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

Pinball (10799) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 30, 2011
bottle from kihoskh. 2011 red stamp. Corked and cork held in place by a large metal clip. Very unusual, looks very rudimentary. When openng the bottle some beer gushed out, leaving approx 60cl of the 75cl originally in the bottle. The gushing died out quickly. Clear golden, smooth small offwhite head. Flowery and fruity aroma, citrussy hint - aroma reminds me of a belgian blonde. Flavor is yellow fruity, yeasty, faint citrussy or sour tinge, otherwhise dry, but sweet yellow fruity. reminds me of a messy belgian blonde, but in fact an okay belgian style beer. Better than the many boring biere de garde i’ve had from france. Alc. well used, flavor well adjusted to the strength.

Vignale (2061) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 23, 2011
Jag blir lätt konfunderad av denna öl. Jag mindes den som ganska en ganska lätt blonde/ bier du garde och på Ratebeer anges alkoholhalten till 8%. Den här flaskan är på 10% och liknar snarare en trippel. Som sådan är den dock riktigt fin. Relativt torr, fruktig, bra kraft i de 10 utan att kännas spritig. En trevlig dryck att ha på midsommarbordet igår. Inget fynd men ett mycket gott öl.

Bottle, 75cl corked. A clear one, golden in color and with a dense, off-white head of moderate size. Matly, lightly caramel-ish on the nose. Some hoppy fruityness and a faint note of yeast. It’s high on carbonation, but pleasant, dry and full-bodied. Caramel, fruityness, some yeast and a distinct alcoholic touch. Some bitterness towards the end. Although alcoholic, it’s a quite nice beer that I certainly could have with some lunch. 110820
