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

Love the carbonated aspect of the beer, its a has a nice mildly sweet malty flavor slightly nutty, hardly any hops. when I drink this beer all I can thing about is having a nice Belgian cheese. this is a winner!

Svesse (6036) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 12, 2012
(Bottle, 2009 vintage) Golden colour with foamy, off-white head. Lots of sediment at the bottom of the bottle. Fruity, malty nose with apricots, orange, honey, flowers (jasmine, carnation) and a touch of yeast. Fruity, malty taste with notes of bread, honey, orange, apricots and a gentle spicy/floral bitterness in the finish. Medium body, mainly dry, but with some sweetness coming through towards the end. Well balanced and tasty. Excellent example of the style. Very nice.
