On tap at L’Impro, Toulouse. This was labelled as Pelforth de Printemps, but I believe it’s the same beer. Rosy hued amber beer, with no head. Doesn’t look very fizzy. Rather like an English Golden beer, I thought. Bright, breezy, with a distinct orange and peach aspect. Smooth, pretty thin and rather short-lived, but refreshing enough and pleasant, though slight.

I thought this was the best beer made in France while I was in France in the year 2000. It was fun drinking these while playing my wife ping pong in the outdoor garden in Ambrose, France at the bed and breakfast we were staying at. Nutty malty with a little bitterness. Page 358 of Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide and only 295 of his 500 Classic Brews to go.

250 ml bottle, poured into leffe chalice. Half a finger head, clear, ruby brown colour. Perfume dominates the aroma, there are some hops there. Tastes of sweet perfumed hops, some malt there. The abv is well hidden. Very smooth mouthfull. A pleasant beer, goes down ok.

Bottle. Nice amber color, head quickly dissipates. Very light and fruity. Not much hop presence. Im drinking it in a Paris bar so it makes it that much better! Overall not bad.

Bottle. Pours a light amber (surprise :-) ) colour with an off-white head. Strong sweetish, acidic, fruity aroma - almost candy-like, but not in a yucky artificial way. Flavour is equally sweetish and fruity, but it works a bit better in the aroma than in the flavour. Metallic notes in the finish.

UPDATED: JAN 31, 2006 This Pelforth is, in my opinion, their best effort at a good brew. It pours a medium copper with a slightly offwhite head. The nose is floral and lightly fruity. The mouthfeel is lightly syrupy, but the carbonation clears this up a bit, and thus the beer avoids any medicinal aspects. The palate is fairly rich with fruits, light hints of alcohol, and some hops presence that all of the other beers in France seem to have forgotten about. This is, in some ways, something like a Sam Adams Boston lager - some hops, some caramel, and a nice balance. The flavor, however, seems to change with your mood, so when your feeling cheap, it feels the same.
