COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Made in the tradition of artisan brewers, Sans Culottes is a blonde beer sur lie. Probably the best bière de garde for the uninitiated to start with. Packed in a 75 cls bottle with a wired-down cork, Sans Culottes sports a brilliantly eye-catching label showing a revolutionary soldier proudly wearing his pantalons, having wisely forsaken his culottes for the coming struggle.

Aroma: highly malty, apple juice aroma, similar to French chestnut beer I’ve had; Appearance: golden straw with somewhat hazy pour and thin, white head that dissipates quickly; Taste: not quite as malty as aroma, but definitely present; Palate: medium body with long, malty finish; Overall: better than chestnut beer but definitely not my thing.

LazyPyro (364) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2016
33cl bottle. Clear golden colour with a large but quickly dissipating white head. Aroma is earthy, yeast, bready, malt, fruit, bordering on being almost skunky, musty hay. Taste is kind of sweet malt, hops, but very yeasty, with earthy notes and actually quite some sourness comes through. Very fizzy carbonation, dry. Got better as it warmed up but can’t say it’s a favourite of mine, wasn’t what I was expecting.

Bottled. Orangeish golden colour with a small foamy/creamy white head. Aroma is fruity, some herbal, wooden and bready notes along with mild yeastiness. Flavour is fruity, floral, some wooden, bready and mild nutty and toffeeish notes. Get some mild berryish notes as it gets warmer.

Bottle. Dry, tasty, fruity beer. To me this had a piney flavour, was quite zesty and good blend.
