Vaiz (4172) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - SEP 21, 2010
This was supposed to be one of the best brews of France, according to the man who sold it to me. Well, it’s not bad, somewhat sour and hoppy. Loads of carbonation though. Tastes a bit like a cider. I liked it.

jaghana (5236) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - JUL 9, 2010
Bottle 33cl. An amber beer with medium carbonation. Smell is hopy and acid. Aroma is very acid and yeast like, so strange near to vomit, may be some infection or to high temperature storage. Quite citric and dry, very bitter at the finish, not really nice. Donno what kind of beer it should be, more a Berliner Weisse than any thing else.
