COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2006
A Mes rate: 33cl bottle at Lowlander. Hoppy aroma with a hint of germoline. Great appearance. On the golden side of amber and a huge thick pillowy head no matter how gentle the pour coupled with the most ridiculous chunky lacing I have ever seen. Apple and slight spice in the flavour. Lovely spritzy mouthfeel with an unexpected creamy finish. Much better than the other Bon Secours I have tried.

CampbellWilson (533) - SCOTLAND - JAN 6, 2006
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Sparkling amber with persistant head. Aroma of spice, toasty malt, orangey hop, candy sugar. Fairly sweet in the mouth but with a licoricey astringency along with hop in the finish.

Sten (731) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - NOV 10, 2005
A nice amber colour with a fluffy white head. The aroma is a bit malty. The flavour is boring and the aftertaste disgusting. (Bottle 33cl)

freekyp (1873) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - SEP 1, 2005
The murky brown brew’s aroma is awash in raisins and caramel. Absolutely amazing nose. Capped by a slight white head, the initial mouthfeel is sour, sweetening quickly into a long caramel sweet finish. Doughy yeast flavors abound and easch sip brings a new flavor to the forefront. Complex and emminently enjoyable, this burly brew needs an equally burly food to match.

leaparsons (9684) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2005
Bottle. Muddy brown with an off-white head. Aromas are sweet malts, Ovaltine, fruit and sticky toffee. Flavours are sweet malts with dry powdery cocoa. Fruity and smooth with yeast and spices. Not bad.

sayravai (4708) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 17, 2005
(Bottled, BBE 03/2007) Hazy amber color, murky light brown with yeast. Large, foamy head with lace. Strong, sweetish berry aroma with caramel. Slightly earthy and tart. Earthy, sweetish caramely flavor of berries, yeast, mixed fruit, toffee, and some alcohol hints. Medium-bodied, thick and foamy palate. Not very carbonated after pouring, though. Quite balanced, enjoyable and reasonably complex brew. Another good one from Caulier.

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - AUG 16, 2005
Bottle. Cloudy orange-amber with huge head. Fizzy, orange tartness, medium bodied, pleasent enough but most ambrees dont thrill me.

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 28, 2005
Deep murky amber, lasting off-white cover, nice lacing. Peppery yeast dominate the nose, but is no afraid of letting the ofrange, honey and cognac nuances shining through. Mango and heavy yeast come up in the foreground in a floral sheet way. Dry breadiness is soaked in a big alcohol jar before dipping into those noble hops. Doughy to a max, grassy and applesauce like finish. Smooth soft carbo, light to moderate carbonation, medium bodied. Leaves with a burn, there certainly is work to be done with the alcohol, but complex and with unusual yeast flavors.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Dark amber with a nice but not fully stable head. Fresh caramel-like nose. Some "ambrées" are a bit sharp in their bitterness, but tjhis one has a slightly sweet caramel-like touch and comes with added candi sugar. Lovely spicy and very potent. Unique and a wonderful surprise - and great looking in it’s slim, elegant swing top bottle. 151199

Ernest (7249) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 26, 2005
Bottle, Brussels, May 2005. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy light amber, bottle conditioned. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted bread, cookie), lightly hoppy (flowers), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with a note of peach. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium to full body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. The Bon Secours line is probably the most aromatically clean/untainted of what comes out of the Caulier facility...the blonde, brune, and amber are all decent, drinkable brews. This one’s pretty sweet, but it’s pretty good.
