COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

2011 edition. Pours clear darkish golden with a big, frothy, white head. Good lacings. Aroma has sweet malts, apricot, caramel, wine gums, pear. Mild pineapple. Highish carbonation, creamy and full. Flavour is lovely malty with a tartish twang to it. Doughy, light biscuity, citrus, some hay and grass. Lingering mild bitter and creamy finish. Nice.

rejtable (2671) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 2, 2012
2011 Bottle at 10%. Pours an orange-red with a foamy heady. Great lacing. Up front is grassy with a small hint of background apricots. Back is sweet. Foamy in the mouth due to solid carbonation. Lovely beer. Alcohol is very well hidden.

3.6
Marheb (5750) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 30, 2012
*(Grande réserve 10%): Miel fruité épuisé en arôme avec une touche de pomme. En bouche c’est une corpulence moyenne qui transporte les esters de levure assez discrète. L’alcool est superbement camouflé mais c’est trop inoffensif à mon goût.

3.8
Gethinbeer (2452) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - JAN 26, 2012
Copper colour with a frothy white head and lace. Lively to medium carbonation. Fruity, spice malt flavour. sharp tangy finish with toffee notes in the finish.
