cagou007 (336) - 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 (333) - 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.

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.

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

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.

Madsen1635 (326) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 21, 2014
Bottle . Clear golden pour with medium sized white head. Pleasant yeasty aroma. Taste is sweet with yeast and underlying notes of malt and wheat. Easy drinkable and quite high carbonation.

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.

tomxcs (321) - Berkeley, California, USA - JAN 18, 2005
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.
