Biere de Garde mean "beer to keep or to store." It is a farmhouse ale from French Flanders in the northeast and was brewed in the spring and consumed throughout the summer. Medium- to full-bodied, amber in color, a bit earthy, a touch acidic, and very drinkable.

arminjewell (9260) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 22, 2015
Pour on tap at the brewery, dark yellow-orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of orange, grapefruit, orange jam into a bit of bread, biscuit, some earth into a bit of red fruit, some vanilla. Taste was a mix of vanilla, orange jam, caramel, hints of toffee and sweet sugars, slight red fruit.

On tap in Brea; amberish in color. Strange aroma that I couldn’t quite pinpoint. Sweet aroma. Fruity and earthy flavor. Solid.

joeneugs (5765) - Livermore, California, USA - APR 13, 2011
On tap at the brewery. Pours orangy/gold with a small off white head. The aroma is full with caramel and sweet fruity hard candy. The flavor is very sweet with caramel and some fruit. The body is full and slightly oily. Nice maltyness in the finish. I’m not a fan of the style, but this was one of the better ones I’ve tried. Nice effort.

On tap at the Bruery Provisions. Pours with a clear orange to gold body with a just off-white head. Aromas of orange, grainy, bready, earthy, slight hints of marmalade. Flavors are bready, grassy, grainy, caramel and a hint of diacetyl. Slightly slick on the mouthfeel. With medium bubbles and a slight bitterness in the finish.

Ungstrup (34376) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 4, 2010
Draft. A light amber beer with a thin white head. The aroma has light notes of caramel. The flavor is sweet with a solid malt base, that makes it almost chewy and notes of caramel as well as a touch of alcohol.

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2014 Tap at Stone Bistro. Pours dark copper with a creamy off-white head. Aroma is mildly funky/carbolic - but so mild it might be wishful smelling. Med. body - creamy carb. Flavor is definitely more malty than anything else. There’s a little yeast; there’s a little barnyard. But it’s primarily bready/malty. Still it washed down the duck taco and habanero salsa something proper. 8/30/2014 at the brewpub. Not gonna change the first rating.

Draft. Rich amber beer with a cream colored head. Malt and spice aroma. caramel and yeast flavor with light spice. Medium bodied. caramel and spice lingers with yeast.

pours a nice copper color. very tart and fruity initially. Belgian influence is there but mild. not intrusive. carbonation really drives the flavor but it doesn’t linger as much as I would like.
