harrisoni (17278) - 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?

From BA (Oct 2007): This was the third bottle in my collection of beers from this brewery and also the third bottle in a French beer tasting evening I had earlier in the week. A cork and caged 75cl brown bottle best before July 2008, drank in Oct 2007. Poured into my Hogaarden Grand Cru glass (twice). The first pour gave a lovely clear, golden coloured beer with a small white head. I allowed the sediment to fall into my second pour, which produced a murkey darker yellow/orange looking liquid that had a grubby cream head. The two glasses obviously gave me two vastly different tastes and it was like having two different beers, I liked them both. The clean taste of the first beer was so refreshing and the meatier second pour had such a depth of body it was great too. This breweries beers are all good, the beers are flavoursome and well made, this beer is a fine exmple of a Flanders amber beer.

psilosophy (672) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - MAY 13, 2013
Bouteille de 33 cl. Couleur entre dorée et ambrée, trouble avec présence de sédiments, mousse abondante qui tient bien. Une bière de garde qui a du caractère et qui n’est pas sans rappeller la jenlain ambrée avec ses arômes caramélisés, son bouquet automnal et des notes florales. Elle réussit un bel amalgame amer-acide-sucré. la carbonnation est très pétillante mais reste moelleurse. Une agréable découverte, trouvée à l’Entrepôt - Courcelles les Lens.

Bière peu orthodoxe, mais assez réussi. On relève des notes de fruits, voir même de légumes, mais sans être bizarre. Belle mousse blanche, robe cuivrée, légèrement sucré, ce qui n’est jamais une bonne chose dans une bière.

Pours a very hazy amber with a white head. Aromas of citrus and bananas. Taste the same with some malt sweetness. Not to bad. Long lasting head. Decent lacing in the glass.

JorisPPattyn (9471) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAR 20, 2003
Orange beer with golden shine. Yeast in suspension. Thick, slightly yellowish head, relatively stable. Nose of orange rind, spicey (peppery, paprika); weedy - weeds or shrubs in early spring, fresh wood. Citrussy, neutral to sweet taste, some acidity form carbonation. Some spices again, difficult to say what (paprika,allspice,szechuan, pepper, maybe some liquorice). Very refreshing, spritzy, even like a galvanic current in the mouth; medium-bodied. Liqueurish aftertaste. If there are true summer beers, then this is a spring ale. It is not, however, a bière de mars. The beer is "Ecocert" certified, which is probably Europes' severest bio-labelling.

Bottled. Muddy orange, creamy head. Lightly raisiny with deep maltiness. Soft and rounded, quite sweet. Discretely flavourful and well balanced.
