3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
A - Poured in an over sized wine glass. Clear copper with a 1 finger white head leaving a corner ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass. Very little lacing.
S - Grassy yeast, bread with some honey notes, earthy grains, green apples, with some spiciness as well.
T - Malty followed by a spicy citrus. Tart fruits-pears & apples. Some cereal and sour grain in the background along with mild alcohol notes. There’s also some metal present. It comes through in the aftertaste as well. The finish is tart and crisp.
The metallic aftertaste of this beer bugs me. This was an ok Biere de Garde. It’s worth a try though.

Drank with Lennart 16-12-2013. Golden yellow color with medium carbonation. Nice soft taste, though also a bit metally. Not very special.

En snäll öl som förgyller strupen med lika delar sötma och beska. Påminner en hel del om Duvel. Definitivt en av de bättre i sin prisklass.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bière dorée, limpide et où flotte une fine écume laissant peu de dentelle au verre. Des arômes de malts pâles d’où pointent certains esters fruités et un arôme de fruits tropicaux. Peu amère et assez sucrée. Elle est lisse, de corps moyen, peu effervescente et se termine sur des notes légèrement sucrées et quelque peu astringentes

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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

UPDATED: NOV 9, 2006 pours a goldn yellow with a nice looking bubbly head that laces very well. the aroma is peppery, with some malty elements. flavor is much the same with a leathery note. Biere de grade seems to resemble a triple in many ways: nice mouthfeel: better than Ch ti

Lively warm-blond beer with an orange shine and a good creamy froth. Nice malty aroma with a touch of white candy sugar,fresh fruits,soft spices and a little hint of flowers.This beer has a full and refreshing taste with a fine touch of spice,fruits and malts. In the afthertaste there is a fine bitterness.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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
