2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Lasting off-white head covers this amber bodied French ale. Yeasty immediately and softly malty, the combination of which creates light fruity notes reminiscent of peaches and apricot. Simplistic malt profile, but soft and drinkable, not too sweet. Almost no hops chime in this pillowy ale of Belgian carbonation and medium body.

A Mes rate:
Bottle at LCRBM3. Amber with a decent white head. Sweet malt aroma with a little toffee. Sweet and almost sickly flavour that is a little cloying. Nutty finish. Not great.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
3rd LCRBM. Cinnamon and brown sugar in the aroma. Bittersweet, somewhat sugary and spicy flavor with cinnamon. Nutty bitter aftertaste. Somehow I’m not enthousiastic about this beer.
