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%

Not impressed. Good body, nice color of drinks. But the taste is very simple, a little bitter, a little sweetness. Weak finish.

Alengrin (4895) - BELGIUM - JAN 28, 2015
French amber beer from a 75 cl bottle, apparently brewed in the French Alps and in that sense far removed from the traditional bière de garde region. Sticky, snow white, moussy and very stable head, colour lightly hazy amber. Nutty malts, dried fruits, biscuit, walnuts, apricot, hints of caramel; restrained sweetness, bit metallic, malty with slight yeastiness and medium herbal hoppiness in the finish. Quite okay. Big thanks to Marie for bringing me this bottle all the way from the Mont Blanc region!

Thanks to Alengrin. 750 ml. bottle sampled @ “Tim needs to get rid of his ticks” Tasting. Enjoyed together with tderoeck, Benzai & Alengrin. Clear red amber, little head. Metallic nose, herbs, iron, caramel syrup. Taste is caramel, thin fizzy, lightly metallic, light herbs, lightly fruity. Body is a bit fizzy & thin. Okay for what it is but it certainly didn’t blow me away as promised by the commercial description.

Sampled from bottle (thanks to Alengrin) @ Tim needs to get rid of his ticks tasting. Clear rusty orange color, medium sized white to off-white head. Smell and taste malts, lightly sugar, lightly caramel. Hard to describe. Average to medium body and carbonation. Ok beer.

Big metallic taint in this beer, so much so that might be a drain pour if it doesn’t blow off. I hope the water from Mt Blanc is cleaner than this....
