This was canned, ive had it from 750ml cork bottles too:I know biere de garde can be either ales or lagers...and this felt like a marring of a malty blonde ale ...with a dry German pils. That’s what i’m gettin’.Actually theres some bready maltinees that you get in pils’s. Earthy pineapple . I often get that in blonde beers.Plesant drink.

Eructoblaster (3942) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 6, 2009
Bottle - 750ml. Limpid golden body with low carbonation and a thick white frothy head. Well balanced malty/hoppy aroma that carries some grainy and bready hints. Its taste lacks complexity and strength, but it hides the alcohol pretty well. Ends with a short bittersweet finish. Very ordinary.

MoritzF (9500) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - DEC 28, 2008
[75cl bottle, courtesy of Quack-Duck] Hazy, golden colour with a blonde foamy head. Sweet and grainy malty aroma with citrus [grape-fruit] and herbal hops. Bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied with a lively carbonation. Grainy malty base with lemony fruity notes. Slightly bitter and slightly sourish grape-fruity finish. Not too complex but aromatic and rounded brew [20.XII.08].

KyotoLefty (9527) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 7, 2008
Bottle in Paris, 2006. Light blonde color. Highly carbonated. Good head. Slightly sweet, malt aroma. Huge hops. Tastes more like a pils than a Belgian ale. Decent malt character, just a bit sweet. A very interesting brew, a bit unlike any other type. Malt finish with a lot of hops too. There is a bit of sweetness remaining, a touch of fruit.

Pours hazy gold with a heavy creamy head. Smels fruity, cornish, and citrusy. Tastes creamy, with sweet light fruit flavor, hints of hops banana, clove, carmel, and a nice dry aftertaste. Pretty good.

beerbuzzmontreal (3487) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 10, 2008
The pour reveals a cloudy golden color with a thick, fluffy, white head. Aroma of malt and bubble-gummy yeast, there’s a mild fruity presence too, feels like bananas. Flavor of malt, bubble-gummy yeast, fruits and mild spices, it’s fairly restrained and not very enjoyable from a hedonistic point of view. The body is light to medium with an oily texture and gentle carbonation.

Rune (11499) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 2, 2008
100ml taster from a bottle at EBF 08. Hazy golden with a white foamy head. Sweet, fruity aroma. Taste of light spices and a careful touch of sappy oranges. Refreshing, but lack of bitterness. Rather too sweet for my palate (14.09.2008).
