Bottle from supermarket... Clear light amber color with n evanescent white head... aromas: sweet, artificial whisky... Taste is also very sweet with some product whisky-like around the palate.... bad... drink iced...

Don't ever ever buy that one. Terrible taste, no head, taste like crap and doesn't even deserve to be called a 'beer'. Use this to flush the toilets...!

I wasn’t sure what to expect here, and like those who loved it, it’s pretty good. It can’t be compared to others and needs to be addressed on it’s own qualities. Nice rich golden color with creamy head, aroma of wood and toffee, taste of caramel, peat, butter and wood. Smooth and oily texture, this is really different French beer.

Seems to be similar kind of thing to innis & gunn beers, heavy on the whisky flavorings with not much else.
Aroma is pretty much non existent, little malty bread and some vanilla maybe.
Taste pretty much the same but really far too sweet. Lots of overpowering vanilla and maybe some caramel.
A bit too one dimensional with basically no depth of taste or aroma, an alco-pop.

Saigon (bottle)

I will not drink this beer unless there are no other choices.

mildly sickly-sweet, nutty-syrupy, and hairy-grainy (like a coconut husk with back fuzz?!)

this beer is barely smoky and, overall, tastes like a malty alco-pop

crystal-clear and almond-skin light brown in color, mild-moderate head retention (amazingly)

had a bottle of it at Hall's Beer Tavern in Paris... looked interesting in the menu, but it ended up sad and passively laughable

not worth your money or time

It’s been almost 8 years since I last tried this beer; this time round this is one of two cans of beers I brought back from a short business trip to Paris, purchased in a haste at a small shop near Gare Du Nord, Paris. Coming in a 500ml can, at 5.8%abv.; BB 10/2014, served lightly chilled in a straight imperial pint glass.

A: pours a bright reddish golden colour, coming with a nice foamy off-white head and rather restrained carbonation.
S: smells like a lager bier, with dusty and lemony notes upfront, on top of a rather sweet, burned-sugary and candy-ish malty body; given a good swirl, a mixed herbal and chemical-influenced note comes to the fore, suggesting random notes of high-pitched (I mean, light-bodied and “floating”) phenol, which I suppose comes from the “whisky malts”.
T: it tastes like corn-sugar soup with lots of vanilla-ish flavourings, sweet licorice, and a very mild touch of whatever maltiness following at the back. As the unpleasant sweetness and corns settle, the aftertaste gives away hints at the lightly bitter edge of hops and subtly phenolic edge of malts. Thin and slightly cloying in the end.
M&O: not too fizzy, but not smooth either, as the body comes way too thin for a 5.8%abv. beer and the flavour profile is hugely unbalanced. All in all, comparing this experience with my previous notes, this beer seems going downhill greatly.

* Bottle Version, 6.6%abv.; Tasting Date: 11/03/06
Tasted at the Quinn's, Camden Town, London. At 6.6%abv., the beer comes in a clear bottle, which I suppose is meant to show the nice colour from whisky malt~~ BB 04/07.
3.5 A: pours an amber hue, coming with a creamy, off-white foamy cap, on the top of a lightly-carbonated body.
3.5 S: sweet whisky aroma with a touch of vanilla, caramel, green apple, and Speyside Malt's fruity aroma, along with a lightly resinous hop coming through the foam. Overall the nose is pretty soft and smooth, without much influence from the peat-smoked malts as far as I'm concerned.
3 T: sweet vanilla accompanies the chest-nutty maltiness with a touch of white chocolates; a flow of oak-barrel like sweet vanilla flavour along with cinnamon stick slowly develops at the back; yet gradually giving way to a sweet and thin sugary aftertaste, like that of aspartame...
2.5 M&2.5 D: thin bodied though tasting smooth, the overall body is way too weak to be enjoyable, made worse by the ending sugary flavour. The palate falls short of the promise of the aroma. And if it's a smoked beer, it's a quite weak one as no substantial peatiness is present. I paid 3.2 quid for this bottle, as much as for a 3 Fonteinen Oud Geuze at the same pub! They could've saved the space in the fridge for a better beer, I think.
