imdownthepub (10258) - 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.

madsberg (10186) - Søborg, DENMARK - AUG 6, 2004
Bottled: Golden coloured. Clear. Medium sized white head. Aroma is light spiced, sweet, yeasty and has some malt charchters. Flaovour is yeast and sweet with a strong alchol note. Has some vague fruity notes. Is light sweet in the end.

Maria (10158) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 10, 2007
Nice amber, OK head and good lacing. The aroma has notes of spice (coriander). The flavour has notes of citrus, spice, malt and hops, and I like the balance in the beers from this brewery. They are uncomplicated and full-bodied in a nice and very drinkable way.

Lubiere (9999) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 28, 2003
Nice nose of spice with a nice amber robe. The mouthfeel is malt, wheat and spices, between a weisse and a pils. Not as much body as typical Biere de Garde I tried but still an enjoyable little beer.

FatPhil (9359) - 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.

hopscotch (9163) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 29, 2008
Bottle... Clear yellow ale with a mid-sized, creamy, white head. Great retention. Pale grains and spices (lavender and coriander) dominate the olfactory system. Medium to full-bodied and syrupy with prickly carbonation. Sweet, spicy flavor up front; herbal bitterness on the backside. Spicy, bittersweet finish.
