Maltesse est la toute nouvelle bière de la Brasserie Castelain. Déjà récompensée d’une Médaille d’Argent au Concours Général Agricole 2007, Maltesse sera commercialisée à partir du 30 mai dans le réseau Grandes et Moyennes Surfaces. Maltesse est une bière blonde aux reflets dorés. Sa mousse est particulièrement dense et onctueuse. Bière finement pétillante et rafraîchissante, Maltesse, la reine des bières, allie des parfums riches et puissants qui laissent en bouche un goût fruité d’un grand raffinement. Maltesse est une bière de fermentation basse. Son degré d’alcool (7.7% Alc. Vol.) et sa garde longue, en font un produit riche et puissant dont la recette semble avoir traversé les âges. Afin de profiter de toute sa saveur, il est conseillé de la tenir au frais et de la déguster à une température de +/- 6°C dans son verre préalablement rincé et non essuyé. Maltesse est proposée sous deux formats : en bouteille 75 cl (sortie fin mai) et en boîte 50 cl (sortie mi-juin).

Replaced by Maltesse Triple, brewed with a different yeast and hop variety.

Clear redish coppery body, white head. Aroma is caramelly malty with some medicinal and fruity hops. Flavour is strong malt, alcohol, berries and some yeast when warms up. Much alcohol.

750 ml bottle. From France. Courtesy of Brandman.
Clear reddish amber colour with tiny off-white head. Belgian style yeast, fruits, sugar and alcohol in aroma. Flavour is malt, sugary sweetness, mild yeast and mild hops. Sugary fruit juice sweetness. Boring.

14.05.2011. 0,5l Can. Golden yellowcolour with white head. Aroma is malty with nice smooth bitterness. Strong beer with lots of alcohol.

sinte (587) - Udine, ITALY - APR 27, 2011
Bottle 0.75 L. Dark golden body, with a small, fizzy, white head, mostly diminishing with virtually no lacing; low density of medium-sized bubbles. Light malty and hoppy aroma with spicy notes related to alcohol; maybe some hints of honey. Sweet flavour with some bitter notes. Light-to-medium body with a watery texture; flat carbonation; evident alcoholic warming in the finish.

Quack-Duck (9486) - Down South, GERMANY - APR 4, 2011
bottle. Slightly unclear golden colour, large white head. Fruity with hints of honey, shy hopy in the finish.

Wolfbass (1188) - Firenze, ITALY - JAN 20, 2011
Trovata una sera in lattina in un supermercato, pensavo seriamente ad un disastro. Invece si lascia bere ed ha anche un suo carattere...Buon corpo e maltosa.

hiomo (74) - Castellalto, ITALY - SEP 5, 2010
Birra dal colore ambra – oro con schiuma fine e di colore bianco. Aroma di malto miele,caramello e note floreali e speziate . Ne consegue un’ aroma dolce che termina con una sottile amarezza. Nel finale rimane abbastanza in risalto soprattutto la dolcezza del malto con sottili toni di erbe e luppolo.

jaghana (6220) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - AUG 27, 2010
Bottle 75cl at Galeries Gourmandes Strasbourg. A clear yellow beer with very nice head and good lacing, carbonation is high. Smell is very hopy even dry hoping. Aroma is quite sweet, very malty and quite bitter, nice hops bouquet there is definitely dry hoping on this beer. Very difficult to detect that it was done with a lower yeast, finish is a bit abrupt with a spicy hops bitterness. Good beer, good body, pleasant but high in alcohol.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - APR 22, 2010
Corked bottle from Auchan, Marne La Valle, France.
Pours a decent cloudy cheddar orange with a head that settles into what appears to be mold spore colonies atop the brew. Aroma is honey and orange, with a touch of sweet bread and carrot soup. Flavor is a dull, buttery vegetable honey with a finish of light honey biscuit and over-ripened orange. Watery on the tongue. Not bad, but one is sufficient.
