I'd saved this bottle about three years, and was concerned about how well it had held up. Shouldn't have been! Rich and fruity. Hazy gold. Improving greatly as it warms up from the too cold refrigerator. I love it and want more.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
75cl bottle shared at Biervana, danke. Full golden amber pour. Redolent of wild honey, baker’s malt enlivened by orchard fruit peel. Doughy but pleaant medium mouthfeel, tying the style-definining bready tastes into a fruitier abbey ale yeast profile, topping it off with a heavier hand of West Coast hops, substituting peach and orange peel for peppery Northern French grasses. Pleasant execution of a broad, potentially heavy-handed style.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy golden amber body with fluffy white head that settles quickly. Aromas of funky yeast, grass, and floral notes contain an underlying mustiness. Tastes of apricot, white grapes, and a bit of sourness. Dry finish with a touch of honey. Very smooth, very pleasant.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Pours a hazy light orange with a nice white head. Malty nose, grains and honey. Taste follows suit. Almost like a fuller-bodied Kolsch to me. Hard to fault the mouthfeel/palate. This style tends to leave something to be desired for me, but this is a nice example.

Draft at Barrel Republic. Pours hazy gold with a creamy, bubbly white head. Tastes like dry toasted malt, citrus, light herb, light spice, dried fruit. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like light herb, light spice, light citrus, and fermenting fruit.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap from JC’s. Nose very malty, touch of booze, floral, lightly toasty, very slight apple and a touch off-yeast character. Very slightly spicy, overall fresh and natural. Pours rich, deep golden that leans toward orange, white soapy head. Taste is semi-dry with medium bitterness, malty overall with minimal hops, soft and smooth (luscious, even) medium body with a steady foundation of citrus and a thin layer of high alcohol. Bready finish after floral character throughout. Great (bigger) table beer, though the fermentation seems to have been on the raw side.

I like my Biere de garde with more malt intensity. Enjoyable nonetheless. At karma cafe.
