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.

A: The pour is amber/copper in color with a thin ring of white foam. S: The nose is somewhat on the light side with some sweet caramel and bready malts. There’s also a nice toast bready aroma to it. T: The beer is caramelly and sweet with that usual bready malt flavor. Some light baking spices, like cinnamon, as well. Unfortunately, there’s a very noticeable alcohol presence. M: The body is on the full side with a moderate level of carbonation and a bit of warmth. D: I liked some of the flavors and aromas in the beer, but it was unfortunately, the alcohol presence ruined the experience for me.

On tap, then got a growler filled. Nice easy drinking beer. Good color of amber and deep orange. Mild banana and vanilla aroma, with a slightly sweet flavor. Certainly worth trying. I always get a growler filled of something while I’m in that area.

On tap at Taps. Color was golden amber with a white head and some lacing. Aroma of caramel apples, vanill and sugar. Very nice. flavor of yeast, apple, bubblegum with a bit of alcohol and bread. Like most of their beers, this was solid to good for the style.
