Pours a clear golden color with big fluffy white head. Dense, meringue peaks, leaving chunky interlocked rings of lace down the glass. Looks magnificent. Smell: pear, notes of white grape, honey, peach skin; mildly herbal and grassy. Taste: soft fruit... sugary pear with notes of cooked green apple and unripe peach, lightly grainy, notes of vanilla and spice. Drying, sugary, and peach skin in the finish. Delicious.

Poured from corked 750 ml bottle (bottled april 2014). No sediment in bottle. Reviewed from notes:

Pours a golden clear liquid with ample white creamy head. Very highly carbonated. Grassy, malty aroma. Taste is fantastic -slightly sweet, with a zesty fruit tang and a dry bitter finish. Light to medium bodied, I'm amazed at how well the 8.5% abv is masked. I have never had as a carbonated beer (noting it is top fermented) - almost like champagne. A very good beer.

Continued tour of French beers. Bought in Lyon, poured chilled in ale glasses, chez buzzlitebeer

A: bright; light, like a champagne/prosecco; foamy head; good lacing
S: like a dry white wine or prosecco; grape aroma
T: bright, pilsner-like quality; apple cider in the body; the yeast (champagne?) is a strong element; very much like a fruit or cider beer

Really nice, well worth a trip.
