3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted with Beermouth. Enormous white head with a beautiful fruity and grapy aroma typical for the style. Wonderful "fat" yellow colour, quite appetizing with a freshy flavor with strong notes similar to a triple. Fullbodied of the style and lots of notes of triple-fruits. Wonderful!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33 cl bottle, ’bbe’ March 07. Dark golden with a myriad of tiny sediment flakes. Strong pearling and an almost creamy white froth that holds and laces moderately. Nose of hops and warm, sugary biscuit cake. Gets a bit rubbery on warming up. Dry, fruity (apples), relatively hoppy taste. A light acidity tickles the edges of the tongue. Strong carbonation, warm finish. Good, but misses the ’added value’.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very cloudy blonde body (almost opaque) with a long lasting large white head. Nose is weak and a bit spicy (coriander , peppery). Very yeasty and fruity with some candy/sugar. Mild-medium bitterness. A little alcohol bite despite being only 8% (disappointing). This is not a stronger Malheur 6, side by side they were totally different beasts, almost unrelated. I couldn’t decide which one I preferred. A good beer but it doesn’t stand up to their Malheur Brut, but then again nobody dares standing up to a brute.
