Pale yellow pour with a white head. Cereal aroma with light nutty notes. Very heavy cereal flavor with lots of honey. Sweet and syrupy. A bit heavy for me.

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.

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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml swing top bottle. A lightly hazy medium golden beer with an average sized, frothy, mostly diminishing white head. Interesting and very balanced aroma, moderately malty, lightly to moderately hoppy and lightly yeasty. There are notes of biscuits, bread, grass, honey, spices (mainly pepper) and lemon. The flavour is moderately sweet, lighty sour, lightly bitter. Very bready, almost chewy. Nice spicey hints, clean. Medium body, lively carbonation, long finish with medium bitterness, lightly alcoholic. Very enjoyable.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
75 cl swingtop bottle. Cloudy orange yellow, foamy white head slowly settles and lingers. Aroma is yeasty and fruity. Spritzy and bitter, odd earthy yeasty taste, semi sweet fruitiness, mild malts and spice. Lively carbonation, light-medium bodied, low hopped. This brew is kinda funked up, I’m not digging the barnyard thing. Slightly acidic and vionous towards the finish. Pass. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)
