3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Musty, lightly sweet, grainy aroma has some citrus notes and a touch of creamy corn. Very pale, lightly hazy golden colour with low but lasting white head. Light mustiness in the generally sweet, malty flavour that offers light citrus and marzipan notes. Dry and somewhat bitter in the finish. Medium-light body with low carbonation. Sampled at Mondial de la Bière 2005.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This pours quite a pale yellow for a biere de garde. The carbonation is slow & lazy and the thick, tightly beaded head lingers only briefly. The aroma is grassy and yeasty with a light fruitiness - apples and grapes - and a hit of alcohol. Quite vinuous in the mouth, it has a ligfht, sweet malt flavor with yeast and a spritz of lemon. The finish is long, warm, and dry. Nice drink.

UPDATED: MAY 24, 2007 Bottle from france. Creamy tight head and golden colour. Not fantastic nose or amazing flavours, but the whole is greater than the sum of the parts to deliver a wonderful refreshing strong golden ale. It is one of my favourite fridge beers

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(on bottle) Light sent of grass and hay; the real biere de garde-aroma. Perlyfresh, a bit stngdy, with a good alcoholfeel the palate. A tad bitter/metallic finish.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sample courtesy of Pailhead. Pours copper with fluffy white head. Aroma is very yeasty with hints of fruit. Flavor just about the same, but very astringent. Highly carbonated. Agree with Pailhead in, not a fan of the style so far.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Fruity and vinuous with some watered down kriekbier aromas in there too. Pours a hazy orange with a white head that has good retention. Light up front with light fruit, yeast, and a little acidity in the finish. Not bad, but I’m just not that big a fan of the style.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Smooth, dangerously drinkable biere de garde. Deep gold colour, huge lacing head. A "big" nose, full of apples, grassy hops and yeast. Full-bodied, sweet on entry, with a long, wonderfully dry finish. Syrupy mouthfeel. Almost wine-like in intensity, with some spice, hoppy grapefruit, and plenty of warming alcohol. (Bottle)
