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.

shintriad (701) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 28, 2005
Stale apple juice, malt, and diesel alcohol in the nose. Somewhat pale orange-gold, thin short head. Sweetish with brandy notes, but a bit plasticky and the alcohol stands out too much. I’ll have to guard it for a couple of years and see what happens to it.

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.

Otje (678) - Veendam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 14, 2006
Bottle 25cl. Delirium cafe, Brussel. Golden beer with a small head and some yeast particals. Smells malty, a bit herbal(odd).Tastes malty and sweet with some cellar notes(bbe: april ’06). Finishes sweetish, sourrish, slighly bitter and a little cardboard(a pity). Nice one.

cervmagpt (647) - PORTUGAL - MAR 1, 2016
Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 24C). Bottle 33 cl - Batch unknown. AROMA: predominant mix of slight alcohol and a medium low malt sweetness with notes of a doughy, bready character. The alcohol is slightly peppery. No hop perceived nor fruitiness. APPEARANCE: golden color and clear. medium-large off-ehite head, creamy, with medium-low retention. some lace formation. TASTE: predominant malty sweet flavor with notes of bread and a slight touch of honey-like malt. low bitterness with a semi-dry to dry finish, with a bready character. PALATE: medium-low body with a very faint texture. faint alcohol warmth. no other palate sensations. excessive carbonation. OVERALL: a nice biere the garde, with a predominant bready and alcohol aroma, with a sweet component. the sample was overcarbonated (gusher).

dirkules (629) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 21, 2004
Sharpness to the taste. Sweet lke sap with orange and pear... I was certain it was an abbey I was drinking at first. The smell is very harsh though. This drink doesn’t have a pleasant nose. It’s like a stale verison of the taste. Interesting.

lello4ever (623) - ITALY - FEB 8, 2015
Si tratta di una biere de garde, una ale bionda dal buon contenuto alcolico prodotta dalla noto La Choulette in Francia. Arancio carico piuttosto torbido e con lievito sospeso, ha una schiuma fine poco persistente. L’aroma è semplice, malto, leggera frutta, un tocco di luppolo. Molto gradevole al palato, con una bella freschezza di spezie, un sapore principalmente maltoso ma contenuto e ben equilibrato dalle note più amare del lievito. Consistenza piena, corposa grazie alcool ben in evidenza. Molto soddisfacente.

CampbellWilson (533) - SCOTLAND - JAN 1, 2006
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Gold with white head. This had an aroma similar to some of the better Saisons - a fruity (gooseberry and peach?) sweet pastry thing that I’ve also noted in some Unibroue beers. Little bit of alcohol in there too (I don’t get whisky, maybe brandy?). Slight industrial note to the taste which doesn’t live up to the aroma. Dryish finish. Not bad.

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.

Kolor z?oty, klarowny. Piana bia?a, puszysta, drobno p?cherzykowa, wysoka, wyj?tkowo trwa?a, pozostawia fantastyczne zdobienia. Aromat: wytrawny, owocowy, s? bia?e winogrona, jest s?odowo?? i delikatna "malinowa" s?odycz. Ca?o?? podane z charakterystycznymi dla stylu, nutami piwnicznymi. Smak: delikatnie ostry, pieprzowy, wytrawny z wyra?n? s?odowo?cia, s? bia?e owoce, lekko kwa?ne i s?odkie, mnóstwo wilgotnej piwnicy wype?nionej mokrym, kielkujacym zbo?em. Goryczka delikatna, pieprzowa. Wysycenie wysokie, odpowiednie.
