ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 22, 2004
Notes of pears, apple and alcohol in the nose; flavor is oaky, sour, and perfumey, and includes some medicine/band-aid; slightly sour. Definitly different. Thanks Sham & Bück Dich!

MartinT (9411) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 1, 2004
Dusty cereal and hay reluctant to wed the comely, silky sweetness...Wild rice allusions spark the flavorful malt husks...Fizzier than the full Bavaisienne and less coherent in its intricacies, but nonetheless an honest rural raconteur...

muzzlehatch (4830) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 2, 2004
Biere de Garde and Various Oddments tasting, #2, with MartinT, Rastacouere and tiggmtl. 750 ml bottle. Medium-to-light hazy golden, little head. Honeyish, slightly apple-tinted nose, lightly yeasty and herbal. Luscious, fairly thick palate, moderately sweet...acidity present but not obtrusive. Too bad the flavor isn’t comparable to the mouthfeel, else this would be top-notch.

hotstuff (4874) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - NOV 19, 2004
750ml bottle corked and caged dated best before 9/2/05. Large fizzy white head with good lacing, carbonated, hazy, and a yellow hue. Aroma was malty, sweet and spicy as was the flavor. Smooth palate.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - SEP 14, 2005
330 ml bottle. Hazy golden colour with a fizzy white head. Doughy, yeasty, and fruity aroma with light musty notes. Bready, yeasty, musty, pepper, and spicy flavours. Medium bodied, creamy and lightly fizzy mouthfeel. I could drink another.

Eructoblaster (3888) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 23, 2005
Wonderful golden body with light but persisting carbonation. Thick and lasting off-white frothy head. Well balanced malty/hoppy aroma with various herbal, flowery, honeyish, and fruity notes. Taste is not as complex as the aroma is, but it is pleasant, sweet, and it hides the alcohol pretty well. It ends with a decent bittersweet finish. Good stuff!

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.

jefcon (1656) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - AUG 28, 2006
Light golden in color with a rambunctious head. Aromas of flowers, perfume, figs and leathery yeast. Tastes a bit sweet (with malts), and finishes very light, which is both delicate and disappointing.

Svesse (7931) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - OCT 25, 2006
(Bottle at Taverne St Germain, Paris, 16 Oct) Golden yellow colour with amber notes, very lively, frothy, white head. Fruity and spicy nose with apricots, mandarin and a hint of yeast. Fruity taste with apricots, mandarin and pineapple. Notes of yeast in the spicy, rather dry finish. Very nice balance.

goozen (3847) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - MAY 2, 2007
Bottle: Good French blond grainy, grassy hoppy with some coriander spices aftertaste in it.
