COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
D’un bel orange ambré, la MacTavish s’écoule inéluctablement du verre laissant comme unique trace une belle dentelle de Bruges. Alors que quelques bulles s’échappent du liquide, des effluves de houblon vert, de terre ancestrale et d’épices se mélangent aux traditionnels parfums de noisette et de caramel des ales anglaises. En bouche, fraîcheur et acidité s’accordent aux saveurs maltées de biscuit et de caramel. Le houblon laisse alors une bonne amertume et ne confère sa verdure qu’en rétro-olfaction. La finale est sèche, subite et totalement désaltérante.

Orangée avec un col moyen de mousse blanc. Nez parfumé d’agrumes et de houblons. Goût d’agrumes, de houblons, résineux et herbacé. Très belle amertume en bouche, tout au long de la gorgée, et une finale sèche et désaltérante.

Holmen1 (4816) - Stavanger, NORWAY - SEP 21, 2016
Kveldens andre fra planke på Le Trou du Diable krankupp på Cirkus (Stavanger) sep-16: klar oransjegylden med fint skum som varer. Alle de fire pale ales jeg smakte hadde noen fellestrekk: en nærmest cremet munnfølelse, balanserte smaksinntrykk og myk, behagelig avslutning. Så variasjonene lå i humleprofilene. Deilige øl alle fire, dog uten å være minneverdie. Denne var preget av fersken, furunål, fiken, fløtekarameller og grapefrukt i deilig kombinasjon.

Bierdimpfe (349) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 16, 2016
Hazy dark straw color with powerful storming activity. Thick frothy 3 finger head, lasting around 15 minutes, creating strong lacing. Flavors of fresh flowers, faint grassy hops, caramel, lemony citrus with tropical fruits, and faint roasted grains. Strong but pleasant sweetness, combined with low bitterness yet highly sharp feel like a fresh Witbier. Slick medium body with very sharp carbonation. Light finish with a lingering bready butterscotch and fruity feel, with a faint grassy piney and clove aftertaste. Overall excellent craft, delicious and very fresh, a little thin but super sharp and zesty. Nice summer ale in a hot day.

Zilb (172) - Fontenay Sous Bois, FRANCE - AUG 17, 2016
Bue 4 mois apres embouteillage avec Sofia et Emilien en Bretagne. Biere ambree avec col de mousse sur 1cm et tenue moyenne. Carbonation extremement importante. Arome de mangue et d’orange. Amertume prononcee, mais bien equilibree avec le cote houblonne fruite. On dirait une IPA, et on ne sent pas quelle est si faible en alcool

Blonde doree, carbo moyenne, collet fuyant. Arome exotiques et resineux. En bouche le cote resineux est plus marque, mince et plutot courte.

Bawelt (554) - Lyon, FRANCE - JUN 17, 2016
Pression. Très agréable, une am pale ale d’école. Bouquet relativement malté, assez fruité (mangue, papaye et fond d’agrumes). Bouche à l’attaque ronde, maltee, plutôt, le côté tropical se ressent légèrement, pas trop mal.
