This looked good and smelled good from the start. A nice warm, hazy colour and sweet, fruity smell. The taste was quite good too. Nice sweet, citrus flavour with no bitter after taste. I checked the bottle and found it was a mix of wheat and barley. Is that the norm for a wheat beer? Anyway, it certainly hit the spot. At last a French beer I liked. Then I read the bottle again..
It's brewed by Scottish & Newcastle. It's strictly speaking a British beer so I'm still looking for a good French one. I wonder is the French one better? If it is then it would be fantastic.
Would I buy it again?
Yes and I'd like to try the French one too!
