I was not terribly impressed with this beer. It opened with a loud pop, and the carbonation was quite nice though the head with a bit mediocre. Aromas of apples and lemon peel. The taste is light and wheaty up front but has an almost rotten sweetness to the end. It's not very complex, there isn't a whole lot going on, and the light aftertaste is a little gross. It was a 750mL bottle. I had a glass and then dumped the rest.

Brewery Visit - 24th April 2000.

Tried on draft in the Café, which is next to the Brewery, the Chez L’Père Sarrasin. Limited Notes.

Joseph, 6% ABV.
A very strange, deep yellow, wheat beer brewed with spelt wheat and very cloudy indeed. The literature that I picked up, states that this is intentional due to the double-fermentation. Spicy hints in the aftertaste. Reasonable drinking beer as I recall, but quite strange and can take some getting used to.

An unusual wheat beer, spelt is a very old grain in the wheat family. Cloudy, high carbonation, strong head. A good wheat style. Organic, $8.99 for 750ml. Importer: WIN - IT - TOO Inc. Santa Barbara, Ca.
