highlandlad (1480) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - JAN 31, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2005 Vive La France. A great biere de garde and one that complements many meals. I’ve found it’s also a beer that non-beer drinkers can enjoy. It pours an earthy tangerine colour with a huge lingering head. The nose is herbal and yeasty. Smooth, medium body, with a deliciously fruity middle and a light dryness in the finish. Tangy orange characters dominate a sweetish body. Fabulous. One of my favourite beers. (Champagne bottle, October 2002)

Brodie (540) - Boone, North Carolina, USA - JAN 28, 2005
Clean aroma, red grape skins, faint herbal hops. Clear deep amber color, good sized beige head. Malty flavor, sweet, with a little yeasty earthiness. Medium body. Easy to drink.

pretty chestnut color. yeasty nutty aroma and flavor, but mostly tastes like a french version of an english mild. very neutral.

erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - JAN 12, 2005
Pours a deep golden w/ very little head. Aromas of ripe red apples and cinnamon. Sweetish flavors of honey w/ some yeastiness. A little too sweet.

3.5
MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - JAN 10, 2005
Good looking red orange color and a decent head on tio. The aroma is a crisp leafy citrus and a hint of yeast. The taste is less warm and roasty but more crisp and leafy. Rather sweet for a Biere de Garde, kind of sugary. Overall a rather good beer, but could use a bit more warmth.

HopasaurusRex (195) - Glen Ellyn, Illinois, USA - JAN 8, 2005
I haven’t had too many Biere de Gardes, but this wouldn’t be what I thought it’d taste like. I always thought BDG’s were earthy and richly malty, but this was more straightforward and just malty. Also had a cinnamon overtone to the flavor. Didn’t love it, but a well made beer and seemed quite fresh for an import.

mustang3 (254) - Whitby, CANADA - JAN 1, 2005
Bottle @ Cafe Volo. Poured a nice reddish amber colour with very little head. COmplex nose and flavour with caramel malts, fruitiness and finishing with a combination of barnyard flavour and a touch of bitterness. Great beer.

3.6
Eyedrinkale (3214) - Astoria, New York, USA - JAN 1, 2005
A nicely done, sweet biere de garde. Taste is sweet and malty with typical barnyard flavors. Nice lacing but just a bit too malty. I’d drink it again though.

3.8
HoppyBunny (88) - Temptation, Michigan, USA - JAN 1, 2005
Deep amber in color, with lite head and the aroma with a cherry aroma. Caramel taste with as noted before buttery. Has a tart after finish. Love feeling like I am in Paris drinking a beer with my love.

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2005 33 cl bottle: my first biere de garde. the pour is a nice amber color with a creamy non retenting head. highly carbonated.aroma is od grassy hops and malt, hints of caramel. the flavors is kind of like that of a vienna. overall quite matly but nicely balanced. caramel flafors with some herbal grassiness. sweet kinda buttery honey flavors. fruity with a slightly sour finish. anise and vanilla. a decent beer, the best french beer i have had.
