dirkbreedveld (288) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 7, 2009
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.

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

Ah, Goudale. The definition of the bad Biere de Garde. This pours a highly carbonated yellow into a giant chemical head. The head settles and you sample the nose and are slightly offended by the salty French "special malts" that catch your nose and you think you are tasting a mixture of salty Nord-Pas de Calais factory fumes, a cow field, and that patiserie next to that Turk restaurant in Maubeuge that nevertheless tempted you with doughy delights each time you passed under its crusty facade. That is to say that this beer isn’t all that bad --like Nord-Pas de Calais is bearable with a cute girl on the coast in July-- but it is still bad. The alcohol is annoyingly prevalent for no apparent reason, as it supplements what is basically all grains and a complete absence of balance in the hops. The defines "super-fermented" malt-liquor that is norther French beer.

Aroma is yeast, coriander, belgian blonde style. Taste is slightly sweet, slightly sour, spicy, caramel malts and very good bitterness more than balancing up the sweet.

CapedBrewsader (265) - Brasschaat, BELGIUM - FEB 4, 2008
75cl bottle: Pours a rich gold with a decent, but fading, off-white head. Aroma of sweet malts, sugar, some hop, and toast. Flavors of malt, bubblegum, earthy hop and cotton candy. A smooth graininess and alcohol come in the middle followed by toasted marshmallow. The finish is of hops and some light fruits.

Bottle. Golden colour with a white head. Fresh, but a bit thin, on the nose. Some citrus fruits and yeast. Flavour is sweet and fruity with citrus, some yeast, herbs and some hints of alcohol. I liked the finish - some nice fruitiness and some bitterness.
