Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 12, 2005
11.2 oz. bottle, the first time I’ve seen it in this format... Clear, crimson colorint, intense carbonation, rocky, creamy, off-white head that stays a long, long time... Aroma, sweet and rosy, fruits aplenty, the darker ones, grapes, berry, melon... Taste: nice bit of hops up front, bold and bright, more brisk fruit shining through...refreshing and flavorful. Medium bodied, with a gentle, fruity, hoppy finish. Nice play on the mouth, this gives much and takes little, offers rewards with each new sip. There are better biere de gardes, but once this is in my mouth, I find it hard complain about a lack of transcendence in my glass...nice beer, ’nuff said.

beeryum (652) - Norcross, Georgia, USA - JUL 11, 2005
Bottle. Clear gold amber pour. Sweet malty, fruity, and a little eathy/woody flavors. Maybe some apple hints, but I was thinking maybe a shade too malty. Very drinkable.

aracauna (3501) - Georgia, USA - JUL 9, 2005
Pours a medium amber with a decent head. Caramel dominates the malt flavor, slightly musty. Lots of apple skins in the flavor. Not a bad beer.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 26, 2005
Amber with a big fluufy head. Sweet, cellary aroma of yeast, red apples and toffee. Burnt sugar, red berries, gras and red apples in flavour. Nutty aftertaste.

Kinz (3737) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JUN 17, 2005
750 cork bottle. Medium, clear, amber with a touch of orange, no apparent yeaast in the bottle. Aroma was woodsy with a touch of apple. Pleasant flavor, fresh cut oak, touch of apple, and a growing caramel presence as it warmed. Not the most complex thing in the world, but quite refreshing and enjoyable.

Lou18 (1353) - West Paterson, New Jersey, USA - JUN 16, 2005
Bottle from the great Rich. Poured a clear amber , very clear, lots of tiny bubbles.Very nice lacing. Nose had an of aroma, not unpleasant. Lots of flavors swillering around. There was yeast and spices and hops. The is a strong alcohol taste, but at 6.5% seemed odd. This had a new taste with each sip. Very nice.

fiulijn (19160) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 12, 2005
Dark amber color. Malty beer, with a good body strength, medium sweet but with a strong bitterness (of pretty good quality). One of the best common beers in France.

shrubber85 (10675) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUN 5, 2005
Corked bottle. A distinct quinine aroma. Clear amber color with small head. Initially a sweet malt aroma with a bitter quinine finish. Like tonic water.

KimmoS (51) - FINLAND - JUN 4, 2005
From a can. White cidery head, not much of it and it vanishes quickly. Nice warm copper color. Refreshing, I would not mind having this on a hot day. I can’t taste any alcohol. Sweet after taste.

Pernille (518) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 25, 2005
Wow! Interesting. Is this really apple-beer or does it just taste and smell of it? It’s almost like a mix of cider and beer. It’s quite sophisticated, and Carl even thinks it’s like champagne with soft bubbles!
