Thanks to ThirstyBird! Golden colour. The beer starts malty and fullbodied, a bit sweet. The mainpart is nicely fruity-sweetish, probably due to the chestnuts. Nice earthy-woody flavour. The aftertaste is long, a bit bitter, sweetish-malty with the chestnut-flavour below all! --> nice combination! --> 10/12/9/10

Picked up a 750 cork top from Marty’s...a lot of pomp and circumstance for a Vienna lager claiming to be amber ale. Cool malty aroma with a hint of hop and spice. Medium orange color, nearly clear. Pretty unique flavor actually. Kind of a sweet nutty profile with weird yeast. What do you call nuts on your chest...you know where this is going. Unfortunately the body is not substantial and needs to be crisper for it’s weight. Glad I tried it though.

Cerveja leve apesar do sabor de castanha. Muito agradável e refrescante. Muito boa no geral.

Bottle at Quilon. Nice full brown amber colour. Malty smell. Unusual flavour, I guess it must be the chestnuts but I’d never have guessed if I didn’t know. Slightly nutty, malty, sweetish. Not bad, interesting, not amazing.

330ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours amber with a thin white head, which goes quite quickly. Aromas are nutty malt, some cake mix and allspice. Taste has more sweet than bitter, and speaking of bitter, there’s an unusual cask-brown-ale note to this, which I’m not sure what to make of. Good though, slips down easily.

26.09.2013 0,33l Bottle. Golden colour with white head. Aroma is malty with some kind of sour notes. The label says chestnut flour. Cant say I know what that would or sholud taste like? The beer is fresh with low bitterness. Medium to weak body. Aftertaste is soft and leaves very little flavours or bitterness.

biere corse de caractere! Forte amertume, on reconnait la chataigne au palet, et une longue fin en bouche qui reste présente. Pas mal!

ferit (112) - Schleswig-Holstein, GERMANY - SEP 10, 2013
lekker van geur. Wat Becks ook heeft. Dit is de geur van wiet. Maar dit biertje heeft nog een extra geur die het nog lekkerder maakt. Je ruikt geroosterde nootjes. Mooi goud kleurig. Schuim blijft redelijk lang. Geen super smaak, je proeft heel klein beetje de gerosterde nootjes terug maar niet erg sterk. Zeer zacht biertje met weinig uitschietende smaken. Zachte nootjes smaak. Een rosé onder de biertjes. Al met al een lekker biertje voor in de zomer of als je een lekker biertje wil drinken maar de volgende dag niet gevolgen er van voelt omdat hij te sterk is.

(33 cl bottle from supermarket in Provence; BBD: April 18th 2015) Pours a clear amber with frothy, white head. Decent retention. Aroma is dusty with hoppy, spicy notes. Medium body, soft carbonation, oily texture and a drying finish. Flavour is moderately sweet with a drying, somewhat bitter finish that could be derived from the chestnut for all I know.
