2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
21.11.13 Bottled 330ml Saveur. Deep ruby-red color, small beige head. Light toasted, a bit tart-musty aroma. Medium-bodied. Maltyness, red berries, some tartness in the flavor. Kind of earthy touch too. Certainly this is not a biere de garde which RB says it is. And I don’t think that this either what brewer intended.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very dark brown body and small bubbly head. Refined malts, forest aromas, cereal and clean yeast. Not thick in body, but well drinkable. Decent taste profile, light bitter base. Fine brew. (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 33cl, a dark beer with good head and good retention. Nose is intense on vinous, dark fruit and rosted notes. Aroma is sour, on oak and red fruit, dry, cherry, if this is the wanted taste then this beer should be set as a flemish brown. Long oak and cherry notes, burnt notes too, tartre, very dry especially at the finish with no hops notes .

Scusate, ma che bière de garde sarebbe? A me pareva l’incrocio fra una stout ed una di quelle ales belghe un po’ pasticciate sul generico.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, from trade with fonefan. A dense, off-white head of finger-thick size sits on top of a clear, reddish brown body. Quite coffee-ish on the nose, roasted and with a touch of berries and caramel. The flavor is slightly sourish, but also roasted, almost coffee-like and with that same berry touch found in the aroma. Medium body, slighlty acidic. Nothing really bad here, but quite strange. Like the maltyness, but sourness isn’t in place. 110406

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750mL courtesy of a beer friend bringing back from Belgium. Poured cloudy reddish brown with big bubbles of a tan head. Aroma of wild grapes. Flavor is slightly acetic with a musty edge and slightly thin and medicinal edge. Never would have pegged this as a Biere de Garde.
