[1 year after the exp. date] </br>Cloudy brown-amber colour, too much carbonation. Malt nose, nuts. Good malt taste, too much alcohol, liquorice; warming. Ordinary palate. Doesn't age well, and gets some Madeira character. saxo (19522) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - SEP 26, 2011

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2015 33cl bottle from Auchan. Amber colour with thick beige head. Toffee malt. Drying hop on finish. Not too strong tasting even given the 8.5% alcohol. Bit grainy in mouthfeel. Fine, just not very excitng 3.0/5. Re rate bottle at Firkin Alehouse. Clear orange brown colour. Malty tasty. It’s a decent amber Flanders ale. Some lager elements some Belgian ale but without the yeast. Tasty. mcberko (18979) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 14, 2010
330mL bottle, pours a cloudy amber with a huge beige head. Sweet aroma of dark fruits, caramel malt and yeast. Flavour follows suit, with a lingering sourness, dryness and yeasty taste. Nice beer.

Hazy amber colour. Yeasty aroma with firm malts, light spiciness. Hazy yeastiness, light maltiness. Not bad, but rather nondescript and overly yeasty. rlgk (18844) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 30, 2011
Bottle. Golden beer, nice lasting offwhite head. Malty aroma, some spices, bready notes. Malty bready flavor, spices, hops, some perfume, maybe some alcohol. Pleasant beer. chrisv10 (18504) - DENMARK - MAY 14, 2011
Bottle. Clear amber/brown with big foamy off-white head. Flavour is malt, caramel, spices, yeast, little bitter, fruit, hops and notes of nuts. TBone (18227) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 18, 2005
Bottled (BB 01/2008)
Hazy dark orange-amber color, huge tanned foamy head, lace. Malty, earthy aroma, also some horse blanket. Liquerish palate with the typical bière de garde earthy notes and licorice flavor. Toffeish and slightly alcoholic and metallic aftertaste. I haven’t rated so many bière de gardes but I think this is a good example of the style.
