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.

UPDATED: JUL 13, 2007 Poured to a flat reddish-orange with very little head and virutally no lacing or effervescence. Appearance was more of a cherry-apple cider than a beer, and the aroma was a pleasant mix of spices and fruit (mostly apples and grapes). This beer was interesting in that the mouthfeel, flavor and finish were all what I would imagine the result to be if you mixed a Lambic and a Flemish Sour together. At various sips and times, I detected fruity, sweet, sour, spicy and a hint of the 8% alcohol. Different, but not bad at all.

Big short lived head & chestnut colour. Some apple-like aroma. Very malty flavour with just enough alcohol warmth. Caramelly sweetness develops as it warms, which I actually liked. Quite complex and worthy of rating #300.

Amber-red with a nice head. Malty aroma, full of nuts and caramel. Sweet flavours of fruits, spice, caramel and hazelnuts. Delicious.

gilvanblight (821) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 5, 2006
Deep red pour with a clingy head. Thick belgian like taste. Somewhat swet with some fruit and tartness like grapefruit. Very clean finish, a bit of a strong alcohol taste.

hohops (821) - Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2014
Pours a dark amber, almost brown colour, with a fluffy head. A rich aroma of spice, dark fruit, coffee. Satisfying taste, lots of malts with a bit of bitterness, but nicely balanced. Pretty good overall.

budedou (817) - Saint Etienne, FRANCE - JUN 26, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2015 Clear amber body, white head. Aroma of caramel and some molasses. Some unpleasant floury feeling. Alcohol is veery present. Overall might be nice beer, but I just dislike the strong amber ones.

Cristobal37 (814) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 25, 2016
Fresh malts caramel salty fruity aroma. Amber brown minimal head. Medium body, sweet amber, starts carbonated then gets kinda molassesy like a heller bock, but without any booziness. Finish is light but nice. I imagine this would be a nice table beer with dinner.
