Braudog (6836) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - APR 13, 2004
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 (6732) - 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.

egajdzis (6730) - 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.

Pailhead (6543) - 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.

reebtogi (6385) - 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.

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.

UPDATED: DEC 3, 2005 My first biere de garde and I enjoyed it very much. French in origin, but all characteristics are of a Belgian ale, much like a saison, but there is also complex yeast and malt make this similar to an abbey style beer. Combined, these qualities show why biere de gard is hard to fit into any category. This beer is very floral, with a pleasant light body. Some light fruit flavors.
