3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Gingerman. Pours a clear auburn with standard white head. Aroma is primarily toasted sesame seeds and cereal. Buttery flavor, almost popcorn-like, with notes of toast, simcoe, and roasted malt. I keep going back to "toasty." A touch too buttery.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear orange brown pour with a light tan head. Nutty aroma with a bit of coffee. Slightly funky. Dry cereal flavor, just a touch of sweetness. A little nutty with a hint of caramel. Dry finish. Not bad.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: clear bronze with a one-finger light tan head; some lacing. Aroma: malty and sweet, with caramel and toasted nuts. Taste: toasty, nutty, malty and sweet; lots of grains, with minimal hops. Finish: clean, crisp, sweet, and a little powdery. Notes: Disclaimer: I love a good lager, so I found it very enjoyable. I felt the chestnut flour did impart a little extra nuttiness to the flavor, and some of that dry, slightly talc-like complexion to the palate. Very nice. Ratebeer indicates it’s retired, but I just got this bottle from the Rare Beer Club.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Couleur cuivrée sombre, légère mousse. Nez malté orge et farine châtaigne, on dirait un bon marron glacé, atypique. Gout malté caramel, note d’épices et bonnes châtaignes en poudre. Bon corps. Fin assez longue et ronde en bouche. Simple mais efficace, plus goûteuse que les autres Pietra, et atypique dans les noël.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep amber colour. This beer pours a good creamy head, slowly diminishing, but quite persistent. Hazelnut, apricot and alcohol in the aroma. The taste is moderately sweet with traces of caramel, spices and peach. The aftertaste is quite bitter and alcoholic, with traces of chestnut (typical for this brewery, even if much lighter than the normal Pietra beer) and almonds. Interesting beer, just like all the products of this brewery!
