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.

Amber style beer with a good head. Lack of spice or aftertaste. A bit too bland for my liking... This is an everyday beer but in no way is it a session beer. It seems like the Belle-Gueule have lost some ground in the past few year or maybe it is my beer taste that have evolved.

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.

Copper/red in color with a really small head. Smell of caramel, some sweet malts and some grains too. Subtle taste of caramel and sweet malts, not that much flavors though. Nice carbonation in the mouth.

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.
