egajdzis (5277) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 6, 2013
[2010 bottle] hazy brown amber color with a large, off white head that leftnicelacing lacing on the glass. Aroma of sweeter caramel malts, light cardboard, hay, rustic, light alcohol. Taste of caramel, wood, earthy yeast, faint alcohol, and prickly carbonation.

Sampled on draft. Mostly clear amber-brown pour with a small off-white head sitting atop the beer. The aroma lacks the funk I associate with McKenzie beers (as it should, being a non-wild beer as far as I know). Caramel malts, spice, and slight Belgian yeast present. The flavor is nice. Caramel, nuts, spice, and earth, mildly sweet with a considerable Belgian yeast presence. Medium-bodied with average carbonation and a slight dryness on the palate. Tasty beer overall, good for the style.

GABF 2010, very good biere de garde, right up there wih La Bavasienne in terms of the best i’ve had. seemed pretty strong inABV terms for a biere de garde. spicy filled maltiness, loaded up flavor, active mouthfeel. Good stuff
