2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sample courtesy of Wohlfs. Golden yellow in color. Aroma and flavor of euro-lager skunk. Not too overwhelming though. Finishes with a unique sweet-bitterness. Just o.k.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a hazy gold with almost no head at all. Aroma was grassy with some fruit. Flavor was spicy with a bit of bubblegum to it. Body was a little thin and watery. It’s OK, but certainly not a standard of the style.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hay, alcohol, malt. That’s what I taste. Not good. The body looks light, but malty metallic tones make for a bad brew. Not recommended.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark yellow color with a medium head. Aroma of oranges and dust. Tasted like a slightly spiced vegetable smoothy with an ample supply of hay thrown in. Not necessarily terrible, but not my cup o’ tea.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
0.75l - Straw clorored liquid under thick white head. Woody, vegtable nose. No real flavor, watery and refreshing. Nutty flavor entered as it warmed. A solid example of the style.

Sampled from a 750 ml corked brown bottle this beer poured a hazy golden color with a medium sized foamy white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was light citrus and bread. The flavor was tart and citric with touches of bread, must, chalk and perfume. Medium length finish. Medium body. Eh.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear golden body, big bubbles rising, and a big white head. 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.
