[Draught at Bar Hop 2] Pours a very hazy yellow with a small semi-lasting frothy white head. Really nice aroma of sour apple and lemon, wheat, grain, yeast and light lactic notes. Flavour follows, tart and fruity. Average bodied. I really liked this.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml capped bottle pours a slightly hazy golden orange color with a finger of white head that settles to leave no lacing on the glass. Aroma is pleasant with some lemon and yeasty notes and a bit of funk. Taste is a citrus hop bitterness with a lemony sourness and a malty sweetness with some more funk going on. Light to medium body with moderate carbonation. A well balanced and tasty brew that suits the style well.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Assemblage #010 - Blonde, voilée, avec un bon col de mousse blanche. Nez acidulé, presque vinaigré, un peu fermier et de cuir. Goût légèrement acidulé, de levures de saison et de céréales. En bouche, c’est léger (je m’attendais à plus de rondeur), peu effervescent et un peu sec.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is spectacular. Dusty, woody and slightly musty with an old book and leather aroma..sourness is evident and tart with light acetic aftertaste. Mild grainy sweetness with lemony citrus notes, a pinch of spice and quite floral with tons of yeast flavour. Sourness is heavy and welcome with lingering barn notes, wood and earthen flavours.
