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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
