peter48er (180) - Liverpool, Merseyside, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 12, 2009 Bottle conditioned 75cl. poured light brown with a head which soon subsided. Unusual in that neither imalt nor hops seemed to dominate. I would agree with the previous rater that there was some sourness but not off putting. Probably more ambree than noir but an OK beer overall.

Embrouille (2827) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 26, 2008
Bottled 33cl. It pours a light brown beer with a slightly tanned head. The nose is of soy sauce and nutmeg accompanied by a sour component. Malty. Huge amounts of soy sauce in the taste. Otherwise lovely woody. Slightly salty. Dry finish with a hint of licorice. Slightly smoky. Dissapointing.

Bottle. Murky orange brown with a small head. Aromas are caramel and light spiced orange. Floral and lightly herbal. Flavours are sweet caramel and milk chocolate. Some citrus fruitiness with yeast and bready notes. Spicy on the finish. Pretty good.

robinvboyer (3087) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 5, 2008
spicy aroma, with a touch of hops, and some malt. The spiciness follows into the flavour, with some nice hopping, and some smokiness...........interesting.

Nuffield (3671) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 4, 2008
This was called "Gwinz du ambree an ble noir" on the information. But it wasn’t "noir" at all, unless I’m incorrect to read that as "black"--it is much more "ambree" (amber). Malty and with a bit of interest for trying to pick out the buckwheat influence, but this is just drinkable, not remarkable. (at Mondial de la Biere, 2008, Montreal)

Quevillon (2481) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 29, 2008
Bière #19 au Mondial 08 (29/5/08), bouteille. Amrée orange, petit collet. Arome de malte d’épice citronné, un peu de céréal. Goût de malte agrumeuse, un peu houblonné avec de notes d’épice sucré et une finission sec. Intéressant mais pas plus!

This beer won’t blow anyone away at first, but it is interesting. Cool that it’s brewed to accompany buckwheat crepes... In that case I hope to re-rate it in its proper context someday. For now: pours dark brown with a tan head. Nose is not strong but offers sourish bread or toast aroma, and maybe cidery, fruity hints. Flavor offers a touch of grainy sourness, mild bitterness, and just a bit of roasty depth. Refreshing, subtle beer that won’t overwhelm lighter foods, and I reckon that’s the point. Not bad, anyway.
