2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Color is standard: clear and golden. Very light and crisp; flavor fades fast. Seems like a good "sippable" beer or for the non-beer drinker.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pretty weird tasting brew. Smells kind of like a stout. The taste is funky. Like apples, stout, and wine mixed together.

Pours golden amber with ring of film. Big musty, woody, farmhouse aroma. Which is usually good just something is off here. Flavor very euro-lager/skunk. Just doesn’t cut it for me.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep copper with thick white lace - flowery, biscuity aroma, with background hops and grain - quite grassy and herbal, but with enough, buttery, bready malt to balance it out - floral and tea-like in the finish - quite crisp and refreshing - subtle but complex - one of the best Two Brothers I’ve had.

Copper hued body with a white head. Fresh grainy malt character with some sprucy hop presence that melds together well. Nice medium tartness and moderate residual sweetness. Good, interesting biere de garde.

Bottle: Courtesy of Styles. Spicey, light hops, and a touch of Euro-lager aromas. Pours a transparent amber with a small white head. Lightly fruity with some extremely light yeastiness. Lots of spice in the finish (clove) with a touch of hops.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2005 It reminds me of a dubbel, in a way. In the way it is spicy but sweet and malty and not overly hopped and in the way it is slightly sour like some dubbels smell in the end of the glass. I have just come in from pitching the hey and it is a crisp autumn day and I must say to my French housewife Leave me alone to my beer and later we will make love but for now there is only a bierde de garde.
