3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
My Bottom Line:
This amenable Bière de Garde proposes honeyed biscuits and herbal, peppery hops in a refreshing show of balance and quaffability.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the clear dark golden.
-The body is quite round for its size, but it’s never too sweet, which is appreciated.
-The finish is rather subtle; I would have preferred a slightly firmer hop grip.
-This is very easy to drink and it is quite hard to say it’s near 7% abv.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slight gushing to huge, very dense white head, over chromate yellow beer, lively carbonated. Grassy, herbal at first, CO² and malt-determined nose, pretty fresh-smelling. In the taste however, oxydized malts and cookies, as "Petit Beurre" dominate, the hops being conspiciously absent. Flavourprofile gets a bit earthy, after a while. MF is also very influenced by the heavy carbonation; quite slick. Average at best. Thanks to fonefan!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Carrefour, Citi Europe, Calais, France consumed 15.01.11 Pours gold with reasonable clarity and a with a white head. Big on maltiness, fruity but a fairly non-descript beer otherwise, I’ve had this whole bottle to myself (750 ml) and whilst it was absolutely fine it was also totally unremarkable to the point that I took precious few details down.
