From bottle at Le Sous-Bock, Paris. Hazy, burgundy with a good tan head. Fruity aroma with hints of spices. Refreshing prune flavours, balanced by bitter spices. Fizzy. Interesting and enjoyable.

Bottled. Brownish amber coloured. Some notes of prunes in the aroma and in the flavour. Rather light and fruity. Some spicy notes.

A bit hoppy and sweet with something special that a can’t quite place. Not bad at all but no beer to drink more than 1 or 2.

jaghana (4942) - 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.

altonbrownd (4590) - 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.

erickok (4459) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUL 2, 2014
Amber bodied and stable head. Not unpleasant light malts, some caramel, biscuity, even a little nutty. Light chemical but nothing worrying. Decent supple taste of a simple high fermentation amber. Considering the price, location, etc I really enjoyed drinking this. (On tap at a random bar next to Gare du Nord Paris, watching the World Cup)

Marheb (3534) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 11, 2014
Bue au resto Gladine à Paris dans un verre de plastique en attendant ma table. Une bière aux accents belges avec une dictature du sucre candi intraitable et pas beaucoup de sécheresse pour trancher.

Non vedo perché dovrei stare a soffermarmi molto su questo...cocktail! Peccato, l’unica disgrazia de Le Sous Bock.
