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

WheatKing (1338) - Phnom Penh, - OCT 13, 2012
10%. Very similar to a Golden Belgian Strong, with less esters and more roastiness. Similarly to a barleywine it took me a few sips to really get used to this, the alcohol overpowers at first. Golden blonde colour, fluffy head even many hours after I opened it (drank it slowly throughout the day), very high carbonation. Some spicy wood in there. Yerp.

Gyllengul mot orange med ett störe gulvitt skum. Doft av malt, hö, karamell och lätta kryddiga jästtoner. I smaken tillkommer en viss alkoholsötma.

gripweed57 (2804) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - AUG 13, 2017
From old tasting notes. Brilliant orange gold color topped by a huge rocky beige head. Sharp, assertive malt nose. Sweet, winey malt flavor has a complex fruity character. Dryish champagne-like finish is long and tasty. Very nice indeed.

Tognetta (951) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - MAY 19, 2017
Ambar quase translúcida, espuma branca de boa formação e bastante aderência. Aroma de caramelo/malte com álcool aparente, um quê de frutas bastante maduras. Paladar de dulçor prevalecente, leve amargor lupulado. Médio corpo e carbonatação. Final de média persistência sempre puxando para caramelo e um leve toque amadeirado.

Bottle pours cloudy copper with off white head, aroma is of spices and cloves. Active mouthfeel with caramel biscuit notes, spice, and a sweet hay finish.

OminouSC2 (845) - Mora, SWEDEN - APR 10, 2017
Golden color, large beige head. Crisp aromas of citrus, tropical fruits, yeast and some alcohol. Fresh taste of citrus, floral hops, bananas and slight alcohol. Solid.

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.

arsol (1240) - NORWAY - JAN 21, 2017
Klar orange farge med høyt hvitt skum. Lukter gjær og litt syrlige epler. Søtlig maltsmak. Kort bitter avslutning.

danielyabu (1698) - 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
