Bottle from a French supermarket. Pours cloudy yellow with white froth that disappears to almost nothing very quickly. Distinctly watery but with fairly mild wheat notes, some citrus and a fair bit of spice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(I believe this is not the same as the brewer’s Tourone Blanche, as their website lists them separately. Will visit the brewery some time soon to check.) Very light yellow body, somewhat misty and frothy white stable head. Rich citrus aroma, lemon zest, fresh nutmeg, coriander, grassy hops and light crusty bread base malts. Crisp mouth feel, active yet pleasant carbonation. Light bitter, zesty taste, very refreshing. Clean, dry yet pretty long aftertaste. Quite surprising this one. It won’t blow you away but the well hopped taste, crisp aroma and dry ending are more than I expected and will be great on a warm Fresh spring day. (33cl bottle from Auchan in Tours)
