Beer List -

Any tasting notes that appear against the beers are the personal opinions of the authors. If the authors disagree on any aspect then their initials appear before their individual opinion.

Cuvée de l'Ecureuil

Darbyste - 5.8% alc/vol

Comments - First brewed 1990. Described by the brewery as a fruity white beer. Includes fig juice in the ingredients.
Tasting Notes - Unusual but characterful beer, light in colour it gives the impression of being a dark beer. It is gently grainy with a figgy fruitiness, starts sweet, develops a hint of sourness and then becomes gently bitter.

La Moneuse Spéciale Noël - 8% alc/vol

Tasting Notes - Not as dark as you would expect, it starts off almost refreshing and summery but gives way to a more pronounced winter quality. Warming with a bitter hoppy kick and a touch of tart citric.

La Moneuse - 8% alc/vol

Tasting Notes - The complexity of the aroma isn't delivered by the taste which is of strong hops and tangy bitterness lifted by some fruit and sharp lemon.

Saison D'Epeautre - 6% alc/vol

Comments - Uses pilsener malt and spelt (a close relative of wheat).
Tasting Notes - Distinctive but disappointing beer with texture dominant over the wishy-washy taste until the bitterness in the finish takes over.
