2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Gift from a business partner of Chrissie. I hate the corking in these Noyon beers. Not enough cork showing to get a good grip to pull them out, yet too high from the bottle to use a waiter’s friend corkscrew. It’s a question of push, twist, push, twist, for ages. Blah! The beer is pleasant, but very run of the mill. It’s a standard watery/refreshing wheat beer. A slice of lemon would really assist the flavours to come through. Best drunk to accompany food, as it’s too wimpish to stand up by itself. Nothing wrong here, it’s just lacking in impact or interest. I’ve had global lagers with more character.

Caruccia! Aroma cerealoso con un tocco di mais. Al gusto frizzantina, allegra con un tocco classico di cereali lievito e agrume (cedro e zest di clementina). Ma la cosa che mi fa impazzire è che tutto confluisce in un tocco di minerale quasi salino per dirla tutta. Ottima per rinfrescarsi.

Clear golden with a large white head. Sweet and fruity aroma with wheat and yeast. Also some citrus. No bitternes and with a soft body. Nothing sensational but drinkable.

20/12/2011 75cl bottle @ home - BB: 31/12/13 (2011-722) Thanks to Bernard for sharing the bottle!
Little cloudy pale beige to yellow beer, white small head, unstable, bit adhesive. Aroma: very grainy, oats, some flowers, bit fruity, coriander. MF: good carbon, thin body. Taste: malts, bit sweet, some honey and spices, slightly bitter. Aftertaste: spices, nutmeg, little bitter. It misses the wheat tartness of a good witbier.
