wnp22 (698) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - APR 26, 2005
Tasted in Toronto. Obtained from LCBO. Tasted in Maudite snifter. Appearance is deep golden with lively sustained head. Aroma is dry, spicy and has a nice floral component. Flavour has a spicy component, with a finishing bitterness that, for the alcohol level aproaches refreshing.

mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 23, 2005
bottle. golden-orange colour, fluffy white head. aroma is slightly spicy, dusty hops. flavour is sweet with notes of butterscotch, and a touch of spiciness. It’s interesting, but doesn’t really do it for me.

dornoy (701) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 18, 2005
Low white head on top of a dark yellow body. Fruity, with a seemingly predominance of lemon. Spicy too. Strong but no alcohol taste. Very drinkable, but not quite my favourite Bière de garde.

Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 16, 2005
What a great aroma - mild, sweet and fruity without being cloying. Cloudy with no head, and a decent warming beer. Strong, smooth with a bit of bitterness after swallowing. Reminds me a bit of Duvel.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 13, 2005
Bottle, LCBO Spring Release 2005. Yellow pour, small white head. Fresh corn smell - not macro corn, but the smell of a freshly husked cob of corn. Taste was slightly sweet and spicy over a medium mouthfeel. This was a very unique beer that I will sample again to try and get a better handle on it. For now, points for being interesting.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - APR 11, 2005
A nice suprise found at the LCBO. GOlden body, thin and bubbly white head. Aroma is spices, floral and some citrus. Taste is a spicy bite accompanied by some honey and citrus flavours. Finish is crisp, and sharp. My first bier de garde I think.

jercraigs (9447) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 10, 2005
330 ml Bottle. LCBO Spring Release 2005. Golden yellow, small wispy white head. Fairly fruity and spicey aroma, and flavour is likewise. Alcohol was not noticeable. Meh. Boring and not really to my taste on this evening.

pintbypint (3306) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 7, 2005
330ml brown bottle. Deep gold colour, thick and creamy head. Hops, caramel, fruity (pineapple, pear?) aromas. Strong note of toffee, some yeast, rich malt. Rather spicy, with an alcohol bite.

CapFlu (5096) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 6, 2005
(Bottle) Pours a huge, foamy, white head and a highly carbonated, mildly sediment-filled, amber body. Nose of english hops, old fruit and cheezy malt... and it may be a tad tinny as well. The flavour is very raisin-like and malty. A much better taste than aroma. I like it!

DerWeg (1579) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 30, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 11, 2005 Straightforward package of clean hops and slightly sticky malt sweetness. Interesting nose of green fruits. Very drinkable even new, alcohol noticeable but not overbearing. Decent size fine head leaving some lacings. Fizzy mouth. Solid brew with likable sweet corn character.
