Picked up in Cassel, Northern France last year. 330ml bottle pours a very hazy, lemon yellow to light brown colour, with on top a thin fizzy, white collar full of carbon. Aromas of pale, bready malts with lightly tangy citrus. Tastes of wheat & malt as well as citrus and mild spices. Moderate sweet and light acetic flavour. Medium palate.

75 CL bottle, corked and caged. Beneath an illustration of a woman driving a car in front of a giant clock with turbaned guards (?) it says Biere Artisanale Sur Lie (with sediment) and on the back it has a brief description and history of the beer.

Pale, cloudy straw colored, almost grey actually, somewhat strange looking. It's so opaque it's almost milky. Nice fluffy white head bubbles up as it's poured but disappears quickly leaving no lacing.

Very spicy nose with some coriander and pepper, almost too much. Also some lemon and tangerine citrus going on, and a brighter, almost berry-like fruitiness.

Big, juicy, bright fruit flavors are forward, followed by some spiciness which is more subdued than the nose thankfully. Lemongrass, coriander, cardamom. Definitely a wit in the finish, a little dry from the spice, with just a touch of hop bitterness that rounds things out nicely.

Nice little carbonated prick at first, but for a wheat beer it's a touch thin.

Overall a decent wit. Kind of like a spicier, fruitier Hoegaarden that still manages to be less sweet and filling.
