3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Backlog rating on 11-08-2012 at Club Soda, Fort Wayne, IN. This draft beer has a very small tan head that mostly diminishes, hazy amber body, minimal carbonation observed, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is bready, caramel malt, fruity, and sweet. The flavor mimics the aroma. The mouthfeel is light carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. This beer is quaffable, has a good flavor and is worth trying.

I haven’t had a lot of bier de garde’s... But this is quite easily the best one. Very nice fresh red berries on the nose. Malty and sweet up front with a nice tangy fruity finish. Dry and refreshing.

This one poured a light amber color with a white head. Aroma was of caramel, metal, dust, and grass. Flavor was similar, light rustic character and apple notes, but mainly caramel and grainy.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at World of Beer, Ann Arbor. Pours a copper/amber color with a bubbly but thick white head that lingers nicely. Aroma has a light must to it. Very yeasty with some biscuits, red fruit, and Belgian-type spices. Taste is odd. The red fruit, yeast and spices don’t seem to blend well together. Light acidic finish. Bubbly carbonation. Not bad but not my kinda beer.

Pour on tap at APN 2013, clear orange pour with thin white head, aroma brought biscuit, bread and lots of spice notes, hints of grain, slight red fruits, touch of yeasty qualities in there as well. Taste is a mix of lots of yeast, spice, hints of red fruits mixing into a touch of red fruits, slight caramel, more bready notes, finishing sweet.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Blue monk. hazy orange Amber pour worth a thick off white head. Nose is sweet, some malt. Nothing stands out too much. Taste is big on yeast and mild malt. The finish is medium long and earthy. Some gentle bitter hop in there too, but nothing too crazy.
