A true amber beer from Nord. It also respects the conditions of Saveurs en or. Its slightly roasty taste is obtained using torrefied malts.

esox (1213) - Oulu, FINLAND - AUG 21, 2008
0,75 l bottle. Hazy orange beer. The head is creamy with some bigger bubbles, white in colour and long lasting. Yeast particles in the liquid. Aroma has spiciness, sour apples, raisins, vinegar and a hint of alcohol. The finish has malty caramel and sour apples. Flavor is sweet&sour. Alcohol is clearly present in the finish. Medium bodied, a bit foaming and fizzy palate. Some alcohol burning.

Hazy orange color with medium, light beige, cremy and lacy very heterogenic head. Very fresh aroma is fruity(apples) and grassy. Sweet flavor is fruity, raisiny, spicy with alcohol notes. Also some grass in the aftertaste. Medium-bodied and low carbonated palate.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 8, 2008
Bottle @ Mondial 2008. Aroma of decent malt malt and some wheat? cloudy apricot, tiny white head. Taste of the malt starts the show, with a creamy, honey quality too. Light bodied, sweet, fine throat burn here. Very good offering.

Rastacouere (6162) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 3, 2008
Objectively speaking: A soft and fruity Bière de garde that lacks the cleanliness from their Blonde.
I like: Toasty malt introduction rapidly veers towards juicy red apples, dried figs – kinda juicy and unclean with a earthy/fruit seed bitterness from early oxidation. Leafy finish.
I dislike: This was tasted at Le Mondial 2008 festival, yet it felt as if it were not as fresh as possible.

Bottle@Home. Sweet caramel malts aroma. Amber color, small beige head, fair lace. Very sweet, figues, malty, nasty bitterness, hint of dirt in the finish. Sticky and way too sweet.

taunusmies (337) - FINLAND - DEC 3, 2007
Deep amber colour with a large head. Taste is unpleasantly sweet with a hint of sourness. Has also apples, other fruits and a bit yeast. Left a bit too "juicy" feeling.

Tranquillity (1577) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 1, 2007
Bottled and shared with FatPhil. Cranberry, red gooseberry aroma. Looks like some real ale, cupper colour, no head. Taste hoppy, very bitter, some fruits, unbalanced and watery.
