stupre (538) - Nanterre, FRANCE - MAR 25, 2017
33cl bottle. La Pietra à la farine de châtaigne n’a pas vraiment le goût de châtaigne mais elle reste très agréable.

hoppymate (8) - Générac, FRANCE - MAR 17, 2017 does not count
En apparence la Pietra nous révèle une jolie couleur et une mousse qui donne envie cependant au goût la châtaigne est inexistante et l’ alcool domine l’ ensemble

19Oracolo78 (237) - ITALY - MAR 12, 2017
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2017 Birra dal colore ambrato. Schiuma colore bianco sporco, fine e poco persistente. All’olfatto sentori di nocciola e malto tostato. Al palato mediamente corposa con note di malto tostato, castagna e frutta secca. Una birra discreta ma niente di eclatante.

Le Waterloo de la bière … Née en Corse cette bière porte donc le nom bien français de "biera corsa" .. tout comme le napo s’appelait napoleone buonaparte ... Mais chacun fait comme il l’entend, bien entendu (c’est le cas de le dire ..). Bon, vous voulez vraiment que j’explique comment on met de la farine de châtaignes dans la bière pour ne rien en faire, ou vous avez compris que c’est inutile. A noter qu’au nez c’est plutôt un peu de noisettes que l’on sent … Puis c’est du caramel sur du malt pils, en gros .. En corse, cela se dit "accumudata cu a castagna" .. Donc, la castagne quoi !! Mon exemplaire était 16 mois avant sa date, donc bien frais. Heureusement. CONCLUSION : petit lexique ... biera donne bière, pietra donne piètre ..

Bottle. Gold in colour. Roasty malts and caramel. Slight citrus fruit. Definite hint of nuts. Dry finish. OK, but I hoped for more chestnut. (2008)

2.8
Grumbo (4295) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2017
Bottle I brought back from France a while back. Poured clear amber colour with a medium sized off-white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, resin and alcohol. Fairly sweet, medium bitterness. Not especially keen.

Sebilinz (2724) - Linz, AUSTRIA - JAN 7, 2017
Bottle. Amber body with white head. Aroma is malty with some grains. Taste is malty caramel some chestnut maybe. Aftertaste is nice balanced. Nice lager.

Backlog. Synchronizing with notes and Untappd.
A bit of cardboard and honey. Some nut scents though the chestnut is not noticeable. Not bad but nothing to go back for - one time tasting

2.7
Borup (15969) - Albertslund, DENMARK - NOV 5, 2016
50 cl. can. Clear golden colour with a white head. Aroma and flavour of malt, hops, fruit and bitterness.

2.2
Gurthnar (6293) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - OCT 5, 2016
Bottle. Heavily lightstruck in both aroma and flavour, also oxidation. Thin bodied, slightly metallic in the finish. Basically an off flavour exhibition.
