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.

hotstuff (4058) - Indiana, USA - OCT 4, 2004
Bottle. Large ivory head with fne-medium sized bubbles that mostly diminished. Fast rising carbonation and a dark orange hue. Malty, fruity, spicy and alcohol aroma. Flavor was delicious-malty and alcohol. Palate was tingly and some burning sensation. Medium bodied beer with sparse lacing. Worth a try.

lachesis (756) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - AUG 31, 2004
nice amber color with orange golden shine and good airy head. Fine beer with nice aroma’s of fennel and soft spices. Beer with good texture and round mouthfeeling. In the taste there are some hints of malts, honey, herbs and star-anise. It ends with a warm and full mouthfeeling.

Syd (920) - Waconia, Minnesota, USA - AUG 18, 2004
Bottle pours a golden amber with the classic Biere de Garde sparse bubbles and nice head. The aroma is mildly perfumed and hop like. The flavor is more malt and hops than I anticipated. The palate is more like a Bock than the style. Overall, this is weird one. I actually like it though.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - AUG 12, 2004
(on bottle) I´ve been so lucky to have have tastet some really good ones these past days and this one is a nice finish. Actually the very best bier de garde (ambrée) I´ve had. For starters it´s a bit lashy and just sour. But give it the right temperature and it´s a treat. Apple/malty sent, turns into caramel and balsamic. Wonderfull amber color. A bit winourous acids, sweetness and honey. Gives a great warmth for a long time. Meditation bier.

Nate (3648) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 15, 2004
Fruity nose, light acidity, hops, malty and rich. A clean aroma, sweet and pleasant with a bit of yeast. Dark orange-amber clear with off-white, almost tan foamy lacing head. Medium-heavy body with solid carbonation, warming effect after. Starts malty and sweet, with musky fruit, yeast and alcohol. Finish is even sweeter, vaporous and deep, close to being velvety in texture. Strong nutty sweet finish. A little dryness comes in to finish, while leaving a sweet tannic residue, like after eating an exceptionally sweet pear or grape.

Choos (591) - Taylors Hill, AUSTRALIA - MAY 8, 2004
Musty woody and cork aroma with big whiffs of malt and fruit. Orangy/red with a smallish head. Flavour was all cork, malt, no hops but some sour notes. Maybe this needs to be drunk by itself?

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 5, 2004
Nice amber color with slight head and slight lacing. 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. THis is similar to Victory Grand cru just not as strong or bold. THis is my first Biere De Garde but I really liked it and will try more in the future.

leaparsons (7953) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2004
Dark red/brown in colour. Aromas are fruity, spicy and a touch musty. Good alcohol on the nose, too. Flavours are autumn fruits, toffee and sherry with warming alcohol to finish. Good stuff.
