Bottle. Thin white head that dissipates quickly. Ruby colored. Unique taste due to what I assume is the yeast strain.

Julie has a odd look while sampling. Ultimately she didn't like Julie gives a 2.0. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

vikingguy (816) - Chaska, Minnesota, USA - DEC 29, 2012
Pours a clear amber with white head. Fragrant fruity aroma, mainly sour cherry. Taste - malty & spicy. Cinnamon, nutmeg, cherry & vanilla. On the thin side. Tastes like Christmas.

Ericular (665) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 24, 2012
Pours clear brown with short-lived head and no lacing. Aroma is yeast, apple, cinnamon, and other holiday spices. I’m currently not a huge fan of yeasty beers like this, but this one is well done. The taste is yeasty, with a good balance of spices and hops. The first yeast beer I’ve had no problem getting through quickly. Palate is average with low carbonation. Great for the season, though, with just enough holiday feel and warming qualities.

bluemooner (631) - East Bethel, Minnesota, USA - NOV 13, 2012
Pours a ruby amber with a medium tan head. Aroma is sweet malt and fruits. Flavor is sweet caramal malt, plums, prunes, apples, yeast, and spices. Medium body with medium carbonation. Pretty decent seasonal.

gopherfan99 (510) - CROATIA - MAR 19, 2014
Bottle, pour amber with small head. Tastes of caramel and spice. Probably the best beer in this series that I have tasted.

Clear Red/Color. The flavor is reminiscent of a Hefeweizen (Cloves, Bananas) but a bit sweeter and spicier flavor, along with Caramel, Malts and Hops. I haven’t had good experiences with the Biere de Garde style in the past, but this was quite good; Good enough to where I will be seeking it out again in the future.

jebert (500) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 18, 2013
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.

jmcgavin12 (490) - Madison, USA - JAN 21, 2013
Pours amber with a medium sized head. Aroma is quite christmasy with hints of yeast, malts, a bit of banana and a whole lot of Christmas spice. The taste follows nicely with very sweet tones that are complimented by spice on the finish. Overall a great beer for a blistery day of football

Bottle, pours a clear, copper-colored body with a thick white head. Aroma of malts, caramel, yeast, and spice. Taste is similar. Light carbonation with a sticky mouthfeel.
