Can courtesy of my parents. Served in a sampler glass. The nose brings a bit of light black pepper along with some strong citrus and tropical hops. Flavor isn’t quite as nice, as more of the yeast comes along, and doesn’t quite fit with the hop and malt profile. Body is medium and fairly bitter and dry. Pretty good, but not something I’d necessarily seek out again.

A - Deep Copper orange / reddish. Nice creamy and foamy off white head. Mild head retention.

S - Hops, malts, sweet, floral, piney.

T - Hops present up front, followed by a lingering dry flavor. Lacks a finished touch.

O - I'm glad I gave this a shot, but I wouldn't really try it again. Nice hop profile, but not much balance and an astringent mouth feel.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Undated can at 45 degrees into snifter
Faint aroma of malt
Head average (3 cm), off white, frothy, rapidly diminishing to 2 mm ring and large atoll
Lacing spotty with many lumps varying in size, shape, and bubble size
Body medium amber, clear
Flavor is primarily of malt, not particularly strong, with only a hint of hops. No alcohol, no diacetyl. Flavor ends quickly with a sweet aftertaste.
Palate is light to medium, watery, soft carbonation

An innocuous beer, easy to drink. Not the best nor the worst beer Brewery Vivant produces – a solid beer of which to consume mass quantities.

This beer is now year-around and 6 %
