COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Blonde opalescente coiffée d’une généreuse couronne de mousse. On trépigne en humant ses arômes complexes d’agrumes et de fruits de la passion qui dévoilent les prémisses d’une satisfaction future. La bouche offre les mêmes fruits, parallèlement au goût d’épices produits par une levure saison authentique. Il en résulte une bière désaltérante, combinant avec un charme certain le flair du Nouveau Monde et la rusticité du vieux continent.

Travlr (19938) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 23, 2010
Draught at Churchkey. Amber/brown color, huge solid white head and a solid curtain of lacing. Aroma of white pepper and hay. Taste is an odd combination of sour and bitter with some gun metal, perhaps overhopped, or perhaps an infection. I’ll have to try this one again, either from the bottle, or closer to the source, to see if this was just a problem with this batch.

fiulijn (18103) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 17, 2014
Draught at Rogue Kitchen & Wetbar (W. Broadway), Vancouver
Murky blond color with generous head. The aroma is nice, fresh and perfumy, flowery, some jasmine and coriander. It’s a bit too much carbonated; soft mouthfeel, rather dry; strong wheat flavor, spicy, with some dry and bitter orange peel. The bitterness is on the high end for this style.
Good, but also somehow rustic, dirty, not elegant.

Leighton (17473) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2016
Bottle shared at Craft Beer Co Clerkenwell - London. Many thanks to Paul! Pours unclear gold with a creamy white head. The nose holds doughy bread, yeast, lemon, melon. Medium sweet flavor with notes of pale grains, sugary wheat, husk, light bitter hay. Light to medium in body with fine, spritzy carbonation. Sweet finish, phenolic, with more sugary wheat, lemon peel, melon. Basic stuff, but tasty enough.
