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

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, 11 20 printed on the back label (best before date?). Pours lightly cloudy golden orange color with a nice 3 finger fluffy white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice foamy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big pear, grape, citrus zest, pepper, clove, herbal, floral, earth, grass, hay, light funk, bread, and yeast spiciness. Damn nice aromas with good balance, strength, and complexity. Taste of pear, apple, citrus zest, pepper, clove, herbal, floral, grass, hay, earth, bread, light funk, light honey, and yeast spiciness. Lingering notes of light fruits, pepper, clove, hay, grass, herbal, floral, earth and yeast spices on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic flavor balance and complexity; nice spicy/malt flavor balance; zero cloying flavors on the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a lightly slick and very crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is extremely well hidden with zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a fantastic Biere De Garde! Great flavor balance and complexity; very smooth to sip on for 8.3%. This is extremely crisp and delicious stuff.

Apresenta um espuma farta e longa duração. Sua cor é de caramelo. O aroma é doce e é Silvestre. O sabor é apresenta um dulçor presente no início com a presença de caramelo e Lima. Finaliza com um amargor suave que remete a frutas.

Beergaard (287) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 5, 2016
One of the better biere de garde i’ve had and deffinately better than the others i’ve had from Saint Sylvestre. Light in color with a small but longlasting white head. Aroma is pleasantly spicy with a strong and malty backbone. Tastewise it has yeast, fruit, spieces, some booze and once again a strong and caramel like malty backbone. Very well ballanced beer.

Flaska från SB. Klar orange med högt fluffigt vitt skum. Blommiga och örtiga toner. Citrus, bröddeg, jäst. I bakgrunden en lätt, söt äppelton. Lätt kropp. Nära doften i smaken. Snällt humlebett.

vidmidia (280) - Vila Velha, BRAZIL - MAR 8, 2016
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.

Magela (126) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - MAR 4, 2016
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.
