3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a deep golden yellow with a very thin white head that fades quickly. Aroma is spicy, slightly sweet, and grassy hoppy. Taste is quite sweet, a bit spicy, and finishes with a mild grassy bitterness, along with a bit of astringency. Body is light, fairly carbonated. Not bad, but it’s missing the complexity I’d like in a biere de garde.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
App: light gold,no head(although I didn't get to pour it myself, even swirling the glass didn't produce much foam)
Aro:Floral, musty, carmelized malt
Palate:nice and easy
Flavor:malt with spicy yeast notes...didn't notice much alcohol.
Overall:it comes together nicely, sweet, spicy, floral, malty. But as others have said "good but not great"

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Knightly Spirits in Orlando. Pours blond with a half-inch of off-white head. The aroma is buttery with strong malts and a hint of nuts. Notes of biscuit, more malts, more nuts, subtle banana, green apple, and grains. Medium/high carbonation and medium body. Not too complex, but a solid brew.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a totally clear blond with sparse head. Aroma is apple, pear, fresh baked bread, honey, pils malt, caramel, banana. Taste is same as aroma. Body is medium, low to medium carbonation, long bready finish. Overall, underwhelming but interesting. You probably need to pair this one with some carefully chosen food to bring out its full character.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Looks like a lager, but tastes nothing like one. Fruity/sweet, with some yeastiness and a little hop well in the back. Some alcohol on the finish. Not bad at all.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Big bottle. Rich golden brew, straight clean taste, more of a super lager than an ale. I’m missing the grass and pepper that comes through so well in Heavyweight’s Biere D’Art. Next up is 3 Monts.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep golden color with a small head that quickly turned to a nice thin lace. Mild hop aroma, with what smells like dried fruit to me. Has kind of a complex sweetness that is very thick and long lasting. Very syrupy and probably should only be drank with something like a dense chocalate cake. Not really to be consumed by itself, but would go quite well with sweets or a big hearty meal.
