My review is tainted by a bad cork, which overwhelmed the aroma and flavor of this beer. I detected a nice spicy, peppery aspect, with a sweet, nice body, some earthiness, caramel malt and a bland finish. Amber color, rapidly diminished foamy, tan head. Probably a decent beer, but mine was in poor condition.

Thank you Mathieu87 & PriorL! 330 ml. bottle sampled @ “Mathieu’s house cooling party”. BBF 03.03.2015. GUSHER. Dark amber with no head. Nose is spoiled bread & massive oxidation, stale bread & big wet cardboard, raisin,… Taste is hugely oxidized, old cardboard, wet cardboard, raisin, sugar, old butterscotch candy, touch watery, toffee,… Body is guar, stale bread & cardboard. Wet cardboard & other oxidation notes are excessive, totally dominating. Not liking it, this one didn’t keep unfortunately despite the style.

75 cl bottle@home in footed glass@approx 9 degrees C. Pours almost clear dark amber with medium tan head with ok retention and little lacing. Malty aroma with a hint of yeast, caramel and spices. Mouthfilling taste on the sweet, malty and bready side. Medium body with average carbonation. Much more pleasant than any other ambree I have had for years. Actually enjoyed this one!

(Kind of like a dubbel with less "Belgian" yeast character) Hazy copper. Smells like toffee, cereal, and a little metal. Just off-dry, low bitterness, a little sour at the end. Tastes like toffee, cereal, a tiny bit of licorice and grass. Medium body with lower carbonation and not much head. No ash character, no alcohol. Super smooth but very flavorful. Malt-forward with medium yeast character but not boring, too sweet, or unbalanced. Delicious.

Bottle. Clear amber colour. Quite toasty malty character, also decent sweetness. Then earthy grassy hops, some alcohol, lightly spicy. Quite good.

Ambra carico, schiuma quasi inesistente, gran quantità di lievito sospeso. Aroma molto dimesso, al palato dolce del caramello, si sente bene l’alcol. Non mi ha emozionato troppo.
