Nose has some light apple, a bit of spices. This is more pronounced on the palate, which is white wine like in its crisp dryness and only minor sweet pear and apple notes accentuated by pepper. Overall, a lighter drinking beer than the style or ABV would imply; I kind of think my score undersells the beer a bit, but its just not robust enough to merit higher marks.

No tiene mucho aroma, notas a alcohol. Color amarillo, limpio. Sabor alcohólico, grano, alcohol... No destaca ningún sabor especialmente...

Bouteille 33cl, BB 11/03/2016. La version porcine de l’éléphant rose de Délirium ... tout un programme et le produit fini s’en retrouve marqué. Dorée, col blanc. Arôme au bouquet très basique, noble, fin fleuri et fruité citronné, minime, le malté reste au niveau carapils, épicé en rétro. Palais est de suite centré sur l’alcool, métallique, avec un profil chiant belge maintes fois revu et pas mal d’amertume se dégageant des grains. Houblon reste léger apportant juste le minimum d’amertume et de caractère. Bref, on s’emmerde, bière de masse.

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)

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
