The beer poured a crystal clear pale straw with a white fluffy and lasting head that fell very slowly to lace the glass.

The aroma was strongly Saaz hops when first opened and poured and the aroma became nice and crisp over time.

The flavor was even and without much character when first poured. Over time the flavor built a nice bittering characteristic and a crispness with just a slight caramel maltiness as it warmed.

The finish was dry and crips with lasting bittering that continued to dry long into the aftertaste. The body was medium light, but not watery.

12 ounce bottle, clear with a white plastic wrapper. The beer was very easy to drink, but without much flavor. There was absolutely nothing wrong with the beer, but nothing to brag about. I can see drinking this at a cafe in France on a hot day.

Golden, dull pour with a very flat head. The nose seemed to be very floral and a touch hoppy. I found the taste to be ok with a decent hoppiness but something was lacking.....maybe complexity. The mouthfeel was bitter and dry and the finish was much of the same. Although i didn't expect much, I was hoping for more.

Presentation: 330 ml clear glass bottle with a white plastic wrap and a best before end of jet ink printed freshness date on the neck. “Ice Brewed Beer Since 1740” on the label.

Appearance: Pale yellowish beige crystal clear colour, thin and struggling white lace from a semi-active carbonation.

Smell: Very clean aroma with a faint sweetness and clean solvent whiff of alcohol.

Taste: Short crispness off of a light body, carbonation is fine but fights to refresh. Malt is thin and hops are meek. Clean whack of husky grain with a quite bite, hops are the same and bite nearly at the same time as the grain. Obviously dry and extremely clean.

Notes: Not much going on here, tastes like an American Ice Beer yet it is brewed in France ... what's the point? As a specialty beer it was a miss, at $2.20 a pop you’ll be quite disappointed.

Tutss or Tutz, from France: an Ice Brewed Beer, whatever that means, and I’m thinking it means weak ass bad tasting beer, or maybe French macro lager. Very, very cool bottle, pure white sleeve over a long neck bottle. Pale beer, pure white head. Very unimpressive taste, like a blanket of bad malt flavor. Cool bottle though.

Picked up at a bottle shop in Pawley's Island, SC...
Appears a clear, straw toned light yellow with a small white head that quickly fades into a fizzy cap. Light lacing is left.
Smell is of skunky grass, creamed corn, and wet hay.
Taste is of the same skunky, corn husk and hay that's just not appealing.
Mouthfeel is musty with the skunky must shining through.
This one probably makes better toilet bowl cleaner than a palate cleanser.

Very interesting packaging to go along with this very interesting beer. A clear bottle wrapped entirely in white with a couple of very simple logo's.
Deep yellow in colour with a full fingered frothy crown leading to a full lace,ring and cling.
The body is a medium plus.
The aroma has a slight floral quality to it.
The taste is far better than I anticipated, opening to a hoppy bitterness then leveling out in balance to finish with a more moderate hoppy taste. Slight linger...Nice.

Pours with a white one-fingered head that fades and leaves traces of lace. Clear pale yellow color. Light carbonation and light bodied. Starts with a light mix of hops and malts, not typical of a pale since there is no hoppy aftertaste. $2.30 for a 330ml bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, Ma.

Wow! I think I found the French equivlent of Duff beer. It's beer, that's it. Nothing more, nothing less. The Upside is the appearance. Even though it was a regular light straw color, it had a nice head that lasted a little while, and then disappated into a then "layering". The smell was quite crappy, with essence of Pepe Lepieu. The taste was similar, but lighter on the skunk and a little more on the nothing side. The mouthfeel actually wasn't too bad. It was quite crisp and creamy. Why would anyone buy this? Simple, the cool ass bottle!!!

Light gold color, small head. Aroma is grainy and sweet. A light flavored pilsner style lager. An "ice brewed beer". Light hops and malts. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. A painted (or wrapped) white bottle.

I've seen this beer many times, never tried it until now... Very Intriguing bottle. Ice brewed beer? I hope this isn't like Natty Lite Ice... Non-descript pale clear yellow with mild sized head. Smells kind of grainy, some metal smell. Highly carbonated and very clean taste, some bitter in the middle, not much flavor here to speak of at all. Tastes like a Macro beer. French Budweiser? I won't try this again.
