Cloudy brown beer. Frothy white head. Soft frothy palate. Creamy malt with with a mildy sour caramel streak. Dry soft finish with a trace of aniseed. Typical French beer - soft and sweet and that’s fine by me!

dornoy (701) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 30, 2005
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.

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.

Deep amber colour with a fairly prominent corky aroma. Lightly dusty and minerally over the fairly sweet malts. Caramel, toffee and a bit of orange peel as well. Soft toffee and light pilsner malt base. Fairly low bitterness but there is a bit of butterscotch in here as well. Light lingering sweetness with a bit of fruitiness and orange citrus over the otherwise sweet maltiness. It’s kind of a strange beast, but it’s not bad at all.

My Bottom Line:
Earthy, rural breezes brush this Bière de Garde’s nutty, toasted malts, as strawberries angles suggest depth.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-There is barely any foam atop the misty red.
-The yeast pour adds more character.
-Hops are hard to perceive, adding very mild herbal, peppery notes in the end.
-This is undercarbonated, decreasing drinkability.
-.Malt flavors are well defined throughout.
