3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
(This one was aged 10 months.) A hazy orange-yellow beer with a crisp white head. Aroma is of fresh green apples, candy, a bit of spicy apple pie. Rich fruity flavors with an interesting ’baked goods’ thing, like an apple cinnamon muffin. A pretty unique beer in terms of its flavor. Some gentle bitterness comes along in the finish and provides a bit of astringency. Mouthfeel is very creamy and silky, but perhaps slightly on the thin side. Nice crisp astringent finish. Overall a really good beer, definitely enjoyed it a lot!

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
From Notes, 4/16/12:
Poured a 22oz bottle into Duvel Tulip. No apparent bottling or best by date.
A: Cloudy orange with 2 finger rocky white head. Sporadic lacing down the glass as the head dissipates after a few minutes.
S: A lot going on here. Lemon & orange stand out the most. Faint bitterness and lots of spiciness. Coriander, maybe?
T: Taste follows the nose. Citrus up front with some funky yeast. Spices in the middle and slightly bitter hop finish.
M: Juicy and medium-bodied. Carbonation is good for this lighter style.
O: My first Biere de garde; I really enjoyed it. Easy to drink, but has nice complexity. Like New Belgium often does, it encourages you to go seek out more of a style.

Pours pale yellow/lt amber with a thin white head. Aroma is faint but has some mild bretty funk and fruitiness. Flavor is lightly dusty with some leathery funk...bretty...mild spice...clove or allspice? Mouthfeel is medium with a light bretty finish...pleasant.
