Nice beer. Pours a brite light orage amber color. Head is fluffy and lingers. Not sure why this beer wasn’t bottle conditioned. Not as much carbonation as I’d expect from a BdG. Nice hop spiciness. Tart fruit and a slight funkiness. Overall, a good beer.

Bottle 33. This is a typical Belgian style beer. Good triple blond beer very sweet, quite similar to a Duvel but more fruity.

BMan1113VR (7820) - Los Angeles, California, USA - OCT 19, 2008
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. US bottle at 8.0% ABV. Clear golden body with a tight white head that leaves a fair amount of lacing. Aroma of hay, caramel, pepper and apple. Taste is a little light struck or skunky, with dry fruits, caramel and kind of sugary. Lively carbonation.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - OCT 18, 2008
Bottle thanks to Bu11zeye. Pours a clear gold with white head. Aroma of apple. Flavor was actually kinda boring, very faint apple and signs of caramel. Mouth feel is light body, high carbonation. Overall, I thought this was kinda boring in flavor....kinda bland.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - OCT 9, 2008
Bottle@Home. Malty, apple, some veggies and a hint of citrus aroma. Golden color, white head, good lace. Very sweet, light bitter, very malty, apple, just a hint of citrus in the finish. Full and smooth. Flavorful, well balanced, filling.

steview (1018) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 7, 2008
nice, but boring aroma; translucent gold body, orange highlight, fairly active, creamy white head; medium, sweet flavor--gentle balance among spices and flavors; the palate can be a bit oily; good.

Kinz (3251) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - OCT 4, 2008
Pours a clear light amber, decent head lasts well and throws a good lace. Aroma was quite yeast accented, spicy and a bit woodsy. Flavor is caramel accented malts, an undefined fruitiness, lots of yeastiness, spicy, woodsy, and a nice bitter hop finish. The yeast is actually rather reminiscent of Unibroue’s house note, which was the first time I had remembered encountering that in a non-Unibroue brew. Nicely done, quite tasty in fact. Should not that this was more of a Belgian Strong than a Biere de garde in flavor.

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - SEP 23, 2008
Swingtop 750 courtesy cdumler. Amber pour with a medium head. Aroma of candi sugar, fruit and a slightly smoky earthiness. Others trying the same bottle got notes of smoked meat, but I did not. Taste is caramel, stone fruits, candi sugar and spicy hops. Full bodied.

Good beer, it takes some nice French malts with flavor of fruit and the slightly of the earth. Nice and herbly it works all around. Who says France only makes good wine?
