Pours a medium amber color with a finger of foam. Lots of fruity esters, round malt presence and a solid yeast profile. Simple yet well balanced and easy to drink. Good representation of the style !

12 ounce bottle. Thanks Justin. Pours a hazy brownish orange with a decent white head. Aroma of fruit, malt, and yeast. Taste is malt, caramel, fruit, yeast, and a bit of spice. Pretty good.

Bottle shared by Lukaduke, thanks! Dark golden toasted yellow with a finger of sudsy head. Nose is pear, apple, fruit. Mouthfeel is low carbonation with a round, medium body. Taste is apple juice, pear, some earthy grass notes. Finish is fruit juice, some grassy notes, little bitterness. OK.

Bottle thanks to ksurkin! Pours hazy copper, thick white head. Aroma of caramel, Belgian yeast, lemon, and some earthy tones. Flavor is bitter, orange peel, alcohol, resin, and roasted coffee bean. Finish is a bit foul for me, but appropriate effort the style.

Pours a dark, slightly hazy amber with a thick and fairly persistent eggshell head. Malty aroma has a strong fruity overtone, mainly apple with more than a hint of banana. Fruity flavor has just the right amount of sweetness, with a malty undertone and a firm hint of hops. Texture is firm and viscous, if none too fizzy. Sip it and enjoy.

750 from Ale Yeah in Decatur. Dark for a Biere de Garde. Slight farmhouse aroma, but taste is mostly malt and amber. Not really biere de garde (though not a style...but still) that I would recognize.

Murky amber color out of the bottle with a big foamy off white head. Light spicey and yeasty nose. Very lively on the tongue. Malty sweet with some orange, spice, earth, bread dough and mild acidity.

GTAEgeek (1470) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 30, 2013
750 mL bottle. Dark, orange-brown, hazy pour, with a small, creamy, off-white head. The aroma is anise, apricots, sourdough bread, coriander, and slight apples and caramel. Fairly dry, malty, and lightly spicy. Medium body, a little syrupy, creamy, and slightly acidic. Overall, this is a very interesting, flavorful beer. Darker, thicker, and more flavorful than I expected.

Nice aroma and a great feeling on the palate. I enjoy the taste of malt. A pretty good amber. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
