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 »

Bottle - 750mL crowned. Under the Biere de Garde moniker. Golden pour with a tall, fluffy white head. Aroma is fruity and floral with sweet malt notes, yeast, grass and candi sugar. Taste is very fruity and sweet with lots of malt notes, ripe fruits, yeast, candi sugar, grass, straw notes and bready malts. Body is medium with a strong, effervescent carbonation. Ends with more bready malts, sweet malt notes, fresh fruit, yeast, grassy notes, straw, floral hops and candi sugar. Tasty!

freretoc (731) - Besançon, FRANCE - APR 5, 2014
Bu en bouteille de 75cl, couleur blonde grosse mousse, bière intéressante au début de bouche mais qui fait beaucoup penser à une triple basique, pas incroyable non plus...

Renobob (665) - Besançon, FRANCE - APR 4, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 75cl. Bel équilibre houblon/levures qui en fait une bière agréable à boire (enfin faut aimer le houblon quand même). Très correcte !

It poured a hazy dark golden color with an off-white head. The aroma was of notes of fruits, straw and some malts. The taste was sweet with notes of malt, caramel, straw, some flowers with a bitter finish.

Bottle from Rare Beer Club. Pours clear apple cider copper with rocky white head. Aroma: well, that’s awfully pleasant. Bubble gum and cotton candy on the nose. Sort of a Dupont saison thing going on as well, with lemon, pepper and cracker. Taste: despite the cotton candy on the nose, this is remarkably dry. Mineral, pepper, with a short, crisp, lightly bitter finish. Bubblegum in the aftertaste. Copper finish picks up after the first few sips, but stays in check. Alcohol becomes a bit more present as well, lending something of a spicy quality. Palate: light/medium body, average carbonation. Overall: I’m actually digging this quite a bit. Wasn’t really expecting to coming into it, but I’m glad I didn’t let those reservations keep me from enjoying this one.

Also, watching Sideways while rating beer. It’s funnier than I remember it, probably because I drink ("taste") now. Of course, I’m only half an hour in as I type this, so it may fall apart before the end, but so far it ain’t bad.

750, corked. Aaaaand that’s it for the Rare Beer Club. Enough mediocre $46 shipments for this kid. Pours a hazy pale amber with a fizzy white head that hangs out for a while. Mild lemon and verbena nose, soft mineral notes. Fizzy light body. Starts out caramel, then goes coppery, then gets really coppery, and finishes really coppery.

Appearance: clear bright gold with a frothy, bubbly bright white head and decent lacing; second pour of the 750 revealed substantial sediment that changed the glass to a very hazy yellow. Aroma: bright citrus up front, with herbal honey, uncooked pie crust, green tea, and pepper. Taste: bitter citrus and floral hops, with herbal notes, a hint of tart green apple, and a bit of caramel and peppery yeast. Notes: dry, bitter, and lingering herb garden characteristics. Notes: Labeled as "Biere de Garde" but the write-up from the Rare Beer Club noted it’s the "Blonde". Pretty hoppy, herbal, and bitter for the style. Nice palate, but would have preferred a bit more honeyed sweetness to balance.
