Nate (3648) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 1, 2002
Had slightly malty nose, but pretty weak. Metallic tinge from the can. Nice copper brown/red color with foamy off-white, lacing head. Medium heavy carb and body, a bit oily. Pretty nice malty taste but not overly sweet. Good hops contribution. Tinge of salt/sour. Weak bitter finish and bitter/nutty after. Tasted a little metallic.

Dark amber, minimal head. Sweet taste, some alcohol. One-dimensional.

fiulijn (14350) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 10, 2002
Dark amber, brownish colour, no head (French pubs have low hygiene standards, you would not be surprised ;o). Simple aroma, some malt. Caramalt, caramel, some sweetness, drinkable but very simple. Ordinary palate.

UPDATED: APR 7, 2005 I like this one. I don’t drink much beer when I go to France, they are much better wine makers than beer brewers, but this one is a triomphe. Lots of flavor and hops, a well balnced sweetness and lots of ability to kill your thirst. Bon!

mwesth (279) - Skovlunde, DENMARK - JUL 21, 2002
Caramel, fruit, malt. One of the best sweet beers. A ’must have’ when I go to France

fraternie (814) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 20, 2002
Amber body. Burnt caramel malt flavor that quickly disappears into blandness. Thin for 6.5% abv.

Kåstå (1273) - Mol, BELGIUM - JUN 19, 2002
Red-brownish. The head dissapears quickly. Malty, sweet, flowery.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 13, 2002
Cola coffee brown clear, with small almost non-existant head. Mild fruity hops and strong caramel malt and boiled lolly aromas - didn’t get any chocolate. Medium body, relatively lowly carbonated, smooth, sweet start. Soft, less bitter, more sweet middle and slighty sticky cola sweet finish. Interesting, I don’t normally like such sweet beers but this one was pretty good.

Beautiful color, quite fruity and very sweet. Maybe my favorite French brune beer.
