Cenzura (119) - Warsaw, POLAND - DEC 7, 2014
Aroma: fruits, caramel, grass. Taste: grapes, sour fruits, grass, little bit of hops and sweet malts. Medium head, average lacing and high carbonation. Easy drinking and nothing special.

joejames (175) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 29, 2014
Bottle to shaker glass. Pours clear amber, quick head with some lacing. Aroma of caramel and toffee. Taste is rather sweet with just a hint of earthy bitterness. Light bodied, low carbonation with a thin mouth feel. Finishes sweet with notes a caramel, yeast, slight metallic and skunk. Drinkable but ordinary European ale.

25cl flesje via Jumbo, Maastricht Alcoholpercentage van 5,2% Uitgeschonken in Belle-Vue glas Uiterlijk: amberkleurig met klein schuimkraagje Aroma en smaak: zoet, moutig, zacht Conclusie: te vaak gedronken, erg bekend. Als dorstlesser, speciaal is het bier niet ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rotaman14 (166) - Potsdam, GERMANY - NOV 24, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 25, 2014 75cl Flasche. Honig, Mais und milder Hopfen im Aroma. Der sehr süße Antrunk entwickelt sich zu einem herberen Geschmackserlebnis, mit einem langen, würzig-bitteren Abgang. Eine gewisse unangenehme Säuerlichkeit ist auch präsent, tritt aber nicht zu stark in den Vordergrund. Ist schon in Ordnung, das Bier. »Französische Biertradition ist besser/stärker als die Deutsche «. Na gut, wollen wir mal über diese Beleidigung hinwegsehen ;-).

rjplumer (453) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 23, 2014
Copper golden colored body. Light on the head with a thin film of carbonation. Light fruity tang aroma. Mild bitter taste that’s nicely balanced in sweet fruit caramel.Feels wet with an apple-like crispiness. Refreshing with a malty background.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear darkish copper color with a medium white head. A sweet malty nose, some toffee and yeast. Sweet, light fruit, caramel, yeast, a clear spicy Continental profile half Belgian ale half European sweet lager. Very smooth, drinkable.

GenkiGonzo (363) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 16, 2014
Draught at Pig ad Whistle. Amber colour with decent lacing. Aroma is grainy hops with some malts. Starts sweet with a slightly bitter finish. Not bad, but I won’t order a second.

vinivini (465) - BELARUS - OCT 31, 2014
Amber colour, moderate porous head. The aroma is quite special: grains corn, dryed fruit, plastic & a skunky note that unites all mentioned and that a can’t really define. Medium body. Sweet taste with a delicate sour note in the background. Grainy finish. The beer of its own character that not really strikes my taste.
