750ml bottle ([email protected]
Slightly grungy malty aroma, some hay. Soft palate. Gentle taste, some grassy hay bitterness. Alas a little dull for this time of the evening (late, fatigue setting in).
Bottle at the ChrisO Snow Tasting, London - thanks to Ian! Pours perfectly clear yellow with a light, white cream head. Big perfume aroma, some white dough and rotting fruits. Big sweet flavor with further perfume character, some hay. Medium to full bodied with average carbonation. Lightly warming to finish with mild bitter hay, perfume and white sugar. Tasty, interesting.

Bottle at ChrisO Snow Tasting, thanks to Ian. It pours golden yellow with a tiny white head. The nose is quite clean... grass, soft fruit, pear, melon and subtle herbal accents. The taste is initially relatively sweet, then dough, pear, melon, herbal, spice, metal and some bitterness with a dry, lightly spicy finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Ok, but definitely not my thing. mR_fr0g (12068) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2013

Draught (La Tireuse, Toulouse as "Lepers 8")thebeertourist (5189) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 20, 2010
Hazy orange color, good creamy off-white head. Ginger spicey and fruity nose. Medium-bodied. Sweet fruity flavor, overriped banana and ginger. Sweetish, some alcohol. Pleasant.
Bottle from Cave à Bulles. Hazy, pale golden with a small head. Quite spiced aroma with coriander and herbal notes. Quite herbal in character, well-contained sweetness. Not bad, but too much spices and too little substance. Lubiere (13905) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 28, 2010
A hazed light blonde ale with a thin white head. Aroma is quite interesting, with nice herbal qualities, light lactic notes, veering on gueuze and light honey. In mouth, a very sweet honey overlayed with coriander, light acidic points, a tad cloying but overall, not bad. 750 ml bottle from Cave a Bulles, Paris, May 2010.
