Maria (10164) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 10, 2007
Nice amber, OK head and good lacing. The aroma has notes of spice (coriander). The flavour has notes of citrus, spice, malt and hops, and I like the balance in the beers from this brewery. They are uncomplicated and full-bodied in a nice and very drinkable way.

750 ml bottle. Clear, golden/orange body with medium white head. Aroma has some bread, yeast and citrus. Flavor is nice, fruity, smooth almost a bit floral. Some bitterness in aftertaste. A smooth and gentle beer.

ALLOVATE (2419) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 23, 2006
Bought a bottle of this from a supermarket in Montmartre, Paris. Surprised to find this was the only beer available over 3.5% out of about thirty - very strange.
Back at our hostel I had to settle for a clear plastic cup and with no fridge available, into the cup it went. Bright, pale, yellowy gold, well charged with a decent, rocky white head forming, holding and lacing well. Licks of sweet honey, wholemeal and barnyard grains on the nose with just a little pepper and sour malt. Grainy, gritty and malty in the mouth. Floral rasp across the sides, sweetness of honey in front, good depth of peppery spice and peaking alcohol in back. Finish is spicy, phenolic and warming. Quite nice I thought, though stretched for options in Paris. Ended the night well at least. (75cL, no use by, my notes read ’goedale’ so I’m glad I finally located it!)

75cl bottle. A pleasant, fresh, clean beer but not too much to write home about. grassy hops, but slightly metallic aftertaste.

jehoey (765) - Shippensburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 8, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2006 pours a goldn yellow with a nice looking bubbly head that laces very well. the aroma is peppery, with some malty elements. flavor is much the same with a leathery note. Biere de grade seems to resemble a triple in many ways: nice mouthfeel: better than Ch ti

lgklotet (432) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 6, 2006
Bottle. Golden straw colour. Thin aroma and taste. Seemed like a gueuze-funky lager or thin ale.. This is my first biere de garde and I really hope this style will pick up from here because this was not really too interesting.

Dezzilu (226) - Whitmore Lake, Michigan, USA - NOV 2, 2006
Beer poured with a golden color and nice white head. The smell was surprisingly alcoholic and awkwardly overpowering. The flavor was somewhat flat and unimpressive and left me an ever so slightly tinney aftertaste. A truly typical French beer that leaves me saying "what’s the point". Extra kudos for the sweet, majestic bottle.

Golden. White head. Floral fresh aroma followed my malty sweet aroma and typical french perfumy dishwater finish.

Dredd (690) - 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.
