4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bonne bière blonde. Assez légère en bouche.
This light ale has a deep golden colour with a smooth, frothy head. It is very perfumed with an unmistakable hint of aromatic hops and a fruity (citrus) note from the spices used in production. The body has an intense yet distinctive bitterness and a strong malty taste which is a delight to the palate. The overall effect, however, is a slight dryness and hoppiness.

Barcode wouldn't scan - think this is the right one. ABV is 7.5%. Looks amazing. Straw yellow which pure white fluffy head - disappeared too quickly. Smells good and has a lovely clean taste and aftertaste. Has a "Belgian" hint to the aftertaste which borders between the interesting and strange. Great carb. A little like a light duvel - but that is doing it a dis-service. Tasty beer!

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A lovely blonde that has the right combination of some bitter yeast aroma’s and some light sweetness.
It has a light body, seeing that it still is a blond, but quite a complex texture and a long finish!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle @ Wellington Arms, Bedford. Light yellow with a whirlpool of carbonation. The sign of a great beer (as opposed to one that is merely good) is one that you are happy to smell for a good 10 minutes, breathing in an exciting and unique aroma. Fresh and funky, hints of seawater and TCP. The scent of heaven. Taste is even better: a balanced salty sweetness with a bittersweet finish. Palette is like the kiss of one’s own true love.
