Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 11, 2009
Bottle at Sous-Bock. Lovely red-amber color with thick white head. Fresh fruity, almost lagered aroma with bright wild berry notes. Clean, creamy mouthfeel. Super smooth. Has some medicinal qualities but mellow. Berries linger on the tongue. Interesting beer.

bhensonb (15621) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 28, 2009
Bottle at Académie De La Bière. Amber color with fluffy white head and chunks! Chunks are a plus. Fruits of all kinds and malt for aroma. Med. body with mild carbonation. Hint of sour. Apple, berry, caramel and nuts. Finishes towards dry. Didn’t get anise. Try this!

Having never consumed patxaran, I am a little bit handcuffed with this rating, but here goes. It is an effervescent pink-accented amber colour. There’ s a hint of pink in the head as well. The footy, dusty aroma is both floral and fruity. Firm, malty palate with slight berryish note and light florals. Finishes with a creamy, sweet mouthfeel.

jbrus (4989) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - OCT 1, 2001
A bit hoppy and sweet with something special that a can't quite place. Not bad at all but no beer to drink more than 1 or 2.

erickok (6037) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUL 2, 2014
Amber bodied and stable head. Not unpleasant light malts, some caramel, biscuity, even a little nutty. Light chemical but nothing worrying. Decent supple taste of a simple high fermentation amber. Considering the price, location, etc I really enjoyed drinking this. (On tap at a random bar next to Gare du Nord Paris, watching the World Cup)

Weird beer that I taste during a sort visit to the french-basque country. Not bad.

3.3
Bov (13221) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - OCT 16, 2006
brewed for the contract brewer Oldarki - hazy golden-amber colour with a nice firm foam; aroma of plum and yeast with a touch of alcohol; medium-bodied, rather sweet and with a hint of sourness; no bitterness and a gentle fruity finish - unusual and quite pleasant

3.3

3.2
thebeertourist (5189) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 17, 2007
From bottle at Le Sous-Bock, Paris. Hazy, burgundy with a good tan head. Fruity aroma with hints of spices. Refreshing prune flavours, balanced by bitter spices. Fizzy. Interesting and enjoyable.
