3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Jaspers.
Pours a slightly hazy medium golden color with a huge white head that persists forever leaving copious amounts of lace on the way down my glass. Pear and plum with pepper and sweet sugar make up the bulk of the aroma. A light mineral and yeastiness rounds out the nose. The flavor is sweeter than I thought with the honey like and bready pilsner malt shining through. Light pitted fruits a touch of warming and a hint of pepper round it all out. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet slick mouthfeel. Nice brew, if it weren’t a country tick I never would have picked it up, but I’m glad I did, I rather enjoyed it.

Flaska i gåva från frankrike. Halmgul vätska med vitt skum. Doft av jäst, hö och lite sirap. Ren neutral smak. Eldig fyllig munkänsla. Kort eftersmak.

Clear amber with a small white head. Aroma is of light fruits, wheat, and some slight citrus. Taste is apple and oak/wood with citrus. Booze and strange metallic flavor in the finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Always looking for good strong beer to try, and the minimalist labeling of this one caught my eye. Took it home along with a nice bottle of Chimay gold and some Hoperation Tripel Cross. Pours a lager-like pale, clear gold, which makes me frown (if I can see through my beer, I am unhappy,) but it’s foamy white head has some rather good lasting power, which does make me feel better. Aroma of tart apples, cider, citrus; rather attractive. Flavour is on the mild side, though not in an unpleasant way; sweet malt is cushioned and balanced with well-matched bitterness, smooth finish without any of that gross bready aftertaste that megaswill lagers always have. Could never tell this was an 8.5% beer. Very good; I’d have this on a hot day without hesitation, and I do believe I shall use it to wean some of my acquaintances off their megaswill rubbish.

Couleur or, petit col blanc. Arome malté tres floral. La saveur se porte sur les cereales avec des notes de poire. Tres agreable.

Poured from 75cl bottle into tulip
Overall: This beer wasn’t what I expected it would be. It drinks like a pale ale with a strong alcohol taste. Its strongest attribute is its appearance, but it does downhill from there. Probably wouldnt have this one again.
Appearance: Pale yellow. Relatively clear. White, puffy head.
Aroma: Alcohol, pine, floral, hops
Taste: Pretty dry and slightly bitter.
Paste: Thin, light body, lively carbonation, alcohol finish.
