Ungstrup (29208) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 27, 2005
A hazy orange beer with a thin orange head. The aroma is sweet and very fruity - especially peaches coming thru - as well as very yeasty. The flavor is sweet with notes of wood, yeast, and caramel, but the body is thin. Definately one of the better Biere de Garde I’ve had.

(Bottle 75 cl) Very unclear orangey golden with a creamy, off-white head. Slightly sourish with some perfumy aromas. Dry with some citric notes balanced by some sweet cookie touches. Quite soft and pleasant. 120805

omhper (19308) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 25, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 12, 2005 Bottled at RBESG. Hazy deep golden. Buttery malt aroma. The geuine Flanders soft, dense, butterymalt character is definitely there, but lacks the lively champagnelike mouthfeel of the top examples. Instead this has more orangey hoppiness.

Oakes (12352) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 18, 2003
Hazy orange-amber. Earthy, woodsy, musty aroma. Yeasty, sourish. Notes of caramel malt, peaches, pears. Refined, not 100% to style, but few really good BdeG's are.

bu11zeye (11940) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - SEP 11, 2007
(750ml bottle) Pours a burnt orange body with a thick frothy long-lasting off-white head. Aroma of mustiness, citrus, wild raspberries, burnt caramel, open meadow, and a hint of cocoa as it warms to room temperature. Flavor of spicy yeast, toasted malt, caramel, herbs, and earthiness.

(Noogfest2) Off-white head atop murky amber body. Aroma is moderately sweet, caramel/butterscotch, brown sugar, floral. Taste is moderately sweet, caramel, herbal, some butterscotch, light sour cherry, Belgian yeast, oak. Smooth medium body. Aroma seems off for style, but overall this is quite enjoyable.

[thank you, Storm]
Pours a lightly hazy copper with a frothy and bubbly off white head. Aroma is sweet, lightly spicy with some caramel. A little thin mouthfeel. Flavour is equally a little dull with pretty sweet caramel notes.
