Douberd (1999) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAR 17, 2014
Bottle 750 ml at home, poured into a tulip glass. recently expired as I see, but it’s a Biere de Garde, so I guess it’s okay. ABV 7.5% Very dark orange colour on the body,one could say light amber. Transparent body, no activity in it. Small off-white head with low retention and minimal lacing left behind. Aroma of malts, caramel, well that’s it, maybe some toffee a well and some floral notes too. Sweet taste with lots of caramel in it, quite malty, toffee and some butter. Medium body, carbonation on good levels, heading towards the high side but without being annoying, good dryness on the palate. Overall an okay beer, nothing to get excited about.

Une bière peu chère, pas exeptionnel mais au moin c’est un vrai ambrée qui se laisse appréciée.

hawthorne00 (2351) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 10, 2014
Bottle, 9C. Clear copper with a white head. Aroma of sticky bread crusts, raisins, quinces, gentle spices. Lowish carbonation. Sweet, malty with some dried fruit, creeping bitterness with spices, maybe just slightly metallic. Alcohol hidden, although it’s rich. Bitterness is discreet but insistent in a way that I really liked. Not a thriller but a classy and pleasant drink.

A good Belgian style amber but not quite up to a Belgian brew. Good but not as good as The classics.

imaragingbull (569) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 27, 2014
Pours clear amber with well retained white head and good lace. Aromas of noble hops, sweet toffee and grains. Med chewy lightly sweet body, light med carbonation, noble hop lingers through lightly hoppy and mineral finish ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Finn (4003) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 17, 2014
Boks 0,5l fra U-Express, Nice. Delt med Rune under rateseanse i H9 1 Okt 13. Brun med litt rødskjær. Veldig høyt tett skum. Tett lacing. Forsiktig maltaroma. Smaken er på den søte siden. Karamell & mandler. Syrlig avslutning. Svakt uklar i siste kvelling.

hombrepalo (1800) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 16, 2014
11.5 oz bottle. a pretty standard biere de garde - some caramel going on, but mostly grassy and grainy - nothing stand-out, glad I had it at a fest instead of dishing the money out for a whole bottle on my own.
