2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2006 Man, I hope I come across a decent bottle of this some day. So far I’ve had two, and they’ve both produced something sub-standard. However, I’m still going to rate it on that as I gave it a second chance at least. Poured a golden orange yellow with a loose white head that didn’t last at all. Had a lemony pilsenerish aroma with a touch of wet dog. Taste was very dry and spicy. The alcohol was overly present, and it had a bitter finish. Nowhere near the smoothness I expected from this beer. I’ll keep trying though.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2009 Poured from the bottle, very clear copper gold with a little carbonation and a large thick frothy white head - looks inviting. A clean and strong malty aroma with peppery notes and a yeasty follow through. Only slightly vinous (at 8.5%), with a strong yeast and malt flavours with that pepper also dominant. The long finish is slightly sour, but also a little creamy and clings to the tongue.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured to a golden color with thick white head that dissipated by mid-glass and left little lacing. Ironically, this is the first beer I’ve had where the head on the beer inside the bottle was bigger than that in the glass. Aroma was grassy floral hops. The flavor was more of the same, but a malty sweetness crept in to tame this down and leave a well-balanced, smooth finish. I’m not sure why this brewer chose to secure their beer with a cork and huge metal staple, but the 3 Monts made removing it worth the work.

Tart ,barnyard hay grassey aroma, smooth, slightly fruit sweet taste, really didn’t notice the alcohol to much,though I did feel a buzz coming on. A little spiceness,just a touch of bitterness at the end. Satisfying,but cant get excited about it

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear blonde with a very small white head that quickly disappears. Smells like a hoppy cider. Taste is mainly very sweet/sugary with apples/apricots and a very strong presence (more than it should be for an 8.5%). Soft carbonation. Feels syrupy and rough, even raw. The French make excellent cheese.
