Golden yellow colour with a small white head. Smells some cheese, moldy, malts, some yeast and just very slightly hoppy. Tastes water, iron, malts. Quite watery for its 7,2%.. Would’ve guessed its a regular 5%. Overall Ok

330ml bottle (i think) from a bar in Paris. Appearance was boring but the aroma wasn’t. Smelt extremely fruity. Lemons, peaches and nectarines. Taste was disappointing and makes for unusual scoring.

Flaske 0,33l fra U-Express, Nice. Verandakos i rue Rossini 10 Okt 12. Lys gylden med et høyt hvitt skum som fester seg til glasset. Svakt fruktig aroma med litt malt. Smaken har tydelig alkoholpreg. Svakt syrlig med innslag av krydder. Avslutter tørt & litt bittert.

Cerveza rubia con sabor dulce y ligeramente especiado, no muy amarga. Se le nota el alcohol al final.

Amber with a sticky, foamy, lacy, white, lasting head. Smells of toasted malt, alcohol and a bit of conaque. Some light cinnemon. Smooth light frothy body. Very smooth. Tastes of caramel and malt with a spirit finish. Some alcohol and ash on the dry hoppy grass finish. Frothy and tummy warming

Orange tinged yellow, fluffy white head. Yeasty nose, fruity esters, malts, dryness, some nutty sweetness. Taste is spicy-sweet citrus, malt, herbal notes. Estery and slightly boozy finish. Fairly smooth mouthfeel, medium body, flat carbonation. Smells a bit more interesting than it actually is, but it is intriguing.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Straightforward, Belgian PA aroma -- tannic, sweetish, a little caramel, slightly floral, a little vanilla, slight banana and female sweat. Good 750ml bottle, handwork label. Candied, sweet, pear/pomaceous flavors, a little astringent, tannic. Slick, medium to slightly dense body, effervescent. This was not terribly complex. but really hit a sweet spot that I have for bitters and belgian PAs. On top of that, I got this at a clearance price of $1.99/750ml -- $1.99/750 ml is not a terrible price for malt liquor, much less a beer of this sophistication. Market Square Liquors, Timberlane.

Bottle. ABV 7,2%. Slightly hazy light copper color with a thick foamy white head. Aroma of yeast, sour fruits and wheat. Dry, sour taste. Some bitterness. My first Biére de Garde so I don’t know what to expect.

Not bad. Looks nice. Smells ok, a little bread. Tastes ok - full mouthfeel. But it’s only ever going to be ok.

33cl bottle @ home [thanks to my parents for bringing this from holiday] shared with Dutchdrebus. Clear golden color, small off-white head. Smell malts, some sweetness, lightly a hint of sweetish wood. Taste malts, lightly sweet, a hint of hops. Low to medium carbo, a bit low bodied for a 7.2%ABV beer, but quite decent overall.
