COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Traditional Gaulish beer, on yeast, unfiltered an unpasteurized, at 6% alc. Produced on malted barley, it is aromatized with seven different plants an a touch of honey, which give this beer an exceptional aroma. Serve this luminous amber beer at between 8 and 12 deg. C, in a wide glass (or a drinking horn) and remember to let yeast fall to the bottom of the bottle. Do not drink more than two or three glasses of Cervoise at a time, and the sky won't fall on your head, in the name of Toutatis!

Pours a brown and opaque colour with fluffy head which settles over time leaving some lacing. Aroma is boiled sweets, spicey, malt and a definite Belgian style yeast with stewed fruit as well. Quite a lot going on there! Taste is surprisingly mild, low sweetness when I was expecting something syrupy, medium bitter and quite "savoury" tasting, not a whole lot going on on the finish althouh pleasant enough, rather earthy on the finish which I found pleasing. A little watery in texture although noticably carbonted. Overall this is pretty nice, certainly above average and an enjoyable gift!

eduardovl (915) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
330ml bottle served in its own tulip like glass. Enjoyed in Sion, Switzerland during Christmas time. A: Pours a hazy amber color forming a medium bubbled yellow head. Medium retention and some lacings left S: Sweet and spicy in the nose. Notes of caramel malts, honey, herbs, candy sugar. Yeasts are bready and kind of Belgian. Light notes of flowery hops T: Sweet malts upfront with notes of candy sugar, caramel, honey and herbs. In overall, a sweet beer with practically no hops bitterness. Bready yeasts M: Medium body and carbonation. Sweet grains and spicy aftertaste O: Good drinkability. Quite sweet and spicy but not overwhelming. Pleasant beer from my favourite French brewery so far [ BA Review @ 12/25/2012 ]

gegwilson (1378) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2014
Part of a pack from a French supermarket. Pours amber with a fairly decent cream head. The taste is hop spice over a caramel base. Generally a bit thin and bitter. OK

TimE (3298) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 21, 2014
malty amber beer, candy sugar, some apricots. Not a bad Belgium style beer, but fairly forgettable

VDuquerroux (338) - Airvault, FRANCE - AUG 17, 2014
Bottle, 33cL. Home. A brown opaque beer with a big off-white head. Medium retention. Spicy aroma, caramel, herbs, sugary fruit, biscuit/honey. Medium sugary sweet, light refreshing bitter. Medium body, silky texture, good carbonation, short bitter finish with a sugary note. Overall, a nice "cervoise" : good aroma and texture.

Benzai (8747) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 28, 2014
Bottle shared by my parents, they brought it from holiday. Gusher alert! Opaque murky amber color, small off-white lacing, no real head. Aroma has loads of herbs and spices: clove, cinnamon, nutmeg, koriander. I suck at identifying the specific herbs or spices, but there’s loads of them in this beer so at least some are correct I’m sure. Taste fortunately is less herbal and less spiced. Drinkable, but not my beer.

DJoer (744) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 27, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 21, 2014 Medium white head, chestnut brown colour, co2 ginger malty smell, medium to high carbonation low bitter but later in the drink some liquorise/drop bitter and taste a suprising taste not that common

12oz bottle from Cave a Bieres in Toulouse pours a hazy dark orange with lots of foamy white head. Nose has a ton of herbs, lavender and rosemary mostly, soap, yeast, some chestnut honey, some orange. Flavor the same, bouqet garni, lavender, soap, honey, lime, malt, yeast. Lightly astringent, soapy finish.
