MoritzF (9448) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - FEB 21, 2013
(bottle, 33cl) Hazy, ruby amber colour with a big and beige foamy head. Yeasty, bready and mildly toasted malty aroma with notes of candy, raisins and a tinge of alcohol. Sweet and slightly bitter flavour, full bodied with a well-carbonated mouthfeel. Bready toast-malty taste with caramel and mildly vinous fruity notes of raisins, cassis and plums; sweet and delicately bitter finish with present fruity notes and a warming alcoholic strength. My favourite Jessenhofke so far. 21.II.13

(750ml bottle thanks to bu11zeye) clear deep copper with soda-like fine tan bubbles. Nose of caramel, light brown sugar, and agave syrup. Taste of alcohol, toasty, sweet, well carbonated, odd medicinal linger.

ShivanDragon (3515) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - OCT 17, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2012 licht bruin en ongefilterd. Co2 gehalte is precies genoeg.
geur is kruidig van mout en suiker,
smaak is kruidig, bitter, gerstenmout en zoet.
redelijke body, met lange krachtige en zoete afdronk.
de 10% van dit biertje is niet terug te proeven, prima

Bottle@Home. Pear and terpentine aroma. Brown, yellow head, fair lace. Sweet, bitter, raisins, pear, terpentine. Full and alcoholic. Unbalanced. And why is it called Biere de Garde?

Gerbeer (3165) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 30, 2012
Pours a garnet red/brown with light persistent head. Distinctive nose with malt and red berries, and possible licorice note. Flavours of dark fruit and chocolate. Excellent.

erickok (5462) - Leuven, BELGIUM - APR 24, 2012
Brown bodied, tan head. Nice big lacing. Nutty, caramel, spruce, humus. Well developed. Rich flavour combining a smooth malty sweetness with just enough hop backup. Carbonation is just big enough. Brings, then, what so many Belgian dubbels can’t. Absolutely hides the huge abv. Well made classic style beer. Enjoyed this a lot. (33cl bottle, pretty cheap too)
