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%

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.

McTapps (6324) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - JUN 9, 2014
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 (3637) - 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

Bottle, tasting at Cool Wine. Amber orange with a small light head. Smells of caramel with a little fruity and spicy touch. The flavour is light malt, wheat, a kind of berry sweetness that is actually quite pleasant. Not bad, dainty.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein leicht trübes bernsteinfarbnes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch fruchtig malzig, würzig. Geschmack fruchtig süß, würzig malzig.

mile (3714) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 26, 2014
Bottle. Amber, small to average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate, malty - lightly wheaty and sweetish aroma, some caramel and light berry fruitiness, faint spiciness. 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.
