Man, you know the beer revolution is gathering pace when the French swap tradition for innovation. This is a cross between a biere de garde and an IPA, according to the description, which doesn’t necessarily guide the reader too far. Looks pretty good: lager gold with a thick, lacing head. Ripe aroma of hard lemon candies, Parma Violets and wheatsheaf. Light, lemon flavour with a nice underlying biere de garde yeastiness and some clove and sour fruits in the finish. Uncomplicated, quenching, well made and really quite lovely. More biere de garde than IPA, in my opinion. Very more-ish for the strength. (33cl bottle from Steve’s Cool Booze, Kingsford. BB30/6/14)

750 ml corked & caged bottle, from Voldby Křbmandsgĺrd. ABV is 6.5%. Golden colour, decent white head. Pleasant aroma of bičre de garde yeast and citrussy and herbal hops. Refreshing and fairly sophisticated and crisp bičre de garde flavour, with well balanced herbal hops throughout. Enjoyable.

jamesie1857 (1351) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2013
330ml bottle from Beer Hawk - A light golden body, frothy white head that laces nicely. a bit of a yeasty nose, banana, clove, dough. The taste has a bit of bite, the clove-i-ness hits the back of the mouth on the way down and leaves a lasting finish, yet stays refreshing. A good one, but not that unique.

Much more a ’Bier de garde’ than a ’IPA’ . Thin head with light carbonation, light pale body. Little hop aroma or bitterness, distinct belgian yeast flavours. Nice enough nowhere close to an IPA though. Still a hundred times closer than Greene king!
