CapFlu (4651) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 31, 2014
Lasting frothy beige head atop a mahogany coloured body. Nose is surprisingly malty - melon and nail polish remover. Great yeasty and alcoholic, faint whiskey and honey. Very enjoyable. Purchased at Metro Liquor University Heights.

Alengrin (2607) - BELGIUM - AUG 26, 2014
Strong ale commissioned by the Beloeil castle and made with grains malted there. Creamy, regular, very stable, yellowish white head, deep orangey bronze colour, cloudy. Rich fruity and yeasty aroma, gingerbread, grapefruit, apple, peach, pepper, bayleaf, bread; tingling fruity taste, mellow bready malts, not really sweet, more peppery and hoppy towards the end, yeasty and appetizing. One of those beers Dupont’s yeast comes to full development, a great beer, not sure if this should be called a ’bière de garde’, though...

mathieuc (1569) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 23, 2014
Pours a light brown or maybe orange with a medium white head that leaves some lacing. Nose is of fruits and spices, fresh. Taste is pretty dry and fruity as well. Some light tartness and caramel, nice balance. Fresh again, no clove, cardamom or mint, something else. Body is light, carbonation moderately high. Overall a nice bière de garde, glad to have been able to try this! I’d drink that again when the leaves turn brown.

This brewery makes just rocking good beers. La Beloeil lies on the milder side of their portfolio. But do not mistake that is not a complex and fascinating beer. aroma is yeast fruit malt candy sugar spice. A slight hint of sour balances things out and along with the body rounds this out to another excellent brew. I could see this peer with a very nice salad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Habanero (2806) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2014
Bottled. Pours hazy amber with an average off-white head. Aroma of caramel, yeast, peachy notes and spice. Sweet flavor that ends up dry and slightly bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carb. A nice de Garde indeed.

mattyhennessy (353) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - MAY 22, 2014
Corked 750ml bottle. Pours a hazy amber orange with a large white head. Fruity and yeasty aromas with a large degree of sweetness taste has some caramel and malt sweetness that is well balanced with the strong fruit flavours, without overly dominating the yeast. Finishes bittersweet, making this excellent

750ml bottle @ Maunula beer tasting. From Saveur Biere.

Copper orange colour with beautiful white head. Aroma of fruit and some sourness. Good thick mouthfeel and taste of dry fruits. Very Belgian. First Biere de Garde style for me.

minutemat (1888) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2014
75cl bottle @ the Fourth Shrewsbury Bottle Share April 2014, courtesy of myself. Great to try a traditional corked Biere de Garde, first made for the village of Beloeil. Pours a cloudy blond with a creamy texture, comforting saison yeast and a brilliantly mellow sweetness. Could’ve done with being a bit cooler and between the six of us seemed to be gone all-too-quick! Would love to pick this up again. A great blond from a great brewery.
