5oz on tap at the brewpub. Clear orange color. Thin off-white head kind of cream colored head. Some loose bits of lace. Good big beglian kind of saison yeast in the aroma, a lot of fruitiness to it, light herbal and spice flavors. Fruity, like peach, light banana. Medium body. Smooth, lightly soft, lighter carbonation. More slick finish. Moderate sweet taste, light to moderate bitter, light spiciness. Solid hoppy flavorful biere de garde. Not as biere de garde-y as other biere de gardes, and a nice amount of fruitiness and hop carries it.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - JUL 14, 2012
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy, orange-amber colored body with a finger-width, creamy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is bready pale malts with a light caramel sweetness along with a Belgian yeast phenol giving off some banana, a light clove, and a touch of peppery citrus. Some toastiness to the malts as well as a light tartness. Flavor is similar. A bigger, pale bready maltiness with some caramel up front as well as a Belgian yeastiness. Some light pepper in the middle with a touch of citrus and a light banana and clove before this finishes somewhat malty sweet with a touch of toast and a light citrus tartness. Light, earthy bitterness before leaving a fairly lengthy aftertaste following a medium-full body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a decent beer. Big bready malts with some caramel sweetness and a good amount of Belgian yeast giving off some banana and a light clove note. A touch of citrus tartness at the end to keep things interesting. Not my favorite from Revolution, but not bad.

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.

drowland (6169) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - AUG 26, 2012
8/11/12. GTMW. Amber pour with a nice khaki head. Spicy, estery yeast aroma with bits of spice, mint, and fruit on top of some caramel. Lightly spicy, yeasty, estery flavor with touches of mint and rubber tire on top of the caramel and malty aspects. Not bad.

deyholla (7017) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 15, 2012
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear reddish amber with a near white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a lot a good amount of fruit and spice with a bit of a sweet grain backbone. Flavor has more of an earthy grain/bread start that’s joined by light fruit and spice in the finish.

GJF (1279) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - JUL 19, 2012
On tap at the brewpub. Copper color. Some malty, bready character to it, but no real yeast or spice. Drinkable but I didn’t find a lot to it.

Lubiere (10485) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 8, 2014
A reddish amber ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, sweet fruity malt with light plums and caramel, light mineral notes, barley candy. In mouth, a sweet fruity caramel malt with light vinous notes, a bit of mineral character, OK. On tap at brewery.

Another typical fruity belgium beer. Hoppy and bitter finish. Smells fruity and pours orange in color. Had at revolution brewing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
