0.25 bottle. Pours nice and lasting white head. Aroma sweet, some fruits and bread, not impressive at all. Tastes watery in spite of 7.2 abv. Very dominating metallic taste, and some malty sweetness. Bitterness is low, mainly from alcohol. Not a good one. On a blind test I would say it is a strong lager.

From Carrefour Camas. In Teku glass. Reading CSHTP Ch11. Pleasant but not memorable. Herbal, eaethy and a bit metallic bitterness. A standard biere de garde. Alcohol a bit noticeable but doesbt bother

Thanks to hopdog for sharing... Appears a light gold with a fluffy 2 finger white head. White film with a solid collar. Little bits of carbonation pump to the top. Smell is like champaigne spiced with honey and pepper. Tastes like champaigne spiced with honey and pepper with alcohol detected. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and spicey with a mild sweetness. This one is ok but the abv is noticable and I’m just not crazy about it.

cagou007 (931) - FRANCE - NOV 25, 2010
Aromas of fruits, yeast and cereals. Medium carbonation. Finish is long and spicy. A good "bière de garde", even if not the best one !

raymondwave (931) - FINLAND - OCT 26, 2007
Bottle 0.33 l. Pale yellow gold. Earthy and organic nose. Flavor is similar, intense with a fruity ciderlike touch, slightly sour, but then again full. Very interesting, first I’ve had of this style and would gladly have another one.

maupie (926) - Roosendaal, NETHERLANDS - SEP 30, 2005
This beer has a goldenyellow body - hue apperance and a coarse white scum collar. I have drunk the beer from the bottle and it had a lot of carbonic acid. The initial flavor taste is spicy.

Bottle
Blonde with neon white head. Probably some wheat in this one. Nice herbal aroma with a hint of vanilla and yeast. Palate is medium body with long finish. Taste more like a belgian blonde than a Biere de Garde. Missing somewhat in herbs and/or sourness. Quite yeasty with a lot of fruits. Nice everyday Belgian.

Deu (920) - Nantes, FRANCE - FEB 6, 2013
Golden yellow colour with a small white head. Smells some cheese, moldy, malts, some yeast and just very slightly hoppy. Tastes water, iron, malts. Quite watery for its 7,2%.. Would’ve guessed its a regular 5%. Overall Ok

Can. I guess it’s not aged that long. Clear amber, only slightly darker than a pale lager, with a thick, white head. Malt aroma, with some rich caramel and roasted notes. Sweet, heavy and full body. Finishes a bit sweet and long. But, a distinct style I’ve not explored before.
