Sampled at the brewery on 3/21/2013. This Bière de Garde pours a medium amber brown color from the tap. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and sweet, caramel and spicy. A medium bodied Bière de Garde. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are earthy, herbal and spicy. Nice carbonation. Good balance between the sweetness and spices. Hides the 7.4% alcohol very well. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly spicy.
