DandyLion (517) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2014
Bottle @ Bistrot Pierre Leicester. Amber colour. Aroma of sweet malts. Taste is sweet malt too with malty biscuits and a bit of malty bitterness. Ok. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

freretoc (685) - Besançon, FRANCE - APR 3, 2014
Bu en bouteille de 33cl, couleur ambrée et peu de mousse, en première bouche on a l’impression de boire une lager de base mais l’arrière goût de marron en fin de bouche et juste intéressant et ne rend pas cette bière passable

Renobob (637) - Besançon, FRANCE - APR 3, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 33cl. Meilleure réussite que la Colomba. Goût assez particulier, on distingue bien la châtaigne. Mis à part ça, peu d’intérêt.

gyllenbock (4634) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 22, 2014
Bottle from a local shop in Nice. Clear dark golden with a small head. Aroma and taste of malt, chestnuts, light spices and some bread. A light bitterness in this one. Drinkable but a bit boring.

16/III/14 - 33cl bottle @ Erwin’s ponton - BBE: 2014 (2014-290) Thanks to Erwin for sharing the bottle!

Clear orange beer, small aery irregular white head, little stable, non adhesive. Aroma: toast, hay, bit of caramel, bit metallic, orange peel, more metallic. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: some caramel, little bitter, toast, grains, bit malty, metallic. Aftertaste: toast, some chocolate, little bitter, caramel. Not great, but not as bad as I was fearing.

Marcius (207) - Geneva, SWITZERLAND - MAR 16, 2014
Appearance with amber color and low head of cream, but very beautiful. Aroma barely noticeable. Sweet flavor, slightly bitter, but very interesting,can feel the nut. A good beer, I would say. I recommend it.

LowBrau (74) - Tonawanda, New York, USA - MAR 14, 2014
Hazy dark gold, minimal head. Nose is like most European beers, but with a whiff of lemon. First sip is malty, nutty, and earthy...so are all subsequent sips. Moderately sweet and some bitterness. Pretty unique, must be that chestnut flour?

Étonnamment surpris au premier abord une bière qui semble etre assez commercial mais sa note de châtaignes est vraiment agréable
