3.2
AustinMilbarge (681) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 9, 2003
Whispy, white head. Tight packed bubbles. Moderate amount of carbonation, Kind of a yeasty/lager aroma, different. Sweet and flat tasting. Nothing special or complex.

4.2
jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - JAN 23, 2008
Pours hazy gold with a large white head. Lots of tiny floaties. Very herbal aroma with a light peach background. Sugary sweetness comes out with some swirling. Delicate flavor; there’s a lot going on, but it takes several sips to realize that. Herbal hoppiness rounds out the peach, banana, earth, and light clove taste. Earthiness becomes more apparent as the beer warms and blends very well with the hops. Chewy mouthfeel, even through all the carbonation. This one doesn’t tell you it’s a great beer; it lets you figure it out on your own.

pintocb (654) - Hoon, Georgia, USA - JAN 13, 2007
Clearish yellow. Not much head. Smells like a typical lager. Almost skunky. Some fruit in the taste. Clean finish.

3.5
slang (654) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - FEB 19, 2006
750 ml. Lite looking beer w/ a lot of flavor. Strong presence of alcohol here? Moderate hop bitterness and grass flavor that carries over from the nose. Good stuff. It’s common here in Columbia.

3.1
nhorween (645) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 13, 2006
Decent aroma, very subtle smells. Mine poured with a big cloudy white head that dissapated quickly - pale straw color. Great mouthfeel and very smooth. I wouldn’t drink it everyday, but its worth having once.

3.2
DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 14, 2003
Hazy golden orange color, minimal white head. Promising aroma of grass, yeast, vegetable, pear, wiff of hops. Flavor is a bit weak, unbalanced sugary sweet with bitterness, cracker, malt. Thin body. Quick mostly dry finish. Not too exciting or complex, or subtle either. Drinkable though.

3.3
Yankovitch333 (612) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 13, 2004
Poured a nice golden amber with a thick white head. Fruit and citrus on the nose. Light bodied. Banana, citrus fruits, and yeast on the tongue, along with a mild hint of hops. Dry hop finish. Not the best in its style, but it was still a refreshing beer.

3.5
DownsouthGav (601) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2008
Cream, treacle, barley, malt, spice. Pours a golden amber coloured beer with visible carbonation and large white head. Soft, light mouthfeel. treacle, malty, hoppy. hops are quite strong, an enduring palette. Quite nice.

3.3
rayg1 (594) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - NOV 26, 2010
Pours a deep golden yellow with a very thin white head that fades quickly. Aroma is spicy, slightly sweet, and grassy hoppy. Taste is quite sweet, a bit spicy, and finishes with a mild grassy bitterness, along with a bit of astringency. Body is light, fairly carbonated. Not bad, but it’s missing the complexity I’d like in a biere de garde.

3.2
mdi (573) - Nebraska, USA - AUG 3, 2003
App: light gold,no head(although I didn't get to pour it myself, even swirling the glass didn't produce much foam) Aro:Floral, musty, carmelized malt Palate:nice and easy Flavor:malt with spicy yeast notes...didn't notice much alcohol. Overall:it comes together nicely, sweet, spicy, floral, malty. But as others have said "good but not great"
