freretoc (1023) - Besançon, FRANCE - AUG 23, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 33cl, couleur brune/ambrée, effervescence moyenne tout comme la mousse, une bière assez agréable avec une première bouche très floral et à peine épicé. Fin de bouche grillé mais bien équilibré. En revanche aucune saveur sur la gentiane.

harrisoni (14587) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 30, 2014
Bottle from Terre de Boissons Calais and drunk at home. Hazy light brown colour with a lasting beige head. Malty nutty and a little fungusy aroma. Nutty yeasty malty beer. Soft on the finish. Vague hop. OK if not great.

seynie (220) - Tienen, BELGIUM - JUL 25, 2014
Darker amber, like chestnut actually. Medium foamy top. The chestnut is only mildly there, mostly malt and candice sugar but well balanced. Short finish with dryness and nuts

psilosophy (541) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - JUL 19, 2013
Bouteille de 33 cl. Couleur ambrée, léger trouble, mousse correcte de tenue moyenne. Un arôme de noix, noisette plus encore que celui de la châtaigne, celui apparait clairement en fin de bouche, des arômes de terre, de sous-bois. Carbonnation pétillante. Pas spécialement très bonne mais pas dénuée d’intéret non plus. Origine Auvergne.

SilkTork (5358) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2013
330ml stubby brown bottle. Christmas gift - part of an assorted six pack from the brewery. Cloudy amber-orange colour with big foam head. Dusty ginseng aroma. Taste is mild French amber ale - biere de garde - with that ginseng again. Drinkable, and oddly interesting, but I’m not sure it’s a flavour that will catch on, or that is terribly attractive in itself. There’s a sense of the gimmick about these beers from Desprat Vins.

ogivlado (6157) - Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 20, 2012
Bottled 330ml. -Cloudy amber coloured, small off-white head, some odd dry berries in the nose. Malty caramel and odd fruity like taste with pretty metallic finish. Interesting but not so good.

Idiosynkrasie (4539) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - AUG 16, 2012
330ml bottle [Thanx Claudius!]. Cloudy amber colour with average, firm, frothy to creamy, minimally lacing, white head. Caramel malty aroma with a fruity touch of plums, additionally a herbal note like mint (supposedly the gentian). Taste is initially slightly watery, minimally herbal, later with fuller, minimally fruity malt basis, in the finish herbal again and minimally spicy. Not completely bad, but too light bodied and not overly complex despite the special ingredients.

JEK69 (396) - FRANCE - MAY 25, 2012
This pours amber with thin foam head. Aromas: vegetable, burnt rubber. Mouth: basic strong carbonation like sparkling water, green aftertaste, short. Not good.

Ungstrup (29988) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2012
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of malt, caramel and dusty hops. The flavor is sweet with notes fo malt, caramel, and hay.
