fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 1, 2014
Danish tasting session
Gushing bottle; pours a muddy dark amber color with large frothy head. Sour and a bit fruity aroma, with hints of vinegar and hazelnuts. Good body strength; it has a moderate and pleasant residual sweetness, a good yeast character, controlled citrusy acidity, lingering fruitiness, medium to low bitterness.
Could be better if more controlled and cleaner, but it’s clearly a good beer.

Leighton (10702) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2012
Bottle shared in NH, and a huge thanks to Wallace for sharing this very special beer. Pours cloudy, orange-gold with a soft, creamy head. Lots of funk in the aroma, some tart, citric fruit hints. Medium sweet flavor, great funk character, some oak notes. Light to medium bodied with soft carbonation. Quite dry to finish with assertive funk, mild tart citrus impressions, some subtle doughy malts, and a quenching dryness. Wonderful beer. Quite a lot of nuance in this one.

hopscotch (9064) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 22, 2012
Bottle… This beer rocks!… Pours murky and orange with a small, creamy, white head. The woody, funky, acidic nose furnishes oak and fresh fuzzy fruits and tropical fruits. Medium-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and modest carbonation. The flavor is tart, fruity and bready. Finishes tangy, accompanied by a mild yeasty bitterness. Many thanks go out to landhoney for popping the top on this world class Bière de Garde! Not too many world class Bière de Gardes in circulation. Of course, this isn’t really a straight-up Bière de Garde.
