Pours an opaque red-brown with dense cream colored head, half inch of which sticks to the end, rings of lace down the glass. Smell: red apple, caramel, buttered brown bread, mild earth and spiciness. Taste: date bread, cherry cola note, dried apricot, toasted grain, peach skin, herbal and earthy. Medium-plus bodied but a bit heavy on the carbonation. Pretty good, though a big step down from the blonde.

Moinettte Brune pours ruby slightly hazy tinted amber to red brown with a 3” thick, persistent cream colored tan foam cap that mounds above the rim of the glass looking very much like Ayers rock. It lasts several minutes leaving a small iceberg in the glass upon finishing while etching the glass with a thick coating of gothic window lace. Fruit, light chocolate, spice and herbal aromas gently rise from the glass, while over the tongue plum to fig flavors precede a light chocolate touch, grain and then a moderate hop accent for balance. It starts lightly sweet and then finishes semi-dry with a light trace of tartness. The taste profile is interesting with slightly more hops in the foam than in the body. It finishes with lingering fig and chocolate flavors tempered by just a touch of bitter. The texture is creamy and juicy with medium high carbonation and a much lighter body than you would expect for such a light beer. Very well balanced and composed.

Purchased at the LCBO $3.30 0ml bottle. Served at 6deg C in a tulip glass

A- Very good. Opens well, pours a nice head that dissipates to a film within a minute Dark amber color

S- Roasted malt and caramel. Super high alcohol scent

T- Hot even though its' only 8.5%. Caramel galore. Sweet. Carbonated well.

M- Very good. Smooth and dry

O- Very good. Would like to see how this one mellows with age.

Food Pairing
