Amber with a light head. Effervescent with a little spice, some malts, light fruit with a dry aftertaste. Not bad

Bosskie (824) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 31, 2016
Cristal-clear copper-coloured beer, luminous, with a white head. Smell is malty white pepper coriander and metallic honey sweetness. Hint of mint. Taste is bready watery, nice bitterness, well balanced against subtle sweetness. Hint of honey. Astringent finish. Quite OK.

Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 9, 2010
Enjoyed from a 750ml bottle in an elongated tulip glass. The beer pours a light amber color, with a moderate off-white head. The nose shows some initial skunkyness, before transitioning to more inviting aromas of malt and subtle Belgian/Continental yeast esters. The palate replicates these items, showing Germanic malt sweetness in the approach and mid-palate, before some estery notes; the latter falling short of Trappist proportions, but fairly noticeable, just the same. Carbonation seems slightly low, but this may be more a matter of personal preference, rather than stylistic error. The finish leaves a restrained malt/ester note. Overall, a seemingly stylistically accurate beer that is pleasant, but also fairly unmemorable.

On tap at la gaiete in lille. Flavor is outstandingly well balanced for a bdg. Roasted and fruity notes come through with expected flavor of the type. Very solid beer.

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - FEB 17, 2013
A - Poured in an over sized wine glass. Clear copper with a 1 finger white head leaving a corner ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass. Very little lacing. S - Grassy yeast, bread with some honey notes, earthy grains, green apples, with some spiciness as well. T - Malty followed by a spicy citrus. Tart fruits-pears & apples. Some cereal and sour grain in the background along with mild alcohol notes. There’s also some metal present. It comes through in the aftertaste as well. The finish is tart and crisp. The metallic aftertaste of this beer bugs me. This was an ok Biere de Garde. It’s worth a try though. Serving type: bottle 08-07-2010

guzgorog (785) - FRANCE - JAN 22, 2016
Couleur ambrée caramel limpide, peu de bulles, fine mousse blanche. Nez de grains d’orge, caramel, biscuit, coriandre, finale légèrement orangée. La bouche est fortement maltée, caramel. Corps moyen, bien sucrée, faible carbo, faible amertume. Bière que l’on trouve facilement en supermarché, meilleure que la moyenne de celle qu’on trouve dans les rayons. Elle manque néanmoins de caractère et d’originalité.

dnoaksson (781) - , SWEDEN - FEB 3, 2009
En snäll öl som förgyller strupen med lika delar sötma och beska. Påminner en hel del om Duvel. Definitivt en av de bättre i sin prisklass.

GarnotingPete (777) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 11, 2013
Bière dorée, limpide et où flotte une fine écume laissant peu de dentelle au verre. Des arômes de malts pâles d’où pointent certains esters fruités et un arôme de fruits tropicaux. Peu amère et assez sucrée. Elle est lisse, de corps moyen, peu effervescente et se termine sur des notes légèrement sucrées et quelque peu astringentes

generallee08 (772) - New York, USA - JUN 4, 2014
Its body has a deep orange amber color with a good cloudy appearance and a tall off white head. The head quickly fades down to a thin cap which then holds on well making spotty slick lacing on the glass. The aroma is very wheaty and bready. Underneath that are some light citrusy notes of hops. The flavor has dry wheat, light grain and light bready malty notes throughout. Towards the finish a light touch of citrus hops moves in and adds some bitterness for balance. The finish is quick, snappy and dry. The palate has a medium well carbonated feel. Overall it is a very nice Biere de Garde with loads of tasty wheat maltiness. Everything else is right on par for the style.
