Bottle from Saveur-Biere.com - Color: hazy golden blond beer with small carbonation and small white foam. Smell: sweet caramel and fruity notes. Sweet floral balance. Taste: medium body with caramel malt and floral taste. Really fresh and fruity. Good attenuation, wet hoppy bitterness. Aftertaste: wet bitterness, peach notes and floral finish.

Lightly hazy gold beer, good pale cream colour head. Palate is light and mildly dry, reasonable fine carbonation. Fluffy malts, a little lactose sweetness. Mild crystallised orange. Light spice and floral sweetneess. Light semi dry finish. Not bad, a sweetish fruity number.

Hazy golden with a thin fluffy head. Spicy, citrusy, slightly metallic. Sweet and malty. Light bitterness, soft carbonation. A bit dull. Disappointing from this otherwise good brewery. But I suppose this kind of beer has to be part of the range of any french micro, to be able to offer something for the layman.

Bière atypique Belle robe orangée Des notes d’agrumes prononcées Carbonatation trop plate à mon goût Manque un peu de puissance

Bottled 33cl. Pours a golden/orange ale, with medium white head. Nose is very yeasty, with a slight smell of citrus. Medium carbonation, aromas of yeast and citrus. Sweet body but bitterness is a bit to low for this kind of beer. This beer reminds me a lot the Duvel Tripel Hop with mosaic hop.

Bottle 33Cl. Pours clear blond with rocky white head. Yeast aroma. Sweet, medium body and bitter finish. Soft carbonatation and thin texture, well balanced.

Medium, light-yellowish head, shortlived over faintly orangey golden beer. Dry nose, bit hoppy. Dry leaves, sparadrap, camphor, mint. In the finish, I get honey - but as I knew, I wonder... In the flavour, the honey is definitely more obvious. Again dry autumn leaves, bit of caramel. Again mint/camphor. Light body, medium carbonation, bit watery. Not without merit, but nobody is going to rave over this. Then again, bière satirique, what the hell is thàt supposed to mean??

(Keg at Black Door, 20151218) The beer poured golden and hazy. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had citricness, orange juice and a hint of malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, Belgian style yeast. citricness, grass, malts, mildly caramel and medium bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. An hoppy pale ale with a twist from Belgian style yeast. Rather dull.

Saisony aroma. Hazy straw. Saisony taste, but sweet and corny. Palate moderate, carbonation OK. Boring and sweet. However, it covers the alcohol very well. Extra point! Still not great. And it’ clearly using belgian (saison?) yeast.

Draught at Brewdog. Hazy amber color, white head. Butter taste with citrus, hops, peach, earthy notes and grass. Bitter finish with citrus, hops, peach, resin and grass. Very nice IPA.
