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

samogotchi (1) - - AUG 4, 2016 does not count
Bought in bottle, from Carrefour Toulon. Pours Amber with a tight, lagerish head. Smells of apricot, black pepper and liquorice. No masking the booze in the taste, but continues to be a hint of spice and an underlying wheat flavour (almost cous cous). Fairly good, but not exceptional. Great value for 2.80 a large bottle

Jopolis (43) - - JUL 8, 2016
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 (307) - 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.

Cerveja de aspecto dourado, aroma doce e frutado, forte gosto de malte, sabor diferenciado, não se assemelha ao aroma, não sei definir, porém é saborosa

vidmidia (286) - 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 (132) - 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.

Vighals (3256) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - DEC 27, 2015
Gylden brun klar med fingerhøyt offwhite skum. Lukter fudge, korn og gjær. Middels fylde. Søtlig fudge i smak, noe bitterhet og alkohol ligger der.
