2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
[11.2 bottled June 03] Chunky thick white head left layers of lace that still kling to the glass. Aroma is sweet and malty. Caramel apple! Taste...not so hot. Really just too sweet. I'll rerate once one ages, but I don't have too much hope.

Coloração âmbar,boa formação de espuma,volumosa e com boa manutenção,boa carbonatação;no aroma malte tostado,caramelo,notas terrosas e frutadas;sabor inicial com perfil terroso,notas herbáceas,leve picante,finalizando com dulçor do malte que se mantem no retrogosto,álcool notado mas bem inserido. Cerveja regular,o final longo e adocicado prejudicou o conjunto e a drinkability,me decepcionou um pouco,já provei Bierre de Guarde melhores.

F: huge frothy white head, latter make a thin film.
C: clear amber colour.
A: malt and very fine hops, hints of grass, yeast.
T: a little sweet but not too much, caramel, brown sugar, some like prunes/figs tones, dry on the palate, some woody tones, medium body, good carbonation, I don’t know much about French beers but this is worth to try if a bit overrated.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
’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.

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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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)
