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

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.

Glouglouburp (5936) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 24, 2007
Partly cloudy dark blonde body with a large slowly diminishing white head. Aroma of cotton candy. Very sweet beer with bready malts and bland yeast. Somewhat saved by some crisp kind-of-noble hops. Drinkable but very simple sweet-fix like so many others. Bière SameOld SameOld.

Aroma: hoppy, yeasty, pears, fresh hops. Musty but refreshing. Fresh.
Appearance: typical orange yellow lager but fluffy foam. Nice lacings.
Flavour: refreshing, hoppy, chemical, special, pears... Galia melon aftertaste.
Palate: delightful, even though it’s bubbly and acrid it is charming...

Ungstrup (29019) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 1, 2009
Bottled. A hazy dark golden beer with a huge orangey head. The aroma has notes of sweet malt and caramel and just a hint of spices. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, and spices, as well as light notes of metal, leading to a dry bitter finish.

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 2, 2002
Very yeasty in appearance, nose and palate. Light brown colour, dark malts and nuttiness hide underneath the yeast on the palate. Finishes long and dry.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 1, 2006
The pour reveals a clear golden color with a thick frothy white head. Aroma and flavor of spicy malt with a sweet finish. The palate is light and the carbonation is lively. It isn’t bad but I feel this beer doesn’t have much too offer.
