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.

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.

Bottle shared at Moosetoberfest. Poured a honey amber with a thick large foamy mostly white head. Aroma was vinous with chardonnay notes, wood and apple cider. Full foamy bodied. Slight metallic notes on the initial flavor, grains and rust over top some white grapes and vinegar. I was rather underwhelmed by this and once again Bullfrog seems to be more Bullshit and hype then good brew.

750 shared by vferg. Pours a hazed honey amber- a bit muddy with a huge carbonation and a dirty yeasty big head. Aroma has a sharp sweet-tartness to it, with weird fruity esters esp as it warms- almost a grape and strawberry ester presence- with a muddled yeasty and dry crackery malts. Flavor is yeasty, phenolic, fruity, dough, dirty muddy yeast, toffee, light sweetness with a hint of tartness in the finish. A bit messy and really looks kinda bad next to the Haverhill BdG. This is a definite miss for Bullfrog.

Thanks again to puzzl for sharing. Deep amber pour with thick white head. The nose is slightly tart with a bit of pineapple character. There is a slightly wet rancidity in here that I can’t say I’m a huge fan of. It’s quite odd actually.

Certainly looks like the style or an Alvinne. Yeasty nose with hints of spices and caramel. Sweet flavor with caramel, roasted malt, spices and yeasty notes. Finished sweet. Rather sweet for the style.

Can’t get into this one at all. Nose is weird, flavor is the same. Plastic, vacuum cleaner, some fruity yeastiness.
