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.

A great beer to have regulary. Nice maltiness and a bit of spice. Finished smooth with a tiny caramel sweetness. A good drink.

La Choulette Ambree reminded me of a bock beer, instead of a biere de garde. It has a sweet aroma and taste (again, like a demi-bock) and is fairly spicy and hoppy. If you’re looking for a traditional biere de garde, I’d stick with La Bavaisienne instead.

Indra (2711) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - FEB 3, 2006
750ml bottle. Light, sweet, sugary aroma, accented by a moderate amount of herbal hops with a noticeable tea leaf character, along with lighter hints of fresh wood and orange. Rosy red-orange color with a lasting, foamy, off-white head. Mildly spicy and bitter to start, seeing an influx of candyish malt sugary sweetness that figures highly into the overall effect, and for the finish a blend of mild berryish fruit and gentle hints of peppery alcohol, caramel, spices and vanilla frosting. Lively yet lightly syrupy on the palate with a medium body. At first, interesting, but the effect seems to wear off somewhat by the end of the bottle.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - MAY 9, 2006
Amberish brown, with a nice long lasting head. Aroma is somewhat alcoholic and phenolic, a bit of burnt wood, spicy hops and a bit of caramel malt round out the flavor profile with just a hintof bittersweet fruitiness in the finish.

swoopjones (7021) - Buffalo, New York, USA - DEC 4, 2007
750ml @ Stone Brewing. Very sweet nose. Some spiciness, dark dried fruit. Nice medium amber color. Sweetness is evident with some spiciness. Pretty tasting but a tad too sweet

UPDATED: DEC 27, 2007 a different sort of beer. real fruity in its overall presence. very thin and smooth with its mouth feel. though it has a strong head the carbonation is rather flat. the taste is toffee with fruit. I like it

RichardGretton (4614) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2002
Beautiful ruby colour with a slight strawberry aroma. The flavour also has hints of strawberry with an aniseed finish. The beer comes over as a bit too wine oriented which affects its drinkability to its detriment.

Amber. Medium head, dissipates quite fast. Smells like an old cellar. Warming, spicy flavour. Left a rum-like flavour in my mouth.
