3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Presentation: It was poured from a 750ml brown bottle into a tulip glass. The bottle has a bottle date of 09-28-09.
Appearance: Its body has a deep orange amber color with a good cloudy appearance and a tall off white head. The head quickly fades down to a thin cap which then holds on well making spotty slick lacing on the glass.
Smell: The aroma is very wheaty and bready. Underneath that are some light citrusy notes of hops.
Taste: There are dry wheat, light grain and light bready malty notes throughout. Towards the finish a light touch of citrus hops moves in and adds some bitterness for balance. The finish is quick, snappy and dry. The palate has a medium well carbonated feel.
Notes: Overall it is a very nice Biere de Garde with loads of tasty wheat maltiness. Everything else is right on par for the style.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bouteille de 25cl, titre à 7,2%. Couleur dorée limpide, mousse moyenne de tenue correcte. Une bière qui ne fait pas dans la finesse mais qui propose un goût franc et généreux. Très légèrement fruitée, sucrée mais équilibre correct. Une production sympa à deux pas de chez moi. Trouvée à Intermarché - Montigny en Gohelle.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Couleur ambrée caramel limpide, peu de bulles, fine mousse blanche. Nez de grains d’orge, caramel, biscuit, coriandre, finale légèrement orangée. La bouche est fortement maltée, caramel. Corps moyen, bien sucrée, faible carbo, faible amertume. Bière que l’on trouve facilement en supermarché, meilleure que la moyenne de celle qu’on trouve dans les rayons. Elle manque néanmoins de caractère et d’originalité.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Presented in a nice corked bottle. The aroma is of yeast and malt with a hint of orange . The appearance of the beer is as good as the bottle's. Golden with a good white head like a freshly poured pils. Flavour wise it has that yeast start and orange flavours like most balgium beers have. However unlike Belgium beers this has quite a long, crisp, malty finish and is quite highly carbonated. A great beer either way, although it is slightly thinner on the palate than the great beers of which I have compared it to. I would definately have this one again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thanks to 1FastSTi for sharing this one. Sweet aroma with bits of caramel malt and a slight green celery combined with brown sugar. Golden yellow in color with a nice white head and lacing. Light, sweet and malty flavor with a spicy or peppery finish. Light body, nice and dry even though its sweet.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On sale, but still well ahead of drink by date of 09.28.09. Golden body, fab lacy head. Nice body moderate carbonation. Brewed in France, but I cannot help but think of it as a Belgian. Yeasty, earthy, dry. Really not that fruity to me. Some hop presence. Pretty easy to drink.

This is a not that great of a brew. It has a nice golden pour with an extremely malty smell and some hints of hops but very faint. There is no aroma nor is there any lacing. The flavor is very bland and could use some more substance. It has good carbonation and nice use of malt but the bitterness could use some work and maybe add some flavor.
