4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle @ home. I’m excited to taste this beer again as the previous two times that I had it, I found in an elite class. Here goes... Slightly hazy, mostly transparent, light yellow orange appearance with a fluffy, pearl white head. Sweet orange citrusy, Belgian yeasty, bready malty nose. Slightly tart, orange citrusy, Belgian yeasty flavor. Citrusy, belgian yeasty aftertaste. Great brew but not legendary as I remembered.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml can. Canned Biere de Garde... now there’s a good idea. Very pale golden brew with a creamy white head. Aroma is lightly malty with a faint spiciness and some soft woody hops. A fairly assertive earthy/spicy bitterness. As it opens up, there is a also a soft perfumey yeastiness with a touch of mint, honey and light rosemary herbaceous flavour. Nice soft palate, light herbs and spices over a softly fruity yeastiness. This is a pretty nice beer really... sort of a strong Belgian/saison combination. Finishes quite dry.
