Clear golden beer with a white head. The aroma is fruity and yeasty. Sweet taste of honey and malt. Has a bitter finish. A pleasant warming beer, but a little too sweet for me.

i was a bit confused about this one as i'd jotted it down as 'le savoir de saveurs' with tradition du nord in brackets. anyways, a reasonable blonde ale, less sweet than many of its french counterparts, with some almong in the finish. quite mild
Earlier Rating: 1/4/2003 Total Score: 2.8
mellow and inoffensive. some peach mango ice cream aroma. vague malty taste with some ginger tartness saving it from being too dull

Honeyish malt aroma. Golden, champagne bubbles, lowish head. Light flavor, honey malt base,slight fruity overtones. Yeast finish. Lightbody, fizzy mouthfeel. Refreshing,but not really special.

Blond color, big head. Light aroma; corn. Simple taste, with some sweetness, malt. Simple palate, getting a bit more bitter only very late.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2003
Honey-color, medium carbonation, and small filmy head. Toasty organic sweet aroma of maple-tinted honey plus some fruit. Flavor brings more organic sweet notes including caramel. Bitterness is low. The flavor is unique, but strange and too sweet for my taste. It's hard to drink 750 mL of beer by yourself when you're not particularly enamoured with it. Peut-être ce Bière de Garde a besoin de plus gardant?

Nagash (207) - Paris, FRANCE - SEP 2, 2003
Brewed by a small brewer in france (that only produces ch ti), this a really good Bière de garde, really sweet, with some flower in aroma and a lot of sugar in taste but a nice bitterness at finish. The golden can is beautiful.

AceOfHearts (1374) - Mountain View, California, USA - SEP 1, 2003
Bottle. Clear amber, big clingy head. Apple-cinnamon flavor. Dry finish with a touch of pear. Very smooth yet assertive mouthfeel. Well-done.

Fine big head. Yellow-ligthbrown. A little sweetness in aroma. Tastes a little better than I expected. Soft.
