Carrefour Bière Bio

Carrefour Bière Bio (6%): an organic strong amber ale from Northern France. This is a new beer offered by the French hypermarket chain Carrefour. Brewed in the mecca of French beer (Pas de Calais region, near the Belgium border), it's also sold as "Vieux Lille Ambrée".

  • Pours an orange-carrot amber liquid.
  • Smells fruity.
  • Awesome complex flavor with hints of orange, apricot, dry fruits, nuts, licorice, anise.
  • Aftertaste is very fruity and agreeable.
  • Good buzz.
  • Easy to drink and refreshing.
  • Bottle is a bit boring?

Verdict: this is a gem!
