3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Green cork and caged 75cl bottle obtained from Noel Cuvelier’s Farm Shop in Belgium and shared with friends.
The beer was poured into four ’Schossbrau’ pilsner vase shapped glasses, ones I often use for sparkling wines.
The beer suited the glasses, a huge snow white head of large bubbles covered half the glasses, below sat a clear golden body which looked very lager/pilsner like. The head left a lot of lacing as the beer levels fell.
Very little aroma, some hop esters and grass hints.
The taste had a lager/pilsner/helles feel to it, hoppy more than malty. I thought it interesting, different and most enjoyable.
Easy to drink (too easy) and glad I bought it, another good French beer.

Une mousse généreuse, texture huileuse en bouge. Son amertume légère laisse place à une rondeur plutôt agréable en bouche. Une valeur sûre du nord

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
0,75 bottle as in picture, shared at a French beer tasting. Clear, dark golden colour with a loose white head on top. Hoppy smell, some alcohol present. Bottle didn’t age. Flavour has hoppy bitterness and some faint sweetness. Really curious how this would’ve been when it was aged.
