3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hoppy grassy nose with lots of honey dough malts. Taste is lightly sweet, lightly bitter, some tartness, lots of citrus (mostly lemon). The malt is just a bit dull in the taste. Sort of a cross dressing BdG if you ask me. It looks and tastes like a BdG, but the nose was that of a hoppy saison.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
transparent gold, thin white head goes to a frothy ring. Lightly soapy, husky grain/rice nose, bit of milk and grass nose. Little lemon, metallic, light grain through the finish. Soft palate, short finish. Pleasant, most bdg in the finish than anywhere else, where instead it shows as a weird berliner weisse.

Capped 750 from Half Time. Pours orange gold with a white head. Aroma is near sour andbarnyard. Probably something else, but that’s all I can say. Med body. Flavor is grain and herbal hop. Very clean. Mayhap finishing with citric/grassy noble hop. Goes very well with food.

Bouteille 33 cl du Comptoir du Poulpe - La Roche-sur-Yon (F). Blonde paille à haute mousse dessinant des dentelles. Arôme fruité de malt, citron, miel, pain frais.

Un peu commun en France mais rafraîchissant et sympa à boire en terrasse.

Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours clear yellow with a modest white head and a strange banana-like floral aroma. There is a thin off-white head and a light malt flavor. Goes down easy but is not especially interesting.
