75 cl bottle @ Timo A. BBE 03/2010
Pours clear mahogany color with a small head, a bit lively. Aroma has quite a lot of ripe fruits, caramel malts, some mild spices and some yeast. Flavor is a bit watery, spices, caramel malts and ripe fruits, plums and raisins on the front, some distant berries also. Probably one of the best Biere de Gardes I’ve tasted, maybe they age well..

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 24, 2010
Pours a deep copper amber with a spotty-lacing off-white head. Has a sweet toasty caramel malty nose with some light holiday spice and light fruity notes. Starts with some light toasty caramel sweetness and a touch light fruits and clove before a slightly drier and earthy finish. A pretty true to style and complex biere de garde.
