look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pours brilliant orange-amber in color. Generous carbonation, but only a slight head that leaves no lacing.

Aroma is mild. Sweet toasted malt, along with a nice bit of citrus. Flowery notes and vague spices.

Taste is bready, toasted caramel malt. Subdued earthy hop bitterness. Quite nutty, woody, with tart apple, pear, and grape fruit esters. Finish is musty, holds minor yeasty spice and lingering toasted malt and apple.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, soft. Initially sweet and slightly syrupy, then it turns dry and tart.

Subtle and interesting. This is a style that I haven't had the opportunity to encounter very often. This beer is very flavorful and balanced resulting in a great drinkability as a session brew.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Poured into an oversized tulip Duvel goblet, deep copper with a thin head, and some wispy swirls on top. Not much noticable carbonation.

S: Smell of caramel, toasted malts, hint of yeast and something floral.

T: Malty sweet flavor, mixed in with some hops. Finished malty, with a slight lingering citrus aftertaste.

M&D: Medium bodied, easy to drink, nicely balanced.

It was not what I expected, since I never experienced a "French Style Country Ale", brewed in Warrenville, IL. It reminded me very much of a Belgian-style brew. Definitely worth sampling.
