2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Big thanks to SFLpunk for sending this bottle my way. Served in a Captain Lawrence tulip. At the time of consumption, the #3 Biere de Garde. Reviewed from my tasting sheet.
Pours a clear golden color with an average, fizzy white head and some spotty lacing. Thin cap throughout. The nose is light and smells mostly like pilsener malt. Light cardboard and bread. Very grainy. The flavor is quite grainy as well. Light body and no contribution from yeast or hops. Fizzy carbonation and a dry finish. Not my cup of tea.
Serving type: bottle

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear amber of color with an off white head. An aroma of caramel, hops, metallic and toffee. A flavor of sweets, caramel, weak hops, weak bitterness, to much alcohol domination.

Thanks to Alex... Dark clear gold with an off white head... Smells like a biere de garÐe, honey, apicots, champagne, some yeast, a touch to sweet but good... The taste is very malty on the front but the finish is a touch alcoholic, so so

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Tastes like a slightly darker and less drinkable Leffe Blond. Sweet, yeasty, fruity, spicy. Nothing exciting here.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Skjold Burne. Medium head with medium duration. Color is golden. Aroma and taste are yeast, alcohol, fruits and malt. Not very balanced and way too one dimensional with alcohol. The bottle I had was 10% abv.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle (2011).
Pours a light to medium amber/orange, with a faint haze, and a firm white head.
Very spicy, malty aromas, hints of barnyard funk, hay, straw, earth, dried orange peel, wax. The hop profile is spicy rather than floral, and a nice touch of yeast comes through.
Quite dry, medium bodied, mid to high bitterness, quite lively carbonation.
The taste is dominated by a spicy hop character, and erthy, yeast notes, against a firm malt backbone. The alcohol burns through a tad too strongly, but I also think this is coherent with the style.. Also notes of funk, straw, citrus peel, wax, apples.
Long, warming, dry finish. A very rustique ale, true to style, very drinkable. (2011-06-01)
