3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber. Mostly clear, golden color with a foamy white head. Aroma is a mixture of yeast, sourdough and citrus. Funky cheese-like flavor. Leaves a slight sour aftertaste that makes your mouth pucker. Average carbonation with a mostly dry texture. Different, but I preferred the traditional Biere de Garde previously offered in this series.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A healthy dose of citrus n’ spice on the nose. Pours crystal clear, bright yellow pilsner hue. Slightly tart with a nice dry finish, the Vivant farmhouse yeast is well represented. I think the only problem I have with this Beir de Garde is starting gravity or mash temp may have been too high resulting in too think of a mouthfeel (almost syrupy like). Other then that no complaints. Lips of Faith treats us well.
