muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, 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 (4096) - 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 (3024) - 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 (1391) - 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 (6158) - 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 (2941) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - MAY 2, 2007
Bottle: Good French blond grainy, grassy hoppy with some coriander spices aftertaste in it.

drfabulous (4001) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - JAN 31, 2008
Finally got around to drinking this purchase I made last September in St. Louis. For some reason, as it sat in my beer rack, I remembered buying a lambic. Some memory. This is a traditional biere de garde. Fruity. Light. Not bad at all.

Adenila (1557) - DENMARK - JAN 25, 2008
There’s a picture showing the look, so im skipping that one. Aroma is that of sweet toffe along with some spicy notes. Flavor is again sweet malty with a soft fresh mouthfull and a very subdued alchohol.
