LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - JUL 2, 2008
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 (327) - 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.

jmgreenuk (4594) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 1, 2013
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.

MichaelAwesome (4300) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUL 8, 2013
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.

Tranquillity (1419) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 18, 2007
Bottled, Goudale is certainly not a good ale. Aroma of a strong lager, bit yeasty. Looks like one too, some darker gold and thicker head maybe. The taste of alcohol doesn’t do justice to the herby palate, but this still doesn’t live up the the magnificient Gavroche.

Satyroneto (108) - - MAY 22, 2014
Cor de ouro envelhecido, translúcida, com espuma branco-gelo de alta formação e baixa persistência; pouco lacing; Aroma maltado de pão-doce; Sabor de início doce de pão-doce que evolui para um final alcoólico e metálico desagradável que fica ainda mais perceptível com o aumento da temperatura; retrogosto alcoólico e metálico também desagradável. ---Rated via Beer Buddy by Sátyro

Countbeer (4517) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - DEC 26, 2011
Bottle: Small and quick disappearing white head. Leaves a lacing on top of a clear orange colored beer. Smell not much else than malts, glue and toothpaste. Taste toothpaste again with some flowers and malts. Also hints of caramel, herbs, nuts, leaves, glue. Malty aftertaste. Medium to fuller carbo, soft mouthfeel, medium body and a light creamy texture. Another unbalanced brew... This brew comes in a fucking 75cl bottle, had to pour some of it down the drain, just too much to drink this all alone or with 2 people... Why oh why would you put this out on the market.
