RATINGS: 33   MEAN: 2.94/5.0   WEIGHTED AVG: 2.94   EST. CALORIES: 168   ABV: 5.6%
Moderately strong beer, amber, marked in the malt and assertive bitterness. Fruity aroma, smooth and full bodied in the race. This beer style is a recreation of the craft produced only in French cereal areas, near the Belgian border.

Sampled @ Tilburg Bierfestival. Hazy rusty orange color, average sized off-white to beige head. Smell and taste malts, leaves, raisins, some iron. Average body and carbonation. Meh.

77ships (5411) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUN 30, 2015
Sampled 330 ml. bottle @ Tilburgs Bierfestival 2015. Hazy amber, creamy white head. Nose is odd & very yeasty, way too much mold yeast in a BE fashion obscuring everything else. Taste is milky yeast dominating everything, stone fruit, bad yoghurt,… Pure yeast body,… Nope, this isn’t it. (Thanks for sharing!)

Amber to copper in colour. Some grass in the aroma. Hint of caramel in the background. Tastes a bit like an artificially sweet, malty lager.

Reconqvista (339) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 3, 2015
Light orange color beer with a frothy and fizzy beige head that goes away quickly. Aroma is yeast and wheat with leader notes. Flavor is predominantly bitter with some light sweetness. Body is thick and carbonation is high but balanced, mostly noted at the very long end.

Pistacho (47) - SPAIN - MAY 3, 2015
On tap at Mercearia das Flores. Dried raisins aroma. Medium body, soft taste. Sweet, caramel flavor with toffee and raisins hints. End bitterness balances sweetness, perhaps some grassy notes in the aftertaste. Nice.

cervmagpt (419) - PORTUGAL - JAN 7, 2015
Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 16D). Bottle 33 cl - batch 07-14. AROMA: sweet malty aroma with solvent and band aid like aromas. some esters and cereal hull are present. no hop aromas. APPEARANCE: amber color and hazy. thin ivory head with poor retention. TASTE: mild malt sweetness with a caramel component. low bitterness with a semi-sweet finish. some solvent flavour is present. PALATE: thin body with low carbonation. OVERALL: a poor amber biere de garde that lacks malt complexity.
