Poured with a nice solid head over cloudy yellow. Musty honey aroma. Very banana-spiced flavor, with a hint of peppery spice. Crazy stuff. Patrickctenchi (6561) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUN 9, 2013
Clear, brassy gold with a whipped, off-white head.
Aroma is malt, grain, a little buttery.
Taste is deeply sweet, malt....caramel, sugar.
Not bad, a little clingy sweet. Pailhead (6539) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - MAR 21, 2005
Bottle: Light sweet Euro-lager aroma. Pours a cloudy orangish-yellow with a small white head. Lightly sweet with an even lighter finish. Euro-lager flavor in the background. Not a fan of the style. egajdzis (6502) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 24, 2003
Poured a cloudy golden color with a small creamy, fizzly head with no lacing. It had a sweet apple, light fruit aroma, there was also some carbonation in the aroma. Had a somewhat old taste, slight carbonation, mild apple, spice dry finish. RobertDale (6397) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - AUG 10, 2010

Poirs yellow with a huge, fizzy, white head. Smells od hay, straw, and lemon with ins of grape, apple, pear and maple syrup. reebtogi (6246) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 16, 2012
750ml corked bottle pours blonde in color with a huge white head that retains well and leaves some thin lacing on the glass. Aroma is light malts with some fruits, yeast and light hops. Taste is fruity with a light malt sweetness and mild hop bitterness with some yeast. Very spritzy carbonation and modest body provides and nice sensation on the palate. A very appealing brew that is highly recommended. JPDIPSO (6216) - Wauwatosa, USA - JUL 26, 2003
Lightly cloudy golden color with a moderate fluffy white head. Barnyard and alcohol aroma. Flavors of light apples, mild sweet malt and farm yeast. Mild acidic finish. Mild and uneventful. Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 3, 2003
Pale yellow body(blond) fills the snifter, almost clear with a deceptive short-lasting head. Obviously bottle-conditioned, coarse sediments are everywhere in suspension from the beginning of the pour, it's almost ridiculous. Aroma is pleasant straw (I wouldn't combine those 2 words usually, but this seemed like a good fit with the ensemble), light field hops. The sniff would gain a lot from being more intense. Fruity Biere de Garde: peaches and apples endow the tongue together with caramelic malts and subtle flowery hops. The finish is sweet like a pears pie. Body is medium and creamy. Nicely done beer, certainly not world-class, but like any Biere de Garde, this has a definite cachet to me, besides being effortlessly drinkable. thedm (6148) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 23, 2003
The salesman at our local Cap n'Cork liquor store did not want to sell me this bottle. He kept on saying that it was bad, but could offer no explanation as to why he felt it was bad. I bought it anyway after a long discussion with him in which he finally decided that I knew more about beer than he did. The cork came out with a loud pop! This bottled brew poured an extremely large head of foamy finely sized white colored long lasting bubbles with some yeast floating on them. The receeding head left behind a transparent yellow colored body with a lot of yeasty floating in it and a poor lacing. It had a very mild aroma with floral notes and a mouthfeel that was thick and malty yet smooth from start to finish. The flavor contains notes of thick malt, sweet malt, mild coriander and straw. The alcohol content is well hidden yet can be felt after a few drinks. There is definately nothing wrong with this bottle. It is definately not bad. I think the beer salesman saw the floating yeast and assumed that it was bad because there was stuff floating in it. Guess I did know more than he did.
