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.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 23, 2013
Bottle, 75 cl at hotel balcony, Paris. Spicy, sweet, citrussy, slightly farty, wheaty, grainy, light light hoppy. Complex yet rustic. Craftmanship. Works well on a hot day, but not a beer that I would consider buying again.

Robe paille avec une bonne carbo et un collet bien dense. Aromes fruites tirant sur la peche. Bonne rondeur et bon equilibre.

psilosophy (560) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - MAR 12, 2013
Bouteille de 33 cl. Couleur dorée, léger trouble. Mousse moyenne, pas de tenue. Très surpris car ce n’est pas du tout ce à quoi je m’attendais. Une bière très fruitée avec des arômes de pêche, abricot, melon. L’air de rien, cette bière réussit le challenge de donner une entame sucrée, avec de légères pointes acides, pour enfin retomber dans une légère amertume. J’ai été un peu décontenancé par les premières gorgées mais au fil de la dégustation, j’ai su apprécier la valeur de cette bière singulière. Expérience à réitérer en tous cas. Trouvée à L’entrepôt - Courrières

33cl bottle. 2013-10. From a friend. Poured a pale golden colour with a minimal white head. Small amount of carbonation. Aroma is fruity with notes of apples and pears as well as wheat. Some faint hints of spices. Flavour is subtle. Mostly pears, some apples. Hints of wheat and spices as well as bananas. Carbonation is subtle. A nice and refreshing beer.

Swaroga (1757) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 19, 2013
75cl bottle. Light golden with small white head. We can see the bubbles. Nose : strong fruity notes like apple, pear, peach. Some cooked cherries and caramel. Fruity tart. Sip : well carbonated, oily and creamy texture. Light body. Sweet and fruity. Esters are tasty and apart fruity flavors it develops straw flavors. It leaves sweet and lightly sour aftertaste. Overall it is a bot too sweet for my taste.

This biere de garde is flirting with tripel territory. Nice hazy golden color with slick head, aroma of hay, grass, honey and hops. Taste is wonderful, again like a triple, smooth bitterness, mouthfeel is heavy and oily. Perfect!
