It pours a hazy amber color with a off white almost tannish head. It has a rich, malty, aroma that features bread, dark fruits, toffee, and alcohol. It has a malty rich taste of bread, toffee, a bit of roast, spices, and alcohol. It has a heavy feel to it with a slightly sweet, the bitter aftertaste with alcohol warming.

Zlotta (3811) - Hagen / Düsseldorf, GERMANY - MAR 9, 2016
0.33 l bottle from ’Saveur Bière’, best before june 2017. Clear, amber with a thin, frothy, slowly diminishing, tan to white head. Faint, sweetish-malty, minimally fruity aroma of caramel, nuts, rock candy, overripe banana and some raisins. Sweetish-malty, minimally fruity taste of caramel, nuts, rock candy and some raisins, followed by a short, slightly bitter, yeasty and slightly warming finish. Medium body, slightly creamy and effervescent mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Decent, not very special.

Idiosynkrasie (7962) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 7, 2016
330ml bottle. Clear, dark amber colour with average, thick, fairly lasting and lacing, white head. Fruity aroma delivers a plethora of red and blue berry notes, additional notes of sweet and sour cherries as well as a touch of plum. Taste is moderately sweet, slightly sugary, fruity, notes of cherry, hints of plum, all with a minimally artificial jelly bear touch; leafy overtones in the finish. Unsatisfying discrepancy between aroma and taste.

Thank you Mathieu87 & PriorL! 330 ml. bottle sampled @ “Mathieu’s house cooling party”. BBF 03.03.2015. GUSHER. Dark amber with no head. Nose is spoiled bread & massive oxidation, stale bread & big wet cardboard, raisin,… Taste is hugely oxidized, old cardboard, wet cardboard, raisin, sugar, old butterscotch candy, touch watery, toffee,… Body is guar, stale bread & cardboard. Wet cardboard & other oxidation notes are excessive, totally dominating. Not liking it, this one didn’t keep unfortunately despite the style.

75 cl [email protected] in footed [email protected] 9 degrees C. Pours almost clear dark amber with medium tan head with ok retention and little lacing. Malty aroma with a hint of yeast, caramel and spices. Mouthfilling taste on the sweet, malty and bready side. Medium body with average carbonation. Much more pleasant than any other ambree I have had for years. Actually enjoyed this one!

12.09.14 au Hendrix Orléans. Belle couleur ambre claire, arôme de fruits confits.

walrussell (192) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 29, 2015
(Kind of like a dubbel with less "Belgian" yeast character) Hazy copper. Smells like toffee, cereal, and a little metal. Just off-dry, low bitterness, a little sour at the end. Tastes like toffee, cereal, a tiny bit of licorice and grass. Medium body with lower carbonation and not much head. No ash character, no alcohol. Super smooth but very flavorful. Malt-forward with medium yeast character but not boring, too sweet, or unbalanced. Delicious.

Gurthnar (6197) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUL 23, 2015
Bottle. Clear amber colour. Quite toasty malty character, also decent sweetness. Then earthy grassy hops, some alcohol, lightly spicy. Quite good.
