tom10101 (2613) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 19, 2012
Bottle (330 ml) swingtop. Best before 1999. From a friends uncle’s basement. Clear amber, no head and no lacing. Aroma of caramel and alcohol. Taste of caramel and slight acidic. Completely flat as expected. Mouthfeel is watery and body is thin. Still drinkable despite being way too old. I wasn’t sure it was a good idea to review that beer because I know it’s not the kind of beer that age particularly well and this one is 13 years past the best before date, but it was nice to try it and we still have a good idea of the original beer taste despite the age of this one.

Didn’t intend to give it such a low overall grade but this is a run of the mill beer. Foamy, very yellow for an amber. Murky finish. Not super beer. Bottle from De Schans.

Bon Secours ambrée. Ambre clair, un peu sur le roux... Etiquette avec un chien et une mention sur des Pères Brigittins (what?). Bouchon en céramique blanche à molette basculante et caoutchouc rouge à l’ancienne. Bof ! Grande saturation en gaz carbonique : boum à l’ouverture... Très belle mousse épaisse beige, qui nappe par la suite les parois du verre. Arômes sur les céréales, fleurs rouges (poppy), avec une légère pointe de cerise et d’oignon ! La texture est soyeuse, et le 1er goût confirme les arômes avec une pointe de candi, et du biscuit entre Petit Beurre et Petit Lu. La 2ème bouche oriente un peu plus sur la céréale, mais est encore sur le fruit doux (abricot, pêche, etc) La 3ème est sur la levure avec une pointe de caramel, et toujours une grande douceur dans la texture. La levure est un peu parfumée et portorisée... adaptée à une bière ambrée. La longueur est plutôt soft, et l’alcool est ok. La finale bien sûr révèle les limites de ce genre de bière... peu de complexité, peu d’équilibre, peu de houblon...

BlackHaddock (3479) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2012
Flip-top 33cl bottle, fairly fresh, poured into a Hoegaarden Grand Cru badged stemmed tulip glass. Slightly hazy golden body, a good firm white head sat on top at first, it fell to a thin covering with some laceing as the tasting progressed. Vinegarous aroma, mild, yet overpowering anything else. Sour tasting at first, then the hops and yeast get to work and it becomes easier to drink. Because it was so young (best before 03/2012, drank 10/2009) it was a bit fizzy and spritzy. Better than the ’on-tap’ one I had back in 2007: but only just.

Bouteille de 33 cl, couler ambrée-miel, trouble, mousse abondante de très belle tenue. Arômes caramélisés, fleuris, très subtils, pointe alcoolique en fin de bouche. Bonne carbonnation. Cette ambrée est ma préférée des "Bon Secours". trouvée à roby - Menin.

0,33l swing top bottle from beerplanet web shop. Hazy dark orange color with huge white head. Aroma of yeast, honey, toasted bread. Taste, oranges, yeast, citrus zest, caramel, light bitterness in background. Quite unpleasant tartness in finish. Alcohol is well present. Drinkable.

martinrumsam (484) - BARNSTAPLE, Devon, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2012
Nice amber haze with big white froth slowly dissipating . Fruity nose with some malt . Lively carbonation perfect for this beer leading to a nice full mouthfeel . Green fruits taste with a hint of sourness giving a refreshing feel .Long juicy finish with a little bitterness coming through . Alcohol does not show except for a slight pleasant lingering warmth . A nice beer

Yves (2094) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - JAN 8, 2012
Hazy amber coloured beer with large diminishing white head and lots of carbonation. Malty aroma. Full sparkling palate. Finish is slight roasted with rather bitter ending. Character beer. Nice!

Bottle from Asao. Rich, fruity nose, orange, aple, light caramel and raisin. Nice fine head on a typically amber beer. Caramel, light butterscotch, with alcohol, very tasty and rich malts. Apples. Nice amber flavor, slightly earthy. Sweet but restrained. Twsty, slightly fizzy. Rather light body
