Bières De Neuch 25 Décembre 3.6
Bouteille 33 cl du Grain d’Orge - Neuchâtel (CH). Orangée trouble avec une haute mousse qui remplit tout le verre. Nez doux, sucré, épicé, rôti avec de la courge et banane. La bouche est très douce avec une texture crousti, tons de sucre brun, épices aromatiques de Noël, orange, levure, acidulité de froment. Bière chaleureuse tout à fait de saison même si un peu trop gazeuse.

Bières De Neuch Sambuca 3.4
Dunkelgelbe trübe Farbe, stabiler Schaum. Ein „Bière blanche“ mit Holunderblüten. Der Antrunk ist mild-weich und zugelich stark und leicht alkoholisch, aber sehr frisch. Diese frische Note hält sich mit einer ausgewogenen Herbe und dem witbiertypischen fahlen Aroma gepaart mit frisch-blumiger Fruchtigkeit, die von den Holunderblüten stammen könnte sehr lange im Mund. Dabei schön weich-mild und hefig-erfrischend. Der Nachgeschmack ist feinherb, fruchtig-frisch und leicht hefig.
→ Trotz der 6,5% sehr erfrischen und süffig. Ein leckeres Bier! 12+12+11+12 = 11,85

Cloudy amber color with abundant head; it makes me think there has been some unwanted refermentation in the bottle. The aroma is mild, with light raspberries and some yeast. Too much carbonation; apparently, a normal Ale, but the flavor has been impacted too much by the additional bottle fermentation, that created yeast byproducts, metallic feeling, too much bitterness.

Bières De Neuch la GuinNeuch 3.5
Bouteille 33 cl du Grain d’orge - Neuchâtel (CH). Bière noire à mousse châtain envahissante et interminable, s0’effondrant heureusement assez rapidement. Elle a des arômes grillés nets, chocalatés, de pain grillé. La bouche est fluide et corsée, moussue et dominée par le rôti. Amertume de torréfaction et houblon en filigrane. Equilibrée, sans lourdeur ni acidité excessive. Elle s’évanouit lentement sur des notes de café et chocolat noir.

Cloudy deep blond color; huge head, sign of excessive fermentation. The aroma is refreshing, flowery, delicate. The mouthfeel, as expected, is excessively carbonated, but behind it there is a reasonably good malt flavor, light sweetness, very light elderflowers and star anise.

Muddy nut brown, small creamy brownish head. Perfumic nose with hints of fudge and nuts. Flavor has some bitter hops, sweetish maltyness and some sourness. Ok balanced, Belgi-style flavor. Hoppyness in the aftertaste. Some sourness indicates that bottle might has been a bit infected too.

Beautiful beer, with a dark brown color and a generous creamy head. The aroma is light but very nice, mixing some caramel and roasted malt, perfumy; there is also a hint of cereals, hay, milk chocolate. Goody body structure, with velvety texture; well balanced flavor, sweet, with malt, caramel and delicate roasted malt, also some light spices. The roasted malt rises towards the final, with the hops. Balanced and very pleasant.
