I Had La Meule as it was on the "1001." I liked it. Two things.
First, this reminds me of a dry saison.
Second, ratings range. So, I'll have again.

Apricot gold pour with white head; quick cap reduction; lots of lace and lots of bubbles; brown yeast sediment. Biscuit and clove nose and black peppery notes with banana notes on the backend. Medium to strong clove flavor with spice (sage) right behind; bananas from the yeast show up in the finish. Highly carbonated with lite mouthfeel. Dry, spicy linger with some clove left over.

330ml bottle from Drinks of the World, Basel (5.20 CHF):
Quite lively & spicy with strong carbonation but still balanced & easy to drink. It was a beer that grew on me the more I had of it & it seemed refreshing in places with the citrus balancing the pale malts & spice whilst adding some to the complexity; certainly one of the nicer spiced beers I've tried.

33cl bottle from the Coop supermarket in Switzerland.

Aroma - Quite nice sourness at the beginning, and then a cool bitterness at the finish. Like a citrusy / herbal belgian Ale.

Appearance - Pours a beautiful orange / bright golden hazy beer, with a 1 finger head that dies quickly. Really cloudy.

Flavor- A nice marriage of grapefruit, lavender, soap, citrus, and sage.

Mouthfeel - Light-Medium bodied, Medium Carbonation, refreshing in a good way and far from boring.

Overall Impression - Everyone should try it. At the beginning it feels slightly wierd, but by the end of the glass I almost always want another one. It's the kind of beer that grows on you as you drink it.
