EvilCat (106) - FRANCE - JUN 22, 2014
Bouteille. Bootlegger (Paris). Bière blonde lumineuse, mousse blanche abondante. Nez de levure et d'agrumes. Bouche rafraîchissante portée par une levure de saison bien typée, on y retrouve agrumes et épices. Le tout est soutenu par amertume lui confèrant une honorable longueur en bouche . Finale sèche . Une saison bien exécutée , seul bémol : on ne retrouve pas le dry hopping annoncé. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JUN 18, 2014
(bottle - corked & caged 750 ml - 2013 vintage) Cloudy orange pour with a thick white head. Spicy and earthy hoppy aroma. Some good peppery notes. Flavor starts off dry and spicy but then you definitely get the dry hopping bitterness. Lingers for a while on the palate and leaves a nice spicy note.
