Palme (3302) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 27, 2014
Sampled from a 0.33l bottle @ Haandfest 2014. This a cloudy golden looking one with a small sidesticking white head. On the nose it’s a bit tea like. Hoppy tea with a nice citrus punch. Not hard to identify the sorachi here. Smells like this is a really thin beer, and I would be surprised it it indeed is. Well, I was not mistaking. It’s a really thin and light bodied one with a above average carbonation level. Tastes nice. Mouthdrying and a tad astringent perhaps. Lots of sorachi. Tea and hay. Lightdrinkable. Not bad at all. 24.05.2014

Sample at Haand 2014
Light yellow, hazed, white head. Smell of spicy and herby hops, light malts. Moderate sweet, quite clean, some spicy elements. Moderate bitter finish. Very drinkable stuff

Arôme est tout ce que l’on attend du Sorachi, agrumes, citronné en note de zeste presque de citronnelle,L’attaque est vive et l’amertume se fait sentir tout de suite Cette Mont Salève est excellent ,elle est vraiment excellente, très bon pour le style.

tom10101 (2716) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 30, 2014
Sample from bottle at La Cave à Bulles during Mont Salève tasting (Paris Beer Week). Slightly hazy golden/orange with a small persistent white head and little lacing. Aroma is of fruity hops, grapefruits, malty notes and grassy presence. Taste is also mainly fruity with a good malt backbone, grassy notes, light caramel and light bitterness. Light body. Moderate carbonation. Dry finish. Super tasty for such a low abv beer. You would never notice that it’s only 2.5% abv. It’s super drinkable and quenching while being quite hoppy. I’m really impressed by Mont Salève light beers so far (this one and Mozaic Black Bitter).

Inbreak (2033) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - MAY 29, 2014
24.05.2014, 0,33l bottle sampled @ HaandFestival:
Small creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly sweet moldy - typical sorachi; dried tropical fruits, grapefruit, mold, grass, moss, light malts, soil, hints of coconut. Taste is slightly dry grassy, leafs, bark, moss, mold, soil, lawn, hops, hints of tropical fruits. Longlasting bitterness, dry mouthfeel. Very nice for being only 2,5%.

L_inconnu (59) - SWITZERLAND - APR 28, 2014
Une autre très belle découverte. Une couleur courante pour ce genre de bière (claire et un poil opaque), peu de mousse, une carbonation avec des petites bulles assez bien dosée. Niveau nez, c’est une belle domination d’agrumes (le citron en tête), et en bouche, on a droit à une belle note citronnée (tiens tiens ^^) qui finit sur une belle touche d’acidité magnifiquement maîtrisée.

MrHangover (2456) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - FEB 7, 2014
Bottle @ tasting, courtesy of Zer0. Pours a hazy blonde beer with a medium sized white head on top. Aroma is herbal, buttery and grassy. Defintely Soriachi Ace present. Flavor is very bitter and full bodied. Has some herbal after touches with a bitter aftertaste. Long lasting. Nice beer.

Zer0 (1126) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 7, 2014
Bottle shared at mrhangover’s place at his epic Eclipse tasting. Pours cloudy golden with a frothy white head. Aroma is big butterscotch, herbal, spices and some citrus. Moderate bitter and light sweet. Light body with high carbonation. Decent beer considering its ABV.

freretoc (631) - Besançon, FRANCE - NOV 25, 2013
Bu en bouteille de 33cl, je me disais bien que ça tenait peu en bouche, normal y a peu d’alcool, cependant la note du houblon fraiche et citronnée se tient bien, elle est vraiment excellente, très bon pour le style.
