nigos (631) - Ipswich, Suffolk, - DEC 15, 2007
darkish amber hue with a decent head. Malty caramel like nose. Resonable flavour with not much to note a few malty tones and a bitter finish not much else to note.

labeerinthum (833) - Milano, ITALY - JUN 24, 2017
Bottiglia. Il gusto al naso trova il fruttato con molto riferimento alla castagna. L’intensità olfattiva è elevata e la persistenza olfattiva è apprezzabile. Il cappello di schiuma ha una discreta resistenza. La grandezza delle bollicine è fine. La carbonazione è media. La consistenza del liquido è limpida con bollicine di grandezza medio-fine. La carbonazione è abbondante, vivace, persistente ed insistita. Il colore è ambrato. Il corpo è strutturato. Il dolce è medio. L’amaro è medio. L’intensità gustativa è elevata e buona. Il gusto è piacevole. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono di pronta beva. Il finale è lungo e dissetante. Il retrogusto è intenso. L’aroma in bocca riporta sentori di caramello, miele, cereali, frutta, castagna e marron glacé.

Déception je dois l’admettre, on attend la chatâigne qui reste absente. Légère et trop peur d’arômes

McSherman (670) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAY 23, 2017
Farbe: dunkles Kupfer. Wenig beständiger weißer Schaum. Geruch malzig süß, leicht nussig. Geschmack: süßlich malzig, nussig. Etwas bitter, ohne ausgeprägte Hopfenaromen. Gar nicht schlecht.

I drank this bottle at Lutry beach with a beautiful landscape and enjoying the sun without wind. In my own opinion, for an industrial beer, it is not the worst one and better than one heineken, for exemple. Firstly, I found the color pleasant for the eyes: copper like one English ale, thin and white head, normal carbonation. The taste is really sweet but it is acceptable, touch of chestnut that is present and giving this sweetness but it is not that strong, malty, bready, few hop, well balanced. It is not the king of beers that I could drink thousands times but it is ok.

elosop (403) - SWEDEN - APR 18, 2017
Mörkt halmgul med tunt vitt skum. Doftar lite hö och halm. Smaken medelfyllig, lite sötmalt. Eftersmaken hyggligt lång, lite söt och besk, men med en metallisk bismak. OK törstsläckare.

2.4
Tometclo (285) - Paris, FRANCE - APR 9, 2017
Petit col de mousse blanche, couleur ambrée, arôme céréales, absence totale de la châtaigne, déception pour cette bière attirante par l’étiquette. 33 Cl Monoprix

Bière légèrement ambrée, plutot classique, la chataigne reste un mystère, asssez correcte.

2.8
ForlornHope (513) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2017
Bottle from a French Supermarket multipack. Brilliant amber appearance with a white head. Not sure about the aroma - sweet and a hint of chemicals. Sweet start with some balancing bitterness. The taste is better than the aroma - fruity and with caramel notes, but a harsh bitterness comes through. Smooth mouthfeel. Wouldn’t bother with another.

3.3
stupre (328) - 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.

1.7
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
