Bouteille à bouchon 375 ml / La Cave à Bières - Yverdon (CH). 2014 - Blonde dorée trouble à belle mousse blanche dense et persistante, pétillement fin et superbes dentelles. Arôme fruité, levure, agrumes, épices et amertume. Une des Saisons les plus amères et qui renforce son amertume d’où une bière sèche et acidulée mais bien en bouche, vive avec des notes d’orange, agrumes, épices et levure. Un délice frais et harmonieux.

dnicolaescu (2480) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - JAN 16, 2017
BOTTLE 37,5 CL vintage 2014. Hazy golden, big fluffy head. The aroma is a marvelous mix of white baguette, fresh pale stone fruit (peaches, apricot), wild aromatic herbs. Light hints of boiled vegetables. The taste is not as dry, slightly honeyish actually, relatively thin and slightly bitter. Again, a slight hint of cooked corn. Good, but past it prime.
