COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This French-style country ale is deep amber in color. With a toasty, sweet caramel start, it finishes with just enough hops to clean off the palate. Bon Appetit!

Thanks to jsquire for this brew. Pours A cloudy amber to brown with a small white head that mostly dissipates. Aroma is malty and hoppy with a hint of vanilla spice and yeast. Initial flavor is malt and yeast with a spicy and fizzy hop finish. Medium-bodied palate and burpy.

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2006 This has been sitting in my refridgerator for a while. Poured a very dark amber with a huge slightly yellowish head. The aroma is caramel, corn and toffee. Notes of apples as well. The taste is surprisingly dry. Caramel and toasted nuts are in here. There are some interesting grassy hay notes and a little bit of lemon in the finish. Soft in the mouth, yet complex. Very well made.

Gold haziness topped with a huge meringue head. Aromas of earthy spiciness lots of esters almost perfumey. Nice full mouthfeel from excess carbonation, bready flavors with a slight lactic twinge finishes dry. It’s a Feb 04 bottle this is going to get funkier with age. Good Stuff

Brown with a huge overflowing head. Malty with an earthy sweetness and some bitterness to the finish. There are parts of it that I like, but overall I am not thrilled with it. Perhaps it is the style or a bad bottle, but I would not go for another.

Amber and hazy, with a high degree of chunky sediment. Lemon-grassy aroma. This strikes me as watery at first, with a caramel sting and an even waterier finish. Missed the mark.

Had it on tap at the blind pig in champaign illinois. Not bad. Not great. I just dont like the style so its not exactally fair how I feel about this one. It was kind of funky, lager funk. Funk just doesnt do it for me.

Lubiere (10165) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2006 Hazy brown copper ale with a strong diacetyl nose. Sweet honey malt and light spices. Nice bodied, but not very French! (July 31 at Indiana Microbrewers Festival)

Hazy orange ale with a thin off white head. Light orange peels and oxidized malt in aroma. In mouth, a lightly spiced sweet malt, with notes of honey, again very unlike a Garde (Sept 7 2006, Bottle)

Funky beer with some fungal notes in the nose and taste. Also quite fruity. NOt bad, though nothing spectacular.

The label calls this a "French ale", but I correctly pegged it as a bier de garde. Pours turbid orangeish with a behemoth off-white head and numerous floaties. Aroma of malt, hopcit, barnyard, apricots, and female taint. Tastes malty, with a lot of citrus and hops, backed up my the typical bier de garde horse blanket element. Not as complex as I crave, but very nice. Two Brothers continues to impress me.
