3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours cloudy golden with white head.
Aroma is of citrus and agrumes, some orange peel.
Taste is hoppy, fruity (orange, lemon) and lightly spicy (coriander/black pepper) aftertaste.
Ligh, refreshing, and something really new and interesting in a blanche.
I am really impressed by the 3 Dames brewery. Some of their beers seem to have this signature spice and also an excelent stout.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy straw colour, nice fluffy but tight head. Lemony, yeasty, spicy nose, fruity, pretty intense palate, with more citrus, the mandatory bubble-gum edge, coriander and yeast. Nice dryish, noticeably bitter finish, with little sweetness lingering. Brave, dryish, very drinkable take on the style, led by a firm belief that a blanche can be more than just a refreshment. Definitely one of the best blanches Switzerland has to offer, along with BFM’s and Bière de Neuch’s.
