33cl bottle. Clear golden colour with a thin white head. Citrus, zest and pineapple in the aroma. Average carbonation and light body. Taste is bitter with fruity and malty notes. Overall, a good beer.

Renobob (1612) - Besançon, FRANCE - JAN 30, 2016
Bue en bouteille de 33cl. Couleur jaune trouble. Peu de CO2. Nez mangue, peu corpulente, légère, fines bulles. Amertume moyenne. Bel équilibre, un peu trop light.

procraste (471) - FRANCE - DEC 10, 2015
C’est sympathique. Amère et sèche avec des notes citronnées. Une arrière bouche amère et tonique. Quelques notes fruitées sur la fin. Un style assez "pointu" , genre "petit coup de fouet"

77ships (7432) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - NOV 29, 2015
Sampled 330 ml. bottle @ “Vini Birre Ribelli 2015”. Pale citrus golden, bubbles. Nose is citrus lemon hops, zest, quite juicy. Taste is floral, lemon, juicy hops, dash too yeast, less expressive than my deScription sounds, felt a bit muted. Body is juicy hops & yeast, decent but I feel like it could have more expressive.

Juicy and fruity aroma. Sprightly texture. Only mildly bitter. A truly special bitter, indeed.

davidtjm (1074) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUL 5, 2015
Bottle. Pour is murky gold with a thin head, aroma is fruity, sweet, juicy pineapple. Taste is bitter, fruity, thin malty body, light pineapple. I would regard this as a session IPA and a very nice one

JulienHuxley (5522) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 17, 2015
Bottle from De Molen beershop. Gold/amber pour with white head, pretty tenacious. Aroma is nice and hoppy, perfumy floral hop, definitely some Mont Saleve signature but not cloying like some of their beers, pine, cat piss, tropical notes. Taste is rather bitter, malt profile is light and biscuity, light vegetal hop notes, leafy. Palate is light bodied, just a tad watery, could use a bit more body, good carbonation.

On tap at Festibière festival in Gembloux. Nice bitter light beer that reminds me of de la Senne style. Nice!

on tap at braukunst munchen 2014. yellow with a light haze and a large lingering white head; zesty citric aroma with hints of wildflowers; crisp yet subtle, lightly salty with a lingering lemon pip aftertaste. delicious

weark (628) - Morges, SWITZERLAND - OCT 9, 2013
Bottle from Au Grain d’Orges - Cleare pale color, frothy head, good lacing - coconut( similar to sorachi ace if it’s not this one), apple, citrus aroma - coconut, citrus flavor with hints of malt - fizzy carbonation, good bitterness, light body, thin, long hoppy dry bitter finish - really good beer, i’m really impressed by the "low alcohol" range of Brasserie du Mont Salève, another good realisation
