FishManLA (337) - Abita Springs, Louisiana, USA - JUL 8, 2008
Bright gold color with a fizzy head with medium retention and nice lacing. Nose of biscuits and fruit. Fresh malt taste with obvious fruit notes and somewhat more subtle toffee notes and suggestions of honey and spice. Tart, tangy, clean, and fresh finish. A perfect beer for watching a sunset on a spring or summer evening.

mtoast (336) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 10, 2008
33cL bottle courtesy of yinzer at Pittsburgh gathering on 1/27/2008. Crystal clear golden color, stark white foam, decent retention. Nice earthy aroma, some very nice yeast spiciness. Flavor falls a little flat, somewhat malty with some of the yeastiness coming through but for the most part comes across as a bit watery. Was really looking forward to this, I think my expectations far exceeded reality.

dtborelli (322) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 17, 2011
Castelian Biere de Garde Pours medium gold with a thick white head and ok retention. Aroma is bready and doughy with nice floral notes and mild banana esters. Very nice. Flavor is full bodied and crisp with nice floral notes and a heavy sweet breadiness. Mildly hopped to balance the sweetness. Really good.

AxlLives (288) - Maryland, USA - MAY 15, 2013
Tap pour - @ RHP. Pours yellow gold, nice medium white head. Tastes of beautiful cool malts, complex yeasts, and spicy hops. Good long bodied palate and great balance. Very good.

clong83 (285) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 4, 2009
A very smooth biere de garde, A bit thin, but not off-putting. A little bready and somewhat sweet and rather refreshing. Surprisingly not yeasty for a biere de garde...

Beloved Beer (278) - California, USA - DEC 26, 2002
dirty blond color. long lasting head. yeasty aroma which reminded me of belgians. Nothing great but not at all bad.

2.3
FezMonkey (268) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 14, 2003
Nothing to write home about but still better than the mass produced beers. I would most likely not get this one again not because it was bad just that there are others I prefer.

3.5
cewldre (268) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 29, 2007
bottle: Pours a hazy gold color with a pretty sizable white head. Smell is crisp with some spice notes. Taste is sweet, maybe some raisin feel. Taste is also very crisp. Not bad.

3.4
swirl (267) - collingswood, New Jersey, USA - MAR 28, 2005
Pale straw color with a nice white head. Lots of citrus and fruits in the aroma. Nice crisp taste. Definately a beer I will drink again.

4.2
Lyncham (251) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 23, 2010
Large format bottle served in tulip glass. Grassy aromas with slight apples and peppery spice. Clear deep yellow color. Med carbonation with small bubbles. Balance fruit sweetness of apples with clove and Bready malts with grassy dry bitterness. Very refreshing.
