On tap at la gaiete in lille. Flavor is outstandingly well balanced for a bdg. Roasted and fruity notes come through with expected flavor of the type. Very solid beer.

McGarnigle (565) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAY 9, 2009
On sale, but still well ahead of drink by date of 09.28.09. Golden body, fab lacy head. Nice body moderate carbonation. Brewed in France, but I cannot help but think of it as a Belgian. Yeasty, earthy, dry. Really not that fruity to me. Some hop presence. Pretty easy to drink.

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.

Ljunkan (530) - SWEDEN - MAY 30, 2008
330 ml bottle from Systembolaget. Golden color with a pretty nice, dying head. Smells wonderful of orange and clove. Flavor is dominated by a nice malty sweetness, very balanced, with taste of orange, citrus, banana and caramel. This one is very underrated. I will definitely buy this again, both due to the good taste and the low price.

Bottle, 330ml. A golden colour with a medium-sized white head. A sweet, hoppy aroma. Flavour is kinda hoppy, with some honey and yeast notes. Not bad, but I was expecting much more flavour from a beer with such high ABV. This is however the best French beer I’ve had, mostly because the others I’ve tried have been barely drinkable.

Droge afdronk, smaak licht banaan zoet, klein bittertje en wat zuurtjes. Aroma muf hooi, veredeld pilsener. Waterig kraagje. Uit blik in Frankrijk.

psilosophy (512) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - JUL 10, 2011
Bouteille de 25cl, titre à 7,2%. Couleur dorée limpide, mousse moyenne de tenue correcte. Une bière qui ne fait pas dans la finesse mais qui propose un goût franc et généreux. Très légèrement fruitée, sucrée mais équilibre correct. Une production sympa à deux pas de chez moi. Trouvée à Intermarché - Montigny en Gohelle.

75cl corcked bottle in Malaucene France. A bit bland for a Biere de Garde. Taste and looks more like some type of blonde beer. However it is very smooth and refreshing.
