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 (12878) - 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.

DSG (11600) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - FEB 14, 2013
Bottle sample at a tasting at Yoav’s place. Thanks Yoav. Clear reddish amber with a bubbly beige head. Aroma of earth, fruits (carambola and more), dusty notes, some malt and caramel. Sweetish malty flavor with some fruitiness, some yeast, spiciness and a drier and more spicy finish with a bit of alcohol. Over-carbonated. So-so.

MartinT (9369) - 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.

JoeMcPhee (9267) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 19, 2008
Deep amber colour with a fairly prominent corky aroma. Lightly dusty and minerally over the fairly sweet malts. Caramel, toffee and a bit of orange peel as well. Soft toffee and light pilsner malt base. Fairly low bitterness but there is a bit of butterscotch in here as well. Light lingering sweetness with a bit of fruitiness and orange citrus over the otherwise sweet maltiness. It’s kind of a strange beast, but it’s not bad at all.
