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

Pours a clear amber color with a big, lingering white head. The aroma is funky and somewhat musty, with touches of hops, fruit, and malts. Medium body with high carbonation, the flavor malty and peppery with a touch of apples. Highly drinkable and very delicious, this is probably the best French beer I have had.

Bottle: Poured a straw color with a nice amount of head. The aroma was grass, mustiness, and spice. The flavor was smooth, slight apple, slight pear, grass, funk, and yeast. Overall, a really nice tasty beer I wouldn’t hesitate to order again.

Édition 2010 : bière cristalline couleur d’ambre léger coiffée d’un ample col blanc laissant une large dentelle au verre. Des arômes remplis d’esters fruités, d’alcool avec une trace de muscade. Peu amère avec un peu de sucre résiduel. Bière généreuse, à la texture lisse et à l’effervescence douce. Elle se termine assez rapidement sur un filet d’alcool et des arômes légers.

lachesis (757) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - JUN 19, 2005
Very nice warm golden-blond beer with fluffy snow white head. Great malty aroma with a refreshing thouch of grass, citrus, flowers and some fruits. Also some sweetness of caramel malts and buttercakes. The taste is malty, light fruity and has a refreshing carbonation with touches of fresh herbs some mint and lemongrass. It ends with a nice fruity bitterness of hops.

UPDATED: JUN 19, 2015 Från år 2015. Lättsam och drickvänlig i linje med klassen. Ska jag säga något kritiskt så slår alkoholen igenom lite för mycket inledningsvis.

herbjones (742) - Orange, California, USA - FEB 7, 2004
Straw colored brew. Medium/light body. Good flavor. Fruity nose with peaches and apricots coming out. Malty with a fruity character. Yeasty and subtley spicy.

You can certainly tell that this beer was made ihn France because the aroma and flavor is reminescent of a red wine that is very rich in flavor. I problalbly make this rating because this is the first sampling of this style.
