A beer that was hard for me to like, it was canned, maybe it affected flavor. Was hopped enough, but a little too sweet, alcohol dominated every sip. Maybe the bottle conditioned will be better.

left me disappointed. no particular aroma, a rather thin body, gives an overall impression of a light drinking beer without a special caracter. not much to remember.

Vaiz (3397) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - SEP 21, 2010
Sitting in an empty field in the Rhône valley, slowly becoming mad by an eternally blowing mistral wind, I thought it was time to open up one of the more commonly available biere de gardes in France. Now why did I do that again? It smells like near-rotting vegetables and it tastes like urine. I instantly imaging such a French toilet that’s nothing more than a hole in the ground. At least it finishes slightly bitter and spicy, and it looks decent with a huge white head that leaves loads of lacing. Better leave it on the table to look at then, while I go get something else to drink.

Hmmmm mi aspettavo peggio quando l’ho comprata, speravo meglio quando l’ho versata: a vedersi pareva proprio carina. Sarò io che non apprezzo lo stile? Dato che neppure la decantata 3monts mi ha fatto impazzire, non è da escludere questa possibilità; aroma strano, fin troppo strano: disinfettante. Sapore metallicissimo non troppo dolce né sensibilmente amaro. Mah... la bottiglia è molto graziosa, peccato che avevano appiccicato il bollino del prezzo sull’etichetta e rimuovendolo si è strappata... ne comprerò un’altra? Può darsi; però non credo che per il contenuto valga la pena...

heavy (2144) - Split, CROATIA - OCT 18, 2009
A 0.75 l corked bottle from a random shop in Cannes. 7.2% ABV. Weak aroma, some slight metal. Weak aroma consists of slight alcohol and heavy malts. Flavor is crap, alcoholic, sweet sugary malty, bit of grapefruit, some metal as well. After all this, it’s thin bodied with watery and metallic finish. Expected something from this, but it’s very boring and actually bad beer, I could hardly finish shared bottle. Those are the points I can’t get the RB community, yesterday I entered a rate for another, similarly rated Biere de Garde that was full and delicious while this is more like crappy malt liquor. And it’s not bad bottle or similar. Strange.

Parket (569) - Bruges, BELGIUM - NOV 29, 2009
75cl bottle, bought in a supermarket in Arles, France. Golden colour with lacing white head. Smell: very yeast! Taste: fruity, alcohol,yeasty and a bit grainy. Not much but I’ve had worse French beers.

Pours cloudy yellow with a white head. Flavor and aroma was Frosted Flakes with some corn syrup and quite sweet. Pass.

AndrewC (328) - Canterbury, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2011
Bottle from France. Smells of standard strongish French/Belgium bottled lager. Tastes like alcoholic strong lager with a musty, mildly herby, finish. I’m left wondering what this is all in aid of? To what end did someone go to the trouble of making this? If Biere de Garde means Waste of Time then this has indeed been brewed to style.

Bottle at Deanso’s crappy music tasting. Poured a clear orange with a thin very broken white head. The aroma is a little malty, the flavour is malty and some more malt. If you like malty beers you will love this. If you don’t you won’t.

Quite unimpressive with loads of caramel and oranges in the aroma. Also massy of sugar poured in to make that beer drinkable. It is indeed. And nothing else.
