Lager like in appearnece. Not very good nose - bad things. The taste is also bad with acidity and sulphurous waste. I give up on trying finding an organic beer that is not just marketing.

Vaiz (4460) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - SEP 21, 2010
Looking at a fading sunset in the French hills near the côte d’azur, I opened this brew bought at a local supermarket. Except for the thick foamy white head that leaves lacing, this seems to be just an ordinary lager. A little more rough and some interesting sweetness in the flavor. Quite watery finish though and nothing much in the aroma either. Ah well, it’s not that bad, just a bit boring. Will finish my bottle though.

KyotoLefty (10810) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 7, 2010
Bottle. Light blonde color, clear, low, fine, foamy head. Sweet,malty, buttery aroma, fruits, esp. citrus, honey. A rather unpleasant aroma, weird, with malt vinegar and sweat. Sweet, malty aroma, estery fruit, a touch of orange, honey. There is a good bit of bitter hop and a slight sour tang in the finish. Should be colder…not very good..

jaghana (6367) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - SEP 6, 2010
Bottle 33cl. A yellow clear beer. Smell is very bitter and sour. Aroma is very bitter and spicy, smell is lager like, even burnt notes at the finish. There is a huge bitterness there, from dry hoping, infection, notes of solvent. Quite bad.

Jerre (3857) - Waregem, BELGIUM - AUG 5, 2010
Found Carrefour Argenton @ Argenton (France) taste 02.08.2010. Bit hazy (dark)golden color, with to offwhite head. Aroma very full of grains, bit hops. Medium body. Taste sweet, nice malts, good hops, with fruits touch, and little spice. Refreshing and easy to drink, good beer for this 4,5 abv. Like it.

sebletitje (10502) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUN 24, 2010
65cl flip top bottle. Interesting organic beer. light golden in color with white head. aroma is grainy, hoppy with nice floral elements. flavors, has a nice fresh hop presence, brown sugar and nice malty palate. Easy to drink, light palate sweet and malty, lingering citrus hops, a nice change from what can usually be found in French supermarkets.

Lubiere (14262) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 8, 2010
A golden ale with a thick receeding white head. A rather lager like aroma of german hops and light sulfuric notes., with some caramel notes. In mouth, a crisp malt with german saaz hops, honest and without pretension. Bottle from Inno Supermarket Passy, 2.70 Euros.

darkseduction (773) - Zweibrücken, GERMANY - FEB 19, 2010

Bottle from Naturalia CNIT Défense, Paris
Blond color; eggwhite head. Poor aroma, cheap Lager, paper. The flavor as well is poor, simple, weak and not bitter.

3.1
DeanF (2647) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 17, 2010
Pours nicely, golden yellow, fluffy head on top, in a tulip glass. Aroma is a weak affair of slight grassiness and tin. Taste is a nice and strong graininess, slight roasted malt finish with a good taste left on the palate. Refreshing and tasty.
