ante (3373) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 4, 2009
Bottled. "2009 Edition. Pours out in a slightly hazy pale amber colour with a rich fluffy white foam. Rich malty and fruity aroma of apricots and dried oranges with a mild understated yeastiness. Medium to full-bodied with firm malty notes of nectarines, dried oranges, cookies and mild yeast with subtle notes of grassy noble hops and herbs. Long balanced aftertaste of orange-peels, butter, herbs and grass. Elegant and quaffable.

3.2
imdownthepub (14744) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2009
Bottled, 750ml, at The Clichy Tavern, Paris as 3 Monts Grande reserve. Gold with white head. Quite a light beer for the strength, but with a really hoppy, lemony flavour, long and refreshing, but perhaps over carbonated. Some spicing and a little sweetness, a good interesting beer.
