bottle from Calais Vins, tasted together with cheeses from the North of France, e.g. Sablé de Wissant. Hazy straw golden colour, mid-sized white head. Fruity aroma. Spicy hops with some good, sweet malts with a shy fruity touch - this really is a good companion for cheese. Very nice beer.

Couldn’t resist a bottle meant for cheese pairing, bought at the Traditions en Nord shop in Cassel. Pleasant, sweetish, fruity nose with bits of appleskin and core. Quite malty, honey and light caramel, without being overly sweet. Fair bitterness and touch of alcohol heat. A bit of coriander, I think. With the cheese: sweetness works well with a salty selection. Big enough beer for it, too. Bubble action helps with the creamier ones too.

Bottle from La Fromagerie in Marylebone, eaten with cheese toasties! Don’t know why but expectations were low. Bright golden colour, thin white foam. Initially malty, toasted, a little boozy, firm, sweet. Some pleasant yeasty character. Light hopping. Very pleasant, a reasonably complex example of the style.

Medium offwhite head. Hazy amber body with carbonation. Wooden vanilla and cheese aroma with raspberry notes. Dryish spicy seedes of paradise, caramel and sugary malts taste with buttery grassy spicy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, buttery mouthfeel. Dryish spicy buttery vinous honey aftertaste with caramelly herbal notes. Nice, interesting, and unusual. (0.75l bottle, from Kihoskh, Copenhagen, last year.)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 75cl, corked. It pours a clear, golden body and a small, off-white head and some lacings. It is quite sugary on the nose, fruity and with a hint of spices. A bit sweet and sugary on the palate too, medium bodied and with a pleasant level of carbonation. Fruity and sweet flavor with a hint of bitterness towards the end. Well, I’m not sure it’s the perfect beer to have with a slice of cheese, but it ain’t bad either. 110722
