Particularités de la bière de Saint Nicolas

La bière de Saint Nicolas est un clin d’oeil au passé. La Brasserie de Saint Nicolas de Port était l’une des nombreuses brasserie de Lorraine. Sous le coup des restructurations,cette brasserie est maintenant transformée en musée.

Nous avons souhaité faire revivre ce symbole en brassant à nouveau une bière de Saint Nicolas. En dégustant cette bière ambrée non filtrée, aux notes de biscuits et à l’amertume bien présente, vous vous replongerez peut-être au temps de la grande Lorraine brassicole.

Si vous souhaitez découvrier l’histoire de la bière en Lorraine et en France, nous vous conseillons vivement de visiter ce musée à deux pas de nancy

GoufCustom (950) - HONG KONG - JAN 15, 2015

330 ml bottle as part of the brewery’s limited edition assorted 8-pack bought at Tecstar’s booth at HKCEC in Wan Chai during The 12th Hong Kong Food Festival.

Translucent amber colour with faint trace of dusty yeast particles; Near zero head and residual soay white foam which fades in 5 seconds; Minimal sticky lacing and barely notable carbonation; Sweet aroma of malt, with strong caramel, toffee, canned pineapples, dark fruits, sugar, light spices, bread, light yeast, light lemon and grass; Medium sweet taste of light malt, with cookies, plums, dark fruits, strong caramel, strong molasses, moderate alcohol, dry bread, yeast, strong lime and quite strong bitter grassy hops; Mid to light body. Slick and quick thick palate; Mouth feel is pretty solid Amber Ale maltyness in a rather thick body. Strong caramel to starts followed by tasty cookies and dark fruits. Strong molasses sweetness with notable boozy taste. Yeast is a tad light. Hoppy round up. Not bad… Hoppiness is lemon and grass in nose. Strong lime and fairly grassy hops in taste. Bitterness is quite strong for an abrupt astringent sweet-bitter finish; Fairly dry after taste. Thick and strong sweet-bitter to mouth.

Comments: This is my second bottle of Lorraine beers that suffers a lack of carbo. There’s virtually no head but the carmel fruity aroma and thick cookie boozy taste keep me interested. If a lively carbo is here, this one will hit the jackpot. Oh well, quite enjoyable still.

Bottled (backlog). Deep ambery brown colour, with a tiny slightly off-white head. Aroma is wood, some resin, mild caramel, quite sweet malts and some slight alcoholic sweetness. Flavour is cookies, some bitterness, mild yeast and spices as well as some wooden notes. In a way a bit thin, but still the alcohol does show through.

bartlebier (2366) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - DEC 9, 2014
33cl bb12/2014, courtesy of jaghana, merci. Yeast-hazy dark amber, nose of old speculoos, spicy yeastiness, oregano spaghetti sauce somehow as well. Taste is drier and much hoppier than the aroma would lead to expect and quite enjoyable, with a lingering earthy finish. Ambrée nose, bière de garde taste.

jerohen (2049) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - NOV 7, 2014
Bottled, thanks to LeoR. Dark golden colored, very small dying head. Somewhat spicy nose, some hops. Malty flavor, quite watery, some alcohol. Very much middle of the road, not really impressive.

330 ml bottle. F. BB 08/2014. Kahdet Kasvot, Tampere, Finland. Dark reddish brown colour with no head. Malt, mild tartness, caramel sweetness and mild hops in the bocky aroma. The flavour is biscuit, yeast, malt, yeasty bitterness, caramel sweetness and mild hoppy bitterness. Quite bocky brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Xenomorph (61) - Sundgau, FRANCE - JAN 19, 2014
Bière blonde trouble. Très peu de mousse et persistance courte. Onctueuse, légèrement amère et bien maltée. Je la trouve également un peu acide en entrée de bouche. Fin de bouche courte, dommage.

Erzengel (4745) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 1, 2013
Vollmundiger, malziger Antrunk. Der Hauptteil ist relativ herb, zum Nachgeschmack hin kommt eine tolle Kräuter-Bittere Note, ähnlich wie Underberg. Der Nachgeschmack ist lang, herb und Kräuterwürzig!
