Look is not the best...not very deep, and too foamy..!

Smell is not the best either, though is promising. Quite citrussy, though also a bit tramp bierry...and similar to bubble bath.

Impressive taste, though the alcohol flavour does not quite unite with the overall experience. Still, from memory, currently my favorite French beer. Not that there is much competition...

Feel, kind of like bubble bath also

Not so good. Very fermented and carbonated which damages the overall. I think they gave put too much yeast on that.

A: Orange. Hazy. Medium, foamy white head. Sticky lacing.

S: it's hard to say for sure as I am sitting in a pub/pizza joint. So, melted cheese and greasy meats? I pick up notes of caramel and butterscotch. Prunes.

T: uh..liquid fantastic ness. Light saison flavors. Apricot. Cherry. Light funkiness.

M: high carbonation. Medium body. Dry.

O: yum.
