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.

jsquire (3551) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - JUN 10, 2013
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 (1285) - 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

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - FEB 18, 2013
A - Pours up a clear amber. I finger off white head that sinks into a razor thin island. S - Over ripened pears, sour apple, cider, toffee, spicy Belgian yeast. T - Sour/tart fruit-apples, a moderate spiciness, Belgian yeast, a mild tart cider shows up more and more as it rests. This beer is strange. The longer it sets the worse it gets. Even with different temperatures. It’s great right off the pour. Weird. Serving type: bottle 08-24-2010

Smells weird, orange with sweet amber malt smells. sweet breads ? I don’t know, unique. Amber with quick to settle head. Sweet malty drink. Nice to an extent.
