altonbrownd (5281) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - MAY 30, 2011
On tap near Paris Nord. Strange red body with thin head. But nose is of malts, hops and corny. No fruit nose whatsoever. Taste also quite malty and quite nice. Not really committed to what it wants to be though.

jaghana (5329) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - JUL 28, 2010
On tap in Paris. A basic beer with light fruit taste, light malty aroma, no hops and an acid presence. Really this beer is not properly done, either it needs more fruit to be really a fruit beer or it needs more body and malt to hide the huge acidity and be a good amber beer.

kopher (593) - New York, USA - APR 18, 2010
pours a pink-orange, pinkish fizzy head. aroma is herbs and malt and honey. flavor is similar plus vegetables. it’s a bit thin with a rough texture and bitter vegetable finish overall it’s ok, almost astringent though.

LeMat (19) - FRANCE - AUG 16, 2009
White head and a amber body. Aroma are too light for me, but taste ok. Maybe it was the end of the barrel while carbo was quiet flat

Oakes (14884) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 18, 2009
Having never consumed patxaran, I am a little bit handcuffed with this rating, but here goes. It is an effervescent pink-accented amber colour. There’ s a hint of pink in the head as well. The footy, dusty aroma is both floral and fruity. Firm, malty palate with slight berryish note and light florals. Finishes with a creamy, sweet mouthfeel.

Beershine (5219) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUN 11, 2009
Bottle at Sous-Bock. Lovely red-amber color with thick white head. Fresh fruity, almost lagered aroma with bright wild berry notes. Clean, creamy mouthfeel. Super smooth. Has some medicinal qualities but mellow. Berries linger on the tongue. Interesting beer.

bhensonb (13731) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 28, 2009
Bottle at Académie De La Bičre. Amber color with fluffy white head and chunks! Chunks are a plus. Fruits of all kinds and malt for aroma. Med. body with mild carbonation. Hint of sour. Apple, berry, caramel and nuts. Finishes towards dry. Didn’t get anise. Try this!

Svesse (7698) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - APR 25, 2009
(Draught at White Horse, Parson’s Green, London, 17 Apr 2009) Dark reddish amber colour with brief, white head. Fruity, malty nose with dark fruit, herbs and hints of plums. Fruity, malty taste with notes of crystal malts, plums and nuts. Medium body, low bitterness, fairly dry. A bit weird but defintely decent.

yespr (39547) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 29, 2008
From tap at a bar opposite ONeal in Paris. Pours hazy orange with a collapsing white head. aroma is mild citric and malty. Light citric flavoured to a mild caramel malt base. light spiced and mild bitter into the finish. Light and delicate.
