  • Gallicus Pain Perdu
    rated 3.4 21 hours ago

    Aroma: 7 | Appearance: 7 | Mouthfeel: 6 | Flavor: 7 | Overall: 7

    Clean, golden-amber colour with an off-white head, average stay and some light dirty lacing. Fruity malt aromas with orange notes, caramel malts and herbal hops. A very slight haze appears later. The flavours continue the fruity, maltiness taste with a touch of grassiness in the end. Some drying element in the mouthfeel. A decent Pale Ale with some salvaged bread that fits right in, without being too off. Drinkable!

    Clean, amber-orange-red colour with a small fizzy head that stay a tad longer than normal, but no lacing is found. Beautiful strawberry aromas with the fruitiness, some herbal touch - all nicely blended with the sweetness. The taste shows off again the fresh strawberries with some light sourness that lingers. A nice dryish mouthfeel. Quite a nice Berliner Weiss with fresh strawberries.

    Aroma: 7 | Appearance: 8 | Mouthfeel: 7 | Flavor: 7 | Overall: 8

    A slight unfiltered, hazy, light-golden colour with a frothy white cap, good stay and leaving some nice foamy lacing. Mild, but good aromas of the straw malt base with a nice herbal, citrus touch. The mouthfeel is crisp and not too thin, with some character. Flavours of light citrus juices, some hints of zest, oats. A nice light Pale Ale that has a little more punch than most of this style.

    Hazy golden-orange colour with a big frothy-creamy head, very good retention and some nice creamy-bubbly lacing. Over the typical citrus and spicy-herbal hops in the aromas, you get this interesting nuttiness. It does resemble to roasted sesame seeds with its touch of oiliness. The fruitiness comes out more in the taste with loads of oranges, some clementines and a bunch of citrus peel creating decent bitterness, then dryness in the end. Still, quite highly refreshing, slick and slightly oily. Some of that spicy hoppiness appears as well in the mouth. This Riwaka is quite an interesting hops that adds a lot to these great juicy, fruity DIPAs.

    Lightly hazy, golden colour with a fizzy head, disappearing quickly, leaving no lacing. Sour, Bretty aromas with some vinous notes. Grapes, puckering a bit in the taste with lots of yeast, woody, grainy aftertaste. I might be a bigger fan of Cabernet Sauvignon, than Sour beers, but I do not find this works out very well. Bring back the Imperial stouts with lots of spices and more. Not a 6.2% ABV sour-blah.
