Yesterday's post wiped out my supply of reviews from Troegs so we're now switching gears and heading across the pond to France.
Brasserie La Choulette Ambree is a biere de
garde--a traditional French ale--brewed in France. It pours a ruby-hued brown ale with a light tan head. It smells of earthy honey, marmalade and pepper. The flavor is on the sweeter side with notes of caramel apples. It has a bite that is
peppery at the finish. The mouthfeel is full and the finish is refreshing.
This biere de garde is definitely at the bolder, fuller end of the spectrum and it actually reminds me of an abbey ale.
Style: Biere de garde
