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.

JesseM (1155) - Margaritaville, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 18, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2012 33cl bottle, Cellier des Arcades. Pours a nice clear gold with a small white head. Aroma: nice malt character, slightly peppery, definitely with zing to it. Flavour: Delicious malt body, mildly grainy, slight dryness from the wheat, zing in the finish, lingering rich malty-boozy flavours. Feels medium on the palate, not too rich but not too light, and in balance with the alcoholic content. Very enjoyable, a conservative rendition of the style despite the addition of wheat, but one that pleases my palate.

laiti (7742) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 15, 2012
75 cl bottle as ”L’Angelus Origin’Ale” @ Gastropub Tuulensuu, BBE 04/2013
It seems that this brewery is actually called ”Brasserie Lepers” and located in Annoeullin
Aroma is rather fruity and strong on apricot. Also some soapy citrus. Flavour has soapy citrus, some apricot, fruit sugar, honey and hints of spices. The sweetness gets stronger towards the end of the glass. Not your typical Bière de Garde, reminds me of De Hemel Marikenbier (which is a Belgian Ale).

Koelschtrinker (14079) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 26, 2012
Laff herber Beginn, immerhin weich. Spritzig, muffige Hefigkeit. Leicht herb, ok aber eher langweilig. Trockener, sehr herber Abgang. /8/9/9//9

dinkle50 (1182) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 21, 2012
Hazy gold pour with a small thin head that collapsed quickly. No lacing. Aroma of apples and a hint of grain. Taste is very light and mild. Some sweetness from the wheat but mostly sweet fruit flavors. Mouth stings a little. An interesting take on the style.

BlackHaddock (5190) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2012
Green cork and caged 75cl bottle obtained from Noel Cuvelier’s Farm Shop in Belgium and shared with friends. The beer was poured into four ’Schossbrau’ pilsner vase shapped glasses, ones I often use for sparkling wines. The beer suited the glasses, a huge snow white head of large bubbles covered half the glasses, below sat a clear golden body which looked very lager/pilsner like. The head left a lot of lacing as the beer levels fell. Very little aroma, some hop esters and grass hints. The taste had a lager/pilsner/helles feel to it, hoppy more than malty. I thought it interesting, different and most enjoyable. Easy to drink (too easy) and glad I bought it, another good French beer.
