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.

Bottle shared with koleminer20. Best buy October 30, 2009? Jesus Christ. Thanks Oliver T’s. Aroma is slightly tart, fruit, malt, eh. Appearance is copper brown, off white head, slight haze and a little chunky. Taste is sweet malt, week, slight bitterness, good lord This is wrong. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, watery, super light carbonation, garbage. Overall, guess I should’ve checked the bottle. This is wrong.

750 mL bottle shared by ebone1988 for this piece of shit book. Fuck Oliver T’s for selling a beer that’s best before October 30 2009. The pour is a chunky amber color with a thin ring of off white head and a couple spots of lace. The aroma is dominated by sweet malts. I wish I could find something other than sweet malts. This should be a disaster. The flavor is sweet malt. There is a lot of caramel and toffee with a strong breadiness. This sucks. There is nothing else. The mouth feel is thin and watery. There is no carbonation and a lingeringly terrible malty dominance. It’s sweet toffee and caramel. This is garbage. Down the drain she goes. Fuck this.

DuffMan (9016) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 3, 2016
Bottle. Different label than pictured here, but the name and Brewer fit. Very lively very hazy golden amber. Pale cereal malts, honey, cooked pineapple, a hint of bandaid. I’m thinking this is old...

darbeer75 (340) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - MAY 19, 2016
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 (427) - 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.
