Hanoi (609) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2014
Bottle from notes. Nose is sweet, honey, elderflower touch of lemon. Taste follows with lots of honey and sweetness. In common with the style there is little hops which ultimately limits it’s appeal but a class leader.

budedou (548) - Saint Etienne, FRANCE - FEB 23, 2015
Très bonne bière de garde blonde, lègère mais équilibré et nourri. sèche telle une blanche belge. Sympa!

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.

albert007 (415) - Penobsquis, New Brunswick, CANADA - SEP 13, 2005
Bottle. Hazy golden with small white head. Initial yeast nose, with some peppery spiciness & some mild sugary sweetness. with some heavy sniffing there is sort of a well-baked potato roasted aroma. Flavor is spicy, yeasty and with that same sugary sweetness & crisp in the finish.

ElGaucho56 (394) - USA - NOV 9, 2007
750ml bottle, refermented. Pours a peach amber with dissipating slightly frothy head. Lots of suspended sediment in the pour. The nose is very strong hay, like shoving your head in a barn, some weird notes like chlorine, sushi rice, and honeydew melon, very strong honey both on nose and palate, rather velvety, pretty solid body, medicinal herby bitterness on the slightly dry, lager-like finish. Not sure how this rates up against the style, the other biere de gardes seemed a lot maltier, but this one certainly seems unique, if not mind-blowing.

KingPinHead (390) - Des Moines, Washington, USA - SEP 28, 2002
UPDATED: APR 6, 2003 Nice golden hue with large creamy head--patchy spotted lace...Aroma is at once perfumy-sweet and lightly hoppy--an unusual combination, to say the least! Hops enter the taste door first, followed by a soft flowery sweetness...Controlled carbonation adds a spritely quality to the balance...Body is medium-light, and while there is a some counterbalancing of elements, these elements don't quite mesh together...However, this is most interesting for its floral profile...

Pours a slightly hazy amber colour with a big foamy head. Floral hop aroma with a bit of hay smell also. Medium body. Spicy malt taste.

UselessGdTaste (365) - Long Beach, California, USA - MAY 13, 2007
Smells very heavily of sunflower seeds and peanut shells. Could be good if it didn’t have so much of that going on.
