Pours a cloudy golden color with a tall white head. The nose is primarily made up of sweet malt notes with some apple and pear fruitiness. A touch of yeast and very faint earthy and grassy hop notes. Tastes sort of just sweet and muddled. Mostly biscuit malt, bread, and a bit of toffee. Some fruit notes of apple, pear, and banana. A touch of alcohol and grassy hop flavor on the finish.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, c&c, from Ledger’s. Pours golden amber with a large frothy white head. Aromas of light stone fruit and yeast. Medium body with frothy, biting carbonation. Flavor is lighter fruit, a touch of malt sweetness, with some astringency. There is some earthiness, but it is very well covered. So it’s more ale than biere de garde. Leaving that issue it’s a very tasty and drinkable beer. It’s far from sweet, and the bitter is not strong. It’s just pleasant.

Bottled, 750 ml corked, filtered. Golden amber with light bubbly head. Blonde and hoppy, a delightful French Biere de Garde, which is not something I normally say. Emphasis on hops, or houblon in French, dry and bittering. I really enjoyed this.
