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.

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

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.

Oak aged version of the Tripel. I liked this one much better - the wood dried out the syrupy sweetness and also calmed down some of the carbonation. I actually enjoyed the dry hopped version even better that was also available when we were at the brewpub.

Draught at the restaurant watching the Tour de California. I’m not a big fan of Biere de Gardes but this was phenomenal; I think the wine barrels really made it special. It pours very still. A ruby-orange and brown colour with a small off-white head the quickly disappears/ The aroma is pink grapefruit, chardonnay and strawberries. Definitely fits the biere de garde style from the earthy, metallic notes (not bad, that’s just my crutch for IDing the style). Definitely white wine notes that trend from a dry chardonnay to Mosel Rieslings. Lasting wine finish.
