2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 330ml. A golden colour with a medium-sized white head. A sweet, hoppy aroma. Flavour is kinda hoppy, with some honey and yeast notes. Not bad, but I was expecting much more flavour from a beer with such high ABV. This is however the best French beer I’ve had, mostly because the others I’ve tried have been barely drinkable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle from Systembolaget. Golden color with a pretty nice, dying head. Smells wonderful of orange and clove. Flavor is dominated by a nice malty sweetness, very balanced, with taste of orange, citrus, banana and caramel. This one is very underrated. I will definitely buy this again, both due to the good taste and the low price.

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.

75cl corcked bottle in Malaucene France.
A bit bland for a Biere de Garde. Taste and looks more like some type of blonde beer. However it is very smooth and refreshing.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Golden, very little head and a yeasty aroma with some sugary notes. Well masked, in a sense, as it isn’t very flavourful. Little happening. It’s simple, sweet and nothing special.
