2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle received via trade with Glouglouburp. Pours clear and sparkling orange with an average, frothy, white head, lasting with fair lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (hay, straw, meal), average hops (herbs, grass), average yeast (horse blanket, earth) with notes of light alcohol and cask. Medium bodied, sticky texture, lively carbonation, and a metallic finish. Average duration, light sweetness, acidity, and bitterness. Rather bland beer; very effervescent.

I had this beer many years ago at one time when I was only giving ratings to the beers but was too lazy and stupid to write down my thoughts. I will update this as soon as I get my hands on this beer again.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ home. Slightly hazy red-orange appearance with a pretty big orangish white head. Sweet, yeasty, and slightly wild Belgian ale aroma. Slightly yeasty, golden, yeasty Belgian ale flavor. A bit of sourness and some yeast on the Belgian ale finish.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A real farmhouse. Horseblanket aroma with beige head. Tasty and drinkable biere de garde. Grassy, grainy, sweet start and bitter but balanced finish. Understated carbonation. Not the best but still a good example of the style, and a superior French effort.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
750ml bottle, vintage 2013, 8 % abv, from Systembolaget, Luleå, via Gaute. Champagne cork that gave a good shot followed by smoke when opened. Close to clear golden body. Dense, white head blanketing the glass. Sweet fruit and malts on the nose added by vapour of alcohol. Sweet wheat, honey, and sweet, fruity caramel to the taste buds. Soft and sweet fruity ending. Notable alcohol. Rather easy to drink. Far from great, gives a bland impression (session in Tromsø, 30.07.2013).

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
2009 bottle. Very highly carbonated, golden beer. A massive, thick, sticky white head. The aroma is really great. Big slightly musty, spicy nose. Fairly herbal with a light zestiness and a touch of black pepper. Softly sweet, but generally well-balanced. It’s a simple, but tasty biere de garde.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
750mL bottle, pours a clear golden / copper with a small white head. Aroma of corn, wheat, other artificial sweet flavours and hay. Flavour is sort of a mix between corn syrup and a yeasty wheat beer, starting with the former and finishing with the latter. The aftertaste is quite nice, but the initial adjunct-like flavours aren’t pleasing at all. Decent at best.

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2013 Stinging honey leaking out of a young oak tree…Graham crackers within frothy carbonation...Active yet shy hop leafiness, warming alcohol but not overdoing it, a few tasty yeast flakes and some cereal at the base of the trunk…Solemn and pleasantly quiet…
