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.

Extremely earthy hop flavor dominates this one. Nice maltiness, rather typical of the biere de garde style, I believe, as I have yet to sample one that wasn’t luciously malty. Some slight metallic flavor comes out toward the end, but reasonably enjoyable.

A great beer to have regulary. Nice maltiness and a bit of spice. Finished smooth with a tiny caramel sweetness. A good drink.

A very nice beer, malty caramel flavours, bit of spice aswell. a bit salty and sticky, but relativly dry and savoury, nice brew.

yes yes like it like it. bieres de garde are so varied - none of them taste remotely like each other. slightly sweet, in a stewed apple (skin on) kind of way, with a cashewy raisiny chewiness, and a touch of something savoury, like one of those tough, withered old salamis you get in italian delis. buggered if i know how they get those flavours in there.

jayme9874 (756) - Hamburg, New York, USA - JAN 22, 2002
Clear, copper. Nice white head and lace. Nose is filled with yeast and flowery notes. Firm maltiness and body,yeast shows itself early and gives way to the malt and something subtle and sweet...very intricate, complex and classy. Unique and may not be for everyone.

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 19, 2002
Very sweet malty nose, fruit. Dark cloudy orange/pink color (whatever color that is?) Soft mouthfeel, syruppy texture. Some tartness, good carbo. Good and complex, but a little too sweet for my tastes.

Bov (9245) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAY 7, 2001
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2009 <i<bought in Strasbourg - hazy dark ruby-amber colour under a solid persistent beige foam; quite complex aroma of apple, marzipan and caramel; solid malt body and with a robust sweetness, quite sticky; very long malty and caramelish finish with notes of honey

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 6, 2001
Firm, malty, with a touch of vanilla and a good, understated yeasty note. Well-crafted. Damn this brewery kicks ass.
