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!

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.

Bottle. Golden-orange, effervescent, and nicely topped with white foam. The aroma wafts several feet, fruity and full of esther. This drinks with a soda-like mouthfeel, rich with farmhouse flavors -- musty wood, garden herbs, bit of spice. (#4972, 4/7/2013)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
The beer pours a hazy golden yellow color with a white head. The aroma is full of grain and wheat, with a hint of orange thrown in. The flavor is more of the same. I get a lot of juicy orange notes, as well as a ton of coriander and wheat. This beer tastes like a Belgian witbier on steroids. I like most of what I taste but there is too much coriander in the beer for me to be a huge fan. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
