COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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%

Thanks to Alengrin. 750 ml. bottle sampled @ “Tim needs to get rid of his ticks” Tasting. Enjoyed together with tderoeck, Benzai & Alengrin. Clear red amber, little head. Metallic nose, herbs, iron, caramel syrup. Taste is caramel, thin fizzy, lightly metallic, light herbs, lightly fruity. Body is a bit fizzy & thin. Okay for what it is but it certainly didn’t blow me away as promised by the commercial description.

Copper looking beer not much head on top. Aroma is quite boozy. There is some sweet malts and grass within the booze. Taste is also a bit boozy, some sweet malts and grass too. Medium body and high carbonation. Not my pint of beer.

Big metallic taint in this beer, so much so that might be a drain pour if it doesn’t blow off. I hope the water from Mt Blanc is cleaner than this....
