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..

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.75 l bottle. Amber color with fading head. Sweetish aroma with toffee, dark caramel, berries, vanilla, lemon, some tartness, some fruitiness and some musty notes of cellar. Sweetish caramelly, toffeish, musty and slightly metallic flavor with raisins and figs. A bit too sweet and full bodied, the biere de garde aromas and flavors are masked. Although mustiness is typical for biere de gardes, here the musty character is kind of dull.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled, 0.75l. Clear amber - hazy with yeast - with a small, partly lasting head. Very mild aroma of caramely malt, berries, nuts, cinnamon, and some other spices. Caramely-malty flavor with yeast and lots of Belgian-style fruitiness. Spices are present, but not as dominant as in the aroma. Medium body with quite a lot of carbonation for this brewery. Something between Leffe and Jacobsen Golden Naked, which equals roughly something ok, but nothing very interesting.
