3fourths (8342) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 2, 2014
750ml bottle from Au Baron in Gussignies. The first try, at the cafe, was muddy and yeasty and un-rateable, the fault of the servers glugging the hell out of the bottle while pouring. The second try finally gave us a good impression of the beer. Hazed amber with a fine white head. A combination of fruity esters (apple skin, banana, pear) and airy / dusty yeast in the nose. Medium body, sweet with low bitterness and medium acid. Juicy malt sugar with creamy texture from the suspended yeast. Rustic and bright, sweet and savory.

erickok (3966) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - FEB 27, 2014
Murky light amber body and bubbly head. Belgian appeal, red fruity malts and yeast, light spice, biscuity malts too. Layered but also unfortunately a bit too sweet. Taste is in the same vain, a bit too sweet and simplistic in the aftertaste. It?s okay, not as rich as expected. (75cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

sebletitje (7029) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 19, 2014
Bouteille 75cl. BB 20/2014, lot# 48? Ambrée, col blanc fin devenant vite plat. Arôme est malté, caramel qcq effluves houblonnées pour un style restant très français dans l’approche. Amertume venant des houblons porte sur qcq notes agrumes et herbacée. Palais est bien effervescent, léger malté caramel. Fini avec une pointe de noisette? Houblonné vert sur un léger résiduel nobles. Reste correcte comme bière de garde.

77ships (4550) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JAN 19, 2014
75 cl. bottle sampled @ RBBWG 2014. Courtesy of & thx! to Sebletitje. Pours orange. Nose is sweet oranges, orange peel, faint lemon peel, lemonade, touch aspirin. Taste is bitter orange peel, caramel, bitter yeast, plastic, aspirin, some sugar, grains, some malts. Sparkling. Okay but not that stellar. I am starting to suspect that Americans are systematically overrating everything that has the non-existing style “Bière de Garde” attached to it. What is the deal with that, too hip to admit that you are over-hyping French saisons?

Grzesiek79 (3345) - Radom, POLAND - DEC 27, 2013
Dobre de garde ze spora piana i metnoscia, drozdze osadzone wzdluz butelki co swiadczy o dlugim lezakowaniu piwa w pozycji lezacej. Aromat suszonej moreli. W smaku troche jakb gueuze ale z dodatkiem suszonych owocow zwlaszcza moreli. Brazowo- pomaranczowy kolor i spora biala piana.
