The taste the chesnut is adding feels incredible. I loved it! In a hot place (like corsica), it's light enough to not asleep you, and it's very good to drink when eating "charcuterie".

33cl bottle. Pours a clear brown (almost orange) color with a frothy brown head. Malty aroma with hints of orange peels. Taste is obviously chestnuts, with a bit of caramel. Bitter aftertaste, but it’s very pleasant

I don’t get much in the aroma. Wow! this is a very smoky beer. Maybe a bit nutty. Strange but in a good way. Nice smoke taste.

It’s pretty hot down here in Florida, and I needed a good thirst quencher...this one hit the spot. Cloudy, orange appearance, with some sediment floating in it? Honey, oak, malt aroma, the middle is not thin at all, which I really loved, and it finished w/ a carbonated, bitter, hint of orange peel. Very surprised by this brew, I could drink it all day by the grill if it weren’t 1.99$ for a 8oz bottle.

Very bitter taste with some honey and hops nutes in palate. Long finish. Snowy head stays for long. Golden colour, almost ideal. A good beer.

Interesting. There’s an unusual but pleasant candylike note, presumably from the chestnuts, in the aroma and flavor; otherwise it’s pretty ordinary.

Beautiful clear light brown-amber color with medium sparkling. In a first time is very frothy, but after some time the foam tends to be compact. i feel so much the flavor of chestnuts, cereals and notes of caramel, this beer has moderate grade of bitterness and slightly sweet. It’s different from the usual types of beer, very nice.
