22 oz bottle. Foggy orange brown with thin white frosting. Nose is cantaloupe, toffee and banana pudding. Medium body with a sparkle; oily then dry. Taste is peach pit, bitter almond and parsley. Odd but alluring.

Hazy amber. Light carbonation. Slightly cidery in the flavor. Sweet but not thick. Good, but not really interesting.

Cybercat (2990) - Georgia, USA - JUN 13, 2013
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.

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 thanks to ericandersnavy. Pours a pinkish color with white fizzy head. Aroma of citrus, apples. Flavor has a little sweetness, faint fruit, and some malt. Light body, fizzy carbonation. It’s ok.

keepersj12 (2561) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - JAN 24, 2012
Much better than my first experience with this brewer (Belgian Quad) but not by much. Pours a murky brown with a soda pop head, foamy then gone. The aroma was some fruit and a bit of caramel. No funk or sourness in the nose or taste. Taste was soda sweet with the same carbonation. This will be my last from this brewer.

22oz bottle shared by a BeerBeggar after a trip to Tulsa. This was a remarkably well made brew, right to style. Has nice malty backbone, which was accentuate by pear and other muted fruits. Strongly yeasty yet malty and drinkable. Had a medium body. It drank very well, was well made to style (it was definitely not a Saison and more of a BdG, for my understanding of the styles). I want to drink this again.

Bottle, courtesy of OKBeerFan. Thanks! Big gusher here. Pour is hazy amber with a big cream-colored head and great lacing. Bready, tangy, lightly fruity, a hint of spice, somewhat grassy, and minerals in the aroma. Taste is vegtables, banana, some bubblegum, caramelly, bready, grassy, vanilla, and malty - hint of alcohol on the backend. Medium mouthfeel with high carbonatoon. Pretty weak Biere de Garde.

(Bottle) Pours an even amber color with a small beige head. Spicy and malty aroma. Taste includes some muted spice, as well as lots of malts. Notes of pepper, candy sugar and rich caramel malts. Good palate, with low carbonation. Balanced for the most part, but gets a little sweet in the aftertaste. A great beer!
