Decent Biere de Garde. Nice aroma - the yeast shines. Golden Blonde in color. Smooth flavor, nice sipper with a decent alcohol punch.

Dark hazy orange-caramel-amber color with a bubbly eggshell head. Aroma of caramel, fresh bread, and a little sweet fruit. Taste is bready and yeasty, a little sweet and a little bitter. Medium bodied and slightly dry.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Wow, I hope this is just a bad bottle. Clear amber with a thin yellowish head. Aroma is mostly just musty. Taste is inoffensive but lost behind the aroma.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudy orange, medium head, very hazy inside.
Aroma is very musty, touch of cooked vegetables. There is a polleny perfumeyness. Very sulfuric. Crap it’s not that good and I have a six pack of it.
The flavor is flowery and earthy. Touch of strawberry and mild plum.
Buttery feel, with a gritty exterior. I don’t recommend this often, but you should drink this straight for the bottle.

Bottle. Poured a clear golden with a small off white head. Malty, wheaty aroma has a hint of caramel. Flavor has wheaty and malty notes, a subtle hoppy tone, and a hint of honey. Smooth texture is fairly fizzy. They went for inoffensive.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma is not the best, with some yeast & alcohol burn & floral humidity. The flavor is dominated by sweetness, with some lite muffin and a dash of yeast. An average brew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A clear copper body with an off white head that had great retention. A nice effervescence through out. Aroma had a nice doughy/bread presence upfront and a mild caramel malt note. Flavor was slightly sweet and had some nice bread flavors. A slight bitterness in a moderately dry finish.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brilliant gold amber with an inch of sea-foam (coarse) head that fades moderately slowly. Aroma of slate, mineral, hint of caramel, herb. Bitter and slightly astringent smelling. Flavor is light grain sweetness, touch of raw sugar, hay. Body is syrupy-watery, medium-to-medium-light weight, Moderate carbonation, moderate coarseness of bubbles, but restrained (medium-light) burn, soft. Overally, an OK Bier de Garde. Aroma is lacking, too much weird Earth/stone/mineral, not enough Franco-Belgian yeast in the flavor or aroma.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Malty and floral aroma. Nice amber color and lasting white head. Good carbonation. It's very well balanced. There is spice, malt, and a touch of bright hops. It's warming and very pleasant.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle . Pours amber with a slight haze and a thin off white head. Aroma is is molasses and bread. Big malt up front but an off putting finish for me, almost medicinal, maybe an old bottle, there was no date. Not that good.
