ExpendableHero (781) - Florida, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Pale gold, almost clear beer with a fluffy, white head. Aromas of apples and some spices. Tastes of candy sugar, rice/wheat, some banana, and lots of apple flavors. A bit too citric and sweet, kind of like an apple cider. Sweet, boozy finish. Effervescent with lively carbonation. Refreshing brew. While it is not a bad beer it does not represent the style too well. Average.

Aroma is light sweet malts, clove, funk and sour grapes finishing with a small bit of sulphur. Taste is sweet dark fruits like plum and raisins. Balanced very nicely with the hop profile which is clove and lemongrass. Finishes very smoothly. Appearance is a hazy gold with a thin lace head that retains fairly well.

50 cl can. Funny artwork. Pale amber with medium head. Not to complex and drinkable.Citrus and malt flavour.A friend of mine from Rennes told me that a lot of people in Bretagne drink this beer cause is a cure for hangover ( I fail to understand that)

MarkoNm (1746) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - AUG 1, 2015
Pours clear darker golden color, topped with a decent white head. Aroma is pretty obvious, mostly malty with yeasty notes, perhaps some fruity notes way in the back. Taste is sweet and malty, yeasty with moderate bitterness. Not bad, but still not what I’d prefer.

Can - thin pale amber with small white head, medium carbonation. Lemony - fruity aroma. Bit of a ting on tongue and in mouth. Taste lemony but canny and a bit sweet. Not brilliant.

My "copain" brought me one back from his trip to France... Wish he hadnt. The first swig was pretty "interesting", then all down hill from there. Reminds me of Kabukicho a bit... Not complete #SHIT

A blonde beer with a white head. A nice hoppy Belgian Strong style ale. No spicy sting but seems to edge towards Duvel territory. A bit of bread in the malts. Nice stuff.
