all really. Some superficially stupid ideas are really just that... (33cl bottle from a hamburger food truck in Bourges...)

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle picked in France in June 2013 whilst on holiday. Consumed at home Sunday 1st September 2013 Gold in colour with a white head, looks pretty good. Sweet malts waft from the nose, the flavour which with green lentils in I was rather dreading was actually ok with no sign (to me) of lentils anywhere. However I did find this beer to be far too sweet with just a maltiness to show, almost creamy with a little vanilla. A6 A4 T6 P3 Ov11 3.0

330 ml bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu, Tampere. Thanks Sami!
Pours a pale hazy yellow colour with a small head which fades quickly. Aroma of sweet honey, grass and some vegetables. Flavour of sweet honey, vegetables, citrus, some metallic notes and weak bitterness. Light bodied, watery mouthfeel and a citrusy, honey finish with some vegetables. Weird.

33 cl bottle (6,2%) @ Gastropub Tuulensuu, BBE 11/2013. Thanks Sami!
Aroma is sweetish with brown sugar and citron. Also hints of wheat and hay. Flavour is sweet with honey, some grain, brown sugar and hints of citron. Sticky finish with honey. Weird stuff, both aroma and flavour feel a bit like homemade alcoholfree mead.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
courtesy of Laurent Mousson - pale golden colour with a bad head retention; weird aroma with notes of cleaning product and alcohol; unclean malt profile, begins quite tart and malty, sweetish, moderately dry and slightly bitter; more notes of alcohol in the finish - strange and unpleasant stuff
