COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This biere de garde has a deep russet color, rich fig-like maltiness and a champagne effervescence. Balanced delicately with the spicy, anise-like French Strisselspalt hop, this rustic country ale has a great depth of character.

07.16.05 Tap at BCTC. Hazy caramel color, no head. Little aroma at all...I’m glad I didn’t smell whatever the hell Todd was smelling! Dry and tinny but weirdly cloying. Some wet woodshed. Rustic indeed.

CapFlu (4616) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 20, 2005
(Draught) Sampled at the Belgium Comes To Cooperstown 2005 in Cooperstown, NY. Pours a dissipating, white head with a cloudy red-amber body. Funky egg, dead dog and moss aroma. Flavour is of a bready moss. Thin mild and watery.

Tap at Fest at Ommegang. Poured amber in color with no head. Aroma is citrusy and spicey. Malty, spicey and very yeasty flavor. Citrusy. Refreshing. Sweet tasting. Enjoyable. Nice beer to drink on that hot and humid day like it was at the festival.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 19, 2005
HBF 2005. Nice amber color with a smooth off white head. Aroma is a little muddled at first. Malty and yeasty but then gives way to a bit of spice and more sweet malt. Flavor is slightly sweet with malt, toasted malts, caramel malts. Lots of malt sweetness, but served a bit too cold and I couldnt detect too many other flavors.

hopscotch (9555) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 19, 2005
Draft... Harrisburg Brewfest 2... Hazy amber ale with a small, creamy, khaki head. The aroma is a bit flemish with notes of apple and toffee. Malty, earthy flavor. Sweet and fruity. Medium-bodied and fizzy. Short, sweet, but drying finish.

From growler. Caramel and candi sugar. Almond and some butterscotch. Light vapors and floral bitterness, mild café. Anise and biscuit. Reminiscent of bière de garde de France. Medium amber color, slight haze, with thin off-white lacing head. Starts sweet with sugary malt, caramel. Mild to medium fruity hops come in to bitter the middle and finish. Has a nice sweet-dry taste but is a little watery at the end. Nutty bitterness in finish and after, with a bready yeasty component. Sweetness is mildly cloying in aftertaste. Nice beer.

Quite different than any other BdG’s i’ve had the pleasure of trying. Poured a hazy amber color with a small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, dried fruits, raisins, and honey roasted nuts. Taste of sweet caramel malts, roasted honey again(?) with little to no hop presence. This was different and rather enjoyable.
