Soft Amber. Quite bubbly with nice head. Beautiful aroma of honey and vanilla and oak. This most be oak aged to get the honey and vanilla smell. Incredibly smooth, not complex flavor with a slightly sweet aftertaste. Great aftertaste but not complex. Good but not great.

Marko (4301) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 12, 2004
This smelled nice, pkeasant and malty, and looked magnificent, deep peach ice tea like amber, with a big, not-quite-white firm looking head. Tasted the head - nice.. fruity even. Went on to the rest, there was something in the beginning that was fruity, but turned a bit sour (in a nice way), but watery, with the omnipresent roasty aftertaste. Amber ale meets biere de garde. Not stunning, but suprisingly good for a French beer.

heemer77 (5174) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - NOV 3, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 4, 2004 Poured from a green 750 mL bottle. The body is a slightly darker red, kind of like iced tea. Has a head that is Slightly sour aroma of vinegar, oak and some old socks. Also has some old apples. The flavor is a fairly dry wool banket (not horse blanket). Has some notes of plantains. It is hard to describe. Reminds me of a nice mild and malty bitter. Certainly unique.

leaparsons (8837) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2004
Orange/brown with a small white head. Aromas are grain and watered down malt whisky. Flavours are sweet grain with a woody, oak barrel character. Quite cloying on the palate. Sometimes I just don’t get on with French beer, don’t know why.

dirkules (629) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 23, 2004
red amber copper colour with no foam... I’m not sure what to make of a biere de garde but it has amber oak and caramel flavours and is very sweet on the palate. I liked this beer.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 3, 2004
Sampled at the Taverne Saint Germain in Paris, France. Copper. Nose of caramel, toasted malts, ripe fruit, lemon and a hint of apple. This was a very pleasant, very mellow, dry and a very flavorful and traditional Biere de Garde. Farmhouse characteristics. Burnt caramel, toasted malts, ripe fruits, perhaps a hint of ginger and a lingering suggestion of pit fruit on the finish. Lovely.

IslandHaole (1091) - Yokosuka-Shi, Kanagawa-Ken, JAPAN - OCT 22, 2004
A clear dark amber color with a fine bubbled beige head. Nice rich malt scent, sweet but decent malt flavors. A slight metallic taste is a bit of a drawback to an otherwise solid brew.

I has hoping for more. On the pour:nice copper colour,with slightly off white head.The nose is mild and pleasant. On taste:malt,some spice,and sugar,pepper and tangy earth.The finish is sweet but nice..Pleasant and not overpowering.A good beer. A little watery,good finish.
