Made in the tradition of artisan brewers, Sans Culottes is a blonde beer sur lie. Probably the best bière de garde for the uninitiated to start with. Packed in a 75 cls bottle with a wired-down cork, Sans Culottes sports a brilliantly eye-catching label showing a revolutionary soldier proudly wearing his pantalons, having wisely forsaken his culottes for the coming struggle.

Bottled. Orangeish golden colour with a small foamy/creamy white head. Aroma is fruity, some herbal, wooden and bready notes along with mild yeastiness. Flavour is fruity, floral, some wooden, bready and mild nutty and toffeeish notes. Get some mild berryish notes as it gets warmer.

Bottle. Dry, tasty, fruity beer. To me this had a piney flavour, was quite zesty and good blend.

Complex, with strong candy and fruit notes from the malt and yeast. Despite being French, it’s really similar to a Belgian ale in most respects. I found it to be really, even surprisingly, refreshing, especially considering that it’s both high alcohol and malt forward.

CaptainTilven (97) - Nancy, FRANCE - SEP 5, 2015
Golden yellow liquid topped with a fluffy foam - that fades down quite quickly. Smells of herb, malt, ananas; very attractive. Tastes of honey, yellow fruit, pear; gourmande and subtle; a bit syrupy. Unobtrusive bitterness that is nevertheless sufficent to structure the body. Lacks slightly complexity.

Pours clear yellow to golden with light orange hue. Head is small, white that dissipates to floating islands on top of the beer. Very strange is that there are small yeast(?) pieces all around that don’t alter the texture of the beer or anything else. Aroma is sweet, hay, candy sugar, bready notes, some unidentifiable spices. Flavor is sweet, fruity(apple?) with light citrus notes, malty that finished beautifully hoppy. The ballance is amazing. Dry and medium carbonation. One of the best examples I have ever tasted.
