3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from La Cave à Bulles, Paris
Cloudy golden color, with a huge head (overcarbonation). The aroma is lightly smokey, earthy, and with pinenuts. Good malt flavor, with a dry side, with a reasonable body structure and good bitterness level too. Atypical beer, but well made.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle from Cave au Bulles. Hazy amber beer with a massive (severely overcarbonated) head that takes forever to dissipate. The aroma is quite hoppy though with loads of spicy Saaz-type noble hops over a softly sweet toasted malt base. Flavour is unusual in that is tastes much less hoppy than it smells. Soft sweet crystal malts with a touch of toastiness as well. Light aromatic hoppiness. Lightly minty flavour with some sweet toasted malt character. The perfumy hops integrate well with the softly yeasty/bready malt base. I wasn’t expecting much after the initial carbonation issues, but the beer is actually quite delicious. Sort of in the Belgian IPA vein.
