Cloudy dark copper with big tan head. Piney grassy hop aroma. Taste is very piney hop, some caramel malt characteristic of the style but still very hop forward. Was attracted to this beer in the shop because of the theme and artwork (sometimes a mistake), but it delivers on flavor and aroma.

By far best one of this evening. Opaque dark orange, strong hoppy aroma and taste. Lasting aftertaste. (Montpellier 201507) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

@ La Fine Mousse. amber color with a white head, medium duration and good lacing. Aroma has notes of resin hops, pine and grqapefruit. Flavor is bittery with a good presence in the mouth and nice aftertaste.

VDuquerroux (634) - Airvault, FRANCE - MAY 8, 2015
Bottle 33cL. Home. A brown orange opaque beer with a big white "omelet" head ; great retention. Fruity aroma (red berries, tropical fruits, citrus), resin. Medium sweet ; light to medium bitter ; dry ; well-balanced. Medium body ; thin silky texture, good carbonation, bitter fruity finish. Overall, a wonderful beer ; congruous aroma and taste ; just enough sweet & to appreciate fruity aroma.

lemoine (5) - Paris, FRANCE - MAY 7, 2015 does not count
Very nice aroma, but too much bitterness. It’s so dominant, it spoils everything. Lacks balance. Had heard lots of nice comments about this brewery, but I’m disappointed. I’ll try their other beers, though. Nez très agréable, parfumé, qui laisse présager de très jolies choses, mais l’amertume vient tout gâcher. Elle domine tellement en bouche qu’elle éclipse les jolies flaveurs que le nez laissait espérer. Manque cruellement d’équilibre. J’en attendais peut-être trop. Je suis déçu, mais j’essaierai tout de même les autres bières de cette brasserie.

Good-looking beer, rich amber with even off-white head. Nose is sweet, citrus, malt, perhaps a touch of blue-cheese. Palate is great, quite rich but with medium carbonation. Taste is bitter, grapefruit, not too floral. Bitterness lingers and gets under the tongue like roquefort cheese. This is very good work from a French brewer. Hooray !! At last.

Thank you sir! 330 ml. bottle drank outside post-Delirium Hoppy Loft. Awesome label is awesome. Smells like pure glue, some sugar & rotting malts. Taste like old school glue above everything else, old vitamins, orange peel, malt, bitter herbal,… Malty body, murky body. Not very enjoyable. I will give it the benefit of doubt due to the bottle being BBF 11/03/2014 & the ratings being pretty good. I doubt that all of these flavours are just the result of old age.

Bue en bouteille de 33cl. Superbe nez sur l'amertume et les agrumes, palais bien amer, sec et houblonné à souhait. Belle surprise !

Hier hat mir doch so einiges gepasst. Diese kalte Herzlosigkeit zum Schluss mit ihrer ebenso kalten Bitterkeit, eine Sache. Eine andere aber die wundervoll hopfig-orangine Aussicht in der Front, mit feiner Perlung und einer großen Süffigkeit. Top.

McTapps (5716) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - FEB 6, 2015
Bottle from trade with Calisky - many thanks! The beer has got a hazy brown-golden colour with an airy head and medium body. Aroma of hops and pine. Taste of hops, spruce, herbs, mild spices, citrus fruits, peaches, vanilla and oranges. Hints of bread. Easy to drink and quaffable. Good one.
