Sugary malt flavors, with a smooth creamy texture. This brew is just too sweet for me. Kind of the cream soda of beer.

Perfect dark amber colour. Some notes of caramel in the aroma, and more chocolate/caramel in the flavour. Balanced and a little hoppy. Has a nice somewhat sweetish finish.

Funny beer this one. Very complex. Tastes like a cross between a lager, an english pale-ale and mead. Looks great - almost perfect colour with a nice haed that fades a little too rapidly. Very light tasting beer overall. I quite like it, however there is a point in the flavour where it tastes like a mouthful of macro lager. I don’t know why this is though... other than that i quite like it. it has a nice hop finish too. I think I’m ready to give 3 monts another go.

This one is way better than the blonde version. Amber-colored, creamy head. Palm-like taste. Nice beer!

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2003 champagne taste and a beer pocketbook. When it comes to Belgian White Ales and French Biere de Garde this is a classic. Rate it right under 3 Monts. Better than most Belgians. Unpasteurized so try it in the spring or winter. 750ml bottle cork has the bottling month and year.

Linc (737) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 14, 2002
Lovely colour, thick tan head, light aroma, hay and caramel. Spicy palate medium sweetness, crisp slightly sour finish. Full mouthfeel but it lacks strength of flavour. OK, not great.

DavefromChicago (201) - Illinois, USA - JUL 21, 2002
Le bottle est vert. L’aroma est Pepe le Pu. The beer pours a nice orange color. Tastes fairly dry and hoppy, when cold, with the appropriate earthy, musty component of a farmhouse brew. At warmer temps it becomes sweeter and richer, but still refreshing and comparable to a good Belgian saison. Other than the touch of skunkiness, this was a bargain at $3.99 for a 750ml.

jonas (5477) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JUL 15, 2002
light brown amber - medium head. Aroma of caramel and hints of juniper. Taste a bit like a heath smells and looks...Enjoy it slowly and almost at room temp.

Caton (160) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 15, 2002
Simple as far as Biere de Garde go. Spicey, curaco and a sweet malty nose. Quite spicey on the palate and short finish.
