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.

CaptainCougar (7133) - 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.

Avengedpoet (329) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - SEP 20, 2008
Bottle from April 07. Pours a deep ruby red/amber with very little head. Aroma is pronounced alcohol, mustiness, and some pilsener hiding in the background. Taste is very straightforward. Tastes like super-old pilsener malt, mustiess, and even some hops in there. Almost tastes like the homebrew Saison I made today smelled. Reminds me a lot of a basement. Very dry on the palate, with a little bit of acidity in the background. No spiciness, hardly any "fresh" character.
