COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In the little town of Bavay, only a few miles from the border with Belgium, the Theillier family has crafted its fine bière de garde for generations. The charming brewery is built into the Theillier family home, which was constructed in the 1600’s on sturdy Roman foundations. La Bavaisienne is artfully brewed, in very small batches, using a resourceful combination of ancient and modern equipment.

Ungstrup (29850) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 7, 2006
An orange beer with a lot of sediment floating around underneath a disappearing orange head. The aroma is sweet spicy - with cinnamon being most dominant. The flavor is also sweet spicy with strong notes of cinnamon.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 8, 2006
(Bottle 75 cl) Amber golden with lots of ufos and a small, creamy, off-white head. Fruity aroma. Medium body with sweetish, fruity accents. No real bitterness. The highest rated French beer?? That can only be because it’s exported to the US. There’s much better stuff around guys... 061006

omhper (19974) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 27, 2005
Bottled. Dark amber, lively head. Buttery malt aroma, It’s well hopped with notes of grass, but it’s dominating feature is the soft, full, buttery malt character. It finishes with balanced, salty bitterness. A gem amongst French beers!

TBone (12999) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 20, 2007
Bottled 75cl as "Ambrée" (BB 05/2007)
Amber color, steady creamy off-white head. Grassy, woody hoppy nose. Grainy, dry and grassy flavor. Nothing is happening in this beer, it’s not bland bad but bland. Looks quite overrated.
