Bottle 50 cl from Hyperboissons - Doubs (F). Pale and veiled blonde with a short white foam with big bubbles. Fresh bouquet, floral and fruity with underlying hop. The taste is acidulated, floral with a bitterness of citrus and earthy which masks the elderflower and its fruity notes. A good Bitter, nothing more.
