After brewing and fermentation, Ch'Ti beers is kept for long weeks in storage tanks. In the calm and cool (0°C) environment, the beer matures, develops a finer taste, perfects its aroma and acquires its natural and characteristic sparkles. It is here also that the beer obtains its balance, finesse and gleam.

yespr (47380) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 9, 2009
To celebrate my S4aD on RB while being in Bordeaux...A French Tripel (listed as biere de garde....). 25 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden orange with a huge, slowly collapsing white head. Aroma is cornish and malty, light sweet note. Sweet caramelish flavoured, light bitterness and vague spice note. Lingering sweet caramelish finish, vague metallic note. Sweet little triple, I don’t get why this is listed as Bière de Garde.

Ungstrup (38381) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 16, 2004
An orange beer with no head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of alcohol and hints of caramel. The flavor is sweet caramel with the alcohol leaving You with a burning in the thoat. Much to my suprise the mouthfeel is thin inspite of the 7.5% ABV and the accented alcohol.

oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 5, 2005
Bottled. Yellowish golden colour with white foamy head. Halfbitter fruity aroma with soem barnyardish hints. Plummy sweet hayish flavour with hints of raising and rye. Aftertaste is breadish, hayish and hoppy. Quite dry.

omhper (25713) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 19, 2006
[Bottled at Monk’s Café, Stockholm] Pale golden, fairly lively. Almondy yeast aroma dominates the nose. Medium sweet withclean but firm mouthfeel and medium body. Vague estery notes of raspberries, but although pretty good, as a whole it’s like a Bière de Garde light, less extrovert and with less appealing malt character than the top examples of the style.

fiulijn (21214) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 16, 2002
Golden color. Some malt, hop and cork in the nose (it's a 750ml bottle, corked). Sweet, good body strength, some malt, some cork. Not impressive.

Bottle at Shane’s house, thanks to SC, 19/12/14. Clear golden orange with a decent off white covering that retains well. Nose is biscuit, light soapy notes, caramel,spice, dark fruit rinds. Taste comprises caramel, biscuit, straw, bready notes, lihgt spice, fruit peel. Medium + body, fine carbonation, light booze in the close. So so.
