Had this in Paris, 2006. Notes from then. Have they changed the beer?
Medium golden color, average head. Very fruity, somewhat sweet aroma. An amazingly fruity flavor, apple, citrus with a touch of honey, grapes, not very sweet really, with good hop bitterness. A long lasting hop finish too. Very original tasting.

To celebrate my S4aD on RB while being in Bordeaux...A French Tripel (listed as biere de garde....). 25 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden orange with a huge, slowly collapsing white head. Aroma is cornish and malty, light sweet note. Sweet caramelish flavoured, light bitterness and vague spice note. Lingering sweet caramelish finish, vague metallic note. Sweet little triple, I don’t get why this is listed as Bière de Garde.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Corked 750ml bottle from Sainsburys. Pours very pale, little head - quite hardly carbonated. Aroma is sweet, buttery and alcoholic. Flavour is very sweet and alcoholic with malt and a little bitterness. Not wonderful but pleasent and drinkable. Much, much better than I expected.

Bottle, 7.5%. Clear dark golden colour. The flavour is nicely malty, slightly sweet, quite peppery. Has a little vegetable, but seems clean. Good peppery aftertaste with a rough, cleansing bitterness.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled, 750ml cork & cage, aged 4.5yrs. Gold with white head. This had aged well, still good condition with a light fruity aroma. The body had a deep fruity flavour, peachy and tangy, maybe a sharp apple note. Lacks a dryness, but really pretty decent and reasonably smooth with the aging.
