Amber beer (8 % alc. / vol.) refermented in the bottle. A speciality beer brewed over lees in winter using the first malt and hops from the last harvest. Roasted malts give it its characteristic amber hue. Obtained by top fermentation, the "Biere Nouvelle" is characterised by fruity flavours and a good bite. Biere Nouvelle must be served with care (leaving behind the fine yeast sediment) at about 10°C. Available from February while stocks last in 750 ml bottles corked and stamped

Cor de mel, límpida. Espuma abundante e persistente. Aroma adocicado de caramelo, mel e cítricos. Sabor adocicado equilibrado, levemente ácido, com notas de caramelo, mel, casca de laranja e pera. Retrogosto amargo, um pouco adstringente.

Good one. Creamy foam. Has a honey nose and taste. The flavour is a mix of malts and citric. The honey gives a balace between the two.

Gylden brun klar med fingerhøyt offwhite skum. Lukter fudge, korn og gjær. Middels fylde. Søtlig fudge i smak, noe bitterhet og alkohol ligger der.

Turtles (1655) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 12, 2015
750ml bottle from Systembolaget. Clear golden with a thick fluffy head that lingers and leaves lacing. The aroma is sweet, honey, yeast, toffee, pear. Medium body with many small bubbles that tickle your mouth, fresh and sweet mouth feel. The taste is complex with fruit and caramel flavors. Pear, candied apples, citrus, orange marmalade, caramel. Finish with some alcohol warmth. Very well-made!

bottle @ Vino Bellissimo / Lima OH --- Clear medium amber with lots of rising bubbles, generous two-finger ivory head, strips of lace. Aroma of malt and burnt caramel. Taste is full-bodied malt that moves through the swallow adding fizz and edgy toffee and hay, perhaps light dried fruit. The finish adds slight bittering, but this is mostly a malt brew. Big, some alcohol in the finish, lots of caramel, solid Biere de Garde.
