Bonne bière bien agréable, ne change pas trop de la 3 monts classique, un peu plus complexe...

Kastanjebruin met crèmekleurige kraag. Beetje drop, caramel en snoepjes. Kerstbier achtig. Wel lekker.

budedou (781) - Saint Etienne, FRANCE - JUN 27, 2016
Slightly hazy golden colour, small white head. Aroma of sweet, rotten fruit. Ful-bodied, and, oh my God, sweeeeeet and sugary plus lots of rotten fruit. No hops detectable, this is just horribly sweet. Not my cup of beer at all.

Clear amber body, medium creamy head. Aroma of alcohol, stone fruits, caramel, grain. Flavours of alcohol, stones fruits, caramel, malt. Medium warm caramel finish. Medium body, high carbo. A bit too simple and alcohol forward. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Silvan7 (1086) - Samarate, ITALY - MAY 23, 2016
Bottle @ home. Dorata, con riflessi ambrati limpida, schiuma bianco sporco non molto fine di media persistenza. aroma debole, speziato di coriandolo, e caramello, lievito tipo belga, quasi fruttato, marmellata di albicocche. Dolce amabile, alcolica, caramellata, speziata e fruttata. molto calda, poco carbonata, rotonda. non molto equilibrata, l’alcool è un po’ invadente, non c’è luppolatura a bilanciare. Abbastanza armonica nel complesso.

Grzesiek79 (3947) - Radom, POLAND - MAY 3, 2016
Nietypowe zamkniecie, ciekawe to naprawdę, naturalny korek i spore wysycenie. Zapach mało wyrazisty suszone morele i ananasy. Piana srednia, mało trwala i grubo pecherzykowa. Kolor jasno bursztynowy z pomarańczowymi refleksami. Smak typowo francuski podobny do Biere de Garde, lekko slodowy ale i lekko chmielny. Delikatne piwo o sporej mocy. Przy braku metnosci prawie 10% doskonale ukryte.

Cerveja forte clara com 9,5% álcool. Espuma densa e farta. Corpo denso com aroma frutado e com baixo amargor.

sulawang (1006) - British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 2, 2016
Visual: Hefty bottle, corked and plastic sealed. Pours dull copper brown with a small dissipating creamy head, half sticky lacing, a few clusters of steady micro streams. Nose: light alcoholic, liquid toffee sweet barley malts. (lvl-7)-pungency Attack: crisp, incoming alcoholic malts Mid-palate: background alcohol, sustained micro-fizzy & creamy CO2, (lvl-7)-sweetness, (MAIN) brown sugar, cinnamon, toffee barley malt, zingy alcohol Finish: woody barley, alcohol numbness, residual malty finish. Summary: Good rounded bubbly CO2 texture to help carry the sweet and alcoholic body to the finish. It could use a bit more complexity.
