Small white head. Copper-red body. Fruit, sweet (caramelised sugar?, honey), smooth. Nice.

This beer smells and tastes too much like a cooler for my liking. The head is remarkable, the appearance is nice, however the alcohol presence is too strong. Does not even taste like beer.

Well, you help me decide how old this is - the "best before" label has three years printed on it; 95, 96, and 97! Could it be over 8 years old? No indication on the cork, which was difficult to remove and escaped with nearly no sound. In the nose it does indeed resemble other de Gardes I've had; far-off fruitiness mixed with a slightly sour hay, grape skin and white wininess. This would be good, but more along the 3 Monts line than the La Baviasienne. Too bad it's gone this far south.

Not very good. I can't decide what this beer tastes like. It is very confusing. Not very well-balanced.

fiulijn (19614) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 14, 2003
Amber color. Almost stinks. Some malt taste. Worse than La Choulette Blonde.

jonas (6999) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - APR 22, 2003
Strong honey aroma dark amber, low creamy head. Woody and sweet honeyish tastenotes. medium bodied but with a heavy attitude. Sugary sweet, almost vineous aftertaste. Seems to be a bit out off balance to me.

Hildigöltur (5105) - København, DENMARK - APR 8, 2003
Amber colour. Berries in the aroma. Sweet and dry flavour. Quite uninteresting, but drinkable.

CapFlu (5101) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 6, 2003
(33cl Bottle) Thin, almond head that is quick dissipating with a cloudy, orange-amber body. Cocoa, malt and licorice nose. Flavours of thick, floral malt and strong anise spice. Finiahes with slight alcohol burn. Similar to Jenlain.

mutant (854) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 24, 2003
Big short lived head & chestnut colour. Some apple-like aroma. Very malty flavour with just enough alcohol warmth. Caramelly sweetness develops as it warms, which I actually liked. Quite complex and worthy of rating #300.

My review is tainted by a bad cork, which overwhelmed the aroma and flavor of this beer. I detected a nice spicy, peppery aspect, with a sweet, nice body, some earthiness, caramel malt and a bland finish. Amber color, rapidly diminished foamy, tan head. Probably a decent beer, but mine was in poor condition.
