EithCubes (5208) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 23, 2008
750 mL swing-top, another for those $11-for-$4 run-out deals from Sahara. Best by 05.28.09. Yeasty, dusty nose with brightly fruity and vaguely woody notes. Highly-carbonated, clear caramel-colored pour with a dense and creamy off-white head. Taste is earthy and primarily yeasty, but gentrified, light citrus and wood with a nice light fruity profile. Little spicy kick from the hops. Dryish with faint caramel. Smooth, dense medium body and a dusty end, well-concealed alcohol but warms gently and has a weighty presence after the pear kicks in. Honey, wheat, light orange rind, pepper, grain, and pale malt base. A lot going on here, and somewhere between a Saison and a bière de garde. Makes me happy.

330 ml bottle. Finland. Golden colour. Very enjoyable aroma. The flavour gets better when the beer gets warmer.

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - DEC 23, 2008
A me questa birra è piaciuta, al contrario della Goudale! Mi è piaciuto soprattutto aroma: delicato, dolce, complesso a sufficienza, molto appetitoso fra i migliori nasi che ho potuto notare in bières de garde. La prima parte del sapore è paradisiaca, perché segue precisamente questa impressione olfattiva; ma presto scade in un TERRIBILE metallico che sembra proprio di mangiarsi le chiavi di casa (neanche quelle della macchina che hanno un poco di plastica e il meccanismo). Un vero peccato perché mi ispirava parecchio a parte una certa acquosità. Comunque fra le migliori birre di Gayant.

Archibaldo de la Cruz (1121) - FINLAND - DEC 23, 2008
Bottle. Clear golden colour with a small white head. Aroma of yeast and malt. The flavour is malty and yeasty with notes of some fruits and spices. Very creamy mouthfeel. Maybe a bit thin but very drinkable.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 21, 2008
Bottle poured into a goblet. Pours a clear golden with a big dense white head that hangs around for a while leaving decent lacing. The aroma is very bready with some toasted grains and corn on top of the subtle Belgian yeast. Maybe some spices in the nose as well. The taste mirrors the aroma with toasted grains and spices along with a little alcohol presence coming through in the finish. There is a sweetness that grows as the beer warms. The mouthfeel is smooth and clean with a slightly dry finish. An interesting beer that didnt stand out in any way for me.

dnas2 (705) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2008
Bottled. Rather dark in colour. Strong malty, biscuit and berry fruit scent. Very carbonated. Cereals and wood in the mouth. Malty but not sweet and not particularly dry.

TBone (13718) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 17, 2008
Bottled. BB 02/2010. Clear deep golden color, small white head. Strong aroma of leather in the nose with some hops and fruity tinge. Very carbonated, lively mouthfeel. Flavor has spices (black pepper), tropical fruits and leather. Finish is quite alcoholic. Aftertaste has some bitter hops together with alcoholic warming feeling. A bit thin. Quite simple, but someway drinkable. This is not really a biere de garde, but closer to strong Belgian ales.

pnista (1007) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - DEC 12, 2008
Pours a richer macro yellow with an average white head. The nose is sweet, but not disgustingly so, a bit of soap, a small hint of floral hops. Not too assertive. Creamy mouthfeel, rich, the best part about this beer. Sweet caramel to toast with again, something soapy like in the nose, perhaps the light hosp. A bit of pepper, some slight hint of alcohol, a bit of toast. Lingering sweetness with slight pepper. Not a terrible beer, but I wont likely drink this again.
