Bottle.Dark amber with thick creamy head. Aroma is earthy English hops, flowers, phenols and some light citrus. Taste is quite bitter, some fruits. Alcool is definitly present. Low carbonation and not nearly dry enough. Very different from North American standards.

Ambrée trouble, pétillance invisible, très fine mousse, arômes fruités. Bien houblonnée et caramélisée, rôtie et épicée, forte amertume (chocolat noir, pelures d’agrumes). Fait voler en éclats mes préjugés sur la bière française!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep brown body, somewhat hazy and with frothy light tan head. Looks really nice. Very pleasant hop aroma with forest smells, tropical fruit, bit of fermentation going on, humous malts as backbone. Very autumn like yet hopped and not sweet and dark like your typical autumn drink. Strong bitterness, with only just enough malts to back it up. Rich tasting ending. This might be the first French beer I’ve even had that is perhaps too bitter and too big hopped. Well, I’m not complaining! (75cl bottle from Bière Révolution)

amber color, with good offwhite head. Resinous and earthy danky hop nose, caramel, dank, earhy american hops. Nice body and slightly less than average bittereness with regards to style. A really nice surprice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to fiulijn for this one. Amber pour with a thick off-white head. The aroma is a little bit earthy and musky. Hoppy but with that dank sort of character you get from using a ton of UK hops. There is a little bit of light orange peel and some stewed fruit in addition to a toasted malt base as well. Some herbal/spicy character as well. There is a little bit of oxidation as well that lends a bit of a cardboardy character to the base of the beer. There’s a little bit of lingering bitterness as well. Decent brew, but could be better.
