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.

biz82 (1328) - austin, Texas, USA - JAN 4, 2006
Pours crystal clear amber with a few leasurely bubbles supporting a thin head. Very fruity aroma with toffee and spice and a few vegetable notes. Spicy, earthy caramel flavor with some candy sweetarts. Big, smooth body. Finishes sweet with some floral and candy orange flavors. If it weren’t for the mild astringency and a bit of dirtiness, this beer would be the best Biere de Garde I’ve had. Still great.

thegreenrooster (3644) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 2, 2006
Pour is a cloudy tan with a small white head. Aroma is a bit earthy and toffee. Flavor is almost like a dry wine. Very dark fruit with the right amount of malts used. Not alot of mustyness going on here unlike its blond brother but well worth it. Very tasty and a pleasure for all the sences.

HazelRah (276) - Summerland, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 14, 2005
Poured medium amber with long-lasting head. Nose was faintly of seafood and strongly of fresh malt. Flavour was somewhat sweet caramel with a warming cognac quality. Mincemeaty fruitiness. Very balanced and the malt had a lovely fresh taste too it. If I didn’t know better I’d say it was brewed just up the road rather than all the way over in France.

(BJCP Class) Strong wine fruity aroma. Reddish color with a very light head. Strong malt flavor not as sweet as you would think this could be. Slightly fruity taste (Dried fruit taste) like a strong beer. Interesting flavor feel very strong with the alcohol.

(750ml bottle) Pours a reddish brown body with an average-sized off-white head. Malty aroma with notes of toffee, prunes, and dates. Compatible flavor of malt, dark fruits (prunes, dates, raisins), spicy yeast, and earthiness.

Probiere (992) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 31, 2005
Not as much nuttiness and maltiness as I would have liked. However, there are distinct wood and honey notes mixed in with a gentle hint of white wine. The yeast was a little too much in eveidence and interfered slightly with the malt accents. Still, decent.
