Doesn’t really taste like a beer Biere de Garde. More like an ordinary amber ale. Malty and sweet. Not offensive in the least. But nothing to remember. OK Barrios (1243) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 5, 2010
Pours a beige , fizzy, lasting head with a hazy, murky brown body. Aromas of red fruit and yeast. Flavor is red fruit, sweet, lightly toasted malt, hops to balance. Finish is a bit dry. DeanF (2456) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 1, 2010
Stormy bubbles in an amber-brown muddy body, lots of fluffy beige head on top. Aroma is barley, chocolate, bread. Taste is a soft mix of malts and lots of alcohol on the back end, sour and dry finish. A really good bière de garde, but not the best. thebeertourist (5189) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 25, 2010
Bottle from Cave à Bulles. The cork went into the ceiling, and on top of the copper-coloured beer is a nice, sticky, yellowish head. At first I thought chocolate aroma, but it is actually more earthy, even a bit sour fruit. Chocolate remains in the mouth, with hints of sour fruit and dusty earthiness. Very "rural" if there exists a taste term like that. Original and interesting. oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 11, 2010
Bought this at the La Cave à Bulles in Paris. Pours a great amber color not like most biere de Garde. Light but strong. Caramel sweetness but not overpowering. Excellent beer.

Poured a slightly hazed deep amber color with a medium sized cream colored head. Yeasty anbd doughy aroma with sweet caramel notes. Light fruit. Malty sweet flavor that dries out fast. Medium bodied. notalush (5874) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 19, 2008
Thanks to JoeMcPhee for sharing - hazy amber beer - moderate lace - somewhat doughy aroma, with a little bit of nutmeg, cinnamon, and other wintery spices, as well as some cherry and raisin - the flavor is similar - doughy up front, then some warming spicy character - some raisin, plum and quite a bit of caramel - a tiny bit of diacetyl, but it doesn’t distract - not bad at all.

Deep amber colour with a fairly prominent corky aroma. Lightly dusty and minerally over the fairly sweet malts. Caramel, toffee and a bit of orange peel as well. Soft toffee and light pilsner malt base. Fairly low bitterness but there is a bit of butterscotch in here as well. Light lingering sweetness with a bit of fruitiness and orange citrus over the otherwise sweet maltiness. It’s kind of a strange beast, but it’s not bad at all. eyesandsmiles (179) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - APR 12, 2007
A pretty solid beer. I’d drink it when it becomes warm if I were you. Strange advice? Strange things come from french attempts at beer. dornoy (701) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 30, 2005
Off-white head on an amber body. A good brew, not too bitter, well balanced. I got a 75 cl bottle, and I drank it over several days. It does not survive the fridge very well. Overall, a very drinkable beer, but not the best Ambrée I have tasted.
