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!

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

UPDATED: DEC 9, 2011 Quite clear orange body with a rocky off-white head. Intruiging well balanced aroma of pepper, lemon, orange. Very well balnced warm flavour: moderately bitter, moderatelly sweet. Great!

Unique! It’s unclear blonde/amber with a nose of pepper and coriander, even if it turns out that there’s no coriander in the ingredients. The pepper (pepper as in white/black peppers, not chilis) makes it stand out from the crowd, giving it a pronounced taste yet not too spicy either so it remains very enjoyable. I’d love to try this again accompanied with the right meal. It’s got a strong taste though so whichever beer you choose next better be full-bodied...

L’Amarante is an exceptional beer with a unique aroma and taste because of the use of the pepper. Look: moderate off white head. Hazy amber beer with very little carbonation. Aroma: hops, spicy, very unique, sweet Taste: spicy, sour touch, bitter finish, very complex

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 26, 2011
(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

jgb9348 (4488) - 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.

dnstone (2111) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUL 31, 2010
Light gold color with nice white head. Spicey, Indian food aroma. Tastes like a light triple with a pepper finish nicely unobtrusive for a pepper beer.

mikske79 (13) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - APR 5, 2013
Als je het flesje opendoet is er een zeer sterke peppergeur. Maar als je het eenmaal drinkt valt dit goed mee. Je proeft het licht, maar het stoort niet. Leuk om eens te drinken

JorisPPattyn (7716) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - FEB 17, 2008
Small, dense, off-white head, leaving shards of lace over clear, deep-ochre beer. Superb nose of (black) pepper, but also bog myrtle, extremely powerfully perfumed, nearly soapy. Peppery (indeed!), like drinking the atmosphere of an alternative beautishop (imagine drinking the condensed air from a Bodyshop). Again bog myrtle, but more powerful - as in soap. Ginger retronasal. Very slick, sticky, but not heavy bodied. Very original beer. But i’d preferred more dry-peppery, instead of overpowering soapy.

Jerre (2365) - Waregem, BELGIUM - MAR 1, 2008
Bottle, 33 cl. @ ZBF ’08 Almost clear amber color, and a dense, off-white head, . Aroma pepper, fruits, bit sweet. Medium body. Taste sweet, sticky, peppery, original, bit dry end. Not bad.
