2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle 33cl @Leclerc Schiltigheim. A cloudy low amber beer with some gushing. Nose is on yeast. Aroma is sweet with yeast and ground notes, caramel malt notes too. As for other beers of this brewery too much orange / citrus notes. A drinkable beer but not unforgettable at all.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A nice pour, constant head, abit of earth and fruit to this one, a little bit of a alcohol burn, even though its only 6.2%, worth the price, but not anything worth drinking again

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Green .25 cL bottle @ 6.3%. Poured amber gold with a temporary white head. Aroma of caramel malt and floral hop. Medium body with frothy carbonation. It reminds me of the "scotch ales" the French produce. Alcohol is noticeable. Not bad for half a euro.

slightly hazy bronze colour with a persistent off-white head; correct lace; aroma of almonds and dust, creamy mouthfeel and with a low carbonation, some sweetness, dusty and almondy finish - one of the rare drinkable beers from this brewery

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearing to be heavily filtered, at the least, this beer pours a deep bronze-orange hue and is accompanied by a tall and creamy, white head. The frothy crown settles to a thin, yet opaque, layer given a minute or two. My initial impressions from the aroma are sugar cookies, butterscotch, rum candy and crème brûlée. With some warmth, the coriander becomes quite strong. Unfortunately, the bouquet seems somewhat stale and reminiscent of cabbage. Some pepper and lemon spiciness shines through eventually, but most of the aroma has gone way of the butterscotch and coriander by now. Which isn’t terrible, it’s just so terribly singular. The initial taste is butterscotch and cookie sweet with a light yogurt tang. Coriander is omnipresent in the flavour and the finish is short and not quite dry enough, though some pepper lingers. The weight is about average, maybe a little fuller than that and the texture crosses between being slick and watery. Carbonation almost stings the tongue. It’s not great, no. But it’s a helluva lot better than FC Metz so far this year. 75cl bottle, Duvel tulip, bbe 02/02/2008.
