Ah, Goudale. The definition of the bad Biere de Garde. This pours a highly carbonated yellow into a giant chemical head. The head settles and you sample the nose and are slightly offended by the salty French "special malts" that catch your nose and you think you are tasting a mixture of salty Nord-Pas de Calais factory fumes, a cow field, and that patiserie next to that Turk restaurant in Maubeuge that nevertheless tempted you with doughy delights each time you passed under its crusty facade. That is to say that this beer isn’t all that bad --like Nord-Pas de Calais is bearable with a cute girl on the coast in July-- but it is still bad. The alcohol is annoyingly prevalent for no apparent reason, as it supplements what is basically all grains and a complete absence of balance in the hops. The defines "super-fermented" malt-liquor that is norther French beer.

Golden. White head. Floral fresh aroma followed my malty sweet aroma and typical french perfumy dishwater finish.

Amber of color with a white head. An aroma with malt, apricot and honey. Light sweet malt flavor, notes of hops.

Kalli (502) - Falun, SWEDEN - FEB 6, 2008
Golden, very little head and a yeasty aroma with some sugary notes. Well masked, in a sense, as it isn’t very flavourful. Little happening. It’s simple, sweet and nothing special.

Trooper11 (468) - Suffolk, Virginia, USA - SEP 22, 2008
Huge foamy monster head atop a clean filtered amber brew. Great inviting aroma. Fresh grassy with a hint of alspice. Good body, sweet at first taste but subtle spice and warmth.

pnista (1007) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - DEC 11, 2008
Pours a weird clear yellow orange gold with a healthy white head The nose is sweet, very very sweet. Sweet like corn, reminiscent of High Life. A little bit of spice... maybe skunked light hops? Maybe some apples... weird. The mouth is as thin as this beer looks, moderate CO2, not a lot going on. The flavors are about in line with everything else. Sweet and lacking substances. Theres some spice, like I said about the nose, but its mostly dead hops I think. Cloying sweetness lingers. I just dont like this one. Despite the sweet spot I have for High Life, I just dont like this beer!

Floral yet medicinal aroma. Quite sweet on the tongue followed by some raw alcohol flavour and a slightly bitter finish.

had the 75cl bottle. High fermented blond beer, clear blond. with nice taste of blend of spice and caramel. Good. I had this 75cl bottle so I used it to make my beer bread.
