Bottle @ WWT II. Pours hazy amber with a medium white head. Aroma has some caramel malts, metal and oxidation. Taste is quite sweet with malts, a bit of metal and oxidation.

750ml - Aroma is nutty caramel malts with a little dark fruit and mellow earthy hops. Pours muddy brown with a big head and great lacing. Flavor matches aroma with some spice tossed in. Palate is smooth and creamy with just a touch of tartness. A very nice BdG.

Klar, ganska mörkt bärnstens färgad, stort orange skum av stora bubblor som snabbt faller. Doft: Farmors vetelängd, jäst, alkohol, övermogna röda äpplen, lite belgo, bröstsocker, färskt avbruten gren. Smak: Som doft fast bättre och mer balanserad. Lite för mycket sötma och alkohol i doft och smak i mitt tycke.

Pours crystal clear amber with a few leasurely bubbles supporting a thin head. Very fruity aroma with toffee and spice and a few vegetable notes. Spicy, earthy caramel flavor with some candy sweetarts. Big, smooth body. Finishes sweet with some floral and candy orange flavors. If it weren’t for the mild astringency and a bit of dirtiness, this beer would be the best Biere de Garde I’ve had. Still great.

yes yes like it like it. bieres de garde are so varied - none of them taste remotely like each other. slightly sweet, in a stewed apple (skin on) kind of way, with a cashewy raisiny chewiness, and a touch of something savoury, like one of those tough, withered old salamis you get in italian delis. buggered if i know how they get those flavours in there.

mephisto (1301) - TAIWAN - AUG 27, 2009
a really tasty brew! it doesn’t look that impressive though: cloudy amber with little white head. but the aroma is fruity with hint of prune. very fruity flavor, sweet but has enough complexity, quite enjoyable.

Pours deep amber with heavy sweet notes of malt. The first palate shows the heavy sweet malt but then is disipates to a nice spice driven finish.

DJoer (1291) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 20, 2014
White mokka medium head, amber chestnut colour, sweet caramel some fruity, somevstrawberry hints, medium carbonation and bitter some liquorise/caramel taste

Extremely earthy hop flavor dominates this one. Nice maltiness, rather typical of the biere de garde style, I believe, as I have yet to sample one that wasn't luciously malty. Some slight metallic flavor comes out toward the end, but reasonably enjoyable.
