3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
French amber beer from a 75 cl bottle, apparently brewed in the French Alps and in that sense far removed from the traditional bière de garde region. Sticky, snow white, moussy and very stable head, colour lightly hazy amber. Nutty malts, dried fruits, biscuit, walnuts, apricot, hints of caramel; restrained sweetness, bit metallic, malty with slight yeastiness and medium herbal hoppiness in the finish. Quite okay. Big thanks to Marie for bringing me this bottle all the way from the Mont Blanc region!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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....
