A slightly sweet aroma. This is an eh beer. Some malts and a hint of alcohol but not really a lot of distinguishable flavor characters. The fact that these are all biere de gardes explains the weird flavors that I knew but couldn’t quite identify.

Not the best Bio (organic) beer i’ve ever tasted, but its a amber beer with a little smoke and bitter taste, short finish. Thats it.

erickok (3484) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JUN 21, 2011
Amber-orange and mostly filtered body with medium, white head. Bit dull. Barnyard, pear, green apple, spruce, crackers and dusty. Taste is similarly simplistic, even with the farm-like funk that it brings. It’s that Bierre de Garde-typical acidity that saves this from being totally bland. The ’bite’ is pleasant though and it’s an easy drink. Fine if you’re in France and need to choose between this and a 1664, but won’ blow your socks off. (33cl bottle from supermarket in Tours)

Cloudy brown beer, small white head. Soft creamy malt with a nice peach and orange fruit. Semi dry soft finish. Light frothy tasty beer.

blackantonio (2) - SINGAPORE - OCT 3, 2010 does not count
Personally I found this undrinkable. Pours orange with a small head, off-putting vomit-like aroma, strange cardboard notes. Very dry finish, which left the offensive notes lingering in my mouth.

DeanF (1687) - Nunavut, CANADA - MAR 26, 2010
Foggy orange, decent head, but not an extensive amount of staying power. On the nose is barley and hops, just barely though. Taste is a bit of burlap and hazelnut, slight chocolate and caramel notes on the back end.
