I am very displeased by this beer. It may have been because of the import time and long time in the bottle. Beer looks golden, almost no head, very quickly dropped. Aroma was malty and honey sweet, no sign of citrus or cascade AT ALL! No hops aroma whats so ever. Beer tasted very mildly. Kept on the balance between bitterness and maltiness. But nothing special. Aftertaste was bitter. I will not get another one, unless fresh or bought in u.s. store. Until then, this is my score.

Big thick lasting head, stands like an ice cream. Medium hopped, fruity, raspberry, spicy. Great balance, sweet, getting bitter near the finish, lasting finish with citrus notes. Top!

Bouteille 35 cl - mousse trés éphémère, couleur orange foncé, grosses bulles, odeur de fruits, fruits de la passion, goût: fruité avec une belle notion de fruit de la passion, légérement sucrée, finale séche sur l’amertume très légére

12fl oz bottle poured into a shaker. How in the hot ham water have I not rated this before?! This has been my go-to session for a couple years now. Pours golden amber with a couple fingers of fluffy white head. A modest aroma of floral hops. Flavor is a solid yet moderate bit of hops followed by a nice cereal grain finish. This is the perfect session beer. The flavor is great. The ABV is just right. Classic. Just excellent in every way. I love this beer.

Une très beau Pale ale à la robe dorée, au nez finement épicé et houblonné et à la bouche digeste qui se fond à merveille sur le burger.
