Light sugary aroma, with decent floral-fruity hops. Beany. Low malts. Overall, not a huge aroma. Sparkling clear yellow-amber with foamy white lacing head. Medium watery body with medium-heavy carbonation. Starts a bit sweet and musky, bit of barnyard and earth. Finish keeps the sweetness, and it is accentuated as the light acidity drops away. After is still sweet, with a light bitter nuttiness showing up toward the end. An OK biere de garde. Boutip (6344) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 20, 2005
Bottle: Poured a cloudy dark yellow color ale with nice big head with better then average retention. Aroma is quite floral but does not seem to contain any spices, as I would have expected. Taste is quite refreshing with some nice floral malt and lingering bitterness at the end. Body is a bit thin for a ‘’biere de garde’’ and this generally lack some punch to be truly remarkable.

Ordinary golden color with a beauty full white head; Ordinary malty nose a little metallic, later a wet dog and a cardboard box steps out of my glass; Medium full and medium sweet body with a little acidity; Malty medium sweet flowery finish with some alcohol. (I had this beer at another occasion 3 years back where it was a lot better). cgarvieuk (24239) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 2, 2007
blonde in colour, with a light hop nose, slightly sour with a light hop fruit.

Copper brown color, small creamy white head, lace. Vinegar in the nose with dark fruits and hazelnuts. Crisp carbonation. Not very complex flavor, basicly same elements than in the aroma: nuts, candy sugar, sourish notes. Sweetish aftertaste fades away quickly. Not really interesting blonde.
Pours golden yellow with a huge head. Hoppy aroma. Very average taste; thin mouthfeel for a beer of this strength. Mediocre, but not bad. Quack-Duck (9484) - Down South, GERMANY - MAR 4, 2012
0.25l bottle from saveur-biere.com. Hazy golden colour, mid-sized white head. Dusty hops in the nose. Sweet, dusty hops with hints of wet cardboard. Not brilliant. madnorwegian (223) - FRANCE - JAN 24, 2017
Average bière de garde. Nothing to weite home about. Basic sweet malt aromas and flavors with a slight bitter finish. Nice head though. jercraigs (10303) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 10, 2005
330 ml Bottle. LCBO Spring Release 2005. Golden yellow, small wispy white head. Fairly fruity and spicey aroma, and flavour is likewise. Alcohol was not noticeable. Meh. Boring and not really to my taste on this evening.
