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

Bottle @ Danish Summer Gathering, Ulfborg 2011. Vintage 2011 Bottle, Pours a lovely golden/amber color with a thin white head.Malty and fruity aroma. Flavour of sweet malt, caramel, lots of fruit, flowers, a bit alcoholic finish. Not bad but could easily be more complex and balanced.

3.2
caesar (7398) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 5, 2005
Slightly hazy amber color, short off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt, some hops. Taste is quite bitter, bit fruity, some malt and grain. Alcohol is well hidden. However, nothing special about this one.

3.2
rsmeds (228) - Turku, FINLAND - JAN 29, 2006
Bottle. Pours a hazy copper orange, with a small white head. Dry, fruity aroma with a musty apple character. The apples return in the dry, somewhat alcoholic flavor. Very much like calvados, in fact! Unfortunately, it’s a wee bit watery, and has an annoyingly bubbly, carbonated mouthfeel. Quite original nevertheless.

GregClow (3402) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 27, 2006
Bottle shared with blankboy, HogTownHarry, jerc, tupalev & mds - courtesy of HogTownHarry. Light orange with a large white head. Aroma is dry, yeasty, a bit funky. Flavour is - well, kind of boring. A bit of spice, a bit of yeast, a bit of fruit - it’s nice enough, but very subdued. At least it hides that 8% very well...

3.2
mds (2256) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 4, 2006
Bottle. Shaded amber-orange body with a large frothy white head. The aroma is mostly of bread and yeast. Prickly carbonation with bready malt accents and little interesting flavour. Mostly sweet and modest.

Bottle @ Decemberfest. Fine light haze, medium carbonation with very large creamy top. (3+) Light, continental hop aroma, saaz like hops, gentle green bitters followed by sweet malt. Strong font, slightly sour in character, creamy, butter like middle. Light semi0dry alcoholic finish. Nose was cleaner than flavours. (6+)
