An interpretation Biere de Garde made with 30% wheat.

Belle blonde qui titre 7°, composée de malt d’orge et de froment, quelques épices lui donnent un parfum d’agrumes qui font sa notoriété depuis plus de 30 ans.

Good classical "bière de garde" beer with a lot of flowery/spicy aroma and taste. Alcohol is not too present, sweet bitterness, quite refreshing.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - JUN 12, 2006
Bottle (750ml, Utobeer): Golden, short white lasting head. Spicy aroma with some grainy, biscuity malts. Flavour is quite simple, clean malts and spicy, floral hops. No real funk, but a slight citrus edge. Refreshing.

Bottled. Golden colour, not much head. Aroma is caramel, malts, hops and flowery hints. Flavour is caramel, melts and some honeyish hints. Strong flowery hoppy notes also. Dry palate.

Bottled (BB 11/2006)
Golden color, not much head. Fruity and fresh hoppy aroma. Hoppy bitter, lemony, almost IPA-like French. Good maltyness and nice hop profile. Tasty.

UPDATED: JAN 31, 2006 After drinking French biere de gardes and Belgian abbeys for several months, the uniqueness of the hops in this one really struck me. It pours an unpromising, average, gold color with a fluffy, white, fine-bubbled head. The nose is the best I’ve ever encountered, and was the first signal that this was not as terrible as most of the beers in the north of France. Flowers and sweet spice dominate the nose. The taste is lightly acidic up front with a strong punch of fruit - perhaps a sweet, light-colored fruit like a mango or a peach. The alcohol is hidden tastefully, and the finish is a very malty-wheat trail with a lasting but soft aftertaste. This is superb.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 6, 2005
Bottle. A fairly sweet, soft bere de garde, creamy mouthfeel, with notes of peaches and orange. Some caramelised sort of flavours, very soft, with some herbal bitterness. This was very nice.

caesar (5879) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - OCT 8, 2005
Shared a bottle with NoiZe and skortila. Hazy orange golden color, off-white lasting head. Aroma is very strong, penetrating orange and citrus, with a hint of alcohol, bubblegum, caramel malt. Taste is sweet and fruity, slight alcohol burn. Long aftertaste.

skortila (4867) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - OCT 7, 2005
Bottle best before june 2005. Aroma is heavy fruity, mostly orange. Malts and hops in it. Quite fresh. Hazy (tiny particles), orange coloured brew with a nice lasting head. It’s taste is not as pleasant as it’s smell. perhaps slightly unbalanced. Some sugar in it (sweetness), very fruity (orange and some other citrus), bit hoppy and malty. Decent body.
