bartlebier (1479) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - MAY 2, 2013
75cl bottle from Leclerc Verdun. Grainy FR-Flemish stronge blonde ale with a smooth natural body but a very sharp alcoholic nose and taste that cannot wholly keep up with its exquisite natural peppery hops. Good ingredients, interesting style, sub par execution, a pity - would have fancied this as a set dinner beer given the price and 75cl bottle.

wimpyjoe (3468) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2013
Blonde lager with a distinctive north European feel. It’s nose and taste are a mix of sweet floral and soft grain combining for a smooth blonde appeal. Golden in colour with a small white head, its strength isn’t evident in its body. The only downside is some fizzy carbonation in the palate.

Smooth and rich, dark golden beer with silky head.Aroma is grass, smoke, wood, malt, sourdough...complex. But it gets better...taste is butterscotch, malt, butter, caramel, hay....again, really nice. This is on the "1001 Beers t o Try Before You Die" list....

Despite the surprisingly low ratings of this beer, I think this is easily one of the best de Gardes I’ve had. This was the first beer I was truly impressed with on my trip into Franche Comte. Bright, hoppy, and remarkably drinkable. Floral aroma with some hay and grass at the end.

dreadnord (1013) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 28, 2013
Pours clear golden yellow with a very small white head. The nose is straw, corn sugar, light spice like cloves and cardamom. Pastries. The taste is mostly sweet, with a mild tart and a mild bitter. The mouthfeel is crisp and clean, the body is light and finish is long. Tastes better than I expected.

hotstuff (4058) - Indiana, USA - MAR 25, 2013
Backlog rating 1-14-2009 (Corked and caged bottle) This beer poured a small white fizzy head that had poor retention, transparent body, fast rising carbonation, one ring of lacing, and a golden hue. The Aroma is sweet, spicy and coriander. The Taste is sweet, spicy and bitter. The Palate is spritzy and this is a medium bodied beer. Overall, I did not enjoy the taste of this beer so it is not a beer that I will drink again.
