COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
L’Amarante est le nom d’une épicerie fine à Virton (B) tenu par une sommelière herboriste et un oenologue patenté. Avec leur collaboration, nous avons marié une de nos bières avec 2 poivres exotiques. Un an de travail pour une bière très aromatique, douce et puissante à la fois, un équilibre parfait des arômes houblonnés et poivrés. Ce partenariat en appelle d’autres… Pensez-y !

Amarante is the name of a delicatessen in Virton (B) held by a licensed herbalist sommelier and winemaker. With their cooperation, we married one of our beers with two exotic peppers. One year of work for a very aromatic, sweet and powerful at the same time, a perfect balance of flavors and peppery hoppy beer. The partnership calls other ... Think about it!

Bottle at Place Luxembourg market. Murky orange body with big puffy head. Nose is spicy, herbal and sweet. Some rhubarb definitely in the house. Taste is fruits, spices, rhubarb again. Grassy and sweet. Not really my thing. A bit too tangy and sweet.

Hazy dark yellow color, small white head. I felt like in a pharmacy or hospital with first nose. Body seems to be medium and small carbonation makes beer similar to medicine. Mixture of myrrh, rhubarb, chamomile, cardamom, aloe, and saffron plus other herbs so typical for spirits on base of amaro on palate. Also very herby finish. B@home

(Bottled) Opaque orange with a smallish, but firm and creamy head. Very nice aroma with pepper, garden herbs, pale honeyish malt, flowery-saisony notes. Flavor is smoothly pale-malty, spicy and orange-fruity, with a long, peppery-gingery-spicy finish. Medium to full body, soft CO2. A very nice, spicy and saisony ale, that reminds me of the excellent Fantôme brews. Very nice if you like pepper (like I do)! 4356

(75cl bottle 2008 vintage thanks to bu11zeye) cloudy copper with a film of fine white bubbles. Nose of rhubarb, spicy, honey, really a very spicy beer on the nose. Taste of rhubarb, curry, florals, and overall it’s just TOO spicy. Oily body with a very carbonated finish that doesn’t help the spiciness.

Abio (1519) - Waasland, BELGIUM - FEB 25, 2011
Light orange coloured, medium head that should hold a bit longer. Somehow weird and unpleasant smell, very spiced, light maly, citrus. The taste is also very spiced, not my thing at all. This is more to cure sick people then to enjoy as a beer it seems... No couching, so no need for this one.

Au fût @ Moeder Lambic. Bonne surprise de voir une bière belge utilisant de l’épicé dans sa bière, et qui parfois s’avère être un exercice de balance pour avoir une bière appréciable. Mille-Vertu réalise là une petite merveille. La couleur est dorée présentant un léger trouble, mousse blanche épaisse. Arôme est bien sûr épicé et je ne peux m’empêcher de noter de la camomille et su sauge ainsi que des traces de poivre blanc. En bouche, cette bière me divise un peu. J’apprécie fortement l’effort du style, mais je trouve que ce limiter à un verre suffi amplement. Au final, les épices tendent à dominer un peu le tout alors que le concept de départ est astucieux. Houblonnée et douce tout en mariant les épices laissant impression de camomille et de poivre, une douceur donne un aspect mielleux avec des traces de feuilles de thé. Très bonne découverte!

(750ml flip-top bottle, 2008 vintage) Pours a lightly hazy golden body with a spare white head. Aroma of citrus, tangerine, pepper, anise, perfume, and apricot. Flavor of apricot nectar, orange, pepper, and some bread.

Courtesy of bu11zeye. Clear golden color/ wispy white head. Cinnamon, vegetal, herbal aromas. light to medium bodied. Cinnamon, spearmint, earthy vegetal flavors with herbal greens-- not bad.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma is ginger, toffee and some fruit. Others at the tasting strongly disliked the aroma, and while I didn’t think it was great, I didn’t find it offensive as some others did. The flavor is very spicy and malt. I get a lot of toffee and biscuit malt, along with some ginger, nutmeg, cloves and some yeast notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A very interesting beer, although I am not sure how well all of the spices work together.
