This was such a neat beer to be able to try. I sampled this on the back of a bus traveling from Fontainbleau, France to Dijon, France. I bought the beer at a small wine shop in central Fontainbleau and even got a free glass with the brew. Courpalay, where the beer is brewed, is a small village Northeast of Fontainbleau.
Nose is distant, but showcases faint notes of brown sugar, cherries, strawberries and plums.
There is a dryness throughout the entire palate with lovely notes of cherries, oak, peppers, grapes and plums. Simply fantastic.

Lots of sediment, sickly amber color. Aroma is sweet and malty, flavor is a very bubbly amber malt with butter. Typical amber ale, but slightly lighter. Bottle from Mmmckay at the PreLabor Day Beer Tasting.

Doesn’t really taste like a beer Biere de Garde. More like an ordinary amber ale. Malty and sweet. Not offensive in the least. But nothing to remember. OK

Off-white head on an amber body. A good brew, not too bitter, well balanced. I got a 75 cl bottle, and I drank it over several days. It does not survive the fridge very well. Overall, a very drinkable beer, but not the best Ambrée I have tasted.

Longing fat white head with flowers aromas. Body is thick and light copper. Taste of light malt and spices with good balance of hops and bitterness.

A pretty solid beer. I’d drink it when it becomes warm if I were you. Strange advice? Strange things come from french attempts at beer.

Honnetement, Qui s attends à boire une bonne biere provenant du 77?
Et pourtant une bonne trouvaille bien goulayante de dessous les fagots!
