mcberko (9339) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 30, 2015
750mL bottle, pours a cloudy dark orangey brown with a small white head. Aroma brings out loads of oak, light tartness, and light wild yeast. Flavour is complex, with loads of oak, light tartness like a Flanders Red, and some wild yeast. Super complex, with a lovely tartness and oakiness. An archetype for Biere de Gardes out there. Fantastic.

Rune (9331) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 6, 2009
Bottle, batch 346/348, bought at Ølbutikken and shared with Skinnyviking. Dark amber hue with a filmy layer. Tart aroma with notes of yeast. Rounded flavour of fruity tartness, caramel malts and spices. Quite lively carbonation. Slow building and a bit heavy to drink. Average to my palate and rating (Copenhagen, 17.05.2009).
