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.

Bottle. Huge tan head over a clear red-amber body. Excellent lacing. Aroma-taste of brown sugar, dried fruit, leather, a hint of spices balanced, with a slightly metallic-minerally finish. Light to medium bodied.

- Grain and bready sweet malts. Bit hazy copper with a rich beige head. Slight sour bitterness, caramel and bready malts, booze and fruity finish. Dry in the end and actually quite nice

Clear amber color with minimal white head. Sweet bready, malty, aroma with hints of dried fruits (dates, raisins, cherries). Strong acidic fruit flavors with malt and a bit of bitterness in the finish. Decently carbonated, fairly soft mouthfeel. Pretty good stuff.

Is very acidy. Has quite a bite. Not hoppy and a bit of a malty going on. Julie says meh. She gives a 1.2

I had higher hopes for this. Amber pouur with an off white head. Aromas of spices and dark fruits. The taste is much the same with a hint of molasses.
