Looks like ginger ale.
Musty, and fruity, green grape and golden apple come to mind. Yup theres some horse in there, as well as an herbal quality.
Things come together on the taste, it stacks up well to other biere de mars that ive enjoyed. The qualities present in the aroma are there in the tasting, but the malt also reveals itself. A touch of caramel segues into a clean and dry flavour of pale malt and the wheat used. The tanginess of the lemon also asserts itself at the finish.
Light bodied and well balanced. The barnyard and fruity esters are a nice compliment to the touch of caramel and pale malts.
Im enjoying this brew and find it pretty drinkable. Guess im like the old cowboy in the Jon Dore Show, i like the horse, it has nothing to do with the alcohol. If you dont know what im talking about i hope someday you do. Id recommend this to fans of biere de garde's. Id also be happy to drink this again. I just dont understand the classification of this beer...

22oz bottle served in a Prairie Teku
Thanks to Yoshi Optimator for this one! Cheers!
A - Hazy amber/apricot color with 2 fingers of soapy tan bubbles. Zero lacing with a thin cap.
S - Earthy citrus, acidic, white wine, granny smith apples, sharp sourdough bread, dusty grains, over ripe tropical fruit, pineapple and mango, sweet but funky. Fruity alcohol coming through.
T - Follows the nose with earthy citrus, grainy bread, peppery, old grass, apple juice, muted lemons, dry yeast. There's a hint of acidity, but not as much as the nose describes. The finish brings more pepper along with some bitter melon rind.
M - Annoyingly high carbonation, you can't hold a drink in your mouth for more than 2 seconds or it just completely turns to foam. The body is thin for a split second. So you have extreme opposites.
I'm not exactly sure but pretty sure this is a few years old. An interesting beer for sure. The mouthfeel threw it off a little for me. I'm not a fan of swallowing straight foam. Great aroma. The funk is delicate without being light, very earthy with notes of sourdough bread and tropical fruit.
