Bottle. Amber with white head. Fruity aroma. Taste is also fruity with malt and hops in the end. Warming finish. Quite drinkable but nothing special.

Cerveza rubia con sabor dulce y ligeramente especiado, no muy amarga. Se le nota el alcohol al final.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice almond and vanilla, if slightly faint, nose. more almonds and vanilla on the palate, firm maltiness, yet pretty dry. Very easy-drinking for its 7.2%, yet far from being bland. Obviously has to be drunk within the BBE date, not 5 years or so later... :o>

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
slight peppery aroma, honey, some DMS and oxidation (strange the exp. date on the bottle was 02/03 ?!). Very mild, some hop character in finish, light bodied. oxidation but not terrible. Some yeast character(the peppery notes). OK, not my favorite Biere De Garde, but not bad either.

Pale golden colour with a thick white lacy head. very malty and irony nose, a touch of lemon and/or very sour. a long almost disturbing sour taste. reminds me of rhubarb pie. not my favourite.

Clear golden color. Offwhite fading head. Fruity aroma is a little alcoholic. Flavor is also fruity and buttery. Palate is carbonated but smooth.

2.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled, 75cl. Golden color, with little foamy head. Aroma of malts and herbs. But taste is not what I expected. Taste was not perceptible enough. I should taste again to be sure it was not the bottle since the aroma was great...

The best of the Biere de Gardes I’ve tried. It tasted how French stubbies used to taste to me before I got into good beer, and started to find them disgusting.
YBasically it’s a very straightforward lager, amped-up to 7% with prominent, bitter/herbal noble hops and and a very dry, cerealy finish.
