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.

Quack-Duck (9164) - Down South, GERMANY - NOV 14, 2009
0.75l bottle from Village de la Bière Strasbourg France. Clear golden colour with a quickly disappearing fluffy white head. Fruity-spicy nose: peach, violets, vanilla and honey. Intensively malty with some very fragrant hops and hints of vanilla, flowers (violet?), honey, peach, mango and a spicy background. A very interesting perfumy beer, despite its 7% ABV it seems light and summery, highly quaffable.

KnutAlbert (6713) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 2, 2009
On tap at Au Trappiste, Paris. Very fruity, a bit sweet. Over-ripe peaches along with other soft fruit. A little bitter almond in the tail. Quaffable, you hardly feel the alcohol. (Available on tap elsewhere in Paris as well - September 09)

bhensonb (14162) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 25, 2009
Pression at Au Trappistes. Light amber color with a fluffy white head. Aromas of malt and spice. Full bodied with mild carbonation. It is spicey in a peppery way. Very light, slightly fruity and extremely refreshing. Finished toward dry. Different, and very good. Note: I don’t disagree with thebeertourist [below].

Lubiere (12939) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 7, 2008
Golden ale with a thick creamy white head. Nice spicey hops with lemony notes, some honey. Sweet malt with lots of honey, some bitterness, very dense, but overall, unidimensional. Tasted Spring 2006.

JoeinDahlem (1456) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - AUG 26, 2008
Lovely gold-foiled bottle from Cave a Bulles in Paris. Why is this a biére de garde on RB? Only because it’s French? Doesn’t matter. Pours bright and gold with a thin white head. Nose starts slightly skunky but that fades to reveal lemon, lemongrass and grassy hops. Inviting. Very light grainy sweetness, faint lemony tartness, and a moderate bitterness riding on sparkling mouthfeel, going pretty dry with a lightly bitter aftertaste. Damned interesting and refreshing.

yngwie (16518) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 17, 2008
Bottle, thx to fonefan. A clear, golden beer with a white head. Malty and fruity aroma, rather boring and weak. Pale malt, sugar and a weak caramel in the flavor. Some bitterness towards the finish. Medium body. Quite quaffable beer, but also quite boring. (080412)

thebeertourist (5187) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 9, 2008
On tap at Au Trappiste, Paris. Clear red amber with a big offwhite head. Spicy aroma, hints of ginger bread. Hints of ginger and rye, subtle, but noticeable bitterness, especially towards the finish. Unassuming, but quite an impressive little ale.
