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

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 (3158) - 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.

This Biere de Garde pours a pale yellow gold color form a 750ml bottle. Small sized white foamy head. Aroma is musty and tart. A medium bodied Biere de Garde. Malts are fruity and sweet. Hops are earthy and slightly spicy. Nice balance. Smooth taste. Lots of sweetness, but not as sweet as ones would think with all that honey. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and dry. Aftertaste is sweet.

Golden, nice white head. Floral notes in the aroma, lime and some wheat is there as well. Malty flavor, some yeast, hoppy and a quite bitter finish.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - MAY 24, 2006
Poured a clear yellow color with a small off-white head. Sweet fruity malt aroma with notes of apples, yeast and crackers. The flavor was sweet with light fruit. Dry finish, fizzy mouthfeel, and lightly warming.

brentfeesh (1207) - Mansfield, Ohio, USA - MAY 22, 2006
Sampled at Noogfest-II. Thanks for Boutip for the trade. Golden and hazy pour with a white head. Yeasty bubblegum aroma. Sweet. The flavor is yeasty, with Belgian candy sweetness. Banana, hints of spice and honey. Good. Creamy with nice carbonation that lightens up what could have been an overly heavy body. Again, not what I expected but is was good.

Shag (2622) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAY 22, 2006
A cloudy yellow appearance. An apricot and grassy aroma. The flavor is rather tame with some hay and lemons being the prodominate taste. Very easy drinking but not complex.
