3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle into a 2 oz snifter style glass. Pours a soft copper toned color with a foamed white head. The aroma has some fruitiness while mainly consisting of a yeasty and spiced nose. The flavor brings a heavy spice hint at first that moves into somewhat of a yeasty and peppery citrusy malt taste. I feel like there is some grass notes intertwined in there as well. The finish continues on the spice hoppy note, which lingers for a relative moment. Very herbal, quite light bodied. Good to see some more Biere de Garde’s making there way towards the States. Overall, quietly enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale golden cloudy pour. Thick sticky white head. The nose is malty and lightly musty. A little bit of light caramelly sweetness over an odd musty, basementy character. A fairly distinct pale malt character on the back with a light minerality on the back. It’s dry and spicy, but also oddly bland. I really want to like this, but I don’t.
