3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver, simply as Upright Bičre de Garde
Muddy deep blond color with creamy and persistent head. Light wheat aroma, light spices, very light lemony touch. Dry and smooth mouthfeel; there is some wheat and spices touch, and quite strong bitternesss.
Can’t understand why Bičre de Garde; in any case, it’s a very average beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Urban Family Public House, pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma of farmhouse esters, bready notes and smells very traditionally biere de garde like. Flavour of toasted spiced bread, farmhouse notes, and some light fruity notes. Thorough body, but light and easily drinkable. Solid stuff.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce sample at Pine Box in Seattle. Listed as Upright Biere de Garde and 7.7% ABV. The aroma on this is mild, with light fruity yeast esters present. Scant barnyard character--really faint, though. Lightly metallic and delicate. Modestly hazy honey-colored body with a medium, strong, white creamy head. Starts quite musty and minerally. Light cheesiness and some wheat character follow. More mineral flavors come through at the end, along with a little metallic flavor. Ethanol is hidden extremely well. Super drinkable!

Bottle 61/62 shared by Puddintane at Muckfest III...thanks Dave! - Pours copper with a foamy tan head. Nose is orange marmalade and light, yeasty bread. Vanilla notes. Taste is light cherries, light bread, mellow oak, a touch of yeast, and orange peel. Smooth and well-carbonated. Interesting and pretty mellow. Liked this one, but didn’t love it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared at MuckFest 3 - Friday evening addition. Not sure if this is in the database. Pours a nicer deep copper pour, gentle glow, fiery edges and deeper hued body. Frothy tannish head sits atop as a mellow ring, laces small. Aromas are a bit sticky sweet, caramel and tropical fruit, touch of grapefruit, gentle brett, oak, and touches of wine, gentle bitter tannins and richer fruit element. Touches of cheese, funk, gentle yeasty life. Initial is lighter end of medium bodied, with firm funky yeast, touch of cheese, carmelization richer tropical and sweeter fruit element. A bit carmelized, funky. Not bad.
