3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bouteille de 25cl. Une couleur franchement ambrée, une mousse honnète qui tient correctement. Elle ressemble clairement à son illustre soeur : la Jenlain ambrée, le malt torréfié, le caramel et le bouquet automnal. Toutefois, malgrè un degré d’alcool légèrement inférieur, elle semble un peu plus corsée et accessoirement, un peu moins bonne! Trouvée à 8 à 8 - Vitry en Artois

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Orange, with a smaller head. Unpleasant aroma. I certainly taste some citrus, probably orange. Kind of like a bad orange soda. Not very good.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
NOUVEAU GOUT. Dark red in color, rich with a tight-bubbled, tan, sustained head. Aroma is intense with tangerines and candied apple, sweet, and a touch of chocolate. Flavor is same as the aroma. Simple, straightforward, good development of intense flavors (to the point of almost being overwhelming) on the palate, lush for such a low alcohol beer, and pretty unique. Just a right amount of bitterness hits late in the profile to finish the beer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a dark reddish color with a quickly disappearing white head. Smell is of orange peel and some spice. Taste is sort of like watered down orange pop, which isn’t a good thing. This could have been so much better, but it wasn’t. Mouthfeel was thin, with medium carbonation. I didn’t really care for this one, I would maybe try it again in a very distant future.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
color is rusted deep red. Aroma reminded me of kids medacine with the yeast, light sweetness and odd fruit mix of grape and pit fruit. Taste was robust malt but a little different. Good experience to have but not amazeing.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Labeled as Winter. Pours amber with a fizzy off white head. Aromas of caramel malts, spice, and a touch of spice. Flavor is light dark fruit, bubbly carbonation, spice, and a warming finish. Decent

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice amber biere de garde. Spicy, fullbodied. The aftertaste has some kind of orange-like bitternes, which I do not like.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Citrusy, spicy and sweet. The distinctive nose and head of orange is very winter-like.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Medium pillowy head. Golden amber colored. Smells like caramel and spices. Starts flat, but becomes really complex as it warms. And I though nothing good came from France.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Small bottle at Ambleteuse, France) Amber-colored beer with a thick head. Taste was very abrussive bitter.
