3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle generously provided by Gonzoillini. Thank you Tony, Iíve been interested in trying this for a very long time. Pours a cloudy brownish orange in color with very little head on the pour. I wanted to note that the bottle foamed out of the neck after opening, so keep an eye when opening. Nose is interesting and I donít know if I exactly like it. There is honey, white wine, hops, and some band aid characteristics. Not bad, but itís peculiar. Taste is better, itís more focused on the white wine and lemon characters. There is some grassiness to it, it is faintly hoppy and somewhat saison-like. Mouthfeel is light, carbonation is light to non-existent, gentle acidity, and a short to moderate finish. Itís one of the better Biere de gardes Iíve had, but probably not the best. Still really thankful to try it, thanks again Tony!
