ekoerper (589) - Iowa, USA - JUN 4, 2012
Aroma: fruity and quite vinous, bready yeast note, spicy hops, light pepper character, touch of booze. Pours a slightly hazy light amber color, off-white head is lasting and leaves a nice coating of lacing. Flavor: toasty malts, lots of wine notes, fruity esters, plums, some pepper and spice, earthy and a soft acidity, alcohol is noticeable but mellow. Medium body and carbonation. Very enjoyable brew.

MilkOfTheOld (3) - - MAY 20, 2012 does not count
Served on draft at local beer bar. A cloudy look matches a somewhat thick palate. Sour in taste, similar to same brewery’s Trebuchet saison, but heavier on the mouth. Taste of apple comes through as well. Not my favorite style but well-done in that style.

Sampled at City Tavern with brewmaster Dave sitting next to me. Kinda cool. Pours a bright orange. Crisp with a lingering flavor. Nice light hoppy notes along with a touch of vanilla.

swoopjones (5888) - Buffalo, New York, USA - SEP 20, 2010
GABF 2010. Very good Biere de Garde. spice, pot pourri like purfuminess. Dash of sweet maltiness n this golden colored ale. Maybe a tad too sweet but still quite good in my book

MartinT (7811) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 16, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 20, 2010 My Bottom Line:
This dignified Bière de Garde joins lightly toasted malts, spicy noble hops and bready yeast into an authentic example of the style one rarely sees so far from French shores.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the hazy amber.
-The hop signature also offers citrusy angles, ending in mildly leafy bitterness.
-Subtle oranges add complexity.
-This example is polished and rustic at once, a true testament to this brewer’s ability.

On tap at the brewpub.

On tap at Ladyface. Pours with a large white head that leaves good lace over a hazed gold to copper body. Aroma is dry, grainy, tannic, dry wine, light pepper. Taste is caramel, bread, light vinous and tannic wood. Lightly herbal. Great biere de garde. Lively bubbles, dry.
