2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Originally rated March 2008. Seasonal offering at the LCBO, with a best before date that is written: 14/12/2008 on back label. Pours a clear golden colour with a white foamy head, that disappears at a medium pace. What is clearly noticeable, is that this brew has hardly any carbonation, and after a few minutes, no bubbles are to be found. Malt is dominant in the aroma, with a little grass and mild honey. The mouthfeel is pretty flat, but has a little stickiness in the mouth. Grain malt is most of the flavour, with the mild grass and honey coming out in the aftertaste. The ring of lacing stays all along. Not a bad beer, with a light difference to other beers that look the same, but nothing too outstanding either.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle 75cl. A clear light amber beer with low head. A very basic beer, slightly fruity and malty, just too bitter, very disappointing. Nothing really interesting, just sweet.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle with caged cork. Pours a glowing gold colour, very clear with a tall white head that lasts. Aroma and flavour of sweet caramel apples and light spiciness. Crisp finish and light on the palate, but the maltiness still finds a way to shine through into the finish. The combo of the rich malt flavours and floral and fruity finish made this really enjoyable.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Lemongrass aroma, not strong. Clear golden, medium head. Light body, grassy, slightly sweet. Refreshing and enjoyable, but generally weak.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle @ home. Fairly pale yellow appearance with an off white head. Aroma is a like a pale malty Pale Lager. Body is somewhat thin, a bit sour, and pale malty with absolutely nothing reminiscent of a Biere de Garde. Without a doubt, the poorest attempt at a Biere de Garde that I’ve ever tasted. That side apart, it’s a decent, somewhat sour pale malty beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fresh and clean smelling with light honey, doughy malts and dusty yeast (I’m surprised this isn’t a lager actually). Lightly sweet with a light herbal bitterness, some crispy malts and a touch of orange in the finish.
