A - A hazy body of deep glowing orange/amber sits below a dense, frothy white head. Lacing is ample and the head gradually dissipates but stays around to leave a bit at the bottom of the glass.

S - Really interesting nose. Belgian yeast is mild and a bit subdued, but fruity ester seem to dominate. I feel like I smell tropical fruits - papaya, mango.... maybe apricot more than anything. The fruitiness does not come from the hops, however. Hop aromas are mild and subdued, maybe a touch citrusy.

T - Pretty much the same as the nose. The bite from the hops is pronounced on the finish.

M - Very smooth and creamy, mild carbonation pairs well with the rich body, very robust for the style.

O - Excellent beer that I continue to crave after I have put down two pints. Highly recommended if you come across it. From what I understand this is a limited beer with limited distribution. I look forward to seeing more great things from Lucette. (952 characters)

French Connection poured a hazy bright straw color, with a nice large lacing head. Their was a mellow yeasty aroma, with big notes of citrus, specifically lemon. The taste was nice and full of fruit like flavors, lots of lemon notes, with a strong malty and yeasty like backbone. Nice full flavor, and very drinkable. Overall a very nice easy drinking beer. (357 characters)
