JorgeLee (1699) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2012
Bottle picked up at La Fromagerie in Marylebone. Cool bottle design. Orange-tan colour, white head. Spicy yeasty character, grainy malt, very light hopping. Quite subtle but very flavoursome, I think the best biere de garde I’ve had.

WISEGUY572 (1377) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 20, 2007
More of a great saison than a biere de garde. Hazy amber, big white head, nose of yeast. Taste is sweet caramel, yeast and bready, pepper and spice. Sweet and spicey finish.

glkaiser (1214) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 13, 2007
Bottle from the Monk. Nice cloudy copper with huge off white creamy head. Musty aroma with a slight bit of hops. Musty almost moldy taste really just didn’t do it for me.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - DEC 28, 2005
Bottled. 750ml. Pours murky, light copper color with a whitish hue. Big white head that leaves heavy lacing. Aroma smells like corn or rice with some yeast and coriander-like notes. Thick viscosity but a somewhat watery taste. Spicy with some slight fruit flavors. Somewhat medicinal. Dry, bitter finish that seems out of balance.

pkbites (858) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 5, 2010
Cloudy orangy pour. Smells bready/caramel like a bock. Smooth caramel flavor. Little malt/hops in the aftertaste. It’s rather nice.

9/19/07 From the bottle. Aroma is fruity malt forward, then biscuity, woody, with light phenols and caramel, with no hop notes. Appearance is Gold, clear, with a medium off-white head. Flavor is grainy, munich maltiness forward with a solid medium bittering balance. There is a strong hard water note that extends into the finish and no hop character, and this remains a very clean flavor. Mouthfeel is grainy, metallic, medium bodied, with medium/high carb feel and light warmth. Overall, this is very good with a nice complexity.
