Drinkable, easy way to get smashed with a couple of it. Tasting is difficult, lack of aromas, no flavor, and almost no feel and the palate..

Into a tulip glass it pours a bright gold, thin white head of foam, no lace. Looks typical of a high gravity Belgian ale, nothing overly special really. Soapy white lace, high clarity brassy color, decent retention.

Apple, sweet cooked vegetables, wet hay, light grassy aroma.

Wet barley, some apple notes from the yeast, a mild hop bitterness. Too boozy with a tacky, envelope glue aftertaste. Unbalanced with some off notes from the alcohol, and an odd metallic note. Overall unpleasant. Something seems to have gone wrong here, and i'm not going to waste $10+ again to find out if it ever improves. Not very drinkable, a good 6 ounces were dumped, couldn't finish it.

Pours a clear straw hue with a 1 inch white head that sticks around for a very long time before settling down. Loads of carbonation in this one. Lacing is scattered on the glass the entire way down.

Smells of ripe fruit, grass, and a nice earthy yeastyness.

Taste is sweet upfront but followed by a green apple flavor and a hot solventy finish, especially as the beer warms. I can't say it is unpleasant it just feels hot to me at the moment.

Dances on the tongue because of carbonation. Hard to drink because of the warming alcohol present.

Purchased at Monoprix in Angers.
This Beer Poured a light straw color with a very white head that dissipates slowly, fair amount of lacing. Aromas of smokiness meet the nose along with a grassy smell. Taste is that of the smell, slightly sweet and smokey, poor job of masking the alcohol content. All in all, somewhat unimpressed. This beer just doesn't really hit the mark in any category. It's plenty drinkable, but just no real standout. Worth trying, but definitely not a favorite.

A- Deep golden color with a hearty white head. This left ample lacing in the glass and was quite beautiful to look at.

S- Disappointing, and the most incomplete aspect of this beer. Yeasty aromatics with some hints of pear, but you really had to work to draw them out.

T- This was very sweet right away. It reminded me of some domestic Tripels. The yeast kicks in on the mid palate and leaves a hint of brioche on the finish with some light apple flavors. The sweetness persists throughout.

M- Soft and round which adds to the fruit and sugar mentioned above. Lacks refreshing character one looks for in a lighter beer.

O- Well crafted, but extremely sweet. This could pair well with sharp cheese or some spicy Asian dishes. The nose could be so much more considering that this is a flavorful beer.

A-750ml opens with a pop and a wisp of gunsmoke. Pours straw yellow with 2 inches fo creamy eggshell white head. Leaves stringy lacing.

S-Hand soap, grapefruit rind, white pepper, clove and coriander.

T/M-Intense prickly carbonation really hurts the mouthfeel in a big way. That, combined with overwhelming citrus rind dry bitterness overshadows the already muted spiciness. The finish is sharp, with a burst of clove.

O-Boring.

Pours a hazy pale yellow color with a white head. In the aroma, a slight gingerbread like malt and a mellow sweetness. In the taste, lemon citrus and mellow everything else, malt, hops, candy sugar. A small bite and a lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a dry lemon and small yeasty presence in the aftertaste. Lemon like presence is nice, but just about average.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Appearance: Pours a clear, yellow-hued body with a short-lived, very thin, white head.

Smell: Unimpressive, not too particularly appealing aroma of sugar laced apple, grape juice.

Taste: Candied sweetness, though little flavor of malts present. White grape, apple fruitiness. Minor spiciness. Transient alcohol quality. Low gum hint. Fairly sweet on the finish with a final touch of fruit.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Just a notch above medium carbonation.

Overall: A bit too basic, a bit too sweet. PIG. OUT.
