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%

harrisoni (13256) - 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.

yngwie (13159) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 10, 2012
Bottle, 75cl. It’s an unclear, orangey in color and with a small, dense, off-white head. The aroma has a nice touch of hibiscus, as well as generic fruityness and a spiced hint. Some sugary hints. The flavor isn’t as evident on the hibiscus, but with the same fruityness and sugar. Some spices too, and a touch of dried fruits. Full-bodied and pleasantly carbonated. Flowery, sweetish finish that’s actually quite dry. 121110

TBone (12447) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 1, 2012
Bottled 330ml "Mont-Blanc La Rousse" (BZ, BB 07/2013, alc, 6.5%)
Deep ruby color, small steady white head. Berryish aroma, slightly caramelly, hints of "dish water". Medium-bodied, active carbonation but weak palate. Flavor has also caramel, berries, some alcohol, very typical "Biere de Garde" taste. A bit boring beer.
