thebeertourist (4859) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 15, 2009
Bottle from Le Quincampe, Paris. Clear golden with persistent head. Intense fruity and earthy aroma and flavours with quite a bit of sweet toffee. Some dry yeasty notes. A kind biere de garde and different from he pack.

ROGUE (2099) - Newark, Delaware, USA - JAN 7, 2009
750 bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a very small head that quickly disappears. Has an earthy aroma. Some fruitiness lingers in the background. Taste is similarly earthy with sour and funk. The flavor just does not sit very well with me. A lingering sweetness dominates the finish. Light body with low carbonation. Not a bad beer, just nothing impressive.

MiP (13663) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 8, 2008

KyotoLefty (6565) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 7, 2008
Bottle in Paris, 2006. Medium golden, very little head. Aroma of malt and yeast. Very malty, quite sweet flavor. Fruity. Some bitterness but not much. A touch strong. Something of that grassy, farmyard like taste that comes with other bieres de garde. Spicy. People talk about green apple. Is that what I taste? I don’t think so, but… A slightly bitter finish. Interesting. I can’t really tell what these flavors are, but they are quite original. It is a touch too sweet for me, but good.

Bragesnak (5387) - Aarhus, DENMARK - SEP 20, 2008
Tasting at DØ meeting, Aarhus Syd, DK. Bottled, 170809. Golden with nice head. Aroma of malt, fruit and alcohol. Flavor ditto.

Dedollewaitor (14036) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 2, 2008
33cl bottle. Pours clear golden with a fine white head & lacings. Nose & taste is: Dusty, fruity, yeasty, barnyard- quite disappointing. Smooth, soft & sticky palate. Overall too sweet & too many off flavors.

Homer321 (1962) - Rock Ridge, Florida, USA - JUL 15, 2008
bottle dated 12-10-06. aroma has "that belgain funk" like it might be tart. app is hazy dark yellow. hardly any carbonation, maybe it all leaked out? Ha. taste is like WTF? not what I was expecting from the nose. smooth, slight taste from raw sugars in brewing. palate is ok, kinda neutral. I’m glad I didn’t pay too much for this beer. while it’s ok for the price, it left me wanting more complexity. I’d buy it again, but I can see why the store wanted to get rid of it to get better beers in. Maybe it was past it’s prime, not really sure.

BeerBiker (1412) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 21, 2008
Bottle from Finn sampled at RISKY-Nielsys summerhouse in Bodensee. Typical Biere de garde beer with dry flavor of weak fruits. Hazy light and not something special, but not that bad.
