Bottle, Bignens Vins in Balexert. Deepish interesting clear brown colour. Woody. Lager whacked in oak, woodiness dominates, underlying beer not robust enough to cope, the wood doesnt accentuate just takes over. I normally like this brewery but this one wasnt such a success, sadly.

Cloudy orange with a meager white head. Bready, malty, hoppy aroma but of little consequence. Lots of carbonation. Some woodiness and smoke. Nice bottle, anyway.

Bottle brought back by my wife from Swiss holiday. Hazy orange colour with a white head. Malt and fruit aroma. Medium body. Flowery. OK.

Sampled in Zurich. A pretty nice brew, goes down really smooth and crisp. In a bottle, pours a nice bit of head. Decent spicing.

From a 330 ml. swing top bottle with a blurb and best before date on the back label, 2006.May.2006. Poured an clear golden hued orange with a foamy white head that settled into a thin soapy lacing, a minor amount of ringed sticking. Aromas of tart apricot juiciness, clove herbalness, a sweet breadiness with a barrel woodiness. Good, even carbonation and a crisp, dryish, tart, creamy smooth medium-light bodied mouthfeel. Delicious tasting, a tart apricot with hints of cider, clove spicy and herbal, a subtle creaminess, traces of barrel woodiness, sweet bready malts, and a banana fruity and dry malty finish. Much better than I was expecting since it was past its freshness date, well worth trying if you see on a shelf somewhere.

Thanks 17thfloor for sharing! Pours a strange dark golden, just very light, though it does have a decent lingering white frothy head. Aroma is surprising, very smoky, some bacon and smoked campfiery malts. Flavor has an immediate smoky note before becoming sweet and caramely. Some toffee and toast become more prevalent through a strange and off balanced finish, I can see where the beer was maybe before and I think I am trying to picture that, but its a bit off all around. Medium body and a soft carbonation. Wow that is different. I think the sweet maltiness just takes over becomes cloying

Bottle. Pleasantly sweet and malty, yet light and refreshing. Tasty. Didnt know Locher had a second good brew.

Clear, amber body with almost no head, just a ring of white bubbles around the edge. The aroma is boring and bland, some grains, light honey sweetness, some odd fruitiness of lemon and a touch of something like wheat bread. The body is thin and lackluster. The flavor is sweet with just a hint of bitterness. The oak character is conspicuously absent, which isnt really a problem here. The elements of DMS (corn) are just too strong here, and really takes away from this one. If it was a little cleaner, this could be pretty nice. As it stands, its probably not worth another visit.
