This is truly France's greatest product. While yes, they well known for their wines... (even though California wines are rated so much better apparently) and I am really happy to say that they do great with this beer too. It has a FANTASTIC taste.. it doesn't taste like a beer, it tastes more like you are drinking a dessert over an actual wheat beer. Kronenbourg 1664 is definitely the toast of France!

A 330ml blue bottle with a best before date of April 2016 and poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: Poured a hazy straw yellow with a slightly more than one finger white head that dissipates within a minute leaving stringy lacing.

Aroma: Fruity aromas of orange, banana and peach with honey floating about and a light citrusy lemon wheat backbone.

Taste: Flavours are mainly peachy with hints of fruity lemon, banana and apricot.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with medium carbonation.

Overall: Light, crisp and very easy to drink. It is refreshing on a hot summers day with the nice peachy flavours.

A: The beer is very hazy yellow in color and has a light to moderate amount of visible carbonation near the edge of the glass. It poured with a finger high bright white head that died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles on the surface, a collar around the edge, and some lacing down the sides.
S: Moderate aromas of sweet green apple candy are present in the nose, which somewhat resemble a Jolly Rancher.
T: Like the smell, the taste has flavors of green apples, but there is no sweetness and hints of spices and pale malts.
M: It feels light-bodied and a touch watery on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink, but the green apple candy-like aromas and flavors seem like they are artificial.
