2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled. Thanks to Björn once again. Pours out in a clear pale amber with a low quickly disappearing white foam. A bit sharp and sourish (fishy) yeasty aroma with nutty undertones. Medium-bodied with quite an unrefined and sharp flavour of raw yeast, straw, metal and fish-food. Metal and almonds in the alcoholic finish.

UPDATED: OCT 6, 2008 Golden color, light head wich diminshes quickly. The aroma is yeastly, some spice. In the taste is yeast, malt, a little orange. A little thin texture, not so exciting.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2011 Bottle from Intermarche, Nr Boulogne, France. Orange gold with a white head. Aroma is sweet with a yeasty background. Taste is gentle, sweet malt and yeast, with rather too much carbonation. No bitterness. It’s drinkable, but not particularly exciting. 18.12.11, bottle. Slightly bready aroma. Still too fizzy. A trace of gin spices. More bitterness than I noted before. Rating:6,4,6,4,12:3.2

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A dirty hazy flaky golden amber ale with a thick receeding white head. A doughy malt aroma with light alcohol. In mouth, more on the crisp side, with lightly sweet malt, fruity esters, apple, and alcohol in finish. Boring French imitation. Bought at Sherbrooke Liquor, Edmonton, Mar. 2007.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Light orange body, thin short-lived white head. Tastes little more than a lager with notes of caramel and a vague bittersweet finish. Weak aroma and body. I may be a bit drastic but this is an insult to abbey beer: ingredients include artificial colouring E150c and ascorbic acid, which detracts from the overall rating. I should know better than trust anything which comes with a Meteor brand.

Orangey copper hue with a fast dissapating head. Fresh orange and fruit aroma. Fairly weak flavour with malt and yeast with a medium length finish. A reasonable beer.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours a deep yellow with a medium, very fizzy head that disappears instantly. Aroma has a touch of smoke, lots of caramel and maltiness. Quite round mouthfeel. Lightly vinious. Sweet taste with a cellarlike smokyness.
