750ml bottle. Amber body with a medium white head. Aromas of caramel, spices, floral notes and some burnt sugar. Taste is more spicy and grainy, with the sweet notes more in the background. Some notes of fresh wood and basement. A bit too much alcohol presence in the flavor though imo. Lively carbonated. Sissio (1645) - Orsenigo, ITALY - JUL 8, 2017

A very nice beer, malty caramel flavours, bit of spice aswell. a bit salty and sticky, but relativly dry and savoury, nice brew. Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 5, 2004
Nice amber color with slight head and slight lacing. Fruity, spicy and malty aroma followed by lots of malt flavor with some horse leather/must lingering in the background. Some phenolic and some esters notices as well. THis is similar to Victory Grand cru just not as strong or bold. THis is my first Biere De Garde but I really liked it and will try more in the future.

[bottle from peckhams] pours an amber colour with a decent head. the nose is malty with some caramel notes, vanilla and yeast. excellent smooth body with a slightly sweet finish. Belial (71) - BELGIUM - SEP 9, 2005
A nice light brown/red colour with a small head. Quite sparkling with a discreet salty flavour at the beginning, it flows easily in the mouth. Some strong malt and grapes aromas.
A very good bear I would drink along bread with a sweet spread on it, possibly with peanuts or pork with a sweet sauce. Garrat (1347) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2005
