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.

jercraigs (7456) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 8, 2004
Slighty hazy red amber body, with a good velvety off white head. Slight barnyardy floral aroma? Bit tart and teasty at times with some nice malt in it and some acidity. Intriguing. Deceptively high alcohol content.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 24, 2007
Pours a slightly hazy dark copper amber with a small, frothy, thin-lacing light tan head. Has a dry, earthy spicy, semi-tart aroma with some light fruity notes. Body starts slightly sweet and caramely malty along with some spicy earthy notes and fruity tart balance. Not sure if the tartness is intended, but it’s not too overpowering and does hide the alcohol fairly well. A decent biere de garde.

Ughsmash (7092) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 29, 2007
750mL bottle, BB 4/25/07. Poured clear, medium sparkly orange/amber with a well-formed cap of white head. The aroma picked up spicy darker fruits, dusty notes of mild oxidation, and an almost vinegary tartness. The flavor had a soft lemon and vinegary tartness throughout with sweet dark fruits and toffee across the middle.. dry peppery and floral notes hit on the finish.. just a bit too tart, perhaps because this was a little old.. still tasty, though. Medium-bodied with tartness beating out the sweet stuff.. lemony finish. I’d drink this again.

330 ml bottle. BB 26/12/14. From saveur-biere.com.
My advent calender door number 15 gave me this one. It’s dark mahogany coloured with a big light tan head. Sweet dark fruits, spices and dry maltiness. Very nice. The flavour is also quite yummy with dark fruits, some sweetness, spices, dry woody malt and mild alcohol.

DuffMan (6462) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 1, 2008
Beautiful bright hazy amber orange, thin skim of a head that vanishes almost before the first sip. Aroma of distinct soft caramel and candied orange. Rich caramel flavour, orange brandy. The finish is dry, medium bitterness, and surprisingly a little tart.

Ok aroma and flavor. Unfortunately it disapears quickly.

Radek Kliber (6368) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - NOV 20, 2006
Bottle (Volo) Fine haze, amber light brown. Good solid fine tanned top, nice lacing. Pleasant nose, malty, gentle aromatic hops with hints of spice and yeast. Slightly earthy, woody in character with semi-sweet malt touch. Smooth and very easy to drink. Be aware this one is 8 %. Classic.
