COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
La Choulette Ambrée is the classic amber version of a French bières de gardes. It has a wonderfully spicy aroma and is fullflavored, but effervescent and refreshing.

LIked the blonde more. Not much aroma and an odd taste that sticks to the gums in a bad way. Okay, but nothing wonderful.

Amber with a small offwhite head. Nutty aroma. Malty, nutty flavor, mixed with some nice bitterness.

Radek Kliber (7114) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - NOV 20, 2006
Bottle (Volo) Fine haze, amber light brown. Good solid fine tanned top, nice lacing. Pleasant nose, malty, gentle aromatic hops with hints of spice and yeast. Slightly earthy, woody in character with semi-sweet malt touch. Smooth and very easy to drink. Be aware this one is 8 %. Classic.

bought in Lille: The best of biere de gardes that I’ve tasted in France. aroma is carmel. amber beer with good head and good lacing. flavor is carmel and spice without that unfortunate leathery note that other biere de gardes have had that just turns me off. its too stong and reminds me of an attic. alright texture. still i the world of beer this is not that special. Will stick to belgian ales probably from now on, even if I am in France.

thebeertourist (5179) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 12, 2006
75 cl bottle. Clear copper-coloured with a good ofwhite head. The nose promises raisins and caramel and just a hint of dusty cellar. Complex raisins and caramel flavours with dry cellar flavours appearing gradually making for a semi-dry finish. Rather light body for this strength as is characteristic for the style. Warming alcohol. A great biere de garde (that lives up to its style).

bfeldmann (1049) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - OCT 4, 2006
Poured an amber color with a ton of sedimentation. Aroma was of apples grapes. Beer was nice and tart. Flavor was much the same. Alcohol was not hidden well at all, but beer was pretty good.

Stefano (1956) - Thisted, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2006
Slighty hazy red amber body, with a good velvety off white head. Fruity, spicy and malty aroma followed by lots of malt flavor with some horse leather/must lingering in the background. Some phenolic and some esters notices as well.

eaglefan538 (3027) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - OCT 2, 2006
Poured an amber color, somewhat cloudy, sedimentation at the bottom of the bottle. The aroma was light pineapples over tart apples and some caramel. The flavor was apples, grapes, sourness factor underneath, some spices, pepper, overall fruity tones. Alcohol was a little hot for a biere de garde. Mouthfeel was tart/sour combined, a little too much so for what I was expecting from the style, not as "crisp" as other biere de gardes.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - OCT 1, 2006
Bottle. Darker copper color with very active carbonation. Light tan head. Spicy, yeast aroma with some caramel and toast notes. Sweet and malty with a bubblegum flavor. More toast, some astringency, and a bit of fruit, apples or grapes mostly. Dry finish.
