750 c&c from Monument in Concord, CA. Pours hazy, dirty gold with a foamy white head. Aroma is mildly earthy and somewhat fruity. Medium body with foamy carbonation. Flavor is mild malt with a lot of earthy muckiness. Not really sour, though the fruit and spice sort of suggest that. It’s actually rather refreshing. Damn tasty too.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle-conditioned 750ml. first shed rating of the winter. hazed gold body with a white head. both sweet smelling and more estery than the Printemps, less grassy and more fruit jelly / honey-like. the sugar suggests higher alcohol and thicker mouthfeel and it delivers the same. tropical and banana-like yeast, very Belgian-like, so I would probably say it was abbey tripel if blinded, though it seems a little more chunky, pasty and muddy like hefeweizen can be. thick finish of oily spice, sweet bread and simple syrup with banana / pear / tropical ester touches. delicate carbonation, bright flavors and light acidity / tartness play nice together, but it’s a little too sweet for my tastes.

75 cl bottle @ home. Rated on 21.02.2009
Aroma has soapy citrus, some grassy hops, herbal notes and fruits. Flavour is fruity with yeasty notes, honey, some grass and spices. Refreshing and fryuity – a positive surprise, one of the best Bière de Gardes I’ve had.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.75 l bottle. Golden color with no head. Strong notes of apple, clove and pepper in the aroma along with malt, honey, wood and orange. The same elements in the flavor along with herbal hops. Tasty, but after a while apple-clove note gets too overpowering. Very low real ale like carbonation which is not bad IMO.
