Nice robust flavor on this brew. Hazy, golden color with oily beige head. Heavy malt aroma, and taste is sharp and biting, with nice crisp finish. A gem!

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden beer with medium white head. Aroma is pleasant: complicated, slightly sour, citrus and some grass and pine needles are found. Flavour is quite similar than aroma, anyway flavour is quite dry and some spicyness and slightly musty in the end. Quite easy to drink but still even slightly oily meaning that nice beer to drink. Page 24 Blonde Réserve Hildegarde is refreshing beer with complicated aroma and flavour; interesting summer-beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2012 75cl bouteille from Cellier des Arcades, Arras. Pours a hazy gold with a large white head. Aroma has a lot of rich pale malts and not much else. Flavour has a good deep malt body, with grassy hops in the finish and lingering dry yeast characters. Feels light but the booze can hit a man hard at the end of a long day of travelling. Worth checking out but not the best Biere de Garde I’ve had on this trip.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl bottle. Pours a hale golden orange, with a good-sized, clean, white head. Aroma is orange, grapes, slightly vinous, fermented fruit, peach. Taste is semi-dry. Quite spicy, fermented fruit, some peach, quite a bit of spicy and flowery hoppiness. Fairly light with decent carbonation. Good, reliable, stable, if not very remarkable.
