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.

Bottle at the Falstaff, rue de la Dunkerque, Paris. Dark golden colour with a great white head. Aroma is malty, sweet and buttterscotch, as is the taste. Full bodied, moderately carbonated. Excellent.

chriso (7365) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2004
Rich gold colour. Limited carbonation. A veritable fruit cocktail in the aroma - oranges, grapes, various tropical fruits. Sweet malt too and a touch of sugar candy. Although the mouthfeel is a little sticky, there’s some hop presence, a fair amount of acidity and a hint of bitterness to cut through. Well-balanced. Sweet and sour finish, with a pronounced alcoholic afterburn. Like Joris, I didn’t pick up much wheat character at all. Although there’s a lot going on in this beer, it all comes together rather nicely. Impressive. 750 ml bottle from onlyfinebeer. BBE 31 August 2004.

Clear golden beer; slim white head, fast gone. Grapes (white and sweet) in the nose, orange liqueur, raisins. Again a sharp, but at the same time very refined liqueur taste, bit citrussy, bit of cocos too. Very well-bodied, slick and alcohol obvious. Higher alcohols as well, IMO. Extremely fine-flavoured, but strong winey ale (winey as in dessert wine). Just one thing: absolutely no wheat character, despite the guaranteed 30%...

fiulijn (14556) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 18, 2004
Hazy golden color; poor head. Nice aroma, of malt, winy, flowers, sweet, a bit alcoholic. Rather sweet, light malt, light peach fruitness. Drinkable, but simple.

UPDATED: AUG 11, 2004 Big head. Full, a bit sweet and. Very smooth texture. Extremely long lasting bitter aftertaste. I like the label too (-:

RichardGretton (4247) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2003
Biere de Garde with a very light frothy head. The flavour and aroma is very malty with citric bitterness. The beer has a syrupy texture which makes it a very sweet drink, but overall it is good to drink.

pilsnerrogge (2500) - Finspång, SWEDEN - OCT 25, 2002
Deep golden, slightly hazy, colour. Medium head. Wonderful toffee-aroma with a touch of citrus. Fullbodied and somewhat malty. The alcohol adds a late bitterness. I wish I had more bottles of this!

UPDATED: NOV 1, 2004 Handsome minty, lime zesty herbs become a herd of troubadours warbling ballads of fine caramel, wheat and flowers…The notes they play are catchy, candy-sweet and remain on the palate, while keeping the experience deep and meaningful…When the chorus of cereal and fruity bubblegum rises, this humble taster is pleased by its persistence and subtlety…A wonderfully light and festive atmosphere is created in the French countryside…
