Pours a copper colour
Which is far darker than most BdG’s I’ve seen. Very acidic taste, which is surprisingly pleasant. Lots of spice, some clove and a strong dose of cherry tartness. The hops are not at the forefront for this brew, which is unusual for garage project. Excellent BdG Ngejo (1000) - Jakarta, INDONESIA - MAY 19, 2014
Tap. Brown, hazy, minimal head, light sweetness, lightly sour, medium body, average carbonation, & abrupt finish. beer-yum (2044) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 3, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2018 An excellent example of why Garage Project is held in high esteem by the locals. A brilliant variation on the style (biere de garde) that offsets its strength with a surprising but delicious cherry tartness. Pity two of these will see you above the (driving) limit in most jurisdictions. Tonybaldeagle (62) - - APR 23, 2014
I'm not sure what saison is, but this is what I expect it would be something like this. More for the sophisticated palate but enjoyable on a cold night by an open fire

Shameless tick here, as I had a taster at the Chch beer festival, of which I have only mixed memories. The description above is a good reminder that this was a very enjoyable beer, much fruitier and more acid tart than I would expect from a (stored?) Biere de Garde. Or maybe all young BdGs are like that.
