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.

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.

CanCrusher (732) - 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.

Dredd (727) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - OCT 11, 2006
Great beer. Lovely appearence and lots of estery flavours with a nice bitter finish. Alcohol in this is well balanced in this one and has a nice cleanliness to it which makes this a very pleasent beer indeed.

Bottled. Malty straw biscuit aroma. Slightly carbonated. Dry and some bitterness on the end. In the mouth there are biscuits, malt, straw and some sugars and berry fruit. Not sweet.

dornoy (701) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 30, 2004
White head on a beautifully orange-gold body. The taste is all I expected from a quality blond bière de garde. It is malty but fruity at the same time. A beer I would drink at any time. One of the best

Cloudy golden colour with a white head. Sweet, spicy, champagne like aroma. Decent carbonation, citric flavour with a dry bitter finish.

Drink4Satan (676) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 3, 2009
The pour produces a slightly hazy orange/gold with a creamy white head that leaves great lacing. The nose is grainy, with corn husk, floral hops, honey and not much else. The flavour is equally grainy, with notes of corn, leafy hops, and that characteristic funky vegetal high-fermentation temp flavour. Bier de Garde’s have never been my thing, but this one really turned me off. It just tastes rotten. The palate, despite the flavour, is very nice, as it is creamy, appropriately carbonated and slightly warming in the finish, that ends a little syrupy though.
