Kinz (3709) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - OCT 4, 2008
Light orange in appearance, decent head. Aroma was bready, yeasty, and faintly floral. Flavor was essentially a match initially. As it warmed, a faintly phenolic note came out, just a touch of rubber over top of clove. Sort of like a Belgian ale meets a very meek hefe. Not bad, but sort of forgettable in some ways.

jefcon (1604) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - SEP 27, 2008
Lively head and an opaque orange-gold color. Some large-bead lacing. Aromas of peach and paper, developing a yeasty must. Semi-sweet and juicy tart fruit -- apricot, peach and lemon, made bright by alcohol. Medium weight. Plenty of carbonation and character.

Bottle. Old rating. Golden clear colour with thinnish white head. head that left nice lacing on the glass. Well balanced between malt, hop and yeast aromas.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - SEP 25, 2008
Bottle: This poured a clear bronze body with a substantial head and plenty of lacing. The aroma was sweet pale malt, orchard fruit, and a light floral bouquet. This is not a very complex drink, tasting much as it smelled, but it was somehow satisfying. Throughout the higher ABV was well hidden.

Trooper11 (468) - Suffolk, Virginia, USA - SEP 22, 2008
Huge foamy monster head atop a clean filtered amber brew. Great inviting aroma. Fresh grassy with a hint of alspice. Good body, sweet at first taste but subtle spice and warmth.

750, corked and baled. Easily the best boring beer I’ve had in a long time. Best as in most pleasant to drink, anyway, which may have more to do with its being 7.8% and my being wiped from the gym, but, anyway, this beer shows no major flaws. Pours a hazy, burnished-copper medium amber with a sudsy, tightly bubbly platinum blonde that falls quickly to a light ring of foam. Mild, sweet, grassy nose. Light body, fairly crisp, active carb. Not watery but definitely not a big body. Some grassy and floral notes come through on the mid-palate, but, despite having little else to keep them company, they don’t make the beer cloy at all. Mild, fairly neutral finish. This beer’s only problem is that it’s too polite to show any real personality. Probably the greatest 7.8% super-session beer ever, in that regard--you’re not going to get tired of it. You’ll forget you’re drinking it long before that.

austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - SEP 17, 2008
Orangey golden, small foamy white head. Very plain, alcoholic aroma, little wheat and spices. Sweet alcoholic, softly malty and spicy flavor. Little wheat. Medium bodied, strong carbonation. Plain and alcoholic, could be better ice cold.

JoeMcPhee (9244) - 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.

Pours a clear gold body with a thin, white head. Round, soft, mouthfeel. Chardonnay-like fruit flavors. Alcoholic finish. Pretty good.
