COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In 1991, the brewery decided to revive an old custom harking back to the 14th century when there were no means of refrigeration. Beer was then traditionally brewed in early December and stored over the winter under naturally cool conditions. The first barrels were only opened in March, as the days started to become warmer. It has a fresh, springlike bouquet with dominant tones of malt and grains. It is made using a top fermentation yeast, malted barley and newly harvested Alsation hops. With 5.4% alcohol by volume, it is a pure malt beer that is highly refreshing. It has a fine white head and clear golden colour, a dominant hoppy taste with a hint of fruitiness. Best served between 5 and 6°C.

Jabic (656) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - AUG 27, 2017
Ar: Toasted malt and some clean alcohol; hints of sweetness and oxidation. Ap: Deep gold and slightly hazy; small white head with low retention, leaving a ring of foam and a nebula covering. T: Clean toasted malt and moderate sherry; sweetness; malt is clean and fermentation profile is fairly neutral; very low bitterness, no hop flavor; slight wet wood; finish is sherry and light malt. P: Medium body with medium carbonation; finish is medium. O: The toasted malt, sweetness, and clean fermentation profile all combine to make a true-to-style beer; the carbonation is a bit low and the sherry flavor is a bit too pronounced, but perhaps this is an older sample.

Quick3Beers (1356) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 22, 2015
Pours a hazy amber from a bottle. Aroma of grain, flavor a sweet maltiness with some barnyard funk/hay. A little too sweet for my taste. Okay beer.

An okay amber beer. Malty and sweet, but not particularly distinctive. Mild and smooth.

ClassyBeagle (376) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 23, 2015
From NOTES. A: Malty notes of toasted crust, caramel, and a coarse graininess. Subtle notes of yeast spiciness. A: Pours a red/amber color with only a mild haze. T: Caramel and toffee mingle in with the grainy and toasty flavors. Earthy and musty yeast is present with hints of spicy pepper and alcohol burn. Some dried fruit notes also. P: Medium body with soft carbonation. O: A very nice Bier de Garde, albeit a little bigger and darker than they usually come.

DarkElf (3066) - La Jolla, California, USA - JAN 30, 2014
30-Jan-14 (750-ml corked-and-caged bottle: Holiday Wine Cellar in Escondido, CA)
This beer has a hazy, dark-golden body and half an inch of off-white head that settles to a ring and dusty sheet. The nose is sweet and fruity, with caramel, brown sugar, honey, and ripe apples. Pretty similar on the palate, lots of sweeter, malty, and fruity flavors like brown sugar, baked apples, caramel candy, and a gentle, dried grassiness. Sweet to bitter ratio is clearly on the sweet side as the beer is medium sweet but very lightly bitter (practically non-existent, actually). It’s medium in weight, light-medium in carbonation, and very smooth and easy to drink. Overall, this is a pretty simple, straight-forward beer that focuses on the malt, but since I actually enjoy malty beers, this has offered a nice break from the tendency toward more extreme beers.

Erzengel (9334) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 22, 2013
Der Antrunk ist laff-süßlich. Im Hauptteil wird es herber und muffiger. Der Nachgeschmack ist leicht herb-süßlich, wobei die chemich-muffig-süßliche Note überwiegt. Insgesamt ist es aber sehr laff. Es schmeckt ein Bißchen, wie frische Frühlingserde riecht...

portableparty (2378) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - DEC 21, 2013
750 ml bottle. Pours an unclear orange with a soapy white head that fades to a thin soapy film and collar. Aroma is skunky funk some yeast straw grassy and malt. Taste is sweet malty yeast a little funk/skunk flavors along with grass straw and faint fruit/citrus flavors that tail off to some cardboard. Palate is thin slightly fizzy and dry. Not a bad brew, but not going in any real stand out direction!

mansquito (6785) - Nueva York, New York, USA - FEB 12, 2013
New Beer Distributors, NY 330ml ($3.50): Pours a light amber with a whitish head. Aroma is honey, yeast, and maybe some flowers. Taste is rather sweet and malty, without too much else going on. Hops are barely there. Body is close to medium. Beer is meh.

3.3
Gachupines (1252) - USA - NOV 8, 2012
Clear golden with a slight white head. Aroma is mildly fruity, vague apple notes. Flavor is clean and crisp with a tart sweet finish almost like a less sweet apple cider. Fairly decent, probably wouldn’t go for it again though.

pivnizub (10763) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAY 10, 2012
Bouteille (merci,Stephane!): Golden with a greenish sheen, small and stable foamy layer, moderate sweetish-grainy nose with some citrussy hops in the background; moderate sweet-bitter flavour, light to medium bodied; slightly lingering malty and hoppy finish. Quite good by french standards.......
