3.2/5  rDev n/a
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

750ml bottle bought from Galeries Lafayette, Paris March 2006

Poured a nice deep golden rusty colour.. Creamy head poured nice and thick then faded fairly quickly to thin layer... Barely any carbonation... some light sticky lacing...

Aroma - Lightly toasted malts, some toffee sweetness, nice spiciness - nutmeg and pepper, some light tobacco smokiness, spicy fruits (figs, apples), very earthy / woody, light spicy hop bitterness, grassy, some breadiness...

Taste – Lightly toasted biscuity malts, light caramel / toffee sweetness, some honey notes, definite nutmeg, yeasty notes, nutty / woody, light watery fruits (figs, pears, some grapefruits), spicy hops, some faint smokey notes, sulphur..

M&D - Pretty smooth with some sharpness after.... light body... quite drinkable although the spicy / sulphur notes become a bit too much near the end...

Overall - A pretty average brew... maybe worth a try but i would stick with a 330ml bottle rather than a 750ml...

This beer is made with buckwheat.
The colour is a dark ruby, almost vinous. A little too dark for an ambrée. Medium compact head, with some bubble. Medium persistence.
The smell is malty and caramel, then white flowers, hay, redcurrant, vanilla. Points of toasted. Even some hints of coffee, and maybe some toasted hazelnut. Ripe apricot? The dark notes become more evident while the beer is warming.
At the taste again notes of coffe, lightly liquer-like. Ripe fruit, grapes, raisins. The taste is light, almost thin.
Medium body. In the aftertaste coffee again, plums. But it slips away quickly.
