Launched in 2003, this exquisite brew has already picked up a Medialle D’Or and is fast becoming the most popular beer in its region. Available throughout Seine et Marne and a few outlets in Paris, it is an excellent accompaniment to meat, poultry and stromng cheese. Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 4, 2004
This was such a neat beer to be able to try. I sampled this on the back of a bus traveling from Fontainbleau, France to Dijon, France. I bought the beer at a small wine shop in central Fontainbleau and even got a free glass with the brew. Courpalay, where the beer is brewed, is a small village Northeast of Fontainbleau.
Nose is distant, but showcases faint notes of brown sugar, cherries, strawberries and plums.
There is a dryness throughout the entire palate with lovely notes of cherries, oak, peppers, grapes and plums. Simply fantastic. thebeertourist (5189) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 25, 2010
Bottle from Cave à Bulles. The cork went into the ceiling, and on top of the copper-coloured beer is a nice, sticky, yellowish head. At first I thought chocolate aroma, but it is actually more earthy, even a bit sour fruit. Chocolate remains in the mouth, with hints of sour fruit and dusty earthiness. Very "rural" if there exists a taste term like that. Original and interesting. RichardGretton (4785) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2012
Bottle. Cloudy browny coloured beer with a very strong head. The aroma is mildly malty and roasted, and the flavour is very well roasted with a fortified feel and hints of spice. Overall a very nice malty beer.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Yoav’s place. Thanks Yoav. Cloudy-opaque muddy brown colour with a dissolving frothy cream-coloured head. Earthy, grass and spices aroma, Belgian ale style taste, yeasty, sweetish and good. Full body, carbonated, sweet finish.

Honnetement, Qui s attends à boire une bonne biere provenant du 77?
Et pourtant une bonne trouvaille bien goulayante de dessous les fagots! notalush (5922) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - OCT 19, 2008
Thanks to JoeMcPhee for sharing - hazy amber beer - moderate lace - somewhat doughy aroma, with a little bit of nutmeg, cinnamon, and other wintery spices, as well as some cherry and raisin - the flavor is similar - doughy up front, then some warming spicy character - some raisin, plum and quite a bit of caramel - a tiny bit of diacetyl, but it doesn’t distract - not bad at all.

Stormy bubbles in an amber-brown muddy body, lots of fluffy beige head on top. Aroma is barley, chocolate, bread. Taste is a soft mix of malts and lots of alcohol on the back end, sour and dry finish. A really good bière de garde, but not the best. Lubiere (14151) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 30, 2010
A hazed dark amber to brown ale with a thick moka head, bottle gushed a bit, little floaties. A very nice aroma of fruit esters, caramel sugars, smooth alcohol, treacle. In mouth, a very belgian interpretation, with loads of caramel malt, fruity esters, burned nuts, herbal notes, smooth and pleasant. 750 ml from Cave a Bulles, bought in April 2010.
