Style: Bière de Garde
Format: 330ml Bottle
Named after a saint and brewed in the tradition of the monks of Wissembourg, Alsace, this beer pours a clear, deep golden colour with a fluffy head that retains well.
The aroma is quite beguiling and very complex: look for a moderately sweet maltiness overlaid by a grassy hop quality, hay and light honey.
On the palate, a residual honey-like sweetness is apparent amidst the caramel-like and somewhat bready malt flavours, along with notes of stone fruits.
WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
I must say after reading a few on-line reviews of this beer, I wasn't expecting too much . Maybe that's why I enjoyed this beer so much. Approachable, balanced, almost sessionable if it wasn't 6.8%. Tidy drop and very much enjoyed .
Different taste, not unpleasant but a little heavy. At 1.8 standard drinks you need to take them slowly.
