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.

Bottle thanks to ericandersnavy. The smell is malty, sweetness, maple syurp, honey, spices, and fruit. The look is orange in color and hazy. The taste is malts, toasty, butter, spices, and yeast.

Location: 22 oz bottle from Colonial Wine and Spirits, 6/1/11

Aroma: The nose is fairly sweet, some caramel, and floral and funky notes
Appearance: This one pours a hazy copperish color with a fizzy beige head
Flavor: Fairly sweet, caramel, apple, some spice, earth, lightly floral, very light funk
Palate: The body is medium with a fizzy/tingly mouthfeel and a decent drinkability
Overall Impression: This one is a lot of firsts, my first beer of June, my first Oklahoma rating, and (obviously) my first beer from Petes Place / Krebs Brewing Co. That is a nice collection of fairly meaningless firsts. I guess it makes sense for a first beer from Oklahoma to be a farmhouse style brew. (I kid! I kid!) Anyway, as for the beer, it was alright, fairly sweet, but ultimately pretty drinkable.

Bottle from Soonah! Nose of yeast, very light funkiness, and a little corriander; lightly hazed amber with a big beige head; flavor is light caramel, some spicy pepperiness, light tart notes, and some very miniscule alcohol warth in the finish. Pretty good BDG!

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.

sample at DLD - the bottle says Kreb’s Biere de Garde. It pours hazy light amber with a yeasty, malty aroma. The flavor is of caramel malt and has some good fruit accents. Yeasty and sweet, it’s medium bodied and easy drinking. While not outstanding, it’s enjoyable. Thanks to whoever brought this rare brew.

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.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - SEP 23, 2008
Pours a beautiful, deep amber with a head of white that leaves intricate lacing around the glass. Aroma is bit off, with a weird hint of tangerine nut wine- or something like that. Old-tasting blend of musty air, wood, and old bourbon with Sprite. Average mouthfeel. Not bad, but I don’t think I’ll drink more of this.

(bottle - 22 oz) Cloudy orange pour with a fizzy white head. Sweet malts pretty much dominate the aroma with some mild citrus and other fruit sweetness. Fruity and malty flavor at the beginning with lots of fresh fruit notes, but the flavor kind of mellows after that. Some light notes of sweetness at the end but nothing really flavorful. Dry and crisp finish.
