A great beer to have regulary. Nice maltiness and a bit of spice. Finished smooth with a tiny caramel sweetness. A good drink. karsten (240) - odense, DENMARK - AUG 3, 2002
Brown coloured. Sweetish, malty, woody nose and flavour. Full bodied and complex. austinpowers (2828) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 6, 2002
La Choulette Ambree reminded me of a bock beer, instead of a biere de garde. It has a sweet aroma and taste (again, like a demi-bock) and is fairly spicy and hoppy. If you’re looking for a traditional biere de garde, I’d stick with La Bavaisienne instead. Indra (2711) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - FEB 3, 2006
750ml bottle. Light, sweet, sugary aroma, accented by a moderate amount of herbal hops with a noticeable tea leaf character, along with lighter hints of fresh wood and orange. Rosy red-orange color with a lasting, foamy, off-white head. Mildly spicy and bitter to start, seeing an influx of candyish malt sugary sweetness that figures highly into the overall effect, and for the finish a blend of mild berryish fruit and gentle hints of peppery alcohol, caramel, spices and vanilla frosting. Lively yet lightly syrupy on the palate with a medium body. At first, interesting, but the effect seems to wear off somewhat by the end of the bottle. harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - MAY 9, 2006
Amberish brown, with a nice long lasting head. Aroma is somewhat alcoholic and phenolic, a bit of burnt wood, spicy hops and a bit of caramel malt round out the flavor profile with just a hintof bittersweet fruitiness in the finish.

750ml @ Stone Brewing. Very sweet nose. Some spiciness, dark dried fruit. Nice medium amber color. Sweetness is evident with some spiciness. Pretty tasting but a tad too sweet Palidor19 (3188) - Brandon, Florida, USA - DEC 20, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2007 a different sort of beer. real fruity in its overall presence. very thin and smooth with its mouth feel. though it has a strong head the carbonation is rather flat. the taste is toffee with fruit. I like it Borresteijn (7047) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 23, 2009
33cl Bottle from a gift pack. Clear deep amber colour, creamy off white head. Aroma of a thick sweetness, light toasted malts, honey and caramel. Flavour is sweet at first, honey and caramel, very malty, followed by a dry and light spicy bitter finish. Medium bodied, syrupy mouthfeel. Although a bit on the sweet side, a nice offering. Reminded me (especially the nose) of Paulaner Salvator. satan165 (1020) - River Grove, Illinois, USA - AUG 26, 2009
appearance is mostly unclouded ruby, quite striking. head reduces to and remains a film quickly. aroma is lightly crunchy toffee brittle. mouthfeel is totally unexpected, very soft and pillowy. more caramel in taste along with nutty notes not unlike a dopplebock. mephisto (1288) - TAIWAN - AUG 27, 2009
a really tasty brew! it doesn’t look that impressive though: cloudy amber with little white head. but the aroma is fruity with hint of prune. very fruity flavor, sweet but has enough complexity, quite enjoyable.
