3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
hazy gold to peach pour with a 1 finger, creamy off white head. Aroma is toast, cereal, light and tart Belgian fruity esters and a little citrus. Flavor is grainy pale malt, a little toast, doughy yeast, light spice, light tree and stone fruit and some earthy, planty hops tot the finish. Medium body with a light to medium, blanketing and somewhat sharp carbonation, oily entry and oily, but somewhat dry and lightly chalky finish. Good stuff overall, simple but satisfying.

Bottle at San Juan.
Clear copper color, small off-white head. Caramel and grainy&grassy notes in the nose. Medium-bodied. Flavor is alcoholic, bready maltyness with herbal and grassy hops. Not maybe authentique but somewhere there. French ones are not better.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Curious beer, much maltier than I’ve come to expect in the style. Slightly mash-smelling, cereal, a bit of orange and maybe some brown pears. Interesting beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour otu of 12 oz bottle, hazy orange-yellow pour with white lacing head, aroma brought orange, vanilla, touch of butter, some peach notes into a bit of honey, some crackery notes. Taste is a mix of orange, pear, some bread, hints of biscuit into a bit of spice, touch of grass, finishing sweet. Pretty tasty.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle
Pours clear amber with plenty of visible carbonation and a durable off-white head.
Aroma: more like a pilsner than expected, with earthy hops showing.
Flavor: certainly better than the aroma suggests. Moderate complexity. Mild bitterness in the finish and aftertaste. Bready malts with faint fruity and spicy notes.
Feel: excellent creamy but lively feel with medium+ body.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle. Amber pour some frothy head. Aroma of tangy fruity dead Belgian yeast big malts. Tastes like a doppelbock with some Belgian yeast. bready. Sticky palate. Some skunky german-type hops coming through. probably was good in 750ml. This mass produced 6pack is garbage.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light amber, hazy, thin (1mm film) eggshell head with lively bubbles. Aroma is of hay, grass field, hint of old dry cheese (Parmesan?). Bit of soap. Body is medium, and syrupy, especially due to diffuse, prickly carbonation not pulling its weight. Flavor is dried/baked raw grain (wheat/oat), sharp grasses, again, bit of soap, touch of nectar sweetness. 12oz actually seems like a lot; not something I’m tempted to toss down. OK.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours an orangish color with white head. Malty, cereal oats, slight fruity aromas. Very fruit forward flavor that I wasn’t expecting. Fruity, jolly rancher, oats flavors. I was really excited about this beer, because not a lot of breweries make biere de garde style. I wasn’t expecting the strong fruity flavor, which seemed off.
