JulienHuxley (5417) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 2, 2013
Bottle. Hazy red pour with no head, completely flat pouring. Aroma is earthy, birch bark, cherries, faint acetic notes, light citrus. Flavor is unfortunately a tad gastric, woof. Good cherry notes, malty, booze and caramel complete the flavors. Palate is a bit hot, dead flat, definitely on the winey side of things but just generally lacks a bit of enjoyability.

Draft at the Coffee District in Delray Beach, FL. Snifter. Pours a muddy, murky reddish brown with a one finger white foamy head. Aroma of sweet fruits such as cherries and plums. Some infection on the nose, but pleasant. Taste was fruits such as cherries, currents, sour apples. Mild carbonation. A malty blend with a clean, sour finish like a green apple. Somewhat dry, but pleasant. Medium light i body. Very good sour.

alexsdad06 (8159) - Ohio, USA - SEP 7, 2013
Draft January 2013. Pours a hazy, orange amber color with a small, bubbly off-white head. The aroma has sweet caramel,tart and sour cherry, berries, oak and vinegar. The flavor brings more of the same tart cherry fruits, spices, sweet caramel malts,oak, vinegar and alcohol with a mild vinous note. Hides the abv pretty well.

On tap @ Beachwood Brewing. Dark reddish pour with very little head. The nose is really heavy on the wine. Vinous, moderately acetic, and quite a bit of fruit. Cherry and raisin, in particular. Oak, red wine, and vinegar flavors. Lots of cherry and raisin, some lemon peel, grass, and booze.

toxichop (578) - South Gate, California, USA - SEP 3, 2013
On tap at Beachwood. P: Dark amber? Brown red? Something like that. Pretty hazy beer with a thin white head, although I heard that the head from the bottle is huge. S: Very complex stuff going on here, dried raisins, cherries, rotting wood, figs, dark caramel, plums and some nuts. The smell is just all over. T: Found a lot of sweet malt in here, some cherries, a nice fruity presences mainly pears, wood and leather. M: Thin with light carbonation. O: I havent had many Biere de Garde but this was nice and will possibly be seeking a bottle. Also I had no idea this was 11 percent and I would of never guessed.

kerenmk (3804) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - AUG 24, 2013
Bottle shared at a sour tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Orange, headless and with floaties. Nuts, bile and gherkin water aroma, tastes more pleasing and fruity, though, like fruit soup. Starts very sour and becomes more tolerable and sweeter and sips go by. full and heavy body, very carbonated and slightly sour finish. Not an easy beer.

Bottle at RBSG. Pour is a dirty red/brown. Sour cherry aroma, some woodiness to it. Flavor is tart cherry up front, finished a bit dry. Really a great beer, abv is non-existent. Could drink a lot of this.
