Color is a hazy dark orange with quite a big head. Smell is ok, taste pretty good, lightly bitter. Good body and nice carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bouteille: Copper coloured, a bit unclear, big and stable loose off-white head, fruity-caramelly nose (almost a bit vinous) with a robust boppy counterpart; moderate to solid sweet-bitter flavour, full bodied; bisquity-honeyish finish balanced by distinctive hops and followed by a slight alcohol-burn in the aftertaste. Nice brew...

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The yeast taste predominates and it is more of a decent Blegium produced outside of France. Reminded me more of a Unibroue than a beer de garde, that flavour being understated. Quite drinkable, some grain and creaminess in mouthfeel.. Nice yeasty head and pleasant aroma.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
750mL c&c Gavroche Red label thanks to wickedpete at Shenandoah Throwdown. The pour is a clear tea amber topped by a giant, beige head. Ice cream rockiness persists. Awesome appearance. The nose is odd- candy corn and sugar moving to some odd metals and iron. Taste is big candy corn, mild soap, malt forward but not rich and doughy. Lemon finish. Perhaps some toasted malt qualities. Unimpressed compared to Page 24 Biere de Gardes.

Cloudy yellow. French yeast in the aroma and flavor, which gives a light spice quality as well. Dry malt in the finish.

UPDATED: OCT 26, 2011 Bottled. A mid brown coloured beer with a thick whitish head with an angel delight consistency. The aroma is malty and fruity with light berries (maybe cranberries) noted. The taste shows signs of caramelized fruit, maybe strawberries, whilst the alcohol is well hidden. Score 2.9
Subsequent rating scored 3.2. Average becomes 3.0

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml bottle. Hazy orange-amber beer with a thick creamy off-white head. Sweet toasty malt, some peppery notes and a pronounced dusty character as well. Sweet, slightly fruity (apple/peach) and a distinctly earthy, UK-type of maltiness. Flavour is also quite fruity, soft but persistent earthy/herbal bitterness. Okay beer, but not great.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice 330ml bottle design. Amber coloured body with light toffee aroma. A huge white cap that looks attractive in the glass. Surprisingly moderate palate compared to its strength in alcohol. Fresh apple flavour with a good share of malt and a bitter finish. Hidden alcohol. The flavours blossom as the beer warms up.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle, 33cl) Hazy, amber colour with a big and loose, slightly tanned foamy head. A bit cheesy yeast-character with hints of cara-malt and nuts in the background. Moderately sweet flavour, medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Nutty cara-malty taste, accompanied by mildly sugary notes and a very subtle fruit-character; sweet and slightly bitter finish, again with nutty and subtle fruity accents. Nice but not directly my kind of taste. 08.VI.12
