2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
C&C 750, best by 09.28.09. Gold with a white head. Mildly sweet nose, toasty malt and fruit atop yeast. Lightly toasted malt flavors, seems a bit wheaty somehow, lightly spiced and a bit of banana. Odd. Didn’t much care for it, but seems well made.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Hmmmm mi aspettavo peggio quando l’ho comprata, speravo meglio quando l’ho versata: a vedersi pareva proprio carina. Sarò io che non apprezzo lo stile? Dato che neppure la decantata 3monts mi ha fatto impazzire, non è da escludere questa possibilità; aroma strano, fin troppo strano: disinfettante. Sapore metallicissimo non troppo dolce né sensibilmente amaro. Mah... la bottiglia è molto graziosa, peccato che avevano appiccicato il bollino del prezzo sull’etichetta e rimuovendolo si è strappata... ne comprerò un’altra? Può darsi; però non credo che per il contenuto valga la pena...

330 ml bottle from Systembolaget. Golden color with a pretty nice, dying head. Smells wonderful of orange and clove. Flavor is dominated by a nice malty sweetness, very balanced, with taste of orange, citrus, banana and caramel. This one is very underrated. I will definitely buy this again, both due to the good taste and the low price.

Tallahassee, Fl. - Market Square Liquors - 750 ml cork-caged bottle. Dark golden, slightly cloudy pour with a soft, pillowy white head that sticks around. The full glass just says - "refreshment". Fresh aroma with hints of clove, butter and vanilla. Full bodied flavor with some caramel sweetness, some raw cake mix, pears and butterscotch and a back end of vanilla. Thick, rich, creamy mouthfeel. Very impressed with this one - very underrated in my opinion. Really hit the spot on a hot day.

Biere de Garde? More like a rich, French Pilsener. Very soft cabonation, which is thin but retentive. Has a certain sharpness like cheddar cheese. A unique beer. Reminds me of a French cousin to Germany’s Mahr’s Pilsener. Not spicy. Just a very smooth, grassy blend of Saison and Pilsener qualities.

Yellow orange pour, nice white head with a touch of lacing. Hop forward nose, grassy with a hint of vanilla. Flavor is grainy and dry with grassy hop notes. Body is soft with mild carbonation. Kind of bitter and dry on the finish.
