Bon Secours Ambrée gives an elegant look in its copper color with a subtle blend of pale malts and caramel. Its foam is creamy and persistent. On the palate, it is dry and develops a long and fine bitterness. Bottle conditioned. Ingredients: water, barley malt, candi sugar, hops, yeast.

Migmar (255) - Espoo, FINLAND - OCT 22, 2015
Amber colour, big head. Fruity, malty and yeasty. Medium sweetness, low bitterness. Refreshening, earthy, can believe this really is a "living" beer as advertised on the label.

330ml flip-top bottle bought at Craftissimo in Tsim Sha Tsui East.

Cloudy hazy straw dull plum brown colour with a thick crust of of black yeast sediments; One-quarter finger head and residual off-white foam which fades in 20 seconds; Good sticky lacing and near zero carbonation; Very fragrant aroma of malt, with strong strong Cointreau, brandy, caramel, toffee, sugar, strong Bel yeast, lime and light grass; Strong sweet taste of moderate malt, with light Cointreau, shades of brandy, light caramel, light plum, shades of red fruits, alcohol, molasses, sugar, strong Bel yeast, light lime, light bitter hops and grass; Close to medium body. watery palate; Mouth feel is like a watered-down Bush Ambree: the amber malt taste is strong but it’ s very watery to the tongue. The strong Ambree’s signature brandy and orange liquor profile, as well as sweetness and booze, are all there but kinda de-amplified by the watery feel. Why?... Hoppiness is light lime and light grass in nose and taste. Bitterness is low but detectable for an abrupt, light astringent boozy sweet finish;Wet after taste. Easy and sweet watery to mouth.

Commments: With this brew, I just can’t help but to think someone must have diluted a decently-made, high-abv strong Ambree (in the caliber of Bush’s beers) , into this watery half-arsed product. all the attribute of a liquor-ish, sweet and boozy Belgian amber ale is ruined its really watery effect. Disappointing.

Robe orangée, légèrement opaque. La mousse se forme et tient bien. Saveurs de caramel bien marquées. On sent bien les fruits jaunes. Longue en bouche. Une bonne ambrée.
