33cl bottle, deep golden color, medium white head, malt aroma with roasted notes (and something that I don’t recognize, probably the chestnuts aroma), balanced flavor with hints of hops, medium/light body, clean finish, some hops aftertaste OleR (4801) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 6, 2009

’s. Dense, foamy white head. Bright copper colored body. Low aroma level, some floral/herbal notes and a faint whiff of grainy malts. Taste is light sour-sweet, light to moderat malty, with a faint smoke tone. Oily texture. Light to medium body. Short, sourish ending. Drinkable, but a pretty dull one, and no flavoring from the chestnuts was detected.
Bottle. Pours on the orange side of gold with thin whitish head. The aroma is Honey Nut Cheerios and skunky grain. The flavor is obvious chestnut with seltzer and stale grain. Dish soap finish. Not very good. cheeta (1181) - Langå, DENMARK - AUG 18, 2009
Moderate malty aroma. Huge, frothy , white head. Good lacing. Mostly lasting longevity. Clear, orange body. Moderate sweet flavor. Medium palate. Leighton (22812) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2009
Sampled at New Beer Distributors in NYC. Poured a warm amber hue with an easygoing white head. Smelled malty. At first tasted sweet with strong notes of roasted malts and caramel, then gave way to a mild smoky taste. Interesting and pretty good.

Light amber colour, smokey malt aroma. Taste is a very different taste. Malt, smoke and nut. Too bad I loathe the taste of smoke. I really won’t do this one again. Had to choke this down. stouby (4859) - Holbæk, DENMARK - AUG 13, 2009
Bottle at L’Education Nationale.
Copper with a white head. Aroma moderate malty (caramel, smoke, chestnut notes), light hoppy. Flavor moderate sweet, light bitter. Light body. Very fine chestnut beer from France/Corsica. mnurda (1305) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 4, 2009
Bottled sample via MLCC. Surprisingly good for how low the rating was. Went down very nicely. bedainedebiere (544) - Terrebonne, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 27, 2009
Bottle. With the ratings it got, I wasn’t expecting much, but it revealed to be quite enjoyable, quite malty, with notes of fruits and discreet sweetness. There are some notes of chestnuts if your brain is willing to agree; it is very subtle... Hop bitterness interestingly present. If you’re afraid of French beers because of your disastrous experience with a 1664 Kronenbourg, this might help you a little to remove a negative prejudice. Quite over the decent mark.

Bottle. Nothing special, have some different spices. Good beer for the summer.
