COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bière de blé classique Le Mans, or in short - Saku Le Mans, is a light wheat beer with a hint of fruit. It is brewed according to the traditions of French brewmasters and its mild flavour is spiced with banana and citrus aromas. As with other classic wheat beers, Saku LeMans is also unfiltered.

This type of aromatic wheat beer is quite common in France, where the local brewmasters have followed the fine art of fellow brewers in Germany and Belgium and interpreted that art elegantly to their liking. Compared to the classic wheat beers, Le Mans is easier on the palate, milder flavoured, more aromatic and has obvious notes of citrus in its taste.

Saku Le Mans is ideal before a main dish or as a light aperitif accompanied by a selection of cheeses or fruits. The aromatic wheat beer is a great alternative to discover, but it’s probably most suited to those beer enthusiasts for whom a hop lager might be too bitter and hard to drink.

Really chemical, too sweet, really foggy as if there would have been a second fermentation in the bottle wich is probably not the case ... Saku should keep on doing pils beer for mass production
