This is my favorite French beer I drink a couple every night. It is now available in 33cl bottles. It is interesting how few people described the beer accurately as it is flavoured with orange zest and coriander. Goudale responds well to being chilled. Gayant brewery also make beers that are sometimes sold in Lidl these are great value and well worth buying I just bought 7 cases of Abaye beer in 75cl bottles for 1.5 euros a bottle - very good value. Tastes like a less alcoholic and less flavored Goudale. Damn shame the beer had ben pasteurised. Would love to try unpasteurised Gayamt beers.

Terminus (3558) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 23, 2016
Bottle purchased at a super market in Paris, Pours bright crystal clear orange huge with a small soapy white head and sparse lacing. Nose is musty, slightly earthy, barnyard, lite phenols. A bit boring flavor wise but still shows the traditional De Garde character-earthy, slihgtly phenolic, and medium carbonation. Long finish of lite fruit, earthy malts and some nice barnyard yeast twang going on. A fairly entry level example of the style, but its a decent beer nonetheless.

Bosskie (752) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 31, 2016
Cristal-clear copper-coloured beer, luminous, with a white head. Smell is malty white pepper coriander and metallic honey sweetness. Hint of mint. Taste is bready watery, nice bitterness, well balanced against subtle sweetness. Hint of honey. Astringent finish. Quite OK.

aleigator (779) - GERMANY - AUG 23, 2016
Yields an amber-golden color with a medium sized, froth, white head. Smells of flowery, slightly tart yeast with a hint of wet grass to it, coated up by white bread dough. Reveals a subtle clove and pepper spice note once the beer warms up. Has a medium carbonation, which turns up the volume after the swallow, finishing effervescent and refreshing with a noteable warmth, once the liquid goes down to the belly. Tastes of calming white bread malts with an uprising, biting spiciness, inheriting a sweet, sugary note, opening up the palate to cakey malts. Finishes with rock sugar, bitter cardamom and dried herbs among an aqueous softness. Tastes like a lighter Triple, which got a prominent spiciness to it, defining the taste while the beer remains pleasantly refreshing.

Large Format - Clear golden color with several steady streams of tiny bubbles. Smells very floral with hints of cinnamon and spice. Taste very closely resembles the smell. On old style of beer, doesn’t make it a good one.

Nice beer! Trying today to score a Dutch girl and this is a perfect warm up! Germany playing as well but there are more important issues!
