eduardovl (865) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
330ml bottle served in a La Trappe chalice. I’ve bought three bottles pack in a Carrefour supermarket at Divonne-les-Bains, France. A: Pours a golden yellow to orange color. Slightly cloudy. Forms a medium and thin bubbled white head. Medium to low retention and some lingering and molasses lacings left in the glass S: Very sweet. Quite fruity too. Strong notes of candy, honey, orange peel and chestnuts. Sweet grains and bready yeasts. Some spicy notes, maybe some pepper. Light notes of alcohol to such a "high" ABV T: Sweet in the mouth too. Strong notes of honey, candy sugar, orange peel, sweet malts, chestnuts, vanilla. Mild but present bitterness. Good bittersweet balance M: Medium to heavy body. Quite light to a 8% beer. Fruity bittersweet aftertaste O: Good drinkability. Good surprise for the ones expecting one more shitty french beer. Perhaps a bit too sweet and the chestnut taste is also a bit overwhelming but, in overall, an interesting Strong Pale Ale with a unique character [ BA Review @ 9/14/2013 ]

Bottle a gift from Amy. Yellow a bit cloudy. With white foam that lasts and sticks well to the sites of the glass. Mild aroma of fruit, apricot, mixed with malty alcohol. Malt, hint of fruit with alcohol, strong grapefruit bitterness in the aftertaste becoming more metalic and peppery as it grows. Medium carbon medium body.
