3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Really enjoyed this one. Pours a beautiful rich copper with a clean white head. Nose was grassy with caramel, toasted notes with a light booziness, perhaps of vodka? Flavor is a bubbly apple, malt and toffee, toasted. Great light-medium body. Definitely enjoyable for me.

Smells of plums and dried fruit. Orange amber with off white head. Weird beer. Hard to define flavor. More of a textural experience. Dry like red wine with a crisp bitterness. Becomes tart with a lemon flavor on the tip of the tongue as it sits.

This is a boring beer. Malty is the only description I can give it. The treat is not adding much complexity and there is not much hops character. I will support local brewers when I can, but these guys need to bring more to the table.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle:   Reddish hued amber, dirty, hazy, moderate foamy sandy head, light lacing.   Rustic nose, barnish, musty, a little bit of earthiness with a dull floral background.   Bright musty/barnish notes, a little earthy on the tongue.   Fairly respectable.   The only thing I dont care for is that both the 750ml and 330ml that I opened tended to gush right out of the bottle.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Bright earthy finish, slight sweetness, barnish and musty.   A bit more exciting than the majority of other Biere de Gardes I have had, especially French ones.   Thanks Bill!

Very stable thick head. Beautiful unfiltered amber. Nose of Belgium yeast dried fruit an a bit I banana and cinnamon. wonderful rich carbonation with a decent creamy feel. Alight stale metallic aftertaste. Technically a wonderful beer. But not something I want every night.

Deep shiny copper in color like a new penny. Faintly spicy aroma of cinnamon and dried fruits. Very fizzy on the palate. Clean toasted malty flavors upfront followed by a nice spicy Belgian yeast note. Overall, decent...

It pours amber with a nice brown head. I smell fruits, yeast, and caramel. Taste is spice, yeast, caramel and it has a great crisp dry finish. Texas Ale!! Very good.
