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.

750 ml bottle. Medium head dies very quickly; orange slightly cloudy body. Amazing farmy-sweet-flowery nose, I didn’t want to drink it because I wanted to keep smelling it! Some grapiness in the nose leads into an almost-as-intense flavor profile with grapes, buttermilk and cheese vying for your rapt attention. Wonderful thick, malty mouthfeel gradually gives way to a dry champagny finish. Just amazing, I wish I could get my hand on more bieres de Garde, could be my new favorite style!

Clear dark amber colour. Malty aroma. Caramel, malty, yeasty flavour. Gets sweeter as it warms, making the flavours blend together all the better.

Ungstrup (29081) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 27, 2002
A beutiful amber beer with only a small head. It has a nice aroma of fruit and malt. The flavor is slightly flat as a cask beer with a good malt sweetness and a slight bitterness. A nice beer.

Sweet sour fruit aroma, dark honey colour, egg custard head. Big cognac and fruit flavour. Tart, good mouthfeel. A very nice Biere de Garde.

Amber. Medium head, dissipates quite fast. Smells like an old cellar. Warming, spicy flavour. Left a rum-like flavour in my mouth.

La Choulette Ambree reminded me of a bock beer, instead of a biere de garde. It has a sweet aroma and taste (again, like a demi-bock) and is fairly spicy and hoppy. If you’re looking for a traditional biere de garde, I’d stick with La Bavaisienne instead.

Ernest (6143) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 3, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2004 Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy dark amber, bottle conditioned. Aroma is moderately malty (caramel, cookie), moderately yeasty (mold, cobwebs), with notes of peach, grass, sour apple, hint of alcohol. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Sourish, and not entirely wholesome.
