This 100% barley malt beer is blended with roasted malts and hops to five it a spicy, crisp taste. Bottle refermentation imparts a yeast enriched flavour. Not to be confused with the different Ambree served at the Cheval Blanc brewpub.

Formerly known as Cheval Blanc Ambrée and then as Spéciale Ambrée. Recently changed to RJ No.926.

french tickler (649) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 26, 2007
Drank in a tulip glass. Dark caramel amber poor with a nice sticky off white head. Very malty aromas, spicy, apples, caramel and slightly alcohol... Full bodied, thick and frothy mouthfeel. Very malty taste again with a spicy peppery twist to it. Nicely carbonated not to many flavors, perfect balance of bitterness and mouthfeel. Very basic yet complicated amber ale.

mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 6, 2006
Bottle. Pours a hazy dark orange body with a small white frothy head. The aroma has dusty apples and spice. Flavour is quite yeasty and sharply bitter with plenty of fruity pear and oranges. Refreshing. Thanks for the bottle. Doug.

Slightly hazy amber. Dominantly malty but balanced by a decent hops presence. Ok, but nothing special.

rederic (3228) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 25, 2006
Hazy amber hue, with a tan head, but falls quickly, with a yeasty, bready nose, with some spicy notes of coriander, nutmeg, touch of brown sugar, caramelized malt, and a fruit accent in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a crisp caramelized malt character, a spicy coriander note, yeasty accent, roasted malt and also a delicate flowery hint and a fruity flavor, leading towards a nice citrus floral hoppy finish.

Quevillon (2728) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 16, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2007 Une délicieuse saveur malte d’orge, légèrement épicé qui la donne une belle apparence et un arome enchanteur.

blankboy (6776) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 9, 2006
Bottle shared with HogTownHarry & tupalev -- courtesy of me. Pours a cloudy dark reddish-brown with a small diminishing white head. Nice enough aroma of malt, yeast, citrus and spices. Flavour is quite yeasty with some spices and malt. Kind of Saison-ish. Dry finish. It’s not great but it goes down easy and is fairly refreshing and that’s O.K..

HogTownHarry (6371) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JAN 7, 2006
Bottle (341ml). Shared with blankboy and tupalev, courtesy of blankboy. Poured cloudy orange with a decent off-white head. Aroma of orange juice, spice, pepper, coriander, lemon - much like a generic belgian witbier, some sharp hops and a plethora of yeast. Taste is juicy, peppery and refreshing - more of a summer thing, really. Mouthfeel was astringent and light - overall simple and refreshing, but pretty average.
