Amber pour. Some wood apple and tartness aroma. Pear apple oak and some tart flavors but minimal. Light body and livEly carbonation. Enjoyable.

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 (12789) - 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.

SHIG (3667) - 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.

furthur (214) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Bottle pour, cap actually says 2014. Cloudy mahogany colored body, thin white head fades to a skiff, leaving decent lacing. Aroma is malt and faint barrel funk, raisins and ripe fruit. Flavor is malt, lightly spicy, peach. Finish is faintly bitter. Body is light, carbonation subdued.
