Bière d’une délicieuse couleur cuivrée, 4.5 %vol. est une bière avec une belle mousse parfumée par des houblons aromatiques américains et européen, enrobée d’une touche caramélisée. En bouche, c’est une bière précise, amère et harmonieuse.

UPDATED: NOV 2, 2014 Superbe couleur orange foncé; arômes et goût fruités et épicés; un leu d’acidité; bel équilibre entre douceur et amertume; la finale manque un peu de longueur; bonne bière

MiP (13955) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 7, 2015
Bottle, 4.5%. The aroma starts off citric, almost sour. Turns more citric, hoppy. Cloudy amber colour. OK white head. The flavour is moldy with a good Brett note. Not as citric as many other Brett beers, but with a good funky note. Other than that, it is fairly straightforward, even simple. But all in all good.

Thank you, Asbjørn.

SaintBonchien (6) - Sonceboz, SWITZERLAND - FEB 1, 2015 does not count
Ma bière classique de BFM favorite ! Cuivrée voilée avec une mousse assez pauvre, arôme assez fort et vif, notes de caramel, épices et un peu fruité, voire acidulé. Saveur franche, équilibre parfait entre douceur et amertume, corps moyen, pétillant et sirupeux. Finale assez persistante, moyennement intense et portée sur l’amer.

On tap at Tipi Bar Siviez, Switzerland. The only real craft beer bar on 4 Vallees ski area. There’s many bar/restauran at the slopes having Heineken, Cardinal, Erdinger, etc. but only here I’ve managed to find BFM beers. So I was pilgrim here every day. La Cuivree, La Salamandre and La Torpille available at the time. Orange/amber coloured, medium sized off-white head, mild fruity caramel nose. Sweetish malty, fruity, light spicy and caramel with notes of yeast in the finish. Pleasant one.

Full refreshing taste with nutty bitterness. The aftertaste is much more subtile with a bit more flower. Nice beer with awesome labels.

SinH4 (550) - SWITZERLAND - NOV 18, 2014
Nice brown color with good amount of foam. Aroma of flowery hops and a bit nutty with roasted malts. Taste is malty, bready, slightly sour and with a bitter finish. A good and easy beer, BFM’s standard.

eduardovl (998) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2014 330ml bottle served in a thumbler glass A: Pours a cloudy dark orange to amber color forming a medium soapy and creamy beige head. Good retention and lots of lingering lacings left in the glass S: Quite spicy and fruity. Lots of citrus flavors. Flowery and grassy hops. Orange zest. Strong notes of caramel malts. Bready and mainly earthy yeasts T: Slightly sweet malts upfront followed by a quite grassy and citrus hoppy bitterness. Notes of grapefruit, caramel malts and spices. In overall, a dry and bitter taste. Quite good and refreshing M: Light to medium body. Good carbonation. Bready aftertaste mixed with a citruses and considerable hops bitterness O: Good drinkability. Not an Euro Pale Lager, for sure (First of all, it’s an Ale!). I would classify it as a Belgian Pale Ale [ BA Review @ 7/23/2010 ]

Bue à la pression. Douce, légère et peu amère. Très agréable à boire, belle présence et longueur en bouche.
