COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
As a lover of saisons I felt it necessary to brew its French counterpart, the Biere de Garde, full of luxurious richness with its aroma sweet to tart candy apples. The palette is full of expressive malt yet finishes dry and spicy with a note of tartness from the yeast.

koopa (338) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 25, 2010
750ml caged and corked bottle purchased at Capone’s. Appearance: Nice brown body with garnet corners. The head is 2 fingers, beige, rocky, and beautiful! Loads of retention and lace. Smell: Yeast, peach, apricot, and a touch of honey sweetness. Taste: Prickly carbonation leads into some dark fruit like cherries and plums, then there is a transition to peach and apricot followed with a semi-dry finish. Mouthfeel: Just fine medium body with prickly carbonation. Driknkability: There is just a bitter acrid character to the flavor that makes the bottle hard to get through. It gets much better as it warms but this one is a miss for me. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 10-06-2009

On draft at the brewpub. Pours a dark honey colour with white head. Aroma of spices, yeast, zesty lemon/lime, funk and other interesting smells. Can’t quite pin down the aroma. Flavour is better than the aroma.
