Orange golden, with a very persistent head, that is only slightly off white. A warm aroma of autumn honey fills the nose. In the mouth te honey is joined by stewed stone fruits. Nice.

Decent Blond with a big, fine, persistent and bright white head that sticks to the glass. The aroma has some fruity sourness in it, while also being slightly sweet. I taste some green apple and get a hint of banana, with some distant, non descript spice. COB is on to something with this beer, but the very fine, yet abundant carbonation overtakes from time to time.

Another beer by this lovely brewery. I guess it is pretty clear what this one is named after. The label shows the beautiful Sainte-Croix cathedral in Orleans, which was frequented by Joan of Arc. I was looking forward to this beer. It pours a nice dark amber with a firm beige head. Unfortunately something is really off. I almost suspect it is contaminated with something, but probably just a brewing error. Too bad, but this was a one way trip to the drain...

Pils, Avoine and Crystal Chocolat malts, Aramis hop and S04 yeast with added cacao. After popping the cork I immediately smelled the most intense and definite dark chocolate aroma I ever smelled in a beer. It pours a very dark murky brown to black with a nice two finger beige head that disappears quickly. Chocolate and coffee notes are not as intense as the aroma, but are certainly the in the round, malty roasted body. In the long aftertaste strong milk coffee might suddenly pop up. This might not be my favourite beer style, but you have to appreciate the quality. A beer to easily enjoy.

Boy, did this beer want out of the bottle! As soon as the cork wasn't air tight anymore, it started squirting out. The same, very fine carbonation that is nice in the drink had apparently build up some pressure. Aroma is very distant but is reminiscent of a Witbier. Besides the fine carbonation mentioned earlier, it is clear and it is white to blond coloured. At first it pours just foam, but that quickly reduces to a nice head an then promptly dies until a lace ring remains. The pallet is crisp, subtle and refreshing. There are hints of citrus, orange peel and cilantro (none of it actually added) and a mild bitterness that sticks to the tongue. A nice, refreshing and light #summerbeer22

Elle manque de caractère mais sa douceur nous fait tranquillement finir une journée de canicule sans nous mètre une bonne claque. Tout y est mais il manque ce petit plus qu’y font les très bonne IPA

A reddish colour with a head in the lightest shade of pink, that died before I could take a picture. The aroma has some cherry and later some oak and is reminiscent of a really mild kriek. The flavour has some subtle cherry hints and a pleasant, mild sourness. The aftertaste has a, ever so slight, bitterness and a long lingering pleasant feel of sour and cherries. Nice, would drink this again. #summerbeer22

#summerbeer22 The first souvenir beer and the second one I drink of this brewery. A firm and persistent white head covers the hazy blond liquid. The initial aroma contains citrus zest and some floral notes. The beer is light and subtle, but very enjoyable and the floral notes also get through in the flavour. Like flower honey without the sweetness. Nice.

An impromptu beer haul, while camping in France near Orleans, going where the wind takes us. The current camp hosted a small fair with local artisans. One of the merchants was the local (Olivet) brewery COB. I cooled down the big bottle and shared it over some very good burgers. It was a lovely, crisp, fresh and well hopped IPA, with refermentation in the bottle. Lovely fruits and a mild bitterness. Pleasantly aromatic too. I cant tell you the colour, due to coloured, plastic camping "glass"ware.

Une bière de Noël assez légère mais avec des notes très agréables et bien marquées !
