ALLOVATE (2958) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 27, 2006
Sadly lacking in all aspects I was glad to finish this one off quickly and move onto something more sessionable. Expected a lot more from this famous Bière de garde producer. Poured into it’s own bulbous tulip glass, cool but not cold. Has an attractive, sparkling burnished copper body with a thin dollop of cream floating on top that left minimal lace. Overly soft and difficult to pick up, the aroma seemed a mix of caramel, figs and driftwood, and a late hint of salted meats. Not inviting so I was glad it wasn’t too pronounced. Thin and watery in the mouth, soft in carbonation and slightly oily in the back end. Oxidised, Vienna-style malts (like rust!), rye bread and some fruit concentrates that add a light sweetness upfront. Finish is short, subtle linger of eggs and rust. Not very agreeable to drink; thin and lacking definition. Disappointing!!! (25cL, 01/09/06, Int’l Beer Shop, W. Leederville)

Amber, quite clear, white frothy head. Smell of dust, light malts, some fruity yeast and caramel. Moderate sweet, malty, some caramel, some yeast notes, moderate bitter finish. A bit better than the blonde version

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - JAN 19, 2004
The best of the three Ch Ti I tasted tonight! Clear amber body with a tall beige head. Sweet malty aroma with notes of nut and milk chocolate. Flavor is also sweet with malt and nutmeg. Like the other Ch Ti I really miss some hops!!
