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. Pours dark amber with off white head. Nose/taste of fennel, seed, pepper, spice, caramel, sweet malt and sage. Taste is thinner and light on the palate. Nose is very pungent with overabundance of spice.

Alengrin (1742) - BELGIUM - AUG 27, 2014
Beer spiced with some exotic pepper variety. Thin but stable, off-white head, amber colour with orange glow, hazy. Aroma not unlike pepper cream sauce of the kind often served with steak, caramel, nuts, nutmeg, chilli, meat, peach. Soft fruity onset, caramelly and nutty malt base, quickly accompanied by a spicy effect of chilli pepper and green pepper corns, some peppery hoppiness in the finish too. Great if you like spicy food but it’s easy to see why people who don’t, will find this abominable.

motelpogo (6700) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 27, 2014
bottled. murky amber with a short-lived head; aroma of truck stop pepper, compost, cleaning products; little malt backbone, leaving the truck stop pepper flavours horribly exposed

# 3484 ersma: bier + pfeffer. warum nicht. zeugenbräu namenlos ist (neben tabasco) mit szechuanpfeffer. das kann schon gut sein... karamellfarben, leicht trübe. oben mittelviel, recht stabiler schaum. der geruch ist  süßlich, pfeffrig und leicht muffig (weißer pfeffer? der hat diese muffige note. auf dem etikett erkenne ich aber nur schwarzen pfeffer und kubebenpfeffer). der antrunk ist  süßlich, karamellig. ganz im hintergrund ist pfeffer erahnbar. die mitte bringt herbe noten mit, dazu noch immer karamell. dier abgang ist dezent pfeffrig, herb und süßlich. das gemeine ist ja, dass sich die schärfe bei so einem bier erst nach und nach aufbaut, weil die aromen hängen bleiben. nach einigen schlucken ist die schärfe schon etwas deutlicher, leider auch das muffige. es kommt aber auch eine frische, pfefferminzige note hinzu, dei der kubenbenpfeffer mitbringt. die flasche ist schlicht und ansehnlich. fazit: idee gut, umsetzung nicht sso richtig übezeugend, vor allem wegen der unerklärlichen muffigkeit. dennoch gut trinkbar. 9,9,9,11,12,9 - 9,45

jgb9348 (4738) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAR 12, 2014
Slightly hazy amber and copper coloured body with a thin, fast-dying white head. Aroma of bright black pepper, pink pepper, light hops, bunches of sweetness, a touch of yeast and more pepper - very nice smelling, intoxicating, almost! Medium-bodied; Assertive pepper flavour up front that isn’t spicy at all with a more mellow flavour in the middle with a little malt, fruit sweetness, some other herbs and a touch of earthy bitterness at the end. Aftertaste is mildly complex with pepper dominating and showing some sweetness and a lot of dry characteristics. Overall, a very nice complex beer that you wouldn’t expect too much, but good all around! I’m glad I brought this back home with me and would tell anyone else to do the same, assuming you can find it! I sampled this 33 cL bottle purchased from Delices & Caprises in Bruxelles, Belgium on 19-August-2013 for €2,00 sampled at home on the other side of the Atlantic in Washington on 12-March-2014.

Grzesiek79 (3213) - Radom, POLAND - DEC 1, 2013
Bardzo mi przypadlo do gustu to piwo. Jest mocno pieprzowe, wyczuwam zwlaszcza bialy pieprz. W smaku ziemiste, jakby bardzo stare piwo, wytrawne i lekko gozkie, slodyczy zadnej, finisz piepszno aromatyczny. Na uwage zasluguje piana zwijajaca sie taka slimakowa i mocno trwala, spora metnosc w zasadzie przez roznego rodzaju pieprz bo osadu drozdzowego nie zauwazylem. Polecam to intrygujace piwo

jookos (2161) - FINLAND - NOV 23, 2013
Bottle. Coppery cloudy. Sweet, overripe vanilla stone fruits on nose, a bit of bready malts, lime green citurs. Spicy herbal medium body, slight oily. Sweet malts with rosemary, peppers, a bit of heat even. Strange. feels too perfumy, soapy. Like something they’d sell at The Body Shop(tm).

MrHangover (2456) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - SEP 14, 2013
Bottle at Dean’s stickiest floor tasting. Pours a hazy blonde beer with a very thin, white head on top. Aroma is cinnamon, peppers and yeast. Flavor is sweet peppery and loads of cinnamon again. The spicyness of the pepper is not really detected, more a sweeter flavor. Quite unbalanced and sweet overall.

jmgreenuk (4360) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 13, 2013
Bottle at Deano’s monthly tasting, September 2013. Poured a cloudy medium amber with a bubbly white head. The aroma is toffee caramel and fruit. The flavour is dry malt and a little fruit. A very odd beer.
