Yes, in spite of France being somewhat anti-beer these microbreweries have popped up in the past 10 years, even in Île-de-France. This is a good thing; and once in awhile I come across another local brew that I have to try to see if they’re starting to compete with the proper European beer powerhouses of Belgium, Germany, and the UK. Pours foggy yellow with plenty of head, not quite solid, but good. Looking quite appealing. Aroma is caramel and syrup, very heavy on the nose, very sweet, slight grassiness. Taste is barley and malts, very un-blonde-like, but refreshing and slightly tart on the finish. This one grows on you, closer to a dark beer, but still quite nice and satisfying.
