SinH4 (1081) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 31, 2014
Cloudy yellow color with small head. Aroma is pure Sorachi Ace - dill! Herbal-tea, lemongrass, apricots. Taste is bitter and earthy-grassy. Very bitter-herbal finish, like chewing on a leaf of grass. Light body. Not a "good" beer, but interesting and good for your knowledge. And damn, the ABV is very low.

ruigo (1605) - PORTUGAL - DEC 20, 2014
33cl bottle. Hazy pale yellow colour with floating particles and no head. Soft carbonation and light to medium body. Fruity, grassy and floral aroma. Taste is strange at first, bitter finish and long bitter and dry aftertaste. Overall, interesting but odd beer.

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

Bottle at La Fine Mousse, Paris, September 2014. Clear gold with a big foamy white head. Herbal aroma - pine and rosemary. Bitter,dry and astringent in the mouth, medium-bodied, green and a little soapy finish.

daje (2717) - 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 (3603) - 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

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.

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).
