3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled, 750ml, at The Clichy Tavern, Paris as 3 Monts Grande reserve. Gold with white head. Quite a light beer for the strength, but with a really hoppy, lemony flavour, long and refreshing, but perhaps over carbonated. Some spicing and a little sweetness, a good interesting beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle from kihoskh. 2011 red stamp. Corked and cork held in place by a large metal clip. Very unusual, looks very rudimentary.
When openng the bottle some beer gushed out, leaving approx 60cl of the 75cl originally in the bottle. The gushing died out quickly.
Clear golden, smooth small offwhite head.
Flowery and fruity aroma, citrussy hint - aroma reminds me of a belgian blonde.
Flavor is yellow fruity, yeasty, faint citrussy or sour tinge, otherwhise dry, but sweet yellow fruity. reminds me of a messy belgian blonde, but in fact an okay belgian style beer. Better than the many boring biere de garde i’ve had from france. Alc. well used, flavor well adjusted to the strength.
