NonOperational (55) - - JUL 20, 2013
The best of the Biere de Gardes I’ve tried. It tasted how French stubbies used to taste to me before I got into good beer, and started to find them disgusting. YBasically it’s a very straightforward lager, amped-up to 7% with prominent, bitter/herbal noble hops and and a very dry, cerealy finish.

From the very old notes, hence this is not a real rating, but more just a mark to myself that I have tried this at one point. Didn’t really like some of the flavor of this one, alcohol was also way too strong.

Kristall-König (2498) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - AUG 18, 2015
Weinartiger Geruch, Traube, Hefe, Aprikose. Beginnt süßlich-hefig. Mitte Gewürze, Hefe, wirkt streng. Abgang bitter, hefig-streng, prickelnd, alkoholisch. Gut, gutes Bier, was für Giscard d’Estaing.

joeryan (8) - FRANCE - AUG 1, 2015 does not count
When one sees dextrose and fructose as ingredients one wonders if Goudale can rate as a beer or as a soda. There really should be a separate classification for beers that would meet the criteria of the Reinheitsgebot .

bnokk (286) - Ohio, USA - JUL 23, 2015
July 2015, bottled in 2005. APPEARANCE – super light golden color. White head laces nicely, but dissipates quickly NOSE – grassy and slightly earthy hoppy scents. FLAVOR – first thing I noticed is the good mouthfeel, kind of like a stout. Light flavor with something I can’t quite identify. Could be the contribution of the wheat or rice. NOTES – the flavors of French Terroir comes through.

Prima biere de garde. Geen idee hoe het er uitziet. ..tis donker. Smaak en mondgevoel zijn goed. Fijn ook dat het een grote fles is :-)
