Not as light and fruity as some biere de gardes. Lots of amber and malts. Some nutty taste. But I prefer the farmhouse style a bit more. TaktikMTL (7733) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 14, 2011

i hosted a bit of a beer tasting for my mum and her friends and they seemed to like this the best. it was use by 2002 which i guess is why it was slightly more subdued and less spicy than i expected. rich ruby colour. a full over-ripe apple sweetness smooths into some marzipan and then dries out with some stale tea - certainly the cellaring did it some good Ernest (7661) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 3, 2002

Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Sourish, and not entirely wholesome. jonas (7549) - Garching b.

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.

750mL bottle, BB 4/25/07. Poured clear, medium sparkly orange/amber with a well-formed cap of white head. The aroma picked up spicy darker fruits, dusty notes of mild oxidation, and an almost vinegary tartness. The flavor had a soft lemon and vinegary tartness throughout with sweet dark fruits and toffee across the middle.. dry peppery and floral notes hit on the finish.. just a bit too tart, perhaps because this was a little old.. still tasty, though. Medium-bodied with tartness beating out the sweet stuff.. lemony finish. I’d drink this again. Sledutah (7490) - Utah, USA - MAY 1, 2011
Bottle shared by footbalm at his going away party Idiosynkrasie (7435) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 7, 2016
Appearance: Hazy brown apple cider color with a small off-white head and some lacing
Aroma: Tart and spicy peppers
Taste: Tart fruits, dusty. Thin mouthfeel
Ok, easy drinking
330ml bottle. Clear, dark amber colour with average, thick, fairly lasting and lacing, white head. Fruity aroma delivers a plethora of red and blue berry notes, additional notes of sweet and sour cherries as well as a touch of plum. Taste is moderately sweet, slightly sugary, fruity, notes of cherry, hints of plum, all with a minimally artificial jelly bear touch; leafy overtones in the finish. Unsatisfying discrepancy between aroma and taste. Nisse666 (7324) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 28, 2013
