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

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.

Flavour: refreshing, hoppy, chemical, special, pears... Galia melon aftertaste.
Palate: delightful, even though it’s bubbly and acrid it is charming...

nick76 (4300) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 3, 2012
The aroma is yeasty and fruity and somewhat between sweet and dry. There are defiantly hops in here. The appearance is golden with a copper hue. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall a nice beer, pretty straight forward but good.
