3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.75l bottle from Village de la Bière Strasbourg France. Clear golden colour with a quickly disappearing fluffy white head. Fruity-spicy nose: peach, violets, vanilla and honey. Intensively malty with some very fragrant hops and hints of vanilla, flowers (violet?), honey, peach, mango and a spicy background. A very interesting perfumy beer, despite its 7% ABV it seems light and summery, highly quaffable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Lovely gold-foiled bottle from Cave a Bulles in Paris. Why is this a biére de garde on RB? Only because it’s French? Doesn’t matter. Pours bright and gold with a thin white head. Nose starts slightly skunky but that fades to reveal lemon, lemongrass and grassy hops. Inviting. Very light grainy sweetness, faint lemony tartness, and a moderate bitterness riding on sparkling mouthfeel, going pretty dry with a lightly bitter aftertaste. Damned interesting and refreshing.
