“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

MBison (548) - Southern Highlands, - OCT 19, 2009
Bottle 355ml. Poured golden orange with a slight haze and a dense, frothy, white head which was mostly diminishing. Aroma was of orange zest with floral hops, mandarin, lime juice, yeasty notes and hints of fennel seeds. Flavor was an extremely light bitterness with bready malts, oranges, lemon zest, dried pears, cinnamon, light notes of wild yeasty and a touch of grain in the finish. Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation, a creamy mouthfeel, watery texture and an average length finish.

cloudy gold color with a thick white head; spicy aroma; a well balanced French farmhouse style ale with fruit and spice notes and a sweet malt background

Very hazy, golden. Not much of a hop aroma ...or flavor for that matter. Sweet but not overpowering.

hotstuff (4389) - Indiana, USA - SEP 11, 2013
Rated on 4-28-2009 (Bottle) When poured, this beer presents a small head with good retention, transparent yellow body, visible carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The Aroma is malty, spice notes, crisp, hops, sweet, and fruity. The Taste echoes the Aroma along with tasting somewhat dry. The Palate is fizzy and this beer is light-medium bodied. Overall, this beer is relatively easy to drink and is refreshing in its own way. This is a beer that did not have that WOW factor for me and therefore not a beer I will drink again.

MaltOne (254) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 18, 2012
A little out of season but here goes... Pours a clear (unless you select to include the slight amount of yeast sediment available) golden yellow, effervescent, and a substantial, cream colored head which subsides but doesn’t disappear. Aroma is faint, bread/yeast, earthy with a hint of grapefruit/citrus. Flavor is mostly malty, with a nod towards sweet and and edge of dry hops. Medium to light body, nice lingering flavors. Overall, this beer fits my general tendancies towards a maltier brew. I could easily make this a regular.

Refreshing with a long, slightly warming finish. Good choice for warm weather.

Hazy dark yellow color. Lots of carbonation. Not much distinguishable on the nose, somewhat earthy. Some banana, pepperiness, and clove. Small maltiness, but this one is rather bland. Finishes dry.
