Clear amber brownish appearance with medium head. Malty with some scents of roast and coffee, sweet and slightly bitter, alcohol isn’t too noticeable, slightly odd aftertaste though. Good Biere de Garde style.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 19, 2003
Faint hazy amber ruby with small bright yellow beige short lasting head. Strong caramel malty, milder musty cellar yeast and port winey vinous with hint of spice. vinergary toffee and tropical fruit aroma. Medium smooth, ’fly of the tongue’ body. Short mild bitter hoppy start. medium strong hearty and delicious sweet heading towards sticky caramel malty, vinous and yeasty/spicey middle. The alcohol comes through in the middle and finish together with a faint bitter finish. Most fortified vinous of the Bière de Garde"s I"ve ever tasted. Nice.

Diogène (1207) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 22, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2009 Bottle at Pub Italia, Ottawa. Amber copper with a medium white head that disappear quickly. Aroma is earthy and sweet, candy, roasted malts, herbal and floral. Taste is sweet malt, spices, herbs and dark fruits with a medium body. Good beer overall, but a little too sweet for me.

Cristobal37 (1084) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 25, 2016
Fresh malts caramel salty fruity aroma. Amber brown minimal head. Medium body, sweet amber, starts carbonated then gets kinda molassesy like a heller bock, but without any booziness. Finish is light but nice. I imagine this would be a nice table beer with dinner.

The packaging consisted of a green 750 ml bottle, with a champagne style cork, and a wire cage. When the cork was pulled, a satisfying pop revealed that the yeast had been nicely active in the bottle. Poured into a 16 oz wine goblet, the body was clear amber red with moderate carbonation, and could be easily mistaken for a wine. The aroma was also somewhat wine like, with notes of cherry and oak and very little if any hops. The taste was smooth and refreshing. The body was very dry and woody with an astringent tartness, but almost no sourness. Fruits like cherries, red grapes, and pears were also abundant. Floral hops showed up in the middle of the peppery finish. Mouthfeel was surprisingly full. This Bière de Garde tasted much maltier than my previous experiences with beers from the related style Saison, and exhibited fewer funky flavors. Overall this was quite an enjoyable beer, which will most definitely turn me into trying more of its brethren.

Poured an amber color with a ton of sedimentation. Aroma was of apples grapes. Beer was nice and tart. Flavor was much the same. Alcohol was not hidden well at all, but beer was pretty good.
