Bomber from SHIG. Poured like a glass of apple cider, deep hazed brown body with a smaller frothy beige head. Aroma of apples, wood, vanilla, earth, fruity. Body is medium at best but carbonation is stronger. Flavor of tonic water, apple skins, oak, earth, fruit, toast.

Duchammer (124) - Eagle river, Alaska, USA - DEC 31, 2014
Bottle poured hazy bronish red with a white lace. Aroma was nice oak notes fruity sour green apple. I get a lot of sweet stone fruit such as peach and pear subtle oak to taste which I feel it gives a slight bitterness. Finishes dry. Fun beer.

Bulk_Carrier (2782) - Final Resting Place, Vermont, USA - SEP 28, 2014
This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a dark hazy brown color with a thin half finger white foamy head that must have stuck for at least a good three minutes. Wow, nice retention. The lacing seemed to be slightly minimal, no worries, it mostly looked good to me. The smell had a nice malted fruit - pear and granny Smith apples, light clove - like spice. But then a nice sweet citrus came in a nice way. The taste was sweet with a nice light spice, light apple, and clove spice. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a decent sipping quality about it. The carbonation seemed barely there, however, no worries, as this one had a really nice citrus to spice rolling over my tongue in its texture. Overall, biere de garde, well, I liked it for me, but honestly I haven’t had too many of these. I’d still have this again.

Oakes (13600) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 20, 2014
Hazy brownish-amber, aroma is tart, lightly fruity. Tart, muddy malts and a yeasty finish. No idea what they’re going for here. I know BdG is a meaningless style term, but this doesn’t seem close to any BdG I’ve had, so I really didn’t get this one at all.

jtclockwork (11057) - , New Jersey, USA - SEP 9, 2014

SHIG (3982) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - JUL 4, 2014
Bottled: Poured a murky orange brown with a off white to tan cream head. Get a lot of that oaky wood aroma in the nose. Taste is thick vanilla with nice sweet malts, light alcohol burn and a dry finish.
