2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle, 750ml cork & caged from Carrefour, Coquelles, France. Amber with white head, high carbonation. This is pretty tart, apple sours with a slight cardboard note, some herbs, fruity and quite sweet in the close. Not a beer that I find enjoyable.

Bottle sample at a tasting. Thanks zvikar. Clear deep golden-amber with a beige head. Fresh fruity aroma with some citric notes, yeasty esters and hints of noble hops. Sweetish yeasty flavor with some bready malt and sweet fruits. Medium-bodied. Refreshing.

At a tasting, thanks Zvikar, small stable head, almost completely clear pale orange colour, yeasty aroma with some herbs, flavours of herbs, tea, sugar, some metalic notes and a coarse alcoholic sensation. Unbalanced and pretty average.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A Mes rate. Bottle drunk in the car on the Eurotunnel.
This was a freebie from the first class lounge thanks to the legendary Harrisoni blagging us an upgrade to flex-plus. Straight forward drinkable amber beer. Biscuity malt, faint bitterness, very downable. Fairly decent actually, just nothing to get excited about.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Coppery colored with hazy appearance. Little yellow head. Fruity apricot-plummy aroma with spices and thin chocolate, nice hops also here. Medium bodied, slightly flat palate. Flavor has also plums with some grainy tone, chocolate also here. Aftertaste turns to hopped one, still somehow round.

33 cL bottle, thanks to my friend Bryan in Paris. Copper color, nice beige head. Caramel-malty nose with light grass-hop backbone. Tastes mildly sweet, malty, mild bitterness. Some cookie notes. Lively mouthfeel. Not bad, not too exciting either.
