Time for another cracking beer from Falmignoul brewery Brasserie Caracole and another beer that features the trademark snail on the label.

A hazy straw/gold coloured beer with a large bubbly head that slowly recedes to a thin creamy lasting covering. Aroma is very fruity, full of apricot and citrus, then the typical heady combination of banana and clove along with a hoppy/bready note before finishing with a twist of citrus/lemon.

Taste starts sweet (almost honey like) then bready malts are detected along with light hops and subtle spices, orchard fruits like apple and pear  are there as well before finishing with a delicate floral edge.

Medium carbonation provides the perfect mouthfeel, lively yet creamy and smooth........another winner.
