erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - JAN 12, 2005
Pours a deep golden w/ very little head. Aromas of ripe red apples and cinnamon. Sweetish flavors of honey w/ some yeastiness. A little too sweet.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - JAN 10, 2005
Good looking red orange color and a decent head on tio. The aroma is a crisp leafy citrus and a hint of yeast. The taste is less warm and roasty but more crisp and leafy. Rather sweet for a Biere de Garde, kind of sugary. Overall a rather good beer, but could use a bit more warmth.

I haven’t had too many Biere de Gardes, but this wouldn’t be what I thought it’d taste like. I always thought BDG’s were earthy and richly malty, but this was more straightforward and just malty. Also had a cinnamon overtone to the flavor. Didn’t love it, but a well made beer and seemed quite fresh for an import.

Bottle @ Cafe Volo. Poured a nice reddish amber colour with very little head. COmplex nose and flavour with caramel malts, fruitiness and finishing with a combination of barnyard flavour and a touch of bitterness. Great beer.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - JAN 1, 2005
A nicely done, sweet biere de garde. Taste is sweet and malty with typical barnyard flavors. Nice lacing but just a bit too malty. I’d drink it again though.

HoppyBunny (88) - Temptation, Michigan, USA - JAN 1, 2005
Deep amber in color, with lite head and the aroma with a cherry aroma. Caramel taste with as noted before buttery. Has a tart after finish. Love feeling like I am in Paris drinking a beer with my love.

Sammy (9981) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2004
smooth easy drink. Strongly carbonated, refreshing. Like an amber with a purposeful off taste, some nuts, cuitrs, corriander, parsley salt,carrot, and malt. Different and it works.

jgb9348 (5231) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 28, 2004
Clear amber/copper coloured body with a very small off-white head. Aroma of malt, light english hops, alcohol, cardboard, toffeee and some pine. Full-bodied; Strong malt flavour with some astringent bitter flavours such as blood, metal and some odd nuttiness. Aftertaste has that funky puckering flavours with an overall alcoholic feeling. Overall, not a good beer and was worse off than expected. This is my least favourite biere de garde i’ve had thus far (1300+). I sampled this 75 cL bottle purchased from Whole Foods in Vienna, Virginia on 28-December-2004.

argo0 (12498) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 21, 2004
(750ml bottle, best by 03/2005) Clear copper body with small beige head. Aroma is moderately sweet, toffee/caramel, faint wood. Taste is moderately sweet, toffee/caramel, earthy/herbal, some wood. Finishes with some metallic, which really detracts. Light-medium body, some acidity.
