Bov (9050) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - NOV 2, 2010
from Mondial de la Bière 2010, Strasbourg - translucid bright reddish-amber colour with no foam left; a fair aroma of chestnuts; pretty oily palate and a modest malt backbone, a solid but subtle carbonation, some late tartness and quite sweet; long chestnutty finish - one-dimensional but not unpleasant

jaghana (3488) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - OCT 24, 2010
Bottle 33cl from Mondial de la bière. A clear light amber beer with no head and very low carbonation. Aroma is lightly on chestnut at the beginning and after that nothing, a watery beer, no malt, no hops, nothing, very boring.

rand (1220) - SWITZERLAND - APR 22, 2010
Bouteille 33 cl de la brasserie à Vals-les-Bains (F). Bière couleur marron-ambrée, petite mousse fine et timide. Le parfum se concentre sur le marron, malt fruité. Goût frais, plutôt mince, douceur du marron et pointe de vanille. Touche de champignons des bois et de chocolat au lait. Plus sèche en finale, assez longue, agréable surtout sur place dans la belle Ardèche.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2009
A Mes rate. Bottle at Borefts 10am day after hotel tasting.
Hazy orange with a shortlived white head. Rather boring concoction of vanilla and toffee with an obvious hit of chestnut. Faint chocolate and more nutty stuff in the finish. Nothing special.

Oakes (11770) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 18, 2009
Golden-amber. Light chestnut aroma with some fruitness. Very sweet, honeyish character. Chestnut taste with light florals. Fairly good malt character despite the sweetness. However, it is clean and filtered.
