UPDATED: MAR 12, 2018 A la pression. Sous titré wheat IPA. Blonde dorée. Mousse blanche tenue correcte. Transparente. Très curieux pour une bière de blé. Problème dans la qualité de la céréale ? Bière filtrée ? Nez assez peu expressif, légèrement piquant. A la dégustation on ne sent pas du tout le blé. Une forte amertume sans nuance et sans arôme. Bière sans grand intérêt.

A malty and grassy flavored ipa. Has a Pilsner flavor to it as well. No real citrus in this one. Pours copper in color with a thick cream head. Not bad for a foreign ipa. Had in myrtle beach.

11oz bottle 11/2/14 (Courtesy of TerryR)-40° in Shaker-Pours a murky orangish yellow with a small white head. Aroma of hops and wheat. Taste of hops, citrus, and malt. This medium bodied brew is a bit different but not necessarily in a bad way. Didn’t know what to expect.

Capped 750 from Whole Foods in Sacramento, CA. Pours translucent gold with a slight white head. Aroma of light stone fruit and mixed hop. Mild caramel. Med body, at least. Flavor is light stone fruit, with an unripe note, and some floral hop. Mild caramel. It’s fruity/bitter, and really quite nice. Tho far from a NW hop monster. crossovert (15837) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 29, 2014
750ml bottle. Golden amber pour, large quickly dissipating off white head. 1spice and citrus in the aroma , slight cider, sweet malt. Flavor is citrus pith, some herbs, really nice actually for an ipa that has crossed the atlantic. Certainly a dirtier example than what is made here but pleasantly surprised.

750ml bottle pours out a crisp golden topped with a long lasting white head. Nose is spice belg yeast and a grapefruit pithy. Taste is as the nose with a good touch of grapefruit hops and some French goodness. shrubber85 (12532) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Bottle. Orange malt and dry grapefruit peel aroma. Cloudy golden yellow with large head. Sweet orange malt and mildly bitter herbal lemon peel flavor. Not bad. popery (2171) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 21, 2014
The beer pours a nice medium-light amber with a big, puffy white head. It’s quite cloudy. Very good head retention. Mix of bubble sizes, which I realize is the sort of info everyone wanted to know about this beer. The aroma is a mix of hops with some gentle caramel malt and a dose of yeastiness. The hops smell of apricots, tangerines, juniper, grapefruit. Pretty fruity. The taste is relatively dry. The yeast presence is pretty strong and helps to bring out the bitterness of the beer, which is still quite mild, relative to the style. Bready malt, in the background but still present enough. Mouthfeel is light with gentle effervescence. Finish is long and lightly bitter with grapefruit pith. The beer is fun but too mild. The hops aren’t terribly juicy, and the yeast is too neutral to come in and save the day. Still, it’s fun to try a French take on the style. To be fair, there definitely could be an issue of freshness, but I am drinking this beer fairly soon after my local store received it.
