Bière de garde from North of France. Amber beer, metallic first then roasty, caramel taste with medium sweetness and notable alcohol aroma (7,5 ABV). Good with cheese or meat, autumn and winter season. Quite cheap, worth a try!

Archetypical bière de garde, a bit stronger than it used to be and named after the village where the brewery is located. Thick, firm, sticky, off-white head, colour warm amber, nearly clear with quiet sparkling. Nutty malts in the nose, curaçao, peach, tomato, leafy hops, sweet tobacco, bitter honey, sage. Crisp palate, refreshing, nice dried fruits, some caramel malt sweetness, bit metallic, flowery and leafy hop bitterness in the finish and some sweetness too, smooth. I appreciated this one for its personality.

Only my second Biere de Garde, so I looked in the BJCP Style guide to better know what to expect and what no to expect too. 750ml bottle, pour is copper/amber color a medium off-white head. Aroma is malty sweet with a hint of berries. Taste is a balance of a dry bitterness and slightly caramel malt. Finish reminds me of a rye malt finish. Bitterness is present but no hop aroma or flavor (which I did not expect based on BJCP) Pleasant, drinkable, slightly boozy drink.

Can from Carrefour, central Calais. Amber with a lot of fizz and a swiftly vanishing head. Tastes like an industrial lager with the malt content beefed up a lot; maybe in fact like an insustrial lager mixed with a traditional British ESB. The malty, earthy woodland mulch ESB bits are ok, but unfortunately the strong carbonation and tinny, slightly sour lager flavour don’t go with the maltiness and frankly are pretty grim in their own right. Not for me at all this one.

Pouca espuma, aroma discreto de caramelo. Gosto ácido pouco doce e sem persistência. No geral, uma cerveja que não agradou muito

Mooi donker amber bier met een fijne schuimkraag. Een zoet-bittere smaak met wat caramel. De smaak blijft lekker hangen in je mond. Een helder bier, dat het midden houdt tussen een dubbel en een biere de garde. Een smaakvol bier dat zomers goed te drinken is.

From a 750ml caged corked bottle. Copper brown appearance with medium white head. Aroma and flavour is sweet nutty caramel malts with light spicy elements and alcohol. Finishes sweet and lightly spicy. Medium bodied with an oily texture. More like an Abbey Dubbel than a Biere de Garde in my opinion. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at the GJBF, I was told it was 6.5%? It poured a clear amber with a nice fruity mal aroma. The body was fairly light and it had a slick mouthfeel The taste was fruity with a touch of grapes and caramel. Alright.

Gedronken op het terras bij palais de bierre in dijon. Aangenaam amber met een mooie schuimkraag. In geur en smaak caramel en mout tonen. Een van de betere Belgische biertjes deze vakantie. Juli 2014
