djd07 (3879) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 2, 2012
On tap at Richmond Arms. Pours a cloudy coppet with large white head leaving sticky along the glass. The aroma is yeast and pepper. Medium mouthfeel with a raisin malt and metallic finish. Easy to drink a decent biere de garde from Southern Star.

DSG (6333) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 25, 2012
Bottle sample at a spring beers tasting at Norma Jean. Hazy amber with a beige head. Aroma of yeast, fruits, spicy herbal notes and malt. Sweetish flavor with some malt, a bit of caramel, fruits, some yeasty notes and a drier finish with some spicy notes. Medium-bodied.

kerenmk (2587) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 23, 2012
Can sample at a spring tasting courtesy of beerandbeyond. Pours dark amber, a little hazy with a white head. Smells of baked apples and buns and tastes grainy bitter and plastic-ish. There’s a hint of sweetness in the finish, lively carbonation and light body.

newcigarz (43) - Florida, USA - MAR 22, 2012
Pours a rusty color with a thin cream colored head. Smells of bread and damp basement. Taste is thin and light with some caramel notes Glad I got to try it. Not terrible, but not great either.

Beerenberger (1538) - Fischer, Texas, USA - MAR 20, 2012
It has a hazy medium amber color with a rapidly disapearing off white head. The nose is grainy and the over all taste follows suit - grains, toast with hints of caramel malt. It has a medium to light body with a smooth lightly carbonated mouthfeel. No bitterness and a long lasting pleasant grainy aftertaste. Completely satisfying. Would buy again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RollinHard (1024) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - FEB 29, 2012
Pours a hazy rusty orange with a small white head that fades to a small ring. Aroma of baked apples, grass, toffee, orange, and toast. Flavor also has that baked apple taste, but slightly less so with more earth, toast, toffee, leaves, and grass. Finishes with a bit of peppery spice, grass, and toasted pizza crust. Slight fruit aftertaste, which lingers in a funny way and makes me want to have some water. Medium to light bodied, moderate carbonation, body feels like it could have been slightly more carbonated. It’s a good beer, definitely interesting, but certainly not perfect.

seymour (1478) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - FEB 24, 2012
Tasted from 12 oz can into tulip. Thanks Dak, I never expected to drink a nice Texan Bière de Garde in a can, cool! Poured a beautiful, mostly clear, excellent off-white foam and lace. Very pleasing aromas of caramel malt, flowery hops, subdued Belgian-type yeast esters/phenols, perfumey alcohol. Rich malt sweetness, caramel, toffee, apricots. Had a unique palate: creamy and buttery, light body but sticky-sweet mouthfeel, low carbonation, with a lingering tangy aftertaste. Very well-crafted and tasty.

Drank out of a can. Dark copper/translucent amber. Strong malty aroma. This is a very good and balanced beer. Good tart flavor and quite buttery.

brokensail (11552) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 19, 2012
Pours an opaque brown color with a tall khaki colored head. Sort of watery and bland overall, but there is a mildly interesting aroma of fruit and yeast. Some bready malt is also present. Moderately sweet with a bit of toffee, bread, and caramel. Some yeast notes along with a bit of green apple. The flavor is fairly watery, too.
