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%

beautiful amber color with ruby tendancy. very nice head. strong malty taste with floral notes. ends with a slightly acid finish which makes it very easy to drink more than one... but 7.2% alc... simply one of the best amber beer I tasted so far, excellent and different!

A deep cloudy red beer with a huge, creamy, beige head. Aroma is very complex, due to the rich maltiness and the little sour hint on the finish. Nice caramel notes.

Panzerfaust (785) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - MAY 6, 2012
330 ml bottle from Jumbo, Santiago de Chile. Drank at room temperature . Pours a delicate clear copper color with a medium beige head that diminishes fast and leaves no lacing. Aroma is strong malty and fruity with notes of red apples, sugar cane, strawberry, red currants and flowers. Quite interesting. Taste is rather sweet and intensely fruity. It shows hints of tropical fruit salad, Monks Cress and strawberries. Surprisingly fresh despite being so sweet. Smooth mouthfeel, oily texture. The finish is long and leaves an aftertaste that is almost as strong as the actual taste. Excellent French ale I would gladly try again.
