Hazy orange in color. Beautiful head, creamy and compact. And very persistent.
In the smell, a lot of white flowers. Then cereals, grainy, yeast, and breadcrust.. Notes of unripe fruit (pear, melon).
In the taste rises up a good spicy character (pepper), with white flowers again, some citrousy (grape fruit), and yeast again.
Quite light in body.
Good spicy and peppery aftertaste, with again yeast, citrousy and cereals notes. Well balanced.

In the French vocabulary, le Pays de Cocagne is an imaginary land where people could leave in happiness, with no concerns and no work.
The head faded quickly into a nice thin velvety collar, on a hazy golden color body. The smell is very hard to define, quite unusual in a beer. Maybe liquorish and yeasty, with notes of fermenting peaches or some fruit cake. Possibly raspberries too. The label mentions black wheat and heather among the ingredients, which could explain my difficulty to adequatly describe the smell. Although I've had black wheat beers or heather ales before, and they didn't smell anything similar. This is like a tequila sunrise smell.
The taste is sweet and fruity, showing floury notes of black wheat and flowery notes of what I believe is heather. It shows some of the wheat notes of the Holl beer from Riquewihr.
Mouthfeel is lively and pleasurable, light-bodied without being watery. Adequate for a great drinkability, although the finish is a bit dry. Organic.
