Draught at TND: Aroma of light herbs, light pale malts, slight grass, and slight yeast. Poured yellow/gold in color with a small, off-white head that lasted throughout. Clear. Sparkling. No lacing. Flavor is lightly sweet. Tastes of yeast, pale malts, slight honey, and slight herbs. Medium body. Tingly, lightly dry texture. Lively carbonation. Lightly sweet, herbal, yeasty finish is lightly dry. jvmiller (558) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - AUG 6, 2009
Well this one was different. I thought it was a bit bland, and quite unintrusive upon the palate, if one would. Verily I say to you that there was a bit malt, yeast, and hops in this one. Pip Pip. illinismitty (2271) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 4, 2009
Draft at Mike and Molly’s In Champaign IL. Pours a hazy gold with a white head. Aroma of yeast and belgian phenols. Lighter side of medium bodied with an earthy mouthfeel. Flavor of hay, dough, honey, and medicinal phenols. Ok, but nothing worth repeating. JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 2, 2009
750ml from Once Upon a Time, Richmond. Golden to orange pour, with pretty minimal carbonation and almost no retention whatsoever. Slight diacetyl in the nose along with some pretty typical fruits and a bit of hefe character. Mouthfeel is watery, very little substantial here. A bit of grain in the taste to go with the pretty generic fruity flavors. I’m thinking this isn’t the freshest bottle, and perhaps some hop liveliness would benefit the beer.

Light aroma of fruit and spices. Had a very nice taste of spices, wheat, and some yeast. An interesting beer.

Bottled. Pours honey colored with a small white head. Aroma is slightly sour with some skunk notes. Reminds me of a Grolsch with some funky nutsack and barnyard notes. Flavor is sweet malts that get more sweet as you drink. Medium malt body. BeerandBlues2 (13595) - Escondido, California, USA - APR 20, 2009
Bottle. Pours hazy dark yellow with a small, frothy, white head, somewhat lasting with spare lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (bread, meal, straw), light hop (flowers, grass), heavy yeast (dough, horse blanket) with notes of banana, pepper, and butter. Medium bodied, creamy texture, average carbonation, and a chalky finish. Average duration, light sweetness, acidity, and bitterness. danielyabu (1671) - União da Vitória, BRAZIL - APR 18, 2009
expected more from a biere de garde, though the aroma was good. The appearance was OK, nothing much. The taste was quite a deception, reminding me of a refined Lager. The body was watery, lively carbonation, metallic finish and light body. jmatty19 (3) - Maryland, USA - APR 6, 2009 does not count
A solid beer overall but somewhat lacking in flavor in comparison to Belgian abbey ales. Strykzone (7431) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - FEB 14, 2009
Lightly clouded gold beer with a white soapy head that leaves a good amount of lacing. Aroma is small and nondescript but offers some yeast and wheat notes. A dry bitterness is the first thing tasted. There is also some bubblegum, spice, pear, and funky earthiness. Peppery feel and that bitterness is long lasting. This style is always interesting and this beer fits right in. Unique but not a great beer.
