Review according to the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 18A), 30 cl bottle. AROMA: light earth, floral and predominant sulphur notes. APPEARANCE: clear deep gold with average white retention. good lacing. TASTE: initial smooth and light sweetness with a dry finish. medium-low bitterness with very subtle esters (orange). PALATE: high carbonation with bubbly sensation and medium body. some creaminess derived from the carbonation. OVERALL: a subtle belgian blonde with dry to very-dry finish but with some sulphur aroma.

On Tap in Paris. Pours deep golden with white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of funky yeast, bready malt and sour apples. Body is full and smooth. Taste is of funky yeast, bready malt, and some apricots, with some sourness. Finish is long and sour. Quite drinkable brew.
