Deep reddish with a white head. Dark, malty sweetness, chocolate, funky fruit notes, clove, zesty sourness. Full bodied. Interesting take. Good.

Bottle. Very different to what I was expecting. Much darker for starters, but the funkyness was much stronger than anticipated as well. This was an old bottle, so I would like to try it again, but based on what I had I’m not sure this beer is for me.

An unusual version of the style as it was way darker than expected. The flavour was unusual too - a delicious combination of Belgian beer and French wine. I can live with both.

M_Sack (403) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 13, 2014
Bottle. Cellared for 2 1/2 years. Murky brown, mahogany with virtually no head. Sour aromas, funk, plenty of malt and stewed stone fruit. A lively sour element to the front and finish, but a strong caramel malt middle. The alcohol presents itself but is well balanced and appropriate. Very enjoyable

Not sure on the low ratings of this. Thought it was pretty good. From the bottle cheers to the boob at good food and wine show. Pours dirty amber with a khaki head. Nose is full of spice, mild banana and a whopping amount of christmas cake fruits and sweetness. Absolutely chock full of raisin sweetness, plums and dates while brown sugar overlaps between them. Fair kick of spice too including liquorice and mild cinnamon. Quite tasty stuff

mattyhennessy (360) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - MAY 22, 2014
Pours a cloudy bright yellow with a small white head. Yeasty, spicy aroma that is reflected in the taste. Light bodied with high carbonation. Not much to this in terms of complexity, which is uncommon for a Beire de Garde. However is it refreshing and enjoyable, which makes it a nice alternative to some of the heavier of the style.

johndoughty (4148) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2013
Bottle. Muddy brown appearance and poured with a small head. Slightly sulphuric and a bit on the sour side.Dont really think that this is a Biere de Garde. If it is its a poor example of the style.

Shark_Pants (351) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 24, 2013
Pours nice deep brown with one finger head. Aroma is sweet malts with funk similar to a saison. Taste is sweet malt, yeast, some spice, dry finish with a light bitterness. Not overly complex but very enjoyable nonetheless. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle 750ml @Beer Hunters
Clear deep ruby color, small beige head. Aroma has some cellary notes, ginger, cinnamon, lots of berries (red currant). Medium-bodied. Very berryish, red currant and caramel. Feels Danish, not French!

Unde (486) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 16, 2013
Hazy brown to yellow looks, with delicate head. Stingy zesty fruits and something else I can’t specify from the aroma. Taste has yeast, zesty fruits, some berries. Medium body and high carbonation. Interesting beer but I think I need to try this again to fully understand all the flavors in it.
