Bottle. Malt, fruit and hops in aroma. Unclear yellow colour with white head. Surprisingly much malt and bread in flavour with only discrete hops bitterness. A hint of citrus. KyotoLefty (10254) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 3, 2009
Medium gold with a slight orange tint. Nice, fine head. Cloudy. Fresh, fruity aroma of yeast and malt mainly. Much like a Belgian blonde. Lots of yeast. A fruity blond beer with darn good hopping. Flavor is a touch sweet, fruity with a bit of citrus, and some spice. Finish of malt and hops, lasting fairly long. Not very original, but a well-balanced, well-hopped blonde ale. I like it a lot. joe19612 (2923) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2009
Bottle. A orange beer with a thin white head. Good citrus aroma, the flavour is spicy and more than a hint of citrus fruit. A pleasent refreshing and light beer. LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - SEP 26, 2008
33cl comprata dal Fruttivendolo di Via Maddalena; la mia fa 6% ABV ed è una ale dallo splendido colore dorato, torbido e con una buona schiuma forse un po’ evanescente. L’aroma è ottimo, di frutta fresca (albicocca, pesca, banana); in bocca perde consistenza e assume una nota un po’ dispersiva peggiorata da un sentore di lievito un po’ troppo pronunciato. Ma per il resto non è stata una brutta sorpresa. wkalle (263) - SWEDEN - AUG 21, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2009 Bottle conditioned. Hazy amber color with rather creamy white head. At first a welcoming yeasty note is present but halfway through a sour orange aroma with some sharp weird coriander spiced alcoholic notes brings down the rating for this beer who started out quite nice.

Dark yellow colored, strongly cloudy appearance. Strongly lemony and yeasty aroma with some orange and witbier styled spices, rich aroma indeed. Medium bodied. Flavor is also rich with more hops than in aroma, still this orange and lemon come up finely hee. Fruits with convenient yeasty-spiciness can be found also. Aftertaste turns to bitter with hops, some blood-orange notes last long. FatPhil (16102) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 7, 2008
330ml bottle (Tuulensuu, Tampere, French days 2008) shared by Tbone_ - thanks!
Rich orange, cloudy, small light head. Dry dusty hoppy aroma, but not overpowering at all. Slightly papery yeasty taste. Well balanced, but with nothing really to grab onto. oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 6, 2008
Bottled. Golden colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is caramel, spices, alcohol and some mild notes of glue and paper. Flavour is malts, caramel, sugar and mild notes of alcohol. TBone (17528) - Pori, FINLAND - JAN 6, 2008

Hazy orange color, decent creamy white head. Nose is kind of papery, oat-like. Flavor has light sweet edge in the beginning. beer is grassy and bitterish. Interesting French beer, not really typical biere de garde, more like a Belgian blonde.
Optimal head of longest persistence. Beautiful blond color much fraught and full, lightly orange with good fizzy aspect. Fresh and prickly aroma with notes of macerated clear grape, lemon and plum. A lot lively and with elevated alcoholic perception. Much sour and acidulous taste. Sweetish final with stum notes.
