2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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. Slightly cloudy with a fluffy cheesy head. Aroma is earthy and sweet. Taste is rice and caramel malts with some bread and sweetness. Light brown sugar. Creamy and just ok for me.

Pours a medium amber color with a finger of foam. Lots of fruity esters, round malt presence and a solid yeast profile. Simple yet well balanced and easy to drink. Good representation of the style !

Bottle. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a slight off white head that collars arouns the glass. The aroma is very biscuity with some real nice highlights of belgian yeast with spice and banana. Some fruit notes as well. Medim mouthfeel. Sweet type flavor up front with some clove and babana belgian yeast flavors. Slight lingering bitter type flavors. No real lace to speak of. Alcohol is not real evident. Overall, pretty tasty.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slightly sweet aroma, hints of spice, and a touch of green apple tartness. Pours a clear amber with a cap of tight white head. Touch of tartness, sweeter then I expected. Very drinkable, but nothing extraordinary.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a clear bright copper color with a foamy, off-white head that provided some lacing and collapsed into a galaxy swirl atop the beer that lasted to the bitter end. The aroma was malt, some faint Belgian yeast, caramel and sugary sweetness. The flavor was sweet caramel up front with the Belgian yeast and some mild citrus and peppery spice coming into play. The mouthfeel was nice if slightly on the oily side. Alcohol not noticed at all. Very nice, very easy to drink!

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I just noticed that this is a spring seasonal, so maybe I’m drinking this one a little too late. Nose is surprisingly malty. Some spice. Not heavily malty, but it just stuck out on the aroma. Malt dominates the flavor profile also. Again, it’s not heavy. The weight of the beer is lighter than I originally expected. The fruit comes out to play a bit. There’s notes of fruit rind and skins aplenty. In general, the beer was a bit flat in terms of flavor. Simple. Not much here. Wish I had this fresh.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
