Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 2, 2009
Draught, Redlight. Gorgeous red-orange and luminescent. Fun party for the nose, cherries and candi sugar. Medium carbonation is soft. Alcohol is a bit apparent. Has a nice candi sugar quality that almost becomes over the top but nice in general. Oakes (17685) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 2, 2009
Draught, Redlight Redlightadrian910ss (2575) - Doylestown, PA, USA - FEB 1, 2009
Golden-amber colour. Candy cherry - lime aroma with lots of syrupy malts. Slightly berryish and very sweet. Just thin enough to move all those sugars across the palate. I wasn’t terribly convinced but it was okay.
On draft at Rattle and Hum. Pours a semi clear coppery orange with a medium light beige head. Aroma of faint hops, light tangy citrus and honey. Taste is much the same. emacgee (4676) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JAN 31, 2009
On tap at at Tylers in Carrboro. Light hazy orange amber in the glass. The head is frothy and off white. The nose is bubblegum, candy, very fruity, estery, sweet and spicy. The flavor is spicy, estery, yeasty, sweet, fruity, bubblegum, warming alcohol. The palate is crisp with a nice carbonation. kiefdog (1826) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 31, 2009

Flavor is sweet and floral with notes of bread, grass, yeast, ripe cherries and ripe fresh fruit with some honey and caramel overtones. Generally light to medium body with a clean finish.

Enjoyed on tap at Bar Great Harry. Pour was brown/ruby. Nice lace work. A little darker than I was expecting from a Biere De Garde. Grains, alcohol, and light yeast OldGrowth (3474) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - JAN 27, 2009
@ Tylers Apex location, Good aroma, sweet, bready, honey, grassy. Orangy bronze color, good head and lace. Sweet flavor. honey whole wheat, some yeasty type spice. Medium body, kind of smooth creamy mouthfeel, bitter dry finish, Nice brew, for 8% it went down fast. BiddleBrau (1221) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 25, 2009
Hazy golden with dense white head. Alcohol is up front on the nose and taste. Once past that a yeasty, grassy, dry belgian farmhouse ale profile. I think less alcohol would bring this brew closer to style. Carbonation not so prickly on the tongue as the dense head would suggest. On tap at Dive 96. michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 23, 2009
Draught at TND: Sweet aroma of apples, grains, white grapes, yeast, sugar, and light bubblegum. Poureed amber in color with a medium-sized white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Complex flavor was slightly bitter and medium sweet. Tastes of apples, grains, slight alcohol, caramel, toasting, hops, biscuit, sourdough, and honey. Medium body. Oinly, then dry texture. Average carbonation. Biscuit, fruit, and caramel finish is dry. Slipstream (2626) - USA - JAN 20, 2009
Draft at Rattle n Hum. Some skank in the aroma, unfortunately. Flavor is sweet and malty, with touches of whiskey and grapes. Pleasantly fizzy on the palate. My first biere de garde. Interesting brew.
