3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
One of the many Ardennes beers from Bouillon, with very thick, moussy, creamy, firm, yellowish white head, colour darkish amber, cloudy. Aroma of mango, kiwi, pear, walnuts, coriander, liquorice, tarragon, floral hops, orange peel, lemon zest, soap, gingerbread, wet hay. Neutral onset, subdued fruitiness, medium carbo, quick lemony acidity (probably due to mild infection, as I’ve often encountered with this brewery), yeasty, caramelly and nutty malts, mild hop bitterish finish.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Average malt aroma, bit grainy. Light hops, some bubble gum, honey, apple, and yeasty. Light cloudy yellow-amber body with creamy white lacing head. Medium watery body with soft carbonation. LIght sweetness to start, some acidity, and moderate bitterness. Overall, rather watery. Not bad, but I don’t see how they can call it an ambrée - definitely more of a blonde. Maybe they mixed up the labels.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is an ambrée beer that is blond. Ok, a bit darker blond but still blond. It is clear with a big white head. The aroma is weak with hints of flowers and yeast. For such a big head I did not expect a flat beer. But this is the case. The taste is light bitter, dry and chalky. The finish is dry. Quite an ok beer.
