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

Metalhead (643) - 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.

AleRider78 (631) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - APR 19, 2015
Bottle came with a cork and a metal type strap to hold it in?! Weird! But, poured a very large foamy, off-white head. Pale amber colour in appearance. Lot of lacing, top to finish. Light roasted malts and grains in aroma. Flavours of malts, barley, sour type fruits (lemon), pretty sweet as well. A bit bitter on the aftertaste, taste of alcohol is apparent. Pretty strong beer (10%!) but doesn’t show it much. Ok stuff.

Aml42000 (622) - Washington, USA - SEP 17, 2012
Clear amber color with a thick off white head. Extremely high carbonation and a lively mouthfeel. The nose shows white grape and apples. Pears and brioche on the palate. Medium finish.

Moz (613) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - MAY 5, 2007
Bottle, 75cl. Hazy golden colour with a white frothy head. Grainy aroma with a light tone of citrus. Soft grainy flavour with a taste of yeast. A clear bitterness. Average carbonation & body.

Senap (609) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAY 23, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2015 Från år 2015. Lättsam och drickvänlig i linje med klassen. Ska jag säga något kritiskt så slår alkoholen igenom lite för mycket inledningsvis.

Good deal of carbonation with a thick white head and a slightly orange-yellow appearance. Yeasty, musty nose. Slightly metallic and a light sour, tart component as well. This beer improved much as the carbonation settled and the complex subtleties of the beer shone through.

Parket (582) - Bruges, BELGIUM - OCT 24, 2011
75cl bottle, bought in grocery in Cassel, France. Unfiltered yellow coloured with unstable white head. Smell: some alcohol. taste: yeasty, malty, much alcohol, some industrial taste. Not bad for a french beer, but some overrated ale.

flemdawg (559) - Rowlett, Texas, USA - OCT 1, 2004
Hopefully this is the right beer. Had some trouble figuring out if it was the regular 3 monts or this one. Anyway. Fluffy white head that floated atop a copper body. Good lacing too. Sour lemon aroma mixed with some cheese, cobweb, and alcohol. Interesting for sure. Dry alcohol, sourness, spicey, musty tatste. But all very subtle. Rather tasty and interesting.

craftbeersweden (559) - SWEDEN - JUL 14, 2014
Clear golden color with a lot of sparkling bubbles seaking the sky. Three finger high, white, foamy head that leaves lacing on the glass. Nose: belgian ale, yeast, honey, sugar, green apples, pears, lemon and a bit of orange. Taste: Complex taste of marzipan, citrus, lemon curd, orange, sweet caramel malt, pears and banana. Medium body with high carbonation, almoust like Champagne. Soft texture. Feels luxury and classic! I like this!
