Very dark brown, with thin white foam. Lots of cherry and red wine aromas, plus some oak. Flavor is more of the same, plus some balsamic vinegar. I enjoyed putting this into me.

No idea how it is Biere de Garde here, since it is really nice Flanders. Not very extreme in any side, but really well done.

From a bomber into snifter. Light brown, almost no head, clear. Nose is mild with a hint of funk, some caramel malt. Body is smooth, very little carbonation. I think the bottle was past prime but interesting none the less.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(375ml bottle from boxbeers.dk) Pours a lightly hazed copper with a few stray white bubbles. Aroma is rather acidic and woody with moderate funk overall, notes of tart grapes and berries, lactic citrus, light acetic notes, oak, leather, soft caramel, orchard floor fruity funk, light spice? Flavour is tart but not heavily sour, grapes, light notes of cherry and tart cranberry, a touch of citrus, some slightly sweet caramel malt notes, increasing dryness from the oak, leather, a bit of earth, maybe some bittering hops, persistent tart grape, a little soap/solvent thing on the back end which is distracting. Lightly spicy Brett. Very dry, slightly bitter and tannic aftertaste Light to medium bodied with almost no carb. As the label says, feels like a Flanders red as much as a Biere de Garde, definitely on the sour side for the latter. Nice stuff despite the funny note towards the finish.
