Dark golden beer with an extra onctuous off white head. Lightly spiced malt aroma with light hops. In mouth, sweet malt with nuttyness, scotch notes, and warming alcohol. Light vanilla and wood notes develop later. Very nice. My dad says: uplifting! From Joanette, 2.69$ a bottle.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (330ml). via trade with Lubiere. Poured slightly hazy brass with a huge feathery-foamy white head, lots of sticky lacing. Aroma of yeast, wheat flour, pungent herbs, grassy hops, alcohol. Nice sweetish grassy flavour, yeast, spices, light malt, alcohol, decently funky - alcoholic, lively and sticky mouthfeel - a little boozy, but really nice, a yeasty, herbal treat.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2007 The pour reveals a clear orangey copper color with a thick bubbly offwhite head that leaves fair lacing on the glass. Good aroma of spicy and toasty malt with some mustyness. Very good flavor of spicy and biscuity malt with fruits, the hops are detectable only because of the bitterness in the finish and the alcohol is well hidden by the ample, generous body. The palate is spectacular with a thick and ample body and a soft and comfy texture, the carbonation though is a bit too strong, it kind of ruins the perfection of body and texture. A very interesting and well made bière de garde.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy amber-orangeish hue, with a frothy white head, with caramelized malt, toffeeish note, hint of fruitiness in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a sweet toasty malt character, a faint floral hops note, with a warming accent, leading towards a nice warmth and hop bittering finish.
