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%

Pour is a clear amber with a small white head. Aroma is of a nice caramel malt with some brown sugar and maybe a bit of cherry. Flavor is a little sour with some dark fruit and more of the caramel malt. It was okay to start with a strong malt presence but went down hill a bit after that with some blandness.

harrisoni (14225) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2013
33cl bottle from Terre de Boisson, Calais. Reddish colour with thick beige head. Some fruity malt aroma. Yep, it’s warming fruity and wintery in the mouth. Some warmness from the alcohol. Some mild sting on finish. Mostly kind of strawberry jam and malt in the mouth. Quite drinkable. Decent beer.

Papsoe (25079) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2012
Bottle 75 cl. Pours a lightly hazy amber with a small, beige head. The aroma has a little - dry - caramel accents and some nuts. Medium body, brown sugars - again dry though - lightly spicy but hardly any bitterness. A pleasant and harmless easy drinker. 261212
