Enjoyed on tap at Restaurant Le Fripon in Montreal, Quebec.

Amber in color, strong and full-bodied with a pleasant mouthfeel. I was worried that the rather malty aroma would translate into the flavor, but was pleasantly surprised to find that it was not too sweet. Quite drinkable.

A: Poured from the bottle into a pint glass. Body is chestnut-amber with a small off-white head that settles quickly.

S: Sweet, caramel malt. Corn syrup? A touch of husky grain.

T: Caramel malt and toffee, with a bit of wet cardboard and minerally hop bitterness that tries to offset the malt but fails. Lingering sweetness on the aftertaste.

M: Light-to-medium in heft, feels a bit thin/watery at times. Carbonation is active and fizzy, but gentle and thus not offensive.

O: OK. Nothing special.

Had this on tap at the Irish Embassy in Montreal. This was labeled as their house amber, but the bartender told me it was the Belle Gueule. Pours a bright red colour with very thin off-white head. Head dissipates fairly quickly with little lacing. Smells incredibly malty and sweet, caramel and quite nutty. Sweet flavour, almost no bitterness. Carbonation is quite high, I'd prefer a bit smoother. A nice enough amber.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

341ml bottle poured into a pint glass

Appearance - pours a clear copper with a fair size foamy off-white head. There is lots of carbonation and there is a medium amount of lacing left on the glass. Doesn't really look all that 'red' for a red beer.

Smell - has a dry smell, slight hops and bread notes

Taste & Mouth - Low to average amount of carbonation in the mouth. Starts off somewhat dry and then finishes with a brown sugar like sweetness. It actually has a nice balance of taste.. perhaps a little too watery though.

Drink - probably my favorite of the Belle Guelle family. But even with that being said, there are much better beers out there.

This is a very subdued, bland beer.

Pours clear amber with a moderate head that settles to a partial film. Sweet caramel malts, some hops. Thin mouthfeel with a slightly unpleasant metallic finish. Overall, simply an average beer at best, but with a brittle edge that makes it less than drinkable.

From notes.

Poured mahogany-brown with very minimal bubbly head that dissipated quickly leaving faint lacing on the glass. The colour is really nice, but the head was underwhelming. At least there's some lacing.

Smells malty, maybe a bit sweet. Very average.

Taste is pretty nice. Malty with some sourness, a faint sweetness. Hey...nutty. And bitter afters. It's good beer. I like it.

Mouthfeel is quite reasonable; moderate carbonation and medium-bodied.

This is quite drinkable. It's a bit sticky, but not so much as to make it unpleasant.

This is a pretty good beer. I'd take this over the Keith's Red Amber I had earlier any day.

bouteille brune de 341ml.

bière de belle couleur cuivrée, avec une mousse blanche disparce, nez très malté avec un peu de caramel, en bouche la bière offre une palette fraîche, du malt, un léger goût de caramel. elle se termine sur une finale équilibrée avec une belle amertume. bonne bière.
