Enjoyed at the Abita Brewery, then again at a party.

A: Hazy golden/orange with a frothy off-white one finger head that lingered. Lacing for days.

S: Nice citrus notes of orange, peach and apricots. Belgian yeast and peppers protrude.

T: Very smooth and frothy. The floral and citrus notes hit you immediately with peach and apricot. Belgian malts and yeast linger long after the finish. Sweet throughout.

M: Thick and chewy with medium to high carbonation. This one is a joy on the tongue.

O: A great party drink. Very sessionable. The light fruitiness and Belgian yeastiness of French Connection make it a hit with both guys and ladies. Abita has a very strong line of Select beers. This is another winner.

A saisonesque beer brewed with French Malts, French hops and French yeast. I love the concept! Very good beer. Pale gold, enticing aroma. Smells abit like Starburst candy, in a good hoppy/yeasty sort of way. Love how it tastes. Starts funky and slightly sour. Hops ride in and deliver a bit of lemon zest and melon. The finish is a bit sweet and slightly sour. My only complaint really, wish this one was just a bit drier, but all in all that's small matter considering how fantastic this beer is.
