3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
One of the better Biere de Garde’s that I’ve had. The flavor is a little muted, but pleasant. It blends caramel sweetness with hints of Flemish Red/Brown character. Just sour enough to keep it interesting. Full mouthfeel. Yeasty, astringent. Smooth.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
One of the best de Gardes so far. Thick and full bodied with a nice fruity mixture of aromas combined with a nice mouthfeel, some balanced carbo and that high ABV in its background is a good choice. Thumbs up.
