Amber beer (8 % alc. / vol.) refermented in the bottle. A speciality beer brewed over lees in winter using the first malt and hops from the last harvest. Roasted malts give it its characteristic amber hue. Obtained by top fermentation, the "Biere Nouvelle" is characterised by fruity flavours and a good bite. Biere Nouvelle must be served with care (leaving behind the fine yeast sediment) at about 10°C. Available from February while stocks last in 750 ml bottles corked and stamped

A faint hint of vanilla, some spiciness, a lot of grain...the flavors seem hard to quantify. I’m pretty sure I like it, though if I’d known it was French and not Belgian, I wouldn’t have bought it.

danielyabu (1636) - União da Vitória, BRAZIL - JAN 9, 2017
Large rocky creamy white head. Excellent lacing. Mostly lasting. Sparkling hazy average-density amber body. Aroma: heavy toasted malt, caramel, light hoppy, citrus grapefruit, honey, metal. Initial flavor: moderate sweet. Final flavor: moderate sweet light acidic bitter; average duration. Palate: light medium body, dry texture, lively carbonation and light astringent alcoholic finish. saboroso dulçor maltado, caramelado, como previsto nas BJCP; lembra também um pouco de frutas secas no final. Leve acidez (não prevista) equilibra bem o dulçor, juntamente com leves amargor lupulado e leve aquecimento alcoólico que aparecem no final. O leve toque de lúpulo puxa para o caráter herbal (também previsto). Cerveja complexa. O sabor lembra várias nuances, sempre alternando entre dulçor maltado e acidez. Caráter condimentado na segunda taça. 90 s

samogotchi (1) - - AUG 4, 2016 does not count
Bought in bottle, from Carrefour Toulon. Pours Amber with a tight, lagerish head. Smells of apricot, black pepper and liquorice. No masking the booze in the taste, but continues to be a hint of spice and an underlying wheat flavour (almost cous cous). Fairly good, but not exceptional. Great value for 2.80 a large bottle

Apresenta um espuma farta e longa duração. Sua cor é de caramelo. O aroma é doce e é Silvestre. O sabor é apresenta um dulçor presente no início com a presença de caramelo e Lima. Finaliza com um amargor suave que remete a frutas.

Beergaard (335) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 5, 2016
One of the better biere de garde i’ve had and deffinately better than the others i’ve had from Saint Sylvestre. Light in color with a small but longlasting white head. Aroma is pleasantly spicy with a strong and malty backbone. Tastewise it has yeast, fruit, spieces, some booze and once again a strong and caramel like malty backbone. Very well ballanced beer.
