Bottle, pour amber with small head. Tastes of caramel and spice. Probably the best beer in this series that I have tasted.

Here it goes had this 2 months apart and in those 2 months it was almost a totally different beer strange... December it was awesome sweet sour almost like a jolly rancher one of the best and strangest beers i ever had. Wild... 2 months later had another and it had mellowed quite a bit still good but darker in color and a lot of the original flavors were gone leaving a kind of dark winter ale in its place nice job Schells!!!

Pours a nice looking amber with a medium sized tan head. Nose is spices with a whiff of hops. Fairly creamy on the palate, the taste is malty with some caramel and ginger notes. Slight hop flavor on the finish, still rather sweet though. A good winter warmer.

bhensonb (10345) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 24, 2013
Bottle from Andy (Guerde). Pours dark copper amber. Not much head. Aroma is a bit spicy. Med body. Flavor is fruity, spicy, a little earthy. It’s med fruit, not dark. It drinks very nicely, has good overall impact. Might consider there to be some toffee characteristic. Finishes pretty balanced. Good beer. Just leaves me uncertain about flavor components. Which is ok.

nuplastikk (4126) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 26, 2013
12oz bottle. A pretty cool, under the radar beer. Amber-tan body, filtered. Not much head, fades into some oily traces. Sweet, faint spearmint and other spices in the aroma. It certainly isn’t the best example of the style, it still has a sort of budget feel to it, but it does almost manage to actually capture the essence of Biere de Garde....OK maybe not. Tolerable.

fidelis83 (1823) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - FEB 13, 2013
Nearly clear, copper to amber pour with a small, blotchy beige head. Aroma of intense raw yeast, caramel, tree fruit, banana, hints of toast, caramel and rubber. Flavor is just as intensely yeasty, lots of bread and plain old bottom of the fermenter sludge, banana, cloves, anise, light caramel and dried grassy plants. Medium body, with an oily feel throughout and a little chalkiness to the finish, and light, but sharp carbonation. Im not a fan, it’s all yeast and spice. Reminds me of what I remember of Celis Grand Cru. I haven’t had that in several years, but I think I liked it better.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Clear copper with a large taupe crown that fades slowly away. Aroma of moderate funk with banana, caramel, spices, mild fruit and some bready malt. Taste is yeasty with banana, spices, bready malt, mild tomato and a spicy and somewhat funky finish. Nice change of pace.
