Bottle @ fonefan tasting. Nice head with good duration. Color is amber. Aroma and taste are yeast, fruits, nuts, caramel, malt, hops and notes of candy sugar.

RichardGretton (4229) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2012
Bottle. Cloudy browny coloured beer with a very strong head. The aroma is mildly malty and roasted, and the flavour is very well roasted with a fortified feel and hints of spice. Overall a very nice malty beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MartinT (7746) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 31, 2012
My Bottom Line:
Earthy, rural breezes brush this Bière de Garde’s nutty, toasted malts, as strawberries angles suggest depth.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-There is barely any foam atop the misty red.
-The yeast pour adds more character.
-Hops are hard to perceive, adding very mild herbal, peppery notes in the end.
-This is undercarbonated, decreasing drinkability.
-.Malt flavors are well defined throughout.

Bottle.

Cloudy brown beer. Frothy white head. Soft frothy palate. Creamy malt with with a mildy sour caramel streak. Dry soft finish with a trace of aniseed. Typical French beer - soft and sweet and that’s fine by me!

Lubiere (9790) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 30, 2010
A hazed dark amber to brown ale with a thick moka head, bottle gushed a bit, little floaties. A very nice aroma of fruit esters, caramel sugars, smooth alcohol, treacle. In mouth, a very belgian interpretation, with loads of caramel malt, fruity esters, burned nuts, herbal notes, smooth and pleasant. 750 ml from Cave a Bulles, bought in April 2010.

Rustyham (1718) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - SEP 6, 2010
Lots of sediment, sickly amber color. Aroma is sweet and malty, flavor is a very bubbly amber malt with butter. Typical amber ale, but slightly lighter. Bottle from Mmmckay at the PreLabor Day Beer Tasting.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 5, 2010
Pours medium amber with an ivory head. Aroma of faint belgian phenols. Lighter side of medium bodied with fine carbonation. Flavor of caramel and brown sugar, countered by mild herbal hops. Nothing exciting, but not horrible either .

MmmcKay (1051) - Brentwood, Tennessee, USA - SEP 5, 2010
Doesn’t really taste like a beer Biere de Garde. More like an ordinary amber ale. Malty and sweet. Not offensive in the least. But nothing to remember. OK

Barrios (1243) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 5, 2010
Pours a beige , fizzy, lasting head with a hazy, murky brown body. Aromas of red fruit and yeast. Flavor is red fruit, sweet, lightly toasted malt, hops to balance. Finish is a bit dry.

DeanF (1662) - Nunavut, CANADA - SEP 1, 2010
Stormy bubbles in an amber-brown muddy body, lots of fluffy beige head on top. Aroma is barley, chocolate, bread. Taste is a soft mix of malts and lots of alcohol on the back end, sour and dry finish. A really good bière de garde, but not the best.
