3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Terre de Boissons Calais and drunk at home. Gold amber bit of a haze lasting white head. Some light white pepper hop aroma, some citrus, some caramel. Quite light in the mouth, touch of caramel, then some decent white pepper hops. It’s an ok Biere de Garde, Fresh as I got it in March for a Spring beer. I rather liked the light but there hops.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden and small stable head. Light sweet of peaches and yellow apple, light malts, fine yeast in the background. Not too exciting, I expected more. Could use lower carbonation and more hop. Especially more hop. It’s spring after all. (Stylish 75cl flip top bottle from Saveur Bière)

Bottle. Poured a hazy copper color with an average white frothy head that lasted and produced good lacing. Moderate yeast and sweet citrus aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium yeast sweet flavor with a smooth citrus sweet finish of average duration. Soft drinkable brew.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750ml swing top bottle shared by a local rater. Mostly hazy golden orange color. Thin slightly off-white head. Just some loose bits of lace. Good orange citrusy hoppy aroma, doughy bread malt in the nose. More malty and peppery in the flavor, with a moderate sweet taste. Medium-plus body, with a smooth, soft lighter carbonation, lightly dry finish. OK bier de garde, not very interesting overall. Smells more promising than it tastes, but still a decent above-average hop for the style.

Thanks Chuck! Hazy amber pour with a bubbly white head that fades quickly. Sweet candy like aromas, honey, candied lemon, and hints of yeast. Flavor is similar and kind of flat with a sweet finish. Not terrible, but nothing too complex.

(4.0)
2015 Batch 385 bottle. Mostly clear pale amber with a lasting white head. Aroma is malty and yeasty, smells of apple butter and honey and pastries and saccharine and dandelion and herbs and flowers and toasted grain. Medium bodied, slick and oily sweet toffee / butterscotch with a vegetable greenness. The texture is strangely gelatinous and gllycerol-like (glycerolic?). Sweet and boring. 3.3
