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%

Body is medium, malty - lightly wheaty and sweetish flavor, some caramel and light berry fruitiness, faint alcohol. Finish is average, malty - faint wheat and lightly sweetish, light caramel and spiciness, light alcohol. Sweetish French ale with caramel - lacks character.

750ml bottle from Henri’s, shared with jeevan. Clear ruby pour, frothy white head. Aromas of not-a-great-deal, light yeasty esters and caramel. Taste is too sweet for me. Finishes clean to metallic. OK.

minutemat (1534) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2014
330ml bottle from Auchan. Pours a reddish brown.. a little sweeter than I anticipated with more of a caramelly Biere de Garde taste.. some malts coming through and a touch of dried fruits. Ok but not quite hitting the same notes as other BdGs I’ve had recently.

Belle mousse épaisse et persistance correcte. Nez malté et légèrement fruité. Entrée de bouche déconcertante, goût végétal et de fruits sec. Fin de bouche courte et désaltérante. Bière moyenne mais bonne pour l’apéro.
