COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
9%vol. 33, 75 and 150cl Beer very amber in color, strong, nose fruity and delicate, soft and round with the palate; slightly hopped but correctly spiced (roasted chicory, coriander, and sweet orange peel, among other ingredients). Bottle fermented and complex. On the Port-y side fresh. Spiced distinctly with orange, corriander and chicory. Should cellar nicely.

This ale pours a cloudy, reddish amber color with lots of yeast particles floating in it. It has a very thin, white head that rapidly dissipates. The aroma is musty and reminds me of sour fruits. Medium body with little carbonation, the flavor is slightly fruity but annoyingly bland. The finish is sweet and fruity with a mild tartness. The alcohol is well hidden. This beer seems like it could be so much more. I don't really think too much of this one. It has no off flavors but it seems rather bland and flat tasting. But it does have some decent fruit notes.

Sweet, fruity, and tart flavor. Finishes almost wine like and bitter. By the way why is the pig wiping his ass on the label.

rauchbier (3753) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2003
Bottle conditioned. Hazy amber orange, thin white head and low condition. Mix of oranges, malt and toffee in the nose. Initialy fruity sweet malt in the mouth became slightly apple-tart towards the end before a short sweet bitter finish laced with mild tartness.

fiulijn (18101) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 6, 2003
Cochonnette. Beautiful red-amber color. Aroma of malt; warm alcohol. Good body strength, but average malt presence and a touch of alcohol; warming. Strong ale, lacking of character.

JPDIPSO (5381) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 4, 2003
Amber color with a ton of "floaties". Fizzy foamy head. I don't suppose it would be quite as fizzy if I had not dropped it as I checking in at the hotel and the cap started to leak and I was forced to sip it over the cap as I went to my room... Sweet yellow currant aroma. Sweet honey and grape flavors. Really sweet. Light pepper and orange in the finish. Much to sweet for my tastes.

Kåstå (1273) - Mol, BELGIUM - JAN 24, 2003
Amber coloured beer wtih a small head. Fruity liquorice aroma. There is a slight metallic taste, unfortunately. Light bitter and liquorice taste with hints of port wine. A well balanced beer.

This one wasn’t bad. Pour a dark brown with lots of sediment. The head was light brown and the sediment mixed with the head. The odor reminds me of citrus fruits and slight spiciness. Definite alcohol taste to it but the taste is somewhat dry. There’s a slight zip on the tongue when it touches it. There’s also some candyish notes within as well. It’s sweet, indeed. Worth trying. One thing I didn’t like is the stupid label - a pig running with a white t-shirt that has a pig on it. C’mon, we can do better than that!

what a label,that is one happy pig, my label different though quite similar to picture.My label is a female, and is wearing a T-Shirt. I smell Vinegar, thats not good, decent lace,predictable head, yep its bitter, and a disapointment at first, there is some Belgian sugar in here though as well as some pepper,not good for beer,it is quite different, somehow reminds me of flavored soda pop, can’t think if I like it or not, quite an odd beverage,apple abounds here, not orange so much, but there is corriander here too, your choice if you find a bottle, can’t say if I would have another one,well maybe.

Petite Vapeur.Ive had terrible and great beers from this brewery.This bottle was very good.Brown sugar, brandy, cocoa aroma.Murky brown appearance with fine carbonation.Mellow coffee caramel spicy flavors with orange zest finish.Lingering dryish licorice finish.I think this ale benefited from aging a year or so.

Lots of thick foam on the pour, clouded reddish/amber body. Nice sweet fruity aroma, apple, grape and blackcerry syrup. Vary sweet on the palate, green apple, very yeasty, high alcohol finish but hardly sours or bitters. Sludgy sediment around the top of the bottle after pouring.
