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.

IrishBoy (4095) - Bakersfield, California, USA - FEB 29, 2008
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!

(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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
