UPDATED: SEP 14, 2011 More often than not though, this brew is elevated to the lager firmament...Perfect equilibrium of ultra-fresh cereals and peppery, herbal hoppiness...Divine union of fruity caramel subtleties and soft effervescence...The wedding of artisanry and conviviality....

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2007 On tap: Apperance is a clear copper with a light off-white head. Aroma is sweet malt, honey and caramelic. Taste is caramel with hints at earth. Finish is dry, lightly hoppy and lightly acidic.

At last a very needed update on this. If you manage to catch it fresh and despite its consistency, one of the better batches, you’re in for a treat. An immensely drinkable, very fresh, bready, almost caramelly, but all in its gentle nutty, toasty munichs. Remarkable flowery, fresh, clean hoppiness. Superbly delicate hallertau. From 3.0 to 4.2!

Très bonne bière, légère, sucré de caramel et de fruit. Elle me fait penser à Bockbier, mais moin forte. Meilleur que celle de Belle Gueule.

An excellent lager with a big malt presence and really nice flowery hop presence in the nose and flavour.

Deep amber coloured beer. Aroma is lovely. Soft chewy sweet munich malt aroma. Toasty character with a light herbal/spicy hoppiness. Another very fresh tasting hoppy brew. Crisp, bready malts and a lingering herbal/spicy hoppiness. Another awesome lager from these guys. Wow.

On tap at Amère à Boire. Pours deep aqmber with a small head. A little veil of foam stays until the end. Some lacing on the glass but not much. Nose is biscuits malt and hops. Quite citrusy. Hints of bubblegum and caramel. Some sweetness. Really fresh aroma and utterly appealing. Taste is very malty and a bit citrusy. Small sweetness with some fruits.Finish is malty and a bit hoppy. This is very very good. What a surprise.

Tap at the brewpub. Dark pour, even for a Vienna, with a generous off white head. Aroma of lime, vanilla, banana and grain, completely unexpected aroma - Wow. Taste is quite sweet, chocolatey with some banana and grain. Very smooth carbonation, slightly creamy palate. The surprise.

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2007 Pours a clear amber color with a medium, creamy, white head. Solid aroma of caramel, malt and floral and herbal hops. Solid flavor of caramel, biscuity malt, floral and herbal hops with a mild bitter finish. The body is medium with creamy carbonation and gentle carbonartion. It’s a complex, very enjoyable and extremely well done lager.

18-01-12 Fut: Belle couleur ambrée-cuivrée asser foncée, effervescence normale, limpide et petit collet de mousse blanche. Arômes multiples: malt, chocolat, noix, caramel, touche d’houblon. Légèrement sucrée et maltée, avec une petit note d’houblon. Bière légère, mais très riche en saveurs de toute sortes. Corps léger-moyen, avec une texture légèrement ronde, mais très facile à boire. Faible carbonisaton et finale asser maltée. Peut vraiment faire aimer les bières plus faible en alcool.
