3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted under the name "Bière Nouvelle" 2006, bright yellow honey color, with a frothy white head, sort of barley malt nose, grainy, with a faint toffeeish note, kind of a corny accent, and a wet straw and honeyish aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate, with a crisp floral hops character, sweet pale malt, hay note, with an alcoholic strength at 8% well hidden, leading towards a delicate flowery hop bitterness.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy copper orange, with a small white head.
Dry, fruity aroma with a musty apple character.
The apples return in the dry, somewhat alcoholic flavor. Very much like calvados, in fact!
Unfortunately, it’s a wee bit watery, and has an annoyingly bubbly, carbonated mouthfeel. Quite original nevertheless.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy light brown with minor white head. It has an earthy scent, something you can find in the flavour as wel, reminds me of spoiled apples with a sweet after taste.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
orangey deep honey color with a large pillowy head. I could smell this from a couple feet away when first opened. Aroma is sweet like a combo of honey,mild malt,grains,yeast,hints of pound cake. Slightly dry finish. Left the lips a tad sticky. This bottle was 2 yrs old. Paid $8. Would not buy all the time but nice to have a couple stashed away.

Hazy and light orange. Fresh, inviting nose. Sprightly aromas. Light, fluffy, pillowy body was nice. Light lemon and sweet orange. Mild, cakey-sweet malts; very faint bitterness. Yeasty, doughy and fresh. Delicate beer. Pleasant to drink.
