Bottle, Chris O’s Pre-NY tastings - thanks Caspar! Aroma is oak. Sauvignon Blanc grapes, bready yeast and also a tad floral element on the nose. Taste is Sauvignon Blanc grapes, honey, sweet malts, floral hops and also quite bitter. Sweet and floral and moderalely hopped. I really am not a white wine drinker so sad to say this isn’t working for me.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 13, 2010
In short: A different kind of hoppy beer. Very smooth highly drinkable beer.
How: Bottle (22oz?, 750ml?). Consumed fresh a few weeks after purchase directly in France. Tasting session with Montreal crew.
The look: Opaque dark orange body topped by a medium off-white head
In long: Nose is very tangy and fresh grass. Taste is orange muffin, a lot straws, yeast, a bit of earth, some citrus fruits, some grass. Very mild bitterness. The carbonation is smooth. Something about the straw-like malts and yeast made for a body that felt very light yet very full. Far from an intense beer, this one is overall very smooth. This was a fun beer, and one I could drink many pints of. This is a good beer and I don’t know why that beer got trashed by so many ratings. I think these people have a chip on their shoulder. The easiest point of amputation is the neck.

thebeertourist (5155) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 27, 2010
Bottle from Cave à Bulles. Cloudy amber with a dense offwhite head. Nice citric fruit aroma with hints of bread underneath. Herbal hoppiness that works well together with the orange fruit flavours. A bit grainy mouthfeel. Interestingly different IPA.

Bottle at a tasting thanks to David and Catherine
Appearance : Hazy amber, some lacing and small head.
Aroma : Fruity and hoppy. Very nice fruits. Some malt.
Taste : Very fresh and fruity. Carbonation quite soft.
Overall : Very very fruity. Quite enjoyable. Very drinkable. Maybe a bit simple or a bit too much on the fruit juice side. Still very enjoyable. A bit of a surprise.

douglas88 (7585) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 25, 2010
A really cool bomber brought back from France by Craig, thanks man. Pours a cloudy yellow color with a medium white head. The aroma is straw, grainy, yeasty, sweet earthy hops. The flavor is not a hop-head’s dream, but sweet, yeasty, here comes the profiling, but it tasted like a biere de garde. Nice and easygoing.
