Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 9, 2010
Enjoyed from a 750ml bottle in an elongated tulip glass. The beer pours a light amber color, with a moderate off-white head. The nose shows some initial skunkyness, before transitioning to more inviting aromas of malt and subtle Belgian/Continental yeast esters. The palate replicates these items, showing Germanic malt sweetness in the approach and mid-palate, before some estery notes; the latter falling short of Trappist proportions, but fairly noticeable, just the same. Carbonation seems slightly low, but this may be more a matter of personal preference, rather than stylistic error. The finish leaves a restrained malt/ester note. Overall, a seemingly stylistically accurate beer that is pleasant, but also fairly unmemorable.

fantti (809) - FINLAND - NOV 27, 2013
Kaatuu lasiin kullankeltaisena ja kirkkaana, vaahdon ollessa saippuamainen ja jättäen vahvaa pitsiä. Haju on hunajaisen makea, voinen, kermainen sekä hieman trooppisen hedelmäinen. Maussa on voita, ruohoa ja heinää. Se on alkuun makea, mutta kuivuu puumaiseksi loppua kohti. Suutuntuma on alkuun makea, loppuun taas kuiva ja hiilihappoakin on. Mielenkiintoinen ja yllättävän moniulotteinen olut, haju on kermainen, kun maku taas on suoraviivaisempi.

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - FEB 17, 2013
A - Poured in an over sized wine glass. Clear copper with a 1 finger white head leaving a corner ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass. Very little lacing. S - Grassy yeast, bread with some honey notes, earthy grains, green apples, with some spiciness as well. T - Malty followed by a spicy citrus. Tart fruits-pears & apples. Some cereal and sour grain in the background along with mild alcohol notes. There’s also some metal present. It comes through in the aftertaste as well. The finish is tart and crisp. The metallic aftertaste of this beer bugs me. This was an ok Biere de Garde. It’s worth a try though. Serving type: bottle 08-07-2010

Clear golden beer with a light banana aroma. Flavour is banana too but milder with some bitter hop. It actually finishes surprisingly dry. Quite tasty.

GarnotingPete (777) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 11, 2013
Bière dorée, limpide et où flotte une fine écume laissant peu de dentelle au verre. Des arômes de malts pâles d’où pointent certains esters fruités et un arôme de fruits tropicaux. Peu amère et assez sucrée. Elle est lisse, de corps moyen, peu effervescente et se termine sur des notes légèrement sucrées et quelque peu astringentes

UPDATED: NOV 9, 2006 pours a goldn yellow with a nice looking bubbly head that laces very well. the aroma is peppery, with some malty elements. flavor is much the same with a leathery note. Biere de grade seems to resemble a triple in many ways: nice mouthfeel: better than Ch ti

CanCrusher (759) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - FEB 22, 2014
Can 0,50L. Light orange-golden colour, small, white, unstable head. Aroma of banana, apple, yeasts. Taste is slightly fruity sweet and it finish light bitter. Alcohol is well hidden in taste, but it warms a little. Very drinkable, but not perfect.

generallee08 (759) - New York, USA - JUN 4, 2014
Its body has a deep orange amber color with a good cloudy appearance and a tall off white head. The head quickly fades down to a thin cap which then holds on well making spotty slick lacing on the glass. The aroma is very wheaty and bready. Underneath that are some light citrusy notes of hops. The flavor has dry wheat, light grain and light bready malty notes throughout. Towards the finish a light touch of citrus hops moves in and adds some bitterness for balance. The finish is quick, snappy and dry. The palate has a medium well carbonated feel. Overall it is a very nice Biere de Garde with loads of tasty wheat maltiness. Everything else is right on par for the style.

dnoaksson (758) - , SWEDEN - FEB 3, 2009
En snäll öl som förgyller strupen med lika delar sötma och beska. Påminner en hel del om Duvel. Definitivt en av de bättre i sin prisklass.

In the afthertaste there is a fine bitterness.
