Moderately strong beer, amber, marked in the malt and assertive bitterness. Fruity aroma, smooth and full bodied in the race. This beer style is a recreation of the craft produced only in French cereal areas, near the Belgian border.

Bottle (6.0% ABV) at Earth, Carvoeiro. Hazy amber body with a thin off-white head. Steady carbonation. Aroma of red apple, raspberry vinegar and caramel. Flavour of marmalade and nectarine with a light hoppy finish. Medium body with a frothy texture. Soft fizz. Sweet and juicy.

Bottle from El Corte Ingles, Lisbon. Hazy amber with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, caramel and light bretty. Flavor is medium sweet and light acidic. Dry and light acidic. No doubt this brett infection wasn’t intended, but it works well. 120116

Un cadeau de mon père, directement du Portugal! C’est toujours un cadeau apprécié une bière importée! L’apparence est réussie, d’un orange riche sumontée d’une mousse relativement durable. Au nez, je ne sais pas si c’est voulu mais on sent clairement les bretts. Ce n’est pas mauvais... Un peu mince et très loin de la deScription annoncée, mais pas mauvais pour autant. Je suspecte des bretts non voulus, mais ces derniers font parfois de la magie et ici font de cette bière une expérience somme toute intéressante.

750ml swing-top bottle from Baptista Supermarket, Luz, Portugal. Hazy amber coloured with a sweet, slight tart red fruit, toffee and spicy herbal flavour followed by dried fruit and warming almond, oak and spiced pumpkin on the finish. Very Nice.

Ysok02 (789) - MOns, BELGIUM - OCT 25, 2015
Robe ambrée, mousse abondante. Nez assez agréable sur un pointe balsamique, de la griotte, des épices. Bouche à l’attaque fraîche, belle élégance, de l’équilibre et une finale acidulée. Une bière raffraîchissante.

(Sovina Amber) Half bottle at the Incubate Craft Beer Festival, Tilburg. Clear body, deep orange in colour, with a small and frothy, off-white head on top, with low retention. Aroma has caramel, barnyard, grains. Taste is mostly sweet with occasionalty sour notes, grains, malts,some fruity notes, caramel and light alcohol. Medium thin body, biting carbonation, mildly dry on the palate. Okay.
