This beer is the last creation of the Mont Blanc brewery. It is brewed with our pure water from our exclusive water catchment on the slopes of Mont Blanc, and from three differents malts : wheat, barley and oat. We wanted a beer that associates a full body malty taste but still a refreshing kick to it. We used a combination of top fermentation and delicate spices like Hibiscus to give it its ruby color and full taste with a hint of fruity notes. The result is a very complex yet very balanced amber beer that will blow you away! Formerly 7.2%

(bottle, 33cl) Hazy, deep amber colour with a beige and big foamy head. Yeasty, toast-malty aroma with notes of caramel, bread crusts and a touch of dried fruits and nuts. Sweet flavour, medium bodied with a calm carbonation. Bready and mildly toasted malty taste with notes of caramel and dried fruits; sweet malty finish, getting slightly thinner towards the very end; dried fruits and caramel in the aftertaste. 07.X.14

Bottle from Brune Rousse Houblon, Nice. Amber-brown with no head. Fairly complex with a mainly malt and grain character but there’s fruit in the nose and taste too. It’s a pretty good ale though.

Bottled 10/08/14. A reddy brown coloured beer with a little white head. Quite sweet and fruity. Nutty notes. Sweet and boozy. a good depth of flavour. Nice.

Une rousse intéressante, surtout qu’elle me semble évoquer plutôt des goûts de bière ambrée... Mmpf. Bonne malgré tout.

Bouteille 75cl en provenance de la brasserie. Jolie robe rousse, belle mousse, bonne carbonation. Excellente buvabilité, rafraichissante, bonne bière de soif mais n’est cependant pas à la hauteur de mes attentes en tant que bière de dégustation.

My first Biere de Guarde. I’d been keeping that bottle for a couple of years already. Cloudy cherrywood red, with a very bubbly brief head. Sweet malty aroma, with dried fruits and honey. Same on the flavour, where once could pick apricots and orange marmalade. Not really any bitter. Easy to drink, and it had a certain oiliness on the tongue. Not bad!

Bottle. Aroma caramel, dried fruits, light chocolate. Clear amber colour. Taste is caramel, dark fruits, light chocolate. Belgian-like character. Very good.

Nettes, aber unaufgeregtes Piwo mit einem leichten Touch and Malz und Nüssen. Hier und da angenehm in der Süffigkeit mit Karamell und etwas an Früchten. Nicht schlecht.

Pours out of the bottle in a hazy reddish colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of mild fruits and bread. Taste of bread, mild hops, flowers, biscuits, malt, barley and porridge. Easy drinkable yet nothing very nice / special.

Palme (3606) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 2, 2014
On tap @ Ma Poule, Torvehall. This is a cloudy really deep amber almost brownish looking one and it has near no head. Smells nice, lots of caramelly sweetness, quite malty with nuances of red fruits. Not bad at all. I really needed a beer now, so this tasted quite nice. A bit like thin fruit saft. It doesn’t really have much bitterness, but lots of fruitiness with a faint red acidity in the back. Feels light oily in the mouth and it’s about average on the carbonation. Malty lingering tail. Just what I needed! 10.01.2014
