Sdaniel90 (372) - Mexico City, MEXICO - JUN 4, 2013
Bottle, 75cl. Pours a clear golden colour with a velvety white head. Aroma is pretty faint, not much going on. Taste is better than the aroma suggests. Quite sweet, but lacking character. Good beer

LarsEngen (363) - Sandvika, NORWAY - SEP 1, 2012
330 ml bottle from systembolaget Nordstan, Göteborg. Pours deep golden with a medium off white head that leaves a good lacing. Aroma with notes of orange. Light sweetness, light bitterness and medium sourness. Aftertaste of bitter oranges. Easy to drink and a nice one

Veer (362) - Landskrona, SWEDEN - JUN 16, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2007 Yay, finally found the notes, so here it goes:
Aroma: fruit, banana, passionfruit, malt, spices, hops, gooseberry, candisugar, flowery.
Appearance: clear yellow with white foam. It looks like an ordinary pale lager.
Flavour: rural/rustic, sweet, unbalanced, strangely bitter (as in bitter in a strange way), very musty, sourish.
Palate: rough, slightly slimy, soft, long.

MrDick (347) - San Francisco, California, USA - NOV 14, 2002
With my first taste, I was quickly reminded of Fantôme Pissenlit. The same flowery/dandelion taste. Hints of earth textures. The flavors hide the high ABV. Makes you want to be a rock star.

Gustav1996 (333) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - NOV 19, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 14, 2010 Bottle. Smell and tastes of sugary malt... and a little metallic too. Pours a yellow/orange color with small head that goes away fast. Average at best... not bad but can not really say it was good. Nothing stands out.

taunusmies (331) - FINLAND - OCT 13, 2007
Pours clear golden, with a light red hint. Sweet fruity, and quite earthy aroma. A beer which has a character.

cagou007 (326) - 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 !

AndrewC (323) - Canterbury, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2011
Bottle from France. Smells of standard strongish French/Belgium bottled lager. Tastes like alcoholic strong lager with a musty, mildly herby, finish. I’m left wondering what this is all in aid of? To what end did someone go to the trouble of making this? If Biere de Garde means Waste of Time then this has indeed been brewed to style.

sinkr (323) - Odenton, Maryland, USA - AUG 20, 2008
750->snifter: Pours a spare, creamy, white, but diminishing head that exhibits fair lacing atop a clear, amber body. Aroma is of cookie, caramel, banana, and grape. The body is light, the texture is thin, and there is a soft carbonation with an astringent finish. Flavor’s duration is average and lightly sweet. Not a horrible beer, but given the price, I’d be hard pressed to try it again.

dtborelli (322) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 4, 2011
Gayant Goudale Pours medium gold with a medium long lasting white head. Aroma of bananas and bread with some white wine and a slight herby grassiness. Flavor is yeasty and bready with a dry finish. Slightly metallic, but that waned as it warmed. Not a standout.
