MiP (14562) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 22, 2006
Bottle. Sweet aroma, vinous, hint of spices. Clear golden colour. Semi-stable white head, leaving lace. OK flavour, but a bit anonymous. Quite clean for the style, with a little spici- and yeastiness. Medium bitterness, dry finish.

brokensail (14045) - San Leandro, California, USA - SEP 4, 2012
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.

bhensonb (12968) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 11, 2009
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.

(Noogfest2) Clear golden body with medium white head. Aroma is moderately sweet, bubblegum, some banana, light herb. Taste is medium sweet, bubblegum, some clove, light banana, herb. Light-medium body, some crispness. Seems like a Hefeweizen/Biere de Garde hybrid.

imdownthepub (11965) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2005
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.

FatPhil (11836) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 9, 2007
330ml bottle. Deep yellow, frothy head which dissipates. Sweet and lightly spicy aroma, corriander maybe. A tad fizzy on the tongue, but otherwise pleasant sweet light malty palate. Light grainy taste, wheaty even, and a very crisp bitter finisb. Slightly alcoholic, but not imposingly so.
