2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
10th April 2009
Bottle from La Cave A Bulles. Hazy amber beer. Very soft malty beer with a hint of caraway plus some hoppy grapefruit bitterness. Not bad but seems to hang it’s hat on being a ’bio’ beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle (Alvinne Webshop, Belgium)
7 Lovely light refreshing floral aroma, slight fruitiness, apples.
4 Slightly hazu straw colour, huge rocky then persistent and self-supporting fluffy head. Initially poured both glasses as clear as possible, but added the non-chunky yeast to one glass later in order to compare.
7 Light grainy and slightly appley retronasals. Uplifting and refreshing. Lightly fruitiness to the body, white grape, but a lovely light bready graininess. With more yeast, it’s mellower, but not any less in flavour, it brings out the light breadiness.
4 Refreshing palate, lively carbonation. Finish mostly follows the taste, but has a lovely gentle noble hopping to it, a touch of white pepper that lasts for ages. With more yeast, the finish seems enhanced.
15 It’s rare to get such a non-big beer be so worthy. Everything you’d want in such a beer is there in sufficient quantities, and they all help to reinforce each other rather than fighting against each other. Super blond ale. Don’t pour the crap in, but don’t be afraid of the light yeast that doesn’t mind hanging in suspension.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled at Bishop’s Arms Gustav Adolfs Torg, Malmö. Hazy golden, rich firm head. Milky nose with some grass that transitions into dough. Fairly light bodied, yet with evident depth in the malt structure. Spicy grassy bitterness cuts through in the finish. Manages to combine rusticity and elegance in a typical north French way.
