A life just as ordinary

Just like you, but different

Herevana – Mont Blanc – La Rousse

Mont Blanc La Rousse,  I’m always up for new, and this is new for me, not the brewer, but from this brewer in a style that I really like. A Red Ale. And you know that I’m a chaser of taste and the different. Also Fine-O-Wine in Milford is a magnificence of a shop.

Brasserie du Mont Blanc make the Mont Blanc La Rousse in 🇫🇷 La Motte Servolex, France as a Red Ale / International Amber Ale  with an ABV of  6.5% making this 3.85 standard drinks in NZ.

Pop top bottle with a crown top, it’s all of everything, holing back a lovely mmmalty aroma when opened.

That is a dead set pretty beer, orange, red, golden all those hues and colours, with a glorious head of depth and firmness that is sitting belligerent on top. Lots of that Malt aroma in the glass too.

There’s an earthiness to the bitterness in this that is a bit unexpected but it seems to move more towards a toffee malty note as you contemplate it, The lingering note is mostly toffee for me.

This is quite bold and upfront in what it is, the big malt thud note shows no sign of retreat or surrender, but pushing through makes this quite rewarding.

It is a qua a nice beer, strong, bold and assured of itself, and it is pretty good, and it’s very tasty. But.

There isn’t a lot of nuance or delicate about the profile in this, you get the upfront bitterness and the big malt note and then after that you’re struggling for anything that adds sweetness, or a little kick of fruit sweet or sour. A big monotone beer.

I’m listening to Apocalypse by Bill Callahan for no reason than the Song “America” has been an earworm recently. It’s in the style that is Lo-fi musicUnderground musicAlternative countryAlternative/Indie

The Pdubyah-o-meter rates this as 8 on the arbitrary number scale. There’s no reason not to try this beer, you should feel free to measure it against local beers or similar beers to decide if it is your thing.

This beer is brewed with pure water from our exclusive water catchment on the slopes of Mont Blanc, and from three different malts : wheat, barley and oat. We wanted a beer that has a full body and malty taste but with a refreshing kick to it. We used a combination of warm fermentation and delicate spices like Hibiscus to give it its ruby colour and full taste with a hint of fruity notes. The result is a very complex yet very balanced amber beer that will blow you away!

Herevana beers are those I drink at home, I’m not at some beer festival, like, for instance, Beervana, but am just in my kitchen, usually, dining room table, sometimes, or outside, occasionally, where I can take an average picture and write in real time about the beer that I’ve invested in, both in a monetary and emotional way.
