3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The 22oz bomber pours clear gold with an off white head of foam. The aroma is earthy gravel, orange, lemon and lime. Interesting and oddly inviting. The taste is smooth with earthy sweet apple to pear to orange like fruitiness with a gravel sort of earthiness off in the background. Enjoyable product with enough depth to keep it interesting.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, shared with my in-laws. Hazy orange-tinted gold. Very doughy yeasty aroma, some brothy character like cooked noodles, lightly cheesy. Doughy, yeasty body of flavours, brightened by some orange and spice. Intriguing to me, but not a favourite.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing.
Body is dark yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, cereal), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, apricot), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with strong notes of candy sugar / cotton candy, other notes of pear syrup, gum, unripe peach, egg whites.
Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Medium body, syrupy texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic.
Uhhhhh...wut? Biere de Garde? Not even close. "Intentionally dry"? Huh??? Compared to what, a mouthful of stevia? The harsh reality is that this is a goopy, syrupy sweet sugar bomb. Cloying and unbalanced and totally without any BdG traits. Awful and undrinkable. Gack!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle:   Orangish straw, pale haze, moderate frothy white head, little lacing.   Non-descript floral nose, a little honeydew melon perhaps.   Soft, musty, and warming like yeasty breadiness.   Has a soft floral
aspect that is lighter than the nose suggested.   Not as musty or barnish as others, but with more punch and muted spicy bits.   Hard to believe this is actually 9%!   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.
Yeasty/doughy/bready finish, but not too heavy or musty.   Comes across as way lighter than the 9% implies.   A bit too easy to drink.   Enjoyed it more than those from France!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at ebp. Pours a hazy medium gole with a loose white head. Big funky nose--nice barnyard effect. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Tangy oranges, basement, and minerals on the mid palate. Dry and pretty interesting. Could be a little livelier and more complex.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour from a bottle at the brewery. Pours a bright, semi-cloudy gold that is deeper orange at the wider part of the glass and has a small white head. Notes of sweet and bready malts, melon, dried papaya, dry dough, and some farmhouse funk. Medium-bodied, with a sweet, dry, bready mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Nice BDG.
