French term or phrase: Cidre ambré - Bière ambrée
No context really, just a list of food and drink-related items.

English translation:amber scented cider, beer
Explanation:
I found this only in perfumed type contexts, not in conjunction with beers. there are amber beers, ciders and ales however so the past participle here is probably an adjective meant to convey a scent or process. Go to jungle jim's beer list:http://hometown.aol.com/brickskeller/myhomepage. It could be as simple as amber cider & amber beer

Thanks for this - I'm not convinced that the beer/cider are actually amber-flavoured - maybe just amber-coloured. However, the beer list site had many instances of amber beer/ale.

Explanation:
cidre ambré : exists. There are quite a few web references to it. It is essentially used to describe the colour, orangey-gold, not a scent or a flavour.

bière ambrée : again this temr is used. See webrefs below.
