(33 cl bottle from Brødrene D; BBD: November 29th 2012) Pours a clear amber with medium off-white head. Good lace and lively carbonation. Aroma is a pleasantly, subdued leafy with practically no hop impression but mostly some bready malt with fruity esters also being present. Oily texture with lively carbonation, medium body and a slightly bitter finish. Taste is initially mildly sweet from the flavour but ends on a mildly bitter note. Well balanced and easily drinkable despite the ABV.

’The most widely available of the bieres de garde’ appears lustrous amber with a temporary covering of greyish head. The aroma is of sweet, sugary apricots and other fruity malts. There’s a spritzy mouthfeel before a flush of sweet biscuity malts. There is some tangerine tanginess toward the finish. It’s okay, but not especially floating my boat.

shoulderbroken (2733) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 24, 2015
Keyaki. Copper coloured, bit weird. Very floral and fruity, berries. Not as I expected. Sweet caramel too. Feels a bit thin for the sweetness but nice enough.

France trip can. Amber almost red appearance - head quickly disappears to very thin white lace. Steady carbonation, sweet aroma. Tang on tongue and back of mouth, tastes a bit sweet - not enjoyed.

UXO (810) - CANADA - MAY 8, 2015
Pours clear slightly copper-tined pale amber with two fingers of rocky light tan head, good retention and patchy lacing. (3/5) Nose is caramel, mild dark fruit, light grassy hops. (6/10) Taste is moderately strong sweet, mild bitter. (6/10) Medium bodied, lively to moderate carbonation, building bitter and mildly boozy finish. (4/5) Not bad and certainly quite enjoyable with some cheese and sausage from the same convenience/grocery store. (12/20)

SarkyNorthener (2999) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2015
750ml caged bottle from carrefour, Soissons, France. Copper beer with residual head. Aroma is malts, caramel and alcohol. Taste is dry leaf, malts, alcohol and caramel. A touch harsh. Decent.

Swamp_Thing (43) - Florida, USA - APR 3, 2015
Too sweet for me, but cinnamon and honey front and center but not terribly so, although a little thick on the tougue - another consequesnce of the high sugar. Light hops, low carbination do not help the matter.

Holmen1 (3539) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 24, 2015
0,33 flaske delt med Ovesen på tappekveld mars-15: mørk upusset kobber. Ikke helt frisk aroma og smak av tørket frukt og bær. Uspennende og lite som minner om det jeg forbinder med biere de garde.

Holmen2 (1788) - NORWAY - MAR 24, 2015
Bottle shared with JMD at HNB 24.03.15. Dark orange. Off-white head and lacing. Sweet and slightly unfresh aroma. Fruity and with berries. Similar taste, also with dried fruits, dried berries and wine gum.
