Dégustée à la Taverne Irlandaise Le Trèfle de Trois-Rivières

A: Superbe couleur rafraîchissante entre le rosé et l'orangée, contiennait énormément de dépôt de levure et/ou gélatine (assez grosses particules). Recouverte d'une fabuleuse mousse épaisse assez durable

S: Exotique odeur d'orangée, de coriande et d'épices

T: Excellent goût rafraîchissant qui référe beaucoup à son odeur sucré. Beaucoup plus appréciable en bouche que sa petite cousine, plus complexe avec le degré d'alcool plus élevé. Moins atténué

M: Douce, dépôt flottant non désagréable, laisse un goût assez marqué de présence de levure et de blé

D: Très facile à boire et à apprécier

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A: Cloudy golden with a few round chunks of yeast floating within, little fine carbonation, 2 finger of creamy white head.

S: Fruity, apple sauce, apples, slight sharp cheddar bite, all that you look for in this style.

T: Follows the nose. Very dry, light sweetness, phenols, fruity with a hint of apples, cheddar bite.

M: Smooth medium body, medium high fine bubbled carbonation, dry finish.

O: It’s a fine beer. Feels like a perfect version of this style. Its great, no real faults and for that I will rate it higher, but nothing really interesting here. Feels like I’ve had this brew a dozen times. At that, its flawless. BBD is September 12, 2014, bottled on Dec 12, 2012.
