thedm (4948) - Fort Wayne, USA - SEP 8, 2009
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of all foam finely sized white colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a hazy softly carbonated yellow colored body. The complex aroma was malty and farmhouse like. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and strongly tingly at the finish. The complex flavor contained notes of malt mild hops and floral. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

AmEricanbrew (5857) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - SEP 1, 2009
Hazy orange color with a rocking lingering head. Dry hay aroma with some celery. Light/medium body. Nice dusty pale malt flavors with dry hay and dry spices. Think not wet.

gearbike (512) - West Bloomfield, Michigan, USA - JUN 1, 2009
Light color with more of a fizz then a head. Very light no real farm house funkness. A bit of sweetness and hops. Very straightforwad.

Bottle from Ledgers. Hazy orange with a fluffy white head. Crisp citrus bread and earthy straw aroma and taste. Good.

scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - DEC 4, 2008
I swear this smells like typical euro lager and a hint of coriander. hazy gold and yellow. sustained white head. cap came off with a -whiff- followed closely by a gush of beer. muted around, even when warmed. metallic finish.

bhensonb (11248) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 28, 2008
Bottle from Ledgers in Berkeley, CA. BB 30/04/10. Hazy orangey color with a fizzy white head that didn’t stick. Aromas of citrus, taffy, funk and likely lots of other stuff. Near medium body with fizzy/frothy carbonation. Flavor is earthy, mildly funky, with a little citrus. It seems quite well balanced. Spices or herbs do strange things to my mouth. Maybe there are real flowers involved. I really like this stuff. Hey, it’s a biere de garde. Got to love it.

hotstuff (4139) - Indiana, USA - JUL 31, 2008
Bottle with a best consumed before 10/07/09 date. Large semi-frothy white head that mostly diminished, good lacing, semi-transparent, semi-hazy, slow rising carbonation, and a yellow golden hue. The aroma was yeasty, sweet, some wheat, spicy, and fruity. The flavor was sweet, fruity, mildly spicy, yeasty, and a little funky tasting. The mouthfeel was watery and thin Light bodied beer. Quaffable, easy to drink, just an okay beer for me as I could not get into the taste of it so it left me not wanting this one again.

Hazy orange, moderate head with good lacing and retention. Aroma is yeast, spice, somewhat fruity, grass, funk. Medium bodied, fairly dry. Fairly interesting, quite enjoyable.

damienv10 (108) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 8, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2010 Opaque orange with a thick, rich, white foamy head. Fresh orange, mint, lavender, cinnamon, ginger, and sweet apple make up the subtle but complex nose. Lively carbonation makes the beer crisp without stinging you. This is light for a biere de garde. If it was a little less hoppy I would swear it’s a saison. Dry malt flavors with a hint of fruit, a bit of sourness, some spice, and a small punch of hops make up the flavor profile. More intense nose than palate. This isn’t a bad beer it’s just not as sturdy as most beers of it’s style.
