OlivierMTL (711) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 27, 2005
Couleur ambrée aux reflets orangés. Peu de dégagement gazeux lors du service, mousse blanche moyennement abondante Nez de grains au repos dans l’étable et de cask de bois. Flaveurs de faible malt légèrement torréfié, de levure, de pain et d’épices suggérant le cumin. Corps d’épaisseur semi mince, on ne ressent davantage la présence du grain dans les arômes que dans la texture. Peut-être un peu unidirectionnelle mais sûrement bien représentative des bières de garde. Carbonatation douce et restant en arrière-plan. Bouteille partagée avec Joce et Léo, 24 Juin 2005.

Dommod2011 (704) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2013
Farmhouse. Darker than I expected and more malty but then I knew nothing about biere de garde. Very dry with little body. Ok, nothing more, nothing less.

Bottle 0,33 l, Piwnica, Wrocław, Poland. Rubinowe, mętnawe piwo o grubej, szybko opadającej pianie i słodowym, owocowym aromacie. W smaku również słodowe, chlebowe z lekką, zbożową goryczką na finiszu.

mdi (573) - Nebraska, USA - FEB 12, 2006
75cl bottle. brown colored beer, very bubbly, pours with a massive tan head that hangs around. Spicy, earthy aroma, a bit phenolic. Velvety body. Quite malty. Moderate bitterness. At first, it seems to be a pretty simple BdG...malty is its most apparent character...but the spiciness from the yeast(& hops??) really adds another dimension to this beer. Very well done.

Not really a "Taste".... no hops, just water with lager syrup... I was dissapointed about this "fade" beer...
