(bottle) Bottle started to foam once opened, although did not appear to be infected. Poured a red-amber colour with a curdled beige head.
Aroma of yeast and some spice. First taste was a surprising combination of rich malt with bitter aftertaste. Hot (fusel?) alcohol. I’m not getting any of the fruit flavours other tasters have noted. This is my first bier-de-garde and I have to say it has underwhelmed me. Not too sure why someone would bother to make this beer, it has nothing outstanding IMO.

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.
