Another bottle busted out by Deuane. A - Pours murky amber brown with a small half finger tall white head leaving light lace down the glass. S - Smells of light spice, graham cracker caramel malt, candied sugar, and some dulled fruit like pears and apples. Not too bad so far. T - Starts off with a bit of candied sugar sweetness quickly giving way to a mix of graham cracker caramel malt, dulled fruit, and some light spice. A bit too thin for my liking. The finish is a mix of sweetness and light fruitiness, lingering for a short period of time. M - Medium body and flavor with moderate carbonation. A bit thin in the feel with some lingering sweetness in the finish. O - I am not sure how old this one is but either way it was not too bad but it isn’t something I would go seeking out.

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.

jgb9348 (4659) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - AUG 11, 2008
Hazy golden coloured body with a thinnish slightly off-white head. Aroma of grass, fresh malt and a good dose of hops. Medium-bodied; Sharp fresh grassy hops taste strong along with some malt and a bit of perfumey scents. Aftertaste shows a bit more complexity with coriander seed and a bit of spice, but mostly malt. Overall, a good strong flavoured beer that shows well, especially in the summer! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Sam’s Warehouse Liquor in Oklahoma City, OK on 13-February-2008, drunk after my first round of golf ever on 07-August-2008.

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.

paultheguru (644) - Parker, Colorado, USA - DEC 26, 2010
A: poured into a snifter. It pours a beautiful amber color which leans more towards the red side. Good head retention and a decent amount of lacing. S: A mix of sweet and sour. some sauerkraut, as well as some sweet breakfast malts. A hint of fruit and spices. T: slight cabbage flavor. Very sweet malts. Very interesting biere de garde. Caramel and kind of fruity. A little too sweet for the style. M: Very smooth and palate pleasing. Good carbonation level. D: its drinkable, but not a good representation of style. Almost takes like a belgian blond.

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.

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.
