3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle-conditioned, 750mL. Clear orange-golden color, sparkling frothy head with lots of lace -- beautiful although plain-looking beer. Flowery aroma, somewhat spicy. Reminiscent of a Belgian strong ale. Hoppy, spicy flavor. Not very malty but with a nice sweetness. Dry aftertaste and nice lastying hop bitterness. Body was a little thin. Went well with a homemade merguez quiche due to the spicy nature and alcoholic body that cut through the cheese and sausage fats. A good, simple, drinkable, and widely-available French beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aromas of fruits, yeast and cereals. Medium carbonation. Finish is long and spicy. A good "bière de garde", even if not the best one !

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Yellow orange pour, nice white head with a touch of lacing. Hop forward nose, grassy with a hint of vanilla. Flavor is grainy and dry with grassy hop notes. Body is soft with mild carbonation. Kind of bitter and dry on the finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear pale body with a large white frothy head. Nose has honey, citrus, coriander and herbs. Taste is sweet at first and is followed by a mild bitter sweet aftertaste. After a while the bitterness adds up on the palate so this is best to enjoyed slowly. Carbonation is fairly soft and works well with this. Palate is surprisingly full and the alcohol is well hidden.

Купил в Сильпо по скидке. Когда цена выросла в два раза, интерес к этому пиву пропал.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Flat nose like wet paper. Golden color is the best part of the beer. Aroma of grapefruitbitters in smell taste and very harsh bitter aftertaste. Not a pleasant beer at all.
