Golden with a white head - Hoppy aroma - Nice malt body to support the hops - Hops with some bitterness in the finish - Refreshing and easy drinking and it tastes good

Excellente IPA/bitter malgré le faible % d’alcool. Gout persistant en bouche. Agréable surprise.

daje (2450) - NORWAY - SEP 1, 2014
Sample at Haand Festival 2014. Hazy golden body with a small white head. Flowery aroma with citrus, grass, sweet perfume. Taste of peach, banana, herbs and apricot. Good bitterness, hoppy fruity finish. A bit thin and not full blown in taste, but at 2,5% I think it’s masterpiece!

Palme (3380) - 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 (2781) - 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 (2130) - 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%.

On tap at Haand 14. Golden/ orange hazy with sediments and good foam. Aromas of hops, some pine, lime and ok fruitiness. Medium body & complexity . Solid bitterness. Enjoyable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
