Thanks to a generous trader for sending this my way. Served in a wine glass with some rustic French-inspired soup courtesy of Jared. Pours a very light copper color. It initially has a white head, but can’t hold it at all. There is very, very little lacing. Even a goo, heavy swirl won’t bring the head back. The nose has some subtle light malt and a bit of faint earthiness. There is a small quantity of dry caramel in there as well. The taste has some light earth and slight hop dryness along with some bread. Pretty basic, but okay. Light body with moderate carbonation. Drinks fairly well; this was enjoyable, though not terribly memorable. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 03-09-2011

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.

ben4321 (4744) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 1, 2011
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.

ChainGangGuy (4530) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - FEB 13, 2008
Appearance: Pours a hazy, orangey body with a small white head. Smell: Aroma of caramel malts, a handful of grains, a handful of field flowers, with a bright golden delicious apple fruitiness and a pinch of yeasty spice. Taste: Light caramel maltiness with a bit of graininess. More of the fruity apple character from the nose. Light floral hoppiness with just a touch of bitterness. Peppery, tartish finish and then it’s over. Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: Not bad! It’s a treat to finally try something from the great state of Oklahoma.

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.
