Amber with a thin head. Creamy mouth and full. Taste is classic Biere de Garde but is amped up a little bit with more sweetness. Some caramel. There is a slight metallic taste. Overall not bad, but this style has never been a favorite of mine.

poured from tap into a tulip. Pours a nice medium orange/gold color with a good foamy head. Very good and balanced aromas of grains, herbs, citrus notes and some bits of spices and leather. Very good complexity but lacking a slight bit of depth. Very fresh and balanced medium/full body with a nice feel. The finish is a bit clipped and the mid is lacking a slight bit with notes of grains, herbs, spices and some citrus. A nice and refreshing biere de garde. This was done quite well and was enjoyable.

Growler purchased at the brewpub after work. Poured into my Stone tulip glass. Bastille pours a hazy deep brownish orange in color with about a fingers worth of off-white head. Head dissipates rather quickly to a still surface. Nose is a mix of saison and belgian yeast. There is clove, banana, and some grass. Flavor follows the nose in terms of the belgian yeast characteristics but it is accompanied by some pepper and tartness. There is also some light malt/breadiness on the finish. Light mouthfeel, moderately dry, some sweetness, moderate carbonation, and a medium finish. Nice beer! I love the Biere de Garde style and wasn’t sure what to expect from this, but it was a pleasant surprise. It could be a complete failure, but I would love to see how this would be after aging in some wine barrels.
