COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
“Garde Dog” Biere de Garde is unfiltered with a hazy, deep golden to light copper appearance. Brewed with domestically grown French Hops and German Pilsner Malts, it gives craft beer drinkers a very enjoyable, light-bodied, subtlety sweet beer with toasty malt undertones. Garde Dog is the perfect compleiment to lighter fare such as seafood, salads, cheese and Middle Eastern and Indian foods

I have no idea what Biere de Garde is supposed to be, so this should be good. Lots of foamity foam. Kind of an alcohol aroma. Sour mouth. Unsure.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 28, 2012
In bottle at the Delirium Cafe, Brussels. Pours a dark golden colour with a fair white head. Aroma of alcohol, candy sugar, caramel and alcohol. Similar flavours with lingering candy sugar and alcohol. Mild carbonation and CO2 prickle with an oily mouth-feel. OK.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - MAY 17, 2012
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a hazy light gold with a rocky and active white head. The nose has a bit of yeast, coriander, straw, and dry grass. The flavor is grassy with light Belgian yeast, bubblegum, spicy hop notes and a slight metallic bit. Light in body with very high carbonation (a bit too much in fact) but short, clean finish. Not bad, but it lacks some of the farmhouse character in more traditional examples.

alobar (2868) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 12, 2012
Cloudy straw yellow color with a white soapy head. Aroma of lemon, grass, and yeast. Lemon and grass flavor with hint of Belgian yeast. Creamy. Decent beer for a style I care little for.

This is my first of the style. I know this isn’t the best representation, but it sure is the most accessible. Poured into a white wine glass. Pours a translucent dark gold. A large inch-thick white head tops it off and retains extremely well, as it is constantly fed by the ever-rising bubbles. The nose is ripe with floral tones, buttery bread, yeast, subtle spice. Really lively mouth. Bubbly pop at each sip. The flavor profile really reminds me of a mild Saison, which I guess is sort of the point. Yeast-y, but not overly so. Actually, there’s some nice pale fruit flavors pulling through, mixing well with the husky dry back end. This is a decent drink right here. My interest is only piqued now. I enjoy a Saison here and there, and I will add this to the list of a style I will revisit time and again

marcus (6772) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 20, 2012
Bottle from Total Wine, Sacramento. Pours cloudy golden wtih a massive off-white head and a fruity aroma. There is a sweet pilsner flavor with a strong yeast presence and a slightly sour finish.

BVery (6961) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - APR 19, 2012
Bottle. Hazy bright yellow pour with a white head. Nose is Belgian yeast, grain, and malt. Moderate palate. Taste is light and refreshing - lemon, grass, yeast, and malt. Nice brew.

Goodgrief (1811) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - APR 11, 2012
Golden pour, clear with nice one finger head. Grainy aroma and flavor with funkiness aplenty. Good style representation here. Solid effort.

Trev (1960) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - APR 6, 2012
Bottle: Pour is orange/gold with a thick white foamy head. aroma is malty, slightly grainy, biscuity, light fruit and earthiness to it. grassy hop. Flavour has a light bready sweetness to it. mown hay/grassy hop presence and some tartness to the finish. Overall a very drinkable beer. Would go very well with many food pairings as I see they recomend.
