vyvvy (3951) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAR 5, 2010
Pours hazy orange / amber with a small off-white head. The aroma has the biere de garde maltiness, but is considerably sweeter with an almost candy sugar like presence.& light nuttiness. Medium body that has biting carbonation. The taste is drier than the aroma with a papery aspect interwoven with the aroma traits along with some lemony sourness. The finish has a hint of peach. Okay beer.

blankboy (6023) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 12, 2010
Bottle [750ml] shared w/ friends at the ’2nd Annual Buffalo Cask Festival’ -- c/o swoopjones. Pours a hazy orange-copper with a spare creamy off-white head. Aroma’s weird, and not in a good way. It’s malty along with yeast and fruit but there’s an oddness to it that I can’t describe that I did not care for. Watery, somewhat sweet flavour of citrus fruit, light spices, caramel and alcohol. Dry, spicy finish. Average bodied. Just O.K.

beerguy101 (5278) - Newark, California, USA - FEB 4, 2010
Sampled on 1/8/2010. This Biere de Garde pours a medium orange gold color from a 75cl swing-top bottle. Medium to small sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and sweet, with a touch of honey. A medium bodied Biere de Garde. The malts are caramel, fruity and sweet. The hops are earthy. Nice balance. Slightly sweet. A very drinkable, but not remarkable winter ale. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet
