COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Après le succès de la Bracine de Printemps et son houblonnage puissant, nous souhaitions développer une nouvelle gamme de bières de spécialité, encore plus ancrée dans la tradition brassicole. En effet le houblon était très largement utilisé dans les bières de nos ancêtres essentiellement parce qu’il en assurait la conservation. anosteke est donc une bière résolument houblonnée lui conférant ainsi une amertume et une longueur en bouche incomparables. De plus notre anosteke est la première bière française dont les émissions de CO2 liées à sa fabrication et son transport sont compensées (cf www.actioncarbone.org). anosteke = traduction phonétique de « tot anoste keer », expression de chez nous signifiant « à la prochaine »

laiti (6426) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 28, 2014
75 cl bottle @ PBF Ⅸ, BBE 01/2015
Aroma is fruity and soapy with apricot and grassy. Somewhat foamy palate. Flavour has grassy hops, apricot, some citrus and hints of apricot. Also some herbal bitterness. Hides the ABV well. A hoppy belgian blonde.

vyvvy (4470) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Pours cloudy orange with a white head. The aroma has cellar must, cobwebs, pale light toasty malt, cotton candy and granola. It is medium / full bodied with lots of semi-soft carbonation. The flavor begins with tartness, mustiness, lemon and astringency. The finish has some spice and sourness. Nice, but not what I expected for something labeled as a Bier de garde.

thegreenrooster (3399) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 25, 2014
Pour is a cloudy blonde with a average white head. Aroma is fruity, yeasty and clove. Flavor is peach fruitiness, some hefe-like clove and banana and hay malt with a bit of sugar thrown in. Finish is dry but you can get a nice bit of hop resin left over. Pretty solid beer, my bottle says Biere de Garde but I agree this is more of a Belgian blonde.

jcr (2263) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUN 24, 2014
Bottle. Clear gold with a fizzy white head, slowly diminishing. Aroma of fruit, toasted grain, banana, bubble gum and pepper. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Phenol spicy tastes. Lingering bitterness. A bit of a disconnect between the yeast and the hops.

jgb9348 (4943) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 2, 2014
Caution: This exploded upon opening with no extra shaking/movement at only a month or so old. Hazy golden coloured body with an orange glow and a thin, white head. The bubbles are gone after having exploded they aren’t anywhere to be found. Aroma of tons of grass, hay, spice, white pepper, light hops and a lot of herbs. Medium-bodied; Assertive grassy flavour with a lot of wheat and yeast flavours, some light fruits and a hint of herbs in the finish. Aftertaste has a nice balance of barnyardie flavours and malt with tufts of sweetness coming out at the end. Overall, a good example of a biere de garde FROM france, but for some reason this isn’t categorised in the proper style - this is not a belgian strong nor a belgian ale of any calibre but a saison at worst and a biere de garde as the closest. I sampled this stubby 33 cL bottle purchased from Whole Foods in New York, New York (Bowery) on 25-April-2014 for US$3.99 sampled at home in Washington on 02-June-2014.

Idiosynkrasie (4460) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAY 11, 2014
330ml bottle. Cloudy golden colour with average to huge, thick, creamy, fairly lasting and lacing, white head. Saison-like yeasty and herbal aroma, a touch of dill, brine, marinade. Taste is strawy, pale malty, slightly floral yeasty, spicy yeasty, slightly disguised notes of peach. Not bad.

A good example of how north brewers of France can as talentful as belgian brewers.
