Clear dark amber color with a medium size off-white head. Sweet aroma. Good sweet flavor of peach and fruits. corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 25, 2011
Draft at the Farmers’ Cabinet in Philadelphia.
Pours a dark golden amber color with a two finger frothy white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. The glass is left coated with soapy lacing.
Slightly spicy aroma with a nice balance of dark fruit and biscuity malt. Hints of pepper and cinnamon along with some cherry and dark berries followed by biscuity caramel malt.
Fuller bodied than expected with a nice balance of zesty spice, funky yeast, earthy hops, dark fruit and sweet malt. A touch of bitterness up front followed by peppery spice that lingers over a slight medicinal character into a dry finish. Hints of dark cherry with a nice malt backbone coutering the fruit/sweetness. Hints of caramel malt and biscuit toward the finish. Compl and much more flavorful than expected. ken1 (2003) - DENMARK - DEC 18, 2011

0.75l bottle from jaghana - cheers! Brown colour, large beige head. Vinous aroma with herbs and roasetd malts, also fresh peaches in the aroma. Interesting combination of sweet and malty flavours/caramel, vinous character and a shy touch of fruit (peach, red grapes). Smooth palate. Very nice indeed, I enjoyed it very much.

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Tulip.
Appearance: Rich, clear reddish-copper with small, bubbly, off-white head that doesn’t leave much behind.
Aroma: Dry fruit and caramel malts balanced by pretty strong hop spiciness. Slight Belgian-like yeast noticeable.
Taste: Very fruity and malty (plum, banana, caramel, candied sugar) but also very spicy, with metallic bitterness, clove and pepper notes. Almost tastes like a mixture of Belgian, English and German styles. Somewhat strange but still tasty.
Palate: Relatively high carbonation, medium body, off-dry finish.
Overall: Interesting beer overall even if I can’t really place it, as Biere de Garde doesn’t seem to mean much here.
