COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Le brun cuivré éclatant de sa robe est le préambule d’un univers de douceur et de rondeur. Le nez malté, légèrement fruité, concorde parfaitement avec un goût orienté vers des saveurs « caramel ». Soutenue à tous niveaux, elle reste très équilibrée. Une très légère note de torréfaction nous surprend toutefois en fin de bouche. Première bière produite par la brasserie, sa rondeur rappelle le plaisir et nous invite à passer un moment simple de dégustation.

Light brown with lasing head. Aroma and flavour are both malt heavy and have sweet, almost perfumed background notes.

Vignale (2365) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 21, 2015
Flaska från Saveur-Biere. Skummar lätt ur flaskan, murrig brun färg, mycket disig. Söt maltig doft med mycket bakjäst. Känns inte riktigt utjäst, söta murrig smaker av degspad och karamell. Bakom det finns en fin fruktighet med söta röda plommon och torkade aprikoser och på slutet en lätt beska. Stilmässigt kanske en belgisk amber, typ. Inte klockren men fruktigheten var trevlig.

fiulijn (15954) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 8, 2014
Draught at Birratrovo, Como
Dark red-chestnut color, with creamy head. Mild aroma of dark malts, very light sourness and ashes.
Caramelized malts, moderate residual sweetness, a bit too much ashes that increase the bitterness. Unbalanced; crossover Belgian Ale and Stout.
