3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Corked 750ml bottle. Pours a hazy amber orange with a large white head. Fruity and yeasty aromas with a large degree of sweetness taste has some caramel and malt sweetness that is well balanced with the strong fruit flavours, without overly dominating the yeast. Finishes bittersweet, making this excellent

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
75cl bottle @ the Fourth Shrewsbury Bottle Share April 2014, courtesy of myself. Great to try a traditional corked Biere de Garde, first made for the village of Beloeil. Pours a cloudy blond with a creamy texture, comforting saison yeast and a brilliantly mellow sweetness. Could’ve done with being a bit cooler and between the six of us seemed to be gone all-too-quick! Would love to pick this up again. A great blond from a great brewery.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cork and caged 0.75 litre bottle shared at the fourth Shrewsbury bottle swap on 28th April 2014. Poured a cloudy pale amber/orange with a minimal head of white tight bubbles. The nose was a mixed bag of aromas, yeast, orchard fruits and bread esters. Taste wise it again offered a selection of flavours to try and pick out: each different flavour had a spiciness to go with it, semi-sweet malty molasses played with semi-sour cooking apples and the yeast was never far away from my thoughts. I really enjoyed it, thanks minutemat for bringing it.

Great beer. Easy drinking, smooth, and virtually no alcohol burn. Very fine carbonation. This beer really hits the mark for a Belgian Ale.
