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.

Kittenbieer (63) - LYON, FRANCE - SEP 30, 2016
Dégustée avec mon Appiantiqua dans des verres "La Goudale".Belle robe jaune-dorée avec une fine mousse peu persistante.Le nez offre des arômes de froment et houblon.Le goût est dans le prolongement des arômes avec quelques notes légèrement épicées.La fin de bouche est sèche et houblonnée.Une bière agréable et légère cependant inférieure à la Ch’nord ou la Ch’ti!

appiantiqua (67) - Lyon, FRANCE - SEP 29, 2016
Goûtée avec mon petit Kittenbieer dans un verre "La Goudale". Robe jaune avec une très fine mousse volatile et une très faible carbonatation. Le nez est porté sur des arômes de céréale et de froment. Le goût est malté avec une petite amertume. L’arrière bouche ajoute une petite sensation sucrée un peu lourde qui affaiblit légèrement l’ensemble. Une bonne bière du Nord mais qui manque un peu de relief.

Terminus (3595) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 23, 2016
Bottle purchased at a super market in Paris, Pours bright crystal clear orange huge with a small soapy white head and sparse lacing. Nose is musty, slightly earthy, barnyard, lite phenols. A bit boring flavor wise but still shows the traditional De Garde character-earthy, slihgtly phenolic, and medium carbonation. Long finish of lite fruit, earthy malts and some nice barnyard yeast twang going on. A fairly entry level example of the style, but its a decent beer nonetheless.

Bosskie (764) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 31, 2016
Cristal-clear copper-coloured beer, luminous, with a white head. Smell is malty white pepper coriander and metallic honey sweetness. Hint of mint. Taste is bready watery, nice bitterness, well balanced against subtle sweetness. Hint of honey. Astringent finish. Quite OK.

aleigator (804) - GERMANY - AUG 23, 2016
Yields an amber-golden color with a medium sized, froth, white head. Smells of flowery, slightly tart yeast with a hint of wet grass to it, coated up by white bread dough. Reveals a subtle clove and pepper spice note once the beer warms up. Has a medium carbonation, which turns up the volume after the swallow, finishing effervescent and refreshing with a noteable warmth, once the liquid goes down to the belly. Tastes of calming white bread malts with an uprising, biting spiciness, inheriting a sweet, sugary note, opening up the palate to cakey malts. Finishes with rock sugar, bitter cardamom and dried herbs among an aqueous softness. Tastes like a lighter Triple, which got a prominent spiciness to it, defining the taste while the beer remains pleasantly refreshing.
