COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Après le succès de la Bracine de Printemps et son houblonnage puissant, nous souhaitions développer une nouvelle gamme de bières de spécialité, encore plus ancrée dans la tradition brassicole. En effet le houblon était très largement utilisé dans les bières de nos ancêtres essentiellement parce qu’il en assurait la conservation. anosteke est donc une bière résolument houblonnée lui conférant ainsi une amertume et une longueur en bouche incomparables. De plus notre anosteke est la première bière française dont les émissions de CO2 liées à sa fabrication et son transport sont compensées (cf www.actioncarbone.org). anosteke = traduction phonétique de « tot anoste keer », expression de chez nous signifiant « à la prochaine »

jgb9348 (4749) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 2, 2014
Caution: This exploded upon opening with no extra shaking/movement at only a month or so old. Hazy golden coloured body with an orange glow and a thin, white head. The bubbles are gone after having exploded they aren’t anywhere to be found. Aroma of tons of grass, hay, spice, white pepper, light hops and a lot of herbs. Medium-bodied; Assertive grassy flavour with a lot of wheat and yeast flavours, some light fruits and a hint of herbs in the finish. Aftertaste has a nice balance of barnyardie flavours and malt with tufts of sweetness coming out at the end. Overall, a good example of a biere de garde FROM france, but for some reason this isn’t categorised in the proper style - this is not a belgian strong nor a belgian ale of any calibre but a saison at worst and a biere de garde as the closest. I sampled this stubby 33 cL bottle purchased from Whole Foods in New York, New York (Bowery) on 25-April-2014 for US$3.99 sampled at home in Washington on 02-June-2014.

Idiosynkrasie (3847) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAY 11, 2014
330ml bottle. Cloudy golden colour with average to huge, thick, creamy, fairly lasting and lacing, white head. Saison-like yeasty and herbal aroma, a touch of dill, brine, marinade. Taste is strawy, pale malty, slightly floral yeasty, spicy yeasty, slightly disguised notes of peach. Not bad.

A good example of how north brewers of France can as talentful as belgian brewers.

750 ml bottle poured a hazy yellow with a small lasting white head. Aromas of straw, yeast, barnyard funk and citrus. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of straw, yeast, citrus and light barnyard with a crisp dry lingering straw finish.

Bottle states Biere de Garde so here on ratebeer that means not Biere de Garde? Hmmm confusion. Thank you ratebeer. The 750mL bottle pours with a murky deep gold body that supports a dirty white head of foam. The aroma offers up sugary pears and apricot fruitiness as well as some cantaloupe and some spicy yeastiness. The taste starts with soft sugary sweet apricot and pear fruitiness edged by mild tart fruit skins and then flowing into spicy yeast. There is plenty of sweetness here that is trying to be balanced by spices and less sweet fruitiness but it doesn’t get there.

Light yellow colour and quite hazy. Very bitter finish with nice fruits, banana and hop aroma. A little bit too bitter beer for me but still I like quite much actually.
