Thanks to 1FastSTi for sharing this one. Sweet aroma with bits of caramel malt and a slight green celery combined with brown sugar. Golden yellow in color with a nice white head and lacing. Light, sweet and malty flavor with a spicy or peppery finish. Light body, nice and dry even though its sweet.

This is a not that great of a brew. It has a nice golden pour with an extremely malty smell and some hints of hops but very faint. There is no aroma nor is there any lacing. The flavor is very bland and could use some more substance. It has good carbonation and nice use of malt but the bitterness could use some work and maybe add some flavor.

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.

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.

When I got it in Paris I had little idea abourt what a biere de garde was, but I’m gonna like this style. Reddish colour, small head. Mild, smooth flavour resembling a Belgian, but with strong fruity end. Enjoyable

Pours a clear honey golden with a bleached white head. Slightly sweet and a nice fruitiness. Was a bit yeasty when fresh but that’s gone with some age. No traces of alcohol in the flavour.

75cl bottle, bought in a supermarket in Arles, France. Golden colour with lacing white head. Smell: very yeast! Taste: fruity, alcohol,yeasty and a bit grainy. Not much but I’ve had worse French beers.

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.
