Draft at MacGregor’s. Light orange, creamy looking head. Nice carbonated mouthfeel. Interesting spicy aroma. More of the same in the palate. The alcohol is a bit present in the palate but masked well. I’d like to try this again. This was very good. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 22, 2009

Draft at Dilly Deli in snifter.
Poured a hazy copper color with an average white frothy head that lasted and produced good lacing. Moderate yeasty and sweet malty aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium yeasty sweet flavor with a smooth citrus sweet finish of average duration.
Soft drinkable brew. crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - MAR 9, 2009
on tap at the gingerman. light copper body with a fast fading white head. Seemed a little on the sweet side for my liking. Caramel-like malts seemed to hide any wheat or earthy notes i like wth this style. carbonation was modrate. blklab2007 (2120) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 8, 2009
on tap at the gingerman poured a bright amber and has a nice one finger off white head. aroma has some grains, sweetness, hop spice, and fruit. mouth feel is medium and carbonation low. flavor has a nice complementing malted body and candy sugar thing. hops contribute spices and bitterness and there is a little pollen and pitted fruits. the style I have come to like, and this one has lots of interest stops along the drinking journey.

Typical wheat with a touch of alcohol on the aroma, but with an additional aroma of candied fruit and lemon. Very translucent amber-copper color. Mouth feel is a little harsh and bubbly on the tongue, and a tad thin/watery. Overall, a very delicious beer, with quite a kick. Great to drink.

A pretty amber colored beer served in one of those Brooklyn that I’m so fond of. Thin ring of white head. There’s a light apple chrispness in the aroma and maybe a bit of honey. Fruity and slightly tart flavor at the start with a lasting honey finish. Pretty good. glennmastrange (2881) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - FEB 21, 2009
Tap. Moderate malt aromas of light bread, cereal, toasted and caramel, light perfume and dough for the hops and yeast, with notes of red wine, honey and a fruity hint in the background. Head is creamy, white with good lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is hazy orange/brown. Flavor is moderately sweet and lightly acidic to start, and is moderately sweet and lightly bitter in the finish. Palate is medium, oily and has a soft carbonation. It finishes lightly alcoholic. Well balanced, this Biere de Garde has all the necessary elements to call it an exceptional beer. thejon375 (414) - Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 13, 2009
Burnt amber in appearance and roasty nutmeg on the aroma. Great spicy flavor and smooth finish. Well balanced beer. ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - FEB 3, 2009
Orange pour with fluffy head. Vegetal aroma. Corn, floral notes, and sweet malts. Im having a hard time believing this is a biere de garde
