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.

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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled(750ml). -Golden/orange coloured, medium sized white head, perfume honey nose. Aroma is grainy and slight malty with notes of caramel. What a surprise that one of the biggest french breweries that brew beers for supermarkets, bottled a beer in this kind of bottle.

Nice gold color, very grainy, with sweet dominance, fruity, alcohol well hidden. an ok blonde ale, but was expecting so much more, a drinkable brew, but nothing great.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.75l bottle... unfortunately, not bottle conditioned. Poured a beautiful deep golden colour, with a medium sized thick white head that went away fast. the nose was malty/grainy, with notes of apricot and just a hint of alcohol... The taste was odd, somewhat acidic, notes of banana and alcohol, somewhat grainy ... the mouthfeel feels better than it tastes, nice and smooth. Not really all that special, and I expected more.
