3.15/5  rDev -15.3%

(From notes)

Poured with a creamier, fairly dense half-finger of foam; ruby burnt orange color.

Aroma of light musky grapes; touch yeasty; grainy; not very appetizing in the smell. Things improve with the taste, light grains but not as cereal-like as suggested in the nose. Touch of sour fruitiness; cereal...eh. Nothing close to being an American interpretation of the style. Complete absence of a malt profile and/or hops that suggest something along those style lines. Medium to thinner body; softer carbonation. Not a great drinker, really uninteresting but it's slightly better than macro swill. Serviceable in a pinch.

4/5  rDev +7.5%

Being unfiltered, this beer poured a an opaque brown [basically, looks like apple cider] with a thick, creamy light brown head. Head hung around for a short time. Nice lacing.
Very nice start.

Aroma is of fermenting fruit [apples].

Taste is of sweet malts with only some light hops at the end.

Mouthfeel is flat and listless. No carbonation.

Overall, a very easy to drink brew. Other than the mouthfeel, I wouldn't mind having another [or several].

Presented in mini-tulip glass

Enjoyed at Brasserie Du Molard while visiting Geneva, Switzerland.

A: Murky grapefruit. Almost no head on this guy...just a few lingering bubbles.

S: Caramel, vanilla, plum peel, raisins. Interesting and unexpected.

T: Medium malt body that is very pleasant with a nice balance of caramel. Hints of plum and craisin come thru, but do not over-power the lingering sweetness. Very enjoyable!

M: Medium body with almost no carbonation.

O: For me, this did not drink like a normal amber, but I really enjoyed that about it. There were several layers and it was decently complex. By far my favorite of their three offerings at this classy Swiss brewpub.
