This beer is the last creation of the Mont Blanc brewery. It is brewed with our pure water from our exclusive water catchment on the slopes of Mont Blanc, and from three differents malts : wheat, barley and oat. We wanted a beer that associates a full body malty taste but still a refreshing kick to it. We used a combination of top fermentation and delicate spices like Hibiscus to give it its ruby color and full taste with a hint of fruity notes. The result is a very complex yet very balanced amber beer that will blow you away! Formerly 7.2%

I bought this bottle at the Léman Center and I drank it with friends yesterday at Lausanne. It is not a bad amber beer but there is missing something. The body is red-orange, average carbonation, white and brown foam. The taste is malty, sweet, small touch of plum, caramel but the final note is a bit metalic and watery, drinkable.

Flaska från SB. Mahognybrun, djupröd med beigevitt skum. Söt, maltig doft av muscovadosocker, kola, en del torkad frukt. Något större kropp, något torr. Kola, torkad frukt, kakao, mörkt socker och något brödig i smaken. Väldig lik deras Brassin d’Hiver aux Marrons, men liksom mindre i det mesta.

Très aqueuse, peu de goût. Sinon, pas de fausse note, un fond caramélisé, re-amerisé histoire de redonner du goût.

Robe ambrée et limpide. La mousse ne tient Pas. Arômes fumés, caramel et malt. Goût fumé et caramel,légères notes d’agrumes. Seul le fumé reste en bouche. Bof, buvable mais sans plus. n°1 aux World beer Awards non mérité.

Bière ambrée presque rouge. Très maltée elle laisse découvrir un goût sucré et une touche d’acidité. Bière automnale

Bottle shared at home. Clear amber with short lasting light beige head. Red apple, light sugary malts, dried fruits. Quite sweet and fruity with a soft herbal-candy like finish. Under medium sweet and light bitter. Medium bodied with slick feel and a bit fizzy carbonation.
