Brewed (with help from our great friend Jean of Tired Hands!) on the day of my grandmother’s passing (Norma), this is an inspired Biere de Mars fermented entirely in oak and inoculated with our house spontaneous culture.

Dunt (285) - Illinois, USA - AUG 25, 2012
Bottle generously provided by Gonzoillini. Thank you Tony, I’ve 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 don’t know if I exactly like it. There is honey, white wine, hops, and some band aid characteristics. Not bad, but it’s peculiar. Taste is better, it’s 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. It’s one of the better Biere de gardes I’ve had, but probably not the best. Still really thankful to try it, thanks again Tony!

Scopey (6834) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2014 Bottle big thanks to Thomas. It pours hazy golden amber with a thick white head. The nose is soft, doughy, woody, white wine, wood, damp leaf, orange muffin, light vinegar and mild spice. The taste is tart, woody, vinous, damp leaf, wood, must, some acidity, fruit cake, gooseberry, sponge cake and light metallic notes with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Nice depth, but a touch musty and acidic. Not sure how much I could drink of this, but it’s nice in small measures.

Nocturne (786) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUN 26, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 24, 2014 750ml bottle. 2013 batch. Slow gusher. Pours out eventually a slightly murky orange/brown shade. Big sticky head with chunks of lacing. Instant bretty, farmhouse aroma, with fruity apple and grape skin notes. Plenty of all that on the tongue as well. Starts off a little sweet but then turns dry and oaky. Quite a creamy feel to the palate. Nothing out of this world but certainly a wonderfully crafted rustic beer.
