COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

Lubiere (10766) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 15, 2006
2006 version. Golden coloured beer with an verflowing thick white head, lacing. Light crisp malts with herbal grassy notes. Light sweet malt in mouth, with biscuity notes, good hopping, medium bodied. A decent garde, but not as good as Gavroche. Bought at Joanette.

rederic (3202) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 5, 2006
Tasted under the name "Bière Nouvelle" 2006, bright yellow honey color, with a frothy white head, sort of barley malt nose, grainy, with a faint toffeeish note, kind of a corny accent, and a wet straw and honeyish aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate, with a crisp floral hops character, sweet pale malt, hay note, with an alcoholic strength at 8% well hidden, leading towards a delicate flowery hop bitterness.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 2, 2006
Pours with an orangish-gold body topped by a thick head with a good amount of lacing. It’s sweet, buttery and toffeeish with a slight grassy note. Medium bodied, smooth and slightly warming.

rsmeds (228) - Turku, FINLAND - JAN 29, 2006
Bottle. Pours a hazy copper orange, with a small white head. Dry, fruity aroma with a musty apple character. The apples return in the dry, somewhat alcoholic flavor. Very much like calvados, in fact! Unfortunately, it’s a wee bit watery, and has an annoyingly bubbly, carbonated mouthfeel. Quite original nevertheless.

mabjork (674) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 8, 2006
Hazy light brown with minor white head. It has an earthy scent, something you can find in the flavour as wel, reminds me of spoiled apples with a sweet after taste.

TBone (13536) - Pori, FINLAND - JAN 8, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2007 Bottled vintage 2005, 75cl bottle, alc. 8 %
Clear amber colorm decent white head. Woody, a bit earthy nose. Very earthy, mould flavor. Crisp, carbonated, grassy hops in the background. Some apple, maybe from calvados barrels? (4/3/6/3/11 2.7)
Bottled vintage 2007
Clear orange color, small white head. Earthy, apple-like aroma. Cellary flavor, fruity, woody hops and alcohol. Similar to 2005 vintage. (6/2/6/3/12 2.9)

Metalhead (633) - Lake Zurich, Illinois, USA - DEC 2, 2005
orangey deep honey color with a large pillowy head. I could smell this from a couple feet away when first opened. Aroma is sweet like a combo of honey,mild malt,grains,yeast,hints of pound cake. Slightly dry finish. Left the lips a tad sticky. This bottle was 2 yrs old. Paid $8. Would not buy all the time but nice to have a couple stashed away.

Aubrey (3482) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - NOV 15, 2005
Hazy and light orange. Fresh, inviting nose. Sprightly aromas. Light, fluffy, pillowy body was nice. Light lemon and sweet orange. Mild, cakey-sweet malts; very faint bitterness. Yeasty, doughy and fresh. Delicate beer. Pleasant to drink.
