3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2011 33cl. bottle from a butcher at Ax-les-Thermes. It pours a hazy deep amber liquid with lots of medium-large yeast spots (a little too much) and a medium-high lasting light-beige head that leaves some lacing. The aroma is quite hoppy, with herbs, resin, some orange, caramel, ripe dark fruits, yeast and a little licorice touch. It tastes likewise, with some additional cereal touches, quite nice, being medium sweet, medium bitter and low sour. In the mouth it feels a little lively carbonated (ok), oily, with a medium body and a dry bitter-sweet finish, with an aftertaste of resiny and herbal hops, cereal, a little fruit and caramel. Presentation is quite nice (it lacks a customised crown cap, though) for a quite nice toasty beer.

0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
330ml bottle found at a fromagerie in Paris. Okay head, weird brown-orange swampwater body. Aroma of brake fluid, a compost heap, and smelly socks. The taste is mostly brake fluid, or perhaps a spiced-up gueuze if you will. Then, while you’re humming and hawwing over what brand of brake fluid it might taste like, you can’t help but notice the watery palate. I want to support the French microbrews, I really do, but putting stuff like this on the market doesn’t help their cause.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle at Le Sous Bock, Paris
Hazy amber color, with disgusting floating particles, too many. The aroma shows a light sourness. The flavor is simple, just some residual sweetness, and even if not too disgusting, it’s clearly spoiled by an infection, as I suspected from the aroma. If not infected, I guess it may be a simple sweetish Ale with a light fruity touch, and deserve a rating of 28/29.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
I had this in Paris. It was recomended by the waiter as a good French brew. But to my disappointment this was a real poor one. The palate and appearance was bad. Orange and thin looking. Lots of flaces of yeast. I often like that but not on this on. Flavor little fruity and yeasty. Aroma had some sweet marmalade to it.
