Bummed out by my otherwise excellent local wine store for calling this a "farmhouse ale." I happily paid $7.99 for that, not for a witbier. Oh well. That said, it does lean toward farmhouse/saison but is still clearly a wit with herbal and curacao notes prominent, even if watered down. Pours a cloudy light orange and with big prickly bubbles. Bummer.
330ml bottle from a French supermarket. Pours misty blonde, medium white head. Floral, lightly yeasty aroma. Taste is lightly floral, spicy, some moderate to low hop presence, mild sweetness. Ok, but not destined to crash the top 50 any time soon. Olelko (24) - FRANCE - MAY 11, 2016
I drank this beer about two months ago, so I don’t remember much of it. I just wanted to rate it approximately to remember. So, about the beer: normal, worst than the Loère but better than a supermarket standard. A bit too sweet I recall. Deu (949) - Nantes, FRANCE - MAR 26, 2016
Bottle 75cl. Cloudy amber color with a small disappearing white head. Medium body and medium carbonation. A bit winy. StudHammer (29) - - MAR 25, 2016
Very interesting beer. I was surprised by the cloudiness and huge bready style. My first of this kind but well worth the try. I would be interested in others to compare.
Yellow with brown reflections, cloudy, fine bubbles; fine, creamy foam, which lasts a very long time. Smells of hop, herbs, and agrum. Fine, subtile, lightly sour. Great with (true) St-Nectaire (French, of course) in matching shades. bergstaden (3332) - Røros, NORWAY - OCT 25, 2015
Hazy golden with a white head - Mlat and yeasts in the aroma - Malt body with some hints of hops and a spicy yesty flavour - The malt and spicy yeasts goes into the finish - This was ok

UPDATED: APR 10, 2017 330 ml bottle, from Vinmonopolet, Nettbutikken. BB date 08.01.2015. ABV is 5.5%. Pale golden colour, clear first, hazy when the yeast is poured in the end. Large white head of poor retention. Strange aroma of dust, sea water, cooked vegetables. Soft mouthfeel. Fairly dry and refreshing flavour, hints of salt, mild spices and citrus. Moderate hops. llucmaduell (312) - barcelona, SPAIN - JUN 16, 2015
When you go to France looking for local beers. There are few, and those that are not of high quality. This is a clear example. Surely the water treatment requirement and the lack of public accountability is in French. jefcon (1935) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - MAY 15, 2015
A gentle, easy drinking what-forward beer. Lots of lacy head and a light palate of straw and hay and light hops. Rolfarild (212) - NORWAY - FEB 7, 2015
Sourish aroma. White great head that disappears imediatly. The tase i fresh with yeast and herby tones. Clove and yeast in the aftertaste.
