hayduke (3767) - Eureka, California, USA - AUG 27, 2008
The set me back $9.75 at the North Coast Coop in Arcata, CA. Poured a very clear dark gold, with fat white head and great lacing. Nose of caramel malts and ripe fruit. Smooth mouthfeel. Flavor tends toward the malts and the finish is slightly sweet. OK once, but too expensive for this quality to drink again.

Thick white, frothy head. Clear golden color. Fairly complex but a bit light on body.

nuplastikk (5071) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 3, 2008
750ml corked bottle. Golden-orange color with a thick head. Sweet, creamy taste. Very smooth, exceptionally so. Light meady notes with a light dry, hoppy balance. Very delicate mouthfeel. This is a great Biere de Garde, vastly underrated. Excellent malt character, a perfect example of the style.

nick76 (4314) - Tampa, Florida, USA - SEP 6, 2008
The aroma is yeasty with malt and grassy hops. The appearance is golden with a large head. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall this is interesting but maybe it needs more time.

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 13, 2008
500 ml can. Canned Biere de Garde... now there’s a good idea. Very pale golden brew with a creamy white head. Aroma is lightly malty with a faint spiciness and some soft woody hops. A fairly assertive earthy/spicy bitterness. As it opens up, there is a also a soft perfumey yeastiness with a touch of mint, honey and light rosemary herbaceous flavour. Nice soft palate, light herbs and spices over a softly fruity yeastiness. This is a pretty nice beer really... sort of a strong Belgian/saison combination. Finishes quite dry.

thornecb (4826) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 25, 2008
Pours light amber into a tulip. Bright white head with medium retention recedes to skim surface leaving spider lacing. Sweet malt aromas. Crisp and sweet caramel malt upfront. Lasting alcohol finish.

heemer77 (5174) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - AUG 22, 2008
From a 750ml bottle. The large, lightly off white head leaves lots of lacing on the side of the glass. The aroma is earthy and funky with some moss. There is a lightly tart leather note. The taste has some tart prunes and finishes with salty leather. There is also a little bit of cinnamon spice. A decent brew, and very strongly flavored with soft carbonation.

verymerrymonk (413) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 12, 2008
Pours a clear gold body with a thin, white head. Round, soft, mouthfeel. Chardonnay-like fruit flavors. Alcoholic finish. Pretty good.

bierkoning (11134) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - SEP 11, 2008
Bottle. Blonde. Soft flowery citrus aroma. Sweetish grainy flowery, slightly citric flavor. Medium bodied, slightly alcoholic. Surprisingly tasty beer.
