3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This was poured into a tulip.
The appearance was a subtle hazy burnt orange color with a thin white foamy head that quickly dissipated. Light lingering lacing runs around the glass nicely.
The smell starts off with some sweet honeysuckle, light floral (heather), subtle grassy sweetness. Slight sweet cherries. Light toast (with that good "butter" to it, not diacetyl)
The flavor brings everything together to produce a nice sticky sweetness running into the aftertaste with all previously mentioned flavors.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium in body with a nice semi-sessionability about it. Carbonation runs fairly light. Decent for what it is.
Overall, good biere de garde. Pretty sure I could have again.
