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

2011 vintage - 10% abv 2012 vintage - 9% abv

Big thanks to SFLpunk for sending this bottle my way. Served in a Captain Lawrence tulip. At the time of consumption, the #3 Biere de Garde. Reviewed from my tasting sheet. Pours a clear golden color with an average, fizzy white head and some spotty lacing. Thin cap throughout. The nose is light and smells mostly like pilsener malt. Light cardboard and bread. Very grainy. The flavor is quite grainy as well. Light body and no contribution from yeast or hops. Fizzy carbonation and a dry finish. Not my cup of tea. Serving type: bottle

Sparf (101) - Östersund, SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2012
Härligt syrlig doft. inslag av källare och övermogna äpplen. Drar aning åt spontanjäst. Mycket kolsyra som skapar ett stort ljust skum. Färgen är särdeles trist brunaktig. Smaken har renodlade malt- och fruktsmaker. Dock stör en oblanserad sötma intrycket. Det hela blir brygd där smakerna inte gifter sig på ett bra sätt. Eftersmaken har en träig beska och en lätt örtig, pepprig ton, allt inslaget i kartong. Kroppen är tämligen tunn dock utan att vara vattnig.

Rune (7348) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 31, 2013
750ml bottle, vintage 2013, 8 % abv, from Systembolaget, Luleå, via Gaute. Champagne cork that gave a good shot followed by smoke when opened. Close to clear golden body. Dense, white head blanketing the glass. Sweet fruit and malts on the nose added by vapour of alcohol. Sweet wheat, honey, and sweet, fruity caramel to the taste buds. Soft and sweet fruity ending. Notable alcohol. Rather easy to drink. Far from great, gives a bland impression (session in Tromsø, 30.07.2013).
