3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Huge frothy head that shrinks a bit but doesn’t go away. It forms laces on the top empty part of the glass and covers the surface efficently. The brew is light and a bit yeasty, sightly hazy and with a spritzer-vitality that feels more familar with cider. There are green apples in the flavor as well, but also lots of hops and herbal tones. The strong alcohol level is well disgusied, a little treacherous, because the bottle is big...

Bottle 75 cl (edition 2009). Pours a pretty pale, hazy amber with a medium white head and an aroma of yeast, orange peel, dried prunes and sweet malts. The flavour has notes of caramel, herbs, lots of malts, sweet fruits and malts. A long sweet aftertaste. Really nice beer, allthough it’s not rally special

The appearance of this beer was the first clue of how classy and remarkable it would be. Lasting, foamy, billows of puffy head. Some peppery, mossy, slightly sour (earthy) aromatic notes. Tasted some dust and metallic flavors as well. Malty thickness (rye bread)comes out as it warmed, was hardly apparent when chilled.

Pours a clear amber color with a big, lingering white head. The aroma is funky and somewhat musty, with touches of hops, fruit, and malts. Medium body with high carbonation, the flavor malty and peppery with a touch of apples. Highly drinkable and very delicious, this is probably the best French beer I have had.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Édition 2010 : bière cristalline couleur d’ambre léger coiffée d’un ample col blanc laissant une large dentelle au verre. Des arômes remplis d’esters fruités, d’alcool avec une trace de muscade. Peu amère avec un peu de sucre résiduel. Bière généreuse, à la texture lisse et à l’effervescence douce. Elle se termine assez rapidement sur un filet d’alcool et des arômes légers.

Bottle: Poured a straw color with a nice amount of head. The aroma was grass, mustiness, and spice. The flavor was smooth, slight apple, slight pear, grass, funk, and yeast. Overall, a really nice tasty beer I wouldn’t hesitate to order again.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very nice warm golden-blond beer with fluffy snow white head. Great malty aroma with a refreshing thouch of grass, citrus, flowers and some fruits. Also some sweetness of caramel malts and buttercakes. The taste is malty, light fruity and has a refreshing carbonation with touches of fresh herbs some mint and lemongrass. It ends with a nice fruity bitterness of hops.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2011 vintage. Bottle 750 ml. Bought at grocery store. Served in Tulip. Pours clear amber with very thick frothy white head, long lasting. Aroma: fruits, malt, yeast. Taste is very fruity and malty. Lacks of balance as it is a little too much on sweetness. Medium to full bodied. Some warming alcohol, as we expect from a 10 % abv. Overall, a good strong beer, a bit heavy but still enjoyable.
