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.

Bottle thanks to ericandersnavy. Pours with a large bone colored head over a muddy amber body. Aroma is butter, cinnamon, pastries, alcohol and apple pie. Really nice. Taste is a bit sour with some green apple, and caramel. Doesn’t live up to the aroma. Fizzy.

A: Pours an brownish amber hue with a small off white head. Lite retention and no lace. S: Very yeasty. Subtle spice with some sweet fruit notes. T: Weird mustiness going on here. The yeast is rather dominate as well with a nice spicy quality. Mild fruit notes with hints of candy sweetness. M: Medium in body, zippy carbonation, dry finish.

Cork gives a large pop, then pours red-copper with a nice beige head. Vinous nose with a lot of sugary grape and apple, also some cinnamon. Flavor is a buzz-kill though, a thorough mess of spice and light fruit sweetness, heavily contrasted. Strong carbonation. Probably my least favorite Bullfrog bottle thus far.

i think Beerlando shared this one, can’t remember sorry! Sour funky aroma, very Fantome-like! Pour amber with a white head. Spicy caramel malts with funky flavors, barnyard flavors, a lot of brett character. Very interesting beer!

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

750ml bottle from kramer. thanks jason.... pours a medium apple cider brown and a medium frothy white head.... aroma of must, yeast, berries, some mint?, and very spices...slighty tart, and earthy. muted flavor overall. some berries to add but doesn’t mesh well all things considered.
