UPDATED: JAN 10, 2015 Very strong for a blond beer but surprisingly good! We can also find a back taste of lemon. Not "heavy" at all for a 8% beer! jjsint (3202) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2015
Bottle from the Captain Pub, Annecy. Well, this is a local beer, and when in Savoie, do as the Savoyardes do (although there are few if any locals around and most people are drinking Guinness, but I digress). Dark gold, almost clear. Not a lot of visible carbonation. Light honey and maple syrup aroma. Strong sweet honey taste with a slight souring reprieve kicking in halfway through the sip. A bit messy this one.

Hazey, yellowy appearance. Honey malt, mildly spiced aroma. Sweetish malt palate, surprising: looks like a tripel, tastes like a dubbel. Toasted raisin bread, honey, mild spice. A little syrupy and cloying in the finish. Unusual for sure. TaktikMTL (7817) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 14, 2006

330. Pours dark, still straw with a big sudsy white head that heads for the door the first chance it gets. Good god, the nose is super freaky funky strong. Sour horse blanket barnyard, bordering on manure. Not a pleasant first impression. And that’s served probably a little cold for the style. Eee--the sour funk dominates the palate, too. Too much. Wild yeast running wild in a pachinko pinball machine of -cillus and -myces generations in your mouth. Not fun.

Bottle conditioned, 330ml. Golden orange with slight head. Initial impact is of sweet, bubblegum strawberry flavour, not much depth. Then there is a little herby, spicy note with a touch of alcohol, but still sweet. The flavours seem artificial, some sultana in the close. Somewhat odd. Beesbeer (452) - WALES - OCT 7, 2012
Sweetish, jammy, sultana, yeasty. Thin to medium body. Finishes like a lager. Ratman197 (14958) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - SEP 6, 2006
Bottle best by date 12-2006 poured a clear gold with lots of little fishys swimming and a creamy lasting off white head. Aromas of yeast, apple, peach and a hint of sour milk. Palate was light bodied. Flavors of peach, spices, bread and yeast with a lingering moderatly sweet finish. kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2007

Huge, very dense & fine yellowish head over hazy orangey-golden beer. Sweet nose, with initially quite some vanilla, then more vegetable, spice and a certain acidity suggested. Sourish vegetable/fruity taste; some citrus, but also a bit of vinegar. Pickles? Some toasted malts, not sweet. Acidthinning, light body. Production artisanale? That’s a nice way of saying it tastes like homebrew. Merci à Mathieu!
