3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
In short: A yeasty and toasted biscuity grainy malts affair. Good beer
How: Bottle 330ml. Consumed when probably one year of age.
The look: Almost clear golden amber body topped by a small beige head
In long: Nose is toasted cookies and earthy yeast. Taste is very grainy toasted malts, graham cookies, earthy notes, some brown sugar, toasted cracked wheat bread, lots of yeast. Fluffy full body. This beer was all about toasted grainy malt, it is a bit sweet, but something about the interplay of the malts and the omnipresent yeast made it drinkable. I must say I didn’t expect much from this beer so it was a pleasant surprise. Just another of the many many many beers I drank just because I need to try them all. On the positive side, if tomorrow I’m diagnosed with a terminal brain tumor I certainly will not regret not drinking more beer while I was healthy.

Bottle from Beers of the World. Pours amber, with TONS of floaties. Huge off white head that lasts and lasts. The nose has caramel, toffee, wheat. Impressive looking beer. Taste is sweet - sugar, caramel, and heavy malts. Hops are noticeably lacking. My first beer from La Choulette, and I am impressed. World class Biere de Garde.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Bottled)I wish I could find a 750ml of this ale . . When residing in France in 2008/09 i became familiar with nice frog-biere but not sampled this ; nose is pretty rich and caramel accented, earthy hops , dirt and a butteryness. Sip this and you think of French arrogance and French culinary skill.. Big powerful syrupy malts, caramel ,cereal, earthy hops, and lots of dancing booze. but any rawness is eaten by real skill shown here - to bring united vibes. Quality biere.
