3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The honey goes through as it should. It still has some sting. Suprisingly strong (didn’t feel that).

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Earthy nose, yeasty and sweet aromas too. Opaque gold orange, foamy head. Soft creamy malt. Hint of honey, though not very strong. Full body. Warming effect from the alcohol, but in background. Decent, interesting brew.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Hazy yellow colour, foamy mediumsized head. Aroma of skunky barnyard as well as cardboard and some sweet fruits. Quite dry, maybe a bit honey in flavour. Some frutis in the flavour too. Long dry grassy caramellish aftertaste. Alcohol is wellhidden in this one.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottled) Opaque orange with a medium, lacy head. Neutral, dryish, slightly spicy (coriander?) aroma with cardboard hints. The flavor is somewhat sweeter, with honey hints and slightly less evident hopping than in the ambree. Medium-bodied, smooth-carbonated palate. Practically an ambree with added honey - and definitely not bad.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark orange color, medium lasting lead. Sweet caramel nose - also taste with some hoppy nose. A bit to sweet for my liking.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 3, 2005 Draught
Hazy yellow, not much head. Strong aroma of herbs, hops and rye-breadish malts. Mouthfeel starts toffeeish, maybe with notes of honey. Then it turns to hoppy and dry. Very refreshing, you can’t notice 8%. Extremely soft palate. (7/3/8/5/16 3.9)
Re-rated, bottled (BB 09/2008)
Hazy orange, small yellowish creamy head. Hayish, dry aroma. Dry grassy/hay hoppy palate, which is cut by honey. Not overly sweet and not showing alcohol much. Basicly Saint-Monon Ambree with sweetness added. (6/3/7/4/14 3.4)

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle 33 cl) Hazy, pretty amber with a dense, sticky head. Rather discreet nose - perhaps a vague scent of honey and malt. Contains a nice - but never cloying - caramel-like sweetness and a subdued almost soft bitterness. A decent brew but not quite as refined as the other Saint-Monons I’ve tried. 080200

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sweet flavour. Quite nice mouthfeel, probably due to the honey. Aftertaste has a bit of honey.
