Bottle from La Cave A Bulles. Cloudy amber beer. Silky palate with that good low level carbonated bite that so many French beers seem to have. Rich sweet toffee caramel with porty tones. Soft toffeeish finish.

harrisoni (15649) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2006 There are 2 definite versions of this beer. A filtered and non filtered version. One is bright and very drinkable, although has no sediment, the other with a different label, but same ABV. The first is an easy drinking ambree with good malt and hop balance and very drinkable. In fact it went down without noticing. The second is a different beast. An orange gold dirty colour with a thin off white head with sediment in suspension. Yeasty orange zesty aroma. Really nice in mouth, creamy and zesty at the same time. Boy what a beer.This is incredible. A pleasing drinkable ambree in the filtered version and an in your face biere de garde with fresh spice herb nose, citrus. Gd French Admin anyone?

Bottle, 750ml cork & caged from Carrefour, Coquelles, France. Amber with white head, high carbonation. This is pretty tart, apple sours with a slight cardboard note, some herbs, fruity and quite sweet in the close. Not a beer that I find enjoyable.
