3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
3/25/2009: Brooklyn Savoir Faire is a well-balanced, soft, and really easy to drink brew. It is strong, leans towards the sweet side of things, and others a mouthful of interesting flavors that play nicely together including cherry liquor, hints of bubblegum, sugary cotton candy, yeast (more in the aroma), spicy, and herbal/grassy hops. The overall bitterness is fairly mind and the alcohol will definitely catch up with you quickly if you’re not paying attention. I really enjoyed this beer.
Draught pint at Dilly Deli in Mariemont, Ohio. Rating #52 for this beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Barcade: Slightly hazy orange copper with a thin dense head. The aroma is sweet and dusty yeast character. Lightly grainy, with lots of sugary sweet malt character, fig, and diacetyl. Sticky carbonation and a sweet flavor. Sticky Belgian phenolics, honey and dried fruits. There is also some apparent alcohol, becoming peppery towards the finish. Sweet, alcoholic, one dimensional and not at all like a Biere De Garde..

Listed at Big Pour Mesa, AZ...stated by staff only as a Biere de Garde. This beer poured burnt orange with only a minimal ring of a head. It had a grassy, almost hoppy quality with a malty sweet backbone. Biscuit/bready characteristics as well. Spice wasnt aggressive but definitely present. A little syrupy. Not bad but not overly impressed.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2009 On tap at Tylers. Bright clear light amber pour with off-white head that doesn’t hang on too long. They didn’t have a description of it, but the combination aroma of honey, grain, bread, and that kind of malt liquor smell made me assume it was a Biere de Garde (Does that make me cool? My wife says no). Sweet honey notes and bread flavors. Slight butter; not really much fruit at all. A bit off-putting at first, but not a bad beer overall.
