UPDATED: JUN 5, 2009 Here is another one that is overpriced at $9.95 and under-delivers. From the 750 swing top bottle, this poured a rich gold with big white head and lots of lacing. Nose of caramel malts and odd smelling floral or fruit hops. Medium mouthfeel. Sweet flavor and a dry finish.

heemer77 (5080) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - AUG 21, 2008
From a 750ml bottle. A large light khaki tinted off white head tops a dark amber body. This leaves a very thick lacing on the side of the glass. The aroma is largely funky with some hay and hints of horse blanket. There is also some wood and apple notes. The taste is very sweet with caramel and apples. This finishes a little dry with some hints of cinnamon. A nice sipper.

WeeHeavySD (3359) - San Diego (Hillcrest), Oregon, USA - AUG 12, 2008
750ml from Whole Foods Portland. Pours dark yellow with a bright white ring. Sweet and dry and yeasty nose. Taste is light and dry and ok, its kinda prickly. Can’t tell how I feel about this.

dwyerpg (4356) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - AUG 7, 2008
A little earth to the aroma. This is also quite nice. A bit of coating to it, dryness in the finish and sweet up front.

gunhaver (1030) - Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 5, 2008
Bottle, courtesy Tony at Oldsmar Tap House. Pours a golden copper color, with a thin frothy head, lots of thick white lacing. Aroma is fairly hoppy, with a nice smooth caramel counterbalance. Some dry yeast, clove. Sweet flavor, nice fruit presence, earthy yeast, some dry fruit, grape, apricot. Bright, refreshing, alcohol is hidden well. Drinks like a small farm ale.

Beershine (5196) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - AUG 4, 2008
Dark gold-amber, not much of a tan head. Perfumy Belgian yeast, somewhat soapy, coconut water. Bland, watery, metallic, and thin. Needs to be cut with food so I don’t have to think too much about it. Alcohol is disguised well.

armando629 (2383) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 28, 2008
500 ml can(why did the brewery that imbecility?), bought at Auchan. Clear golden body under a frothy white head.Some floral and fruty hop in the nose, minimal aroma of coriander, some caramel, a bit perfume of liqueric alcohol aroma. Smooth mouthfeel, not too complex flavor but it is fine with spices, caramel, coriander and a numbing feel on the gum. Hopy aftertaste on the palate. When the beer warms up it will be better! Wait a little for the room temperature! :)

8% 750ml. clear dark gold under a foamy white head. caramel, grains, a touch of banana in aroma. flavor is sweet with caramel malts and touches of banana. also some yeast and spices. medium bodied. a little too much carbonation like its brother "la goudale".

sebletitje (6341) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 20, 2008
Bottle courtesy of Tony at OTH. This is another great offering from this French brewery. Not too complex, but it does the job right. Pours blonde. Aroma is fruity, hoppy and earthly. Taste is fruity, perhaps some figues that became more present as the beer warmed up to room temperature. Sweet malt, lightly spicy.

bbrock81 (304) - Le Mars, Iowa, USA - JUL 19, 2008
750 mL bottle, swing cap. My first (and only) Biere de Garde. Pours a bright, clear gold with a tall, very thick head that lasts a good while. Leaves a fair amount of lace. Aroma is musty, quite fruity (pears, apples), with some spicy and herbal notes and a bit of a sweet perfume (floral). It’s much better as it warms to nearly room temperature. Flavor is quite sweet, light and fruity, with some malt to it, and the same mustiness as the aroma. The finish is medium, and also sweet. Overall, not bad, but really nothing special.
