Clear amber, minimal head. Caramel malt, wet grains, slim black pepper, mild herb. Slightly mealy body, chewy.
Cloudy brown. It’s just the flavor I was looking for on a warm Texas late October afternoon. Malty oat aroma. Medicinal flavor. Cajun (534) - Lafayette, Louisiana, USA - AUG 12, 2016
Bottle - Pours deep amber/orange tint, soapy white head. Nose of biscuit, caramel, earthy...and spice. Dough-like sip, hints of fruit and spice, malty. Hops in finish. BelgianBeerGal (4068) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JAN 23, 2016
Bottle grabbed in NOLA mostly because it was a bier de garde tick; my 10th! Pours a clear copper color with active carbonation and a foamy, khaki head. Nice aroma of sweet malt and earthy yeast. Slightly bitter flavor with some toffee in the background. Fairly traditional biere de garde palate but I am far from an expert. 3fourths (9347) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 18, 2016
Bottle. Filtered amber orange with a tall white head. Aroma impression is brown malt, honey, fall leaves, toasted grain, toffee, browned apple and banana; aroma hops are quietly floral with a generic fruit candy character. Minerally, light metal and vulcanized rubber off-effects. Medium+ bodied, low carbonation, low acidity, medium+ sweetness is flabby and syrupy in the mouth.

Pours deep golden with low white head. No lacing. Aroma is of malt, grain. Taste is of malt, sugar, bitterness. Palate: Medium body. Medium carbonation. Overall: OK, a bit bland. Lots of malt features. Weirdly english-tasting.

Poured copper with a slight haze, frothy light beige head. Grassy, slightly floral aroma. Taste...underwhelming after a promising start. Not bad, but the maltiness came through a tad early and prominently, roasted caramel, decent hop finish with some mild spice. Better as it warmed.

I don’t know what is up with this beer. I trade a lot for Bier De Garde, like south Hampton. This doesn’t fit into the bjcp category at all and over all its kind of funky. TXBadger (2811) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 12, 2015
Pours an orange golden color with off-white head. Biscuit, bread, cereal and some grass on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a yeasty note. rougeau13 (3039) - Richmond, Texas, USA - JUN 7, 2015
Dark hazy orange-caramel-amber color with a bubbly eggshell head. Aroma of caramel, fresh bread, and a little sweet fruit. Taste is bready and yeasty, a little sweet and a little bitter. Medium bodied and slightly dry. dfinney23 (3325) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 16, 2015
Wow, I hope this is just a bad bottle. Clear amber with a thin yellowish head. Aroma is mostly just musty. Taste is inoffensive but lost behind the aroma.
