Dredd (686) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - OCT 11, 2006
Great beer. Lovely appearence and lots of estery flavours with a nice bitter finish. Alcohol in this is well balanced in this one and has a nice cleanliness to it which makes this a very pleasent beer indeed.

strings (377) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 8, 2006
Bottle in Avignon. Good for drinking in a park, with a spread of cheese and crackers (until the ranger comes along and scolds you in French for a bit). Nice and smooth with a good bit of fruitiness.

Stefano (1864) - Esbjerg, DENMARK - OCT 1, 2006
Golden with a good white head like a freshly poured pils. Flavour wise it has that yeast start and orange flavours like most balgium beers have. A little alcoholic touch in the end.

Bottle @ Taverne St Germain. Orangey golden body with frothy white head. Light yeasty and spicey taste, well carbonated, alcohol not really noticeable. Cheers

UPDATED: JUL 2, 2010 Can brought back from a trip to the Auvergne by Mrs H. Definitely not in hand luggage. Thank you, my dear. Clear golden colour with a fluffy white head. Aroma has sweetness and yeast. Taste is fruity, perhaps orange, and alcoholic. Sweetness and sourness is followed by a bitter finish. A bit too much carbonation. Otherwise excellent. 2.7.10. Bottle. Underarm malt aroma. Less fruit than before and more rough malts, and perhaps a sharper impression of bitterness. Last rating was generous. Rated: 5,3,6,4,13:3.1

Veer (362) - Landskrona, SWEDEN - JUN 16, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2007 Yay, finally found the notes, so here it goes:
Aroma: fruit, banana, passionfruit, malt, spices, hops, gooseberry, candisugar, flowery.
Appearance: clear yellow with white foam. It looks like an ordinary pale lager.
Flavour: rural/rustic, sweet, unbalanced, strangely bitter (as in bitter in a strange way), very musty, sourish.
Palate: rough, slightly slimy, soft, long.

gearbike (512) - West Bloomfield, Michigan, USA - JUN 12, 2006
75cl corcked bottle in Malaucene France. A bit bland for a Biere de Garde. Taste and looks more like some type of blonde beer. However it is very smooth and refreshing.

SpringsLicker (3115) - Tennessee, USA - JUN 7, 2006
Sampled at Noogfest. Clear light gold with a quickly fading white head. Fruity, honey aroma. A high level of carbonation makes this one rather spritzy. Some sourness in the finish.

Golden coloured, thick white head. Slight peppery aroma with some yeasty hints. Yeast, malt and fruits in flavour, mostly orange. A little herbal. Some notes of hops. Slight bitter finish.
