j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - OCT 4, 2009
Bottle courtesy of Joe at Peter’s tasting. Pours a lightly murky golden amber with a medium sized white head. Big hay and subtle lemon, dusty yeast. Spicy, nice yeast flavors. Finishes crisp and dry with more light yeast. Tasty.

deyholla (6481) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - FEB 11, 2014
Bottle at RBWG, thanks! Pours a hazy earthy gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has an earthy grain/hay note with a bit of bread backing. Flavor has earthy grain and citrus with a bit of bitter citrus in the finish.

DuffMan (6438) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 28, 2011
Bottle, shared @ the Purple Pig. Light golden, hazy, with a solid frothy white head that holds beautifully. Very interesting aroma that required some careful consideration to pin down. Both fruity and vegetal at the same time, like starfruit, or guava and celery, with creamy undertones. Flavours lean toward vegetal and lightly herbal, with straw-like malts. Creamy mouthfeel. Very fresh and lively.

marcus (6303) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 27, 2005
This light golden ale pours with a very short white head, with considerable sediment throughout the pour. The flavor is pleasantly malty. A very nice brew.

Ernest (6143) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 18, 2007
Bottle (BB 09/08). Head is initially large, frothy, off-white, fully lasting. Body is hazy medium amber, bottle conditioned. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately yeasty (barnyard, basement), with notes of wood, autumn leaves, and dried fruit. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation. A great, rustic, farmy de-garde/saison style brew.

Glouglouburp (5936) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 29, 2006
Cloudy orange-brown body with a medium beige head. A cool wild, spicy, saison-ish aroma emanates from my glass, the type of aroma I can smell for minutes before taking my first sip. Taste is very much a thick earthy fruit juice with pulp and everything (no particular fruit, a bunch of them), plenty of herbs and spices, saison-ish yeast, and a fruity tartness. Like a drinking body said, I would have believed this was a new Fantôme. Interesting experiment, a bit out-there. Once again a French beer with “Bière De Garde” written on the label when it clearly isn’t one. I’m starting to believe they think “Bière De Garde” is English and means “Made in France”.

AmEricanbrew (5575) - 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.

badlizard (5539) - Berkeley, California, USA - APR 22, 2009
Bottle from Ledgers. Hazy orange with a fluffy white head. Crisp citrus bread and earthy straw aroma and taste. Good.

( 750ml bottle best by 11/24/09 thanks to bu11zeye) Pours cloudy yellow with nice head, and good lacing. Nose of bready yeast and spices. Taste of coriander, earth, cilantro with a creamy and well carbonated finish.
