une bière trop amère pour moi. Ca doit être le houblon qui doit être en trop grande quantité, en tout cas, il ne me reste pas un gros souvenir affectif.

ksiwzos (82) - GREECE - MAR 13, 2015
0.33L bottle from French e-shop Dark amber with golden tinge, crystal clear with beige, small to medium head, dissipates quickly. Aroma is very malty, caramel, burnt caramel, dark roasted notes, bread crust, earthy and light spicy hoppy tones, sherry like sweet woody notes. Sweet caramel taste, burnt sugar, apple fruitiness, sweet vanilla/woody tones, alcohol is slightly warming but don’t show at all.

75 cl bottle. Pour is clear amber with thick lasting head, proper lacing. Aromas mainly dough, barnyard and grass. Taste is low on bitter, a bit sweet and a bit salty. Aftertaste is funky yeasts. Maybe a bit much alcohol. Tasty and above average experience.

mircoas (175) - ITALY - FEB 12, 2015
33cl @ bottle. Dalla Francia un’ambrata fruttata e dolce. Birra discreta anche se manca un po’ di coraggio.

Fashawn (341) - Montesarchio, ITALY - SEP 18, 2014
Un’eccezione per me, visto il.cattivo ricordo delle birre francesi o bretoni in generale. Invece la choullette già dal colore scuro e la schiumetta compatta ha dimostrato di avere altra anima. Bella la sensazione liquorosa che lascia in bocca, così come il sapore dolce che finisce abboccato. Buona birra.

Alengrin (2928) - BELGIUM - AUG 22, 2014
Classic bière de garde from Valenciennes, with pale beige, mousse-like, perfectly regular, sticky head and deep, warm amber colour with pinkish hue, lively sparkling with tiny yeast particles floating everywhere. Aroma of walnuts, caramel, apple peel, nutmeg, earth, dried leaves, aniseed, cherry liqueur, sherry. Sweet fruity taste, hint of apple cider, strong carbonation, rounded and smooth mouthfeel, caramelly and nutty malts, spicy yeast, leafy and earthy hop bitterishness in the end where some of the initial sweetness also remains, some warming alcohol too. Excellent example of its style and one of the best French beers I’ve had so far.
