JaKeAFC (857) - - APR 15, 2012
33cl bottle, about 1.50€, 6%.
Aspect: Amber, clear, with a nice fine offwhite head reducing to small lace.
Nose: quiet, nothing on spot.
Aroma: unclear malts, really bland dusty chestnuts, minerals, an iron note.
Taste: flat, no particular sweet\bitter combination.
Palate: watery, light bodied, soft carbonation, dusty finish.
Strange, unclean, somewhat muddy. Not nice but not terrible.

Ysok02 (791) - MOns, BELGIUM - JUN 9, 2016
Robe ambrée, belle mousse abondante. Nez qui sent la chataigne sur un fond de malt et de houblon. Bouche à l’attaque assez légère, fine amertume mais manque d’ampleur et de longueur. Bière à essayer bien fraîche sur une plage corse... mais pas en belgique.

ShivanDragon (3071) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - JUN 8, 2016
Amber met witte kraag, aroma van mout, graan en gist. Smaken evenzo redelijk zoet, wat weeïg graan/mout, droog mondgevoel, mais, redelijk co2, matige body.

Bière de couleur belle comme son pays : la Corse. Cherchez les arômes de châtaigne... bonne chance

greks (306) - GERMANY - JUN 2, 2016
0,75 l Flasche aus einem kleinen Laden irgendwo auf Korsika. Orangegold, leicht bräunlich, mit kleiner Schaumkrone, die schnell abfällt. Riecht süßlich. Schmeckt nach Honig, Karamell, nussig

Sweet malty aroma, with some nut influence. An initial lager flavour is finished with quite a sharp finish.

cervmagpt (622) - PORTUGAL - MAY 24, 2016
Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 2B). Bottle 33 cl - Batch unknown. AROMA: medium-low malty grainy aroma. clean lager profile. APPEARANCE: light amber color and translucent. medium-low light ivory, moussy head, with good retention. TASTE: moderate malty flavor with slight toasty bready notes. medium bitterness with a dry finish and slightly bitter. clean lager profile. PALATE: medium-low body and slightly creamy. moderate carbonation. OVERALL: an interesting amber lager made with chestnut flour.

fenouil (18) - courbevoie, FRANCE - APR 30, 2016
Très originale de par sa provenance (Corse) et sa conception à base de farine de châtaigne. Manque vraiment de puissance et de concentration . La châtaigne est peu présente en bouche. Une bière de soif.

Turtles (1650) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 23, 2016
Bottled @ Ma Champagne. Clear amber, frothy white head, good lacing. Faint caramel aroma. Mid-sweet, soft mouthfeel. Grainy taste with sweet caramel, dough and syrup.
