I had this at my 24th birthday (god, was this a long time ago ...) and it made me sick the whole day after. I can't believe most of you liked this beer ...

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Beer #30 at Spiesy’s. Hazy gold colour. Yeasty aroma with a hint of apple. A little spicy and very soft. OK, but uninspiring. I’m afraid my taste buds were too blown away by this stage to pick up much more. Bottled.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Head is initially large, frothy, white, good lacing, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy medium yellow, dense particles ranging from tiny to medium in size, bottle conditioned. Aroma is lightly hoppy (grass), lightly yeasty (dough), with notes of apple, cask wood, and white wine. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic. Finish is moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Medium to full body, creamy texture, soft carbonation. It’s got that telltale French beer odor, which I’ve never been that fond of, and a somewhat dull sweet/sour flavor that just doesn’t appeal to me either.

Bottle@Spiesys. Soft and easy going. Brady/doughy maltyness. Sweetish, slightly dusty texture, some rubber, not bad, was hoping for more with this Biere de Garde.
