Appearance: Russet colored; medium head

Aroma: Malty; spicy; fruity

Taste: Malty; spicy; tart; dry; complex finish

Remarks: One of my favorites. I'd buy it almost every time we went to Cora in Strasbourg. I missed it so much I homebrewed some.

Did not score A, T, S, M at that time; disregard those scores

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Amber-gold, hazy with some floaties. The usual billowing head I'd expect from a bottle-conditioned beer doesn't materialize. Still, there's about two fingers of foam, leaving behind scattered streaks of lace. Smells of sweet butterscotch with fruity notes of ripe apple and white grape. Yeast notes are barely there.

The sweetness from the aroma is quite prominent on the palate, though it dries out a bit toward the finish. Malty and somewhat fruity overall. The very fine carbonation is extremely soft, leading to a mouthfeel that's kind of dull and flat.

A bit too sweet and lacking in complexity, and the texture is a let-down, too. The basic flavors and aromas are nice, but the aforementioned faults make this a tepid recommendation at best.

Serving type: bottle
