COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Curtius is a blond beer brewed with a number of premium quality products with a light taste and refreshing flavors. Mixed with different malts of barley and wheat, its base grants it a pleasant lightness while the addition of aromatic hop blossoms gives it a subtly bitter, flowery and fruity flavor. Its unique and progressive taste is the results of multiple fermentation steps, conducted during several months. Curtius deserved a bottle of quality and prestige at the scale of its content. This is why we chose a 37.5 cl corked bottle, just like Champagne bottles. Naturally Curtius will also be available in barrels. To enjoy all the flavors of Curtius store the bottle upright at room and stable temperature, hidden from daylight. When tasting, once the bottle is properly chilled, untie the cork wire, take out the cork and serve Curtius Beer in its original glass. Avoid pouring the bottom of the bottle which contains the yeast dregs which gave its complexity to Curtius during its bottled re-fermentation. Ideal temperature for beer-tasting : 6-8°C

Robe blonde, reflets verts. Nez marqué par le houblon et le citron sur un fond de farine. Bouche assez ronde mais qui manque de fruit et d’ampleur.

MrBlueSky93 (437) - Sutton Coldfield, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2015
Bottle from Beer52. Really didn’t enjoy this, yet it could be great, may have been a bad bottle. (Probably was) Pours a hazy golden colour with a large white head. Aroma is very yeasty, some skunkyness on mine and extremely sweet. The Skunkiness aroma came through in the flavour too for me...would like to try this again some time.

sayravai (4677) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 23, 2015
(Bottled, 0.375l) Opaque yellow-golden with a medium, quickly descending head. Floral, peachy and yeasty aroma. Flavor is flowery-perfumy with sourish, lemony notes and mild spiciness. Moderate bitterness in the aftertaste. Medium to full body, reasonably refreshing, slightly foamy CO2. A quite nice blonde with a saisony and lemony twist. Hops were not pronounced as the yeast had not settled in the bottle (I don’t mind, though). 4-3-4-6

McSherman (286) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAR 17, 2015
Die Flasche und die Aufmachung mit schwarzem Etikett und Korkverschluss kommt edel daher. Im Glas zeigt sich das Bier dunkelgelb und trüb mit ausflockender Hefe und schönem beständigem weißen Schaum. In der Nase zeigt sich Weizen, Zitrus und etwas Hefe. Im Antrunk dominiert eine Spritzigkeit, bevor sich Süße und Alkohol durchsetzen. Im Abgang kommt noch eine Säure und eine leichte Bitternote hinzu. Stimmiges Bier.
