brokensail (11542) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 10, 2012
A hazy golden orange color with a white head. Good fruitiness on the nose, mostly citrus, but a little bit of peach. Grass, straw, and must give a soft funkiness. A touch of oak, white wine, and lemon zest. The flavor has a nice peach quality along with mild tartness of lemon. Lots of straw, a moderate oak note along with some drying tannins. A light malt flavor, mostly just bread. The nose is a bit better than the flavor, but enjoyable.

[ Keg ][ Brewbies 2014 ][ 4oz ][ Brewbies Flared Mini Pint ][ Free ][ 3/1/14 ]
>> There are probably many versions of this beer all collapsed into this entry given their rarity/rarity of ratebeerians in general. This version was 7.1%, 100% Mourvedre Barrel Aged. Low haze orange pour. Nose is excellent buttery oak barrel, fresh bourbon more than red wine. Taste is clean, mild alcohol stickiness, candied orange, oak, paper. Tannic, pepper finish. Interesting as always from Ladyface but with the characteristic harsh palate that seems to be a universal problem with their beers.

MartinT (8135) - 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.

BMan1113VR (7869) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUN 13, 2010
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.

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
