Nose
Full, creamy pale malt. Mellow fruit (melon and tropical). Spicy yeast notes.
Palate
Smooth, sweet malt upfront. Fruit remains largely in the background. Spicy hop notes are regrettably obscured by wet paper oxidation flavours. Suggestions of liquorice in the bitterness.
Finish
Bittersweet, dry and fairly chewy. Fruit and malt sweetness linger along with spicy hops.
Comment
A blonde French beer that is a touch too thick in the finish.
