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.

(33 cl bottle from Brødrene D; BBD: Jan 26th 2013) Pours a clear amber with lively carbonation and a medium, white head. Good retention and a little lace. Aroma is yeasty (basement) with bready notes and not much trace of hop. Oily texture, medium body, slightly sweet finish. Taste is mildly sweet with a little bitterness towards the end. Interesting but still confirming to me that biere de garde really isn’t my cup of tea. Girlfriend says: "It’s some kind of spicy."

Pours deep amber with heavy sweet notes of malt. The first palate shows the heavy sweet malt but then is disipates to a nice spice driven finish.

a really tasty brew! it doesn’t look that impressive though: cloudy amber with little white head. but the aroma is fruity with hint of prune. very fruity flavor, sweet but has enough complexity, quite enjoyable.

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.

rok1024 (1273) - Maribor, SLOVENIA - DEC 5, 2013
Clear amber brownish appearance with medium head. Malty with some scents of roast and coffee, sweet and slightly bitter, alcohol isn’t too noticeable, slightly odd aftertaste though. Good Biere de Garde style.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 19, 2003
Faint hazy amber ruby with small bright yellow beige short lasting head. Strong caramel malty, milder musty cellar yeast and port winey vinous with hint of spice. vinergary toffee and tropical fruit aroma. Medium smooth, ’fly of the tongue’ body. Short mild bitter hoppy start. medium strong hearty and delicious sweet heading towards sticky caramel malty, vinous and yeasty/spicey middle. The alcohol comes through in the middle and finish together with a faint bitter finish. Most fortified vinous of the Bière de Garde"s I"ve ever tasted. Nice.

It pours a hazy amber color with a off white almost tannish head. It has a rich, malty, aroma that features bread, dark fruits, toffee, and alcohol. It has a malty rich taste of bread, toffee, a bit of roast, spices, and alcohol. It has a heavy feel to it with a slightly sweet, the bitter aftertaste with alcohol warming.
