2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Murky light orange-amber with a bubbly white head, lightly grainy. Lightly earthy, bubblegum, a bit overly sweet. Flavor some bitterness to hit the jaw, light yeast and dough. A bit overcarbonated, harsh grainy finish though a bit of spice saves the finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a slightly hazy deep golden bronze with a spotty-lacing white head. Has a lightly sweet toasty light caramel malty nose with a touch of piny grassy hops and doughy yeast. Starts with good fullness and a chewy caramel malty sweetness with good bitter hop balance and authenticity before a drier crisp finish. A fairly true to style and drinkable biere de garde.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Minimally cloudy gold/red pour. Thick whitish head. Slightly citrus aroma. Medium bitterness and some slight sourness. Almost salty but not quite. Very slight buttery aftertaste that lingers.
It isn’t really my kind of beer.
