Somies amb una olor amb un gust, un aroma que et porti a records que tenies amagats a l’inconcient, un sabor cítric, vi jove, sidrà i l’acidesa de la lima, aquella dolçor de la fruita. Impressionat. Top five de les birres. Busqueu-la.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Hazy red pour with no head, completely flat pouring. Aroma is earthy, birch bark, cherries, faint acetic notes, light citrus. Flavor is unfortunately a tad gastric, woof. Good cherry notes, malty, booze and caramel complete the flavors. Palate is a bit hot, dead flat, definitely on the winey side of things but just generally lacks a bit of enjoyability.

On tap at Beachwood. P: Dark amber? Brown red? Something like that. Pretty hazy beer with a thin white head, although I heard that the head from the bottle is huge. S: Very complex stuff going on here, dried raisins, cherries, rotting wood, figs, dark caramel, plums and some nuts. The smell is just all over. T: Found a lot of sweet malt in here, some cherries, a nice fruity presences mainly pears, wood and leather. M: Thin with light carbonation. O: I havent had many Biere de Garde but this was nice and will possibly be seeking a bottle. Also I had no idea this was 11 percent and I would of never guessed.
