Contrairement à l’ambrée qui m’avait décu par son amertume et le gout de houblon trop intense. Celle la est vraiment une bonne bignouse.

Frederiksberg 23/12-2017. 75 cl bottle shared with my sister and Brother-in-law. Very simple label saying "Biere du Garde" and "Artisinal". Pours slightly hazy golden yellow with small white head. Disappears quickly leaving unhealthy urine sample behind. No lacing. Aroma is quite sweet. Sugary banana, caramel, marzipan and honey. Light sourish notes. Soft carbonation and slightly thick palate. Flavor is heavy sweet balanced only by very light bitterness. Aftertaste is sweet and cloying. Smells very good but the flavor is way too sweet for my taste buds.

Vignale (4118) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 19, 2017
75 cl-flaska köpt av vän i Frankrike. Mörkt gyllengul, krämigt vitt skum. Fruktig och lite blommig och tvålig doft som mest drar åt äppeltvål. Frisk, fruktig och blommig, ganska torr. Bra kropp med rustika sädsmaker som matchar den annars lite eteriska frukt-och blommighet. Åpple, päron åt det tvåliga men inte kvalmiga hållet. Annorlunda men trevlig Bier de Garde.

Chez Jacky avec côte de boeuf. Blonde, col de mousse moyen à tenue moyenne et carbo forte. Arôme fruité très sympa. En bouche, douce et fruitée : pomme, fruits jaunes. Bien ! Mais j’ai préféré L’Ambrée plus puissante et légèrement torréfiée.

larsga (7675) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 17, 2017
Medium white head. Clear still coppery body. Fruity toffee aroma with floral notes. Sweetish floral earthy caramelly taste with strawy vanilla fudge notes. Reminiscent of some Lithuanian beers. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish earthy caramelly straw aftertaste with vanilla fudge and toffee notes. Unusual. A little sweet and slack, but still interesting. (0.75l bottle, from wine monopoly, Strømmen.)

Average bière de garde. Nothing to weite home about. Basic sweet malt aromas and flavors with a slight bitter finish. Nice head though.

Bottle, 75cL. Home. A golden orange beer with a medium white head ; average retention. Caramel, clove, roast, herb, light bread. Medium dry bitter refreshing ; light to medium sweet ; round. Medium body, silky texture, good carbonation, sweet spicy dry finish. Overall, enjoyable !

Kolor z?oty, klarowny. Piana bia?a, puszysta, drobno p?cherzykowa, wysoka, wyj?tkowo trwa?a, pozostawia fantastyczne zdobienia. Aromat: wytrawny, owocowy, s? bia?e winogrona, jest s?odowo?? i delikatna "malinowa" s?odycz. Ca?o?? podane z charakterystycznymi dla stylu, nutami piwnicznymi. Smak: delikatnie ostry, pieprzowy, wytrawny z wyra?n? s?odowo?cia, s? bia?e owoce, lekko kwa?ne i s?odkie, mnóstwo wilgotnej piwnicy wype?nionej mokrym, kielkujacym zbo?em. Goryczka delikatna, pieprzowa. Wysycenie wysokie, odpowiednie.

Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 24C). Bottle 33 cl - Batch unknown. AROMA: predominant mix of slight alcohol and a medium low malt sweetness with notes of a doughy, bready character. The alcohol is slightly peppery. No hop perceived nor fruitiness. APPEARANCE: golden color and clear. medium-large off-ehite head, creamy, with medium-low retention. some lace formation. TASTE: predominant malty sweet flavor with notes of bread and a slight touch of honey-like malt. low bitterness with a semi-dry to dry finish, with a bready character. PALATE: medium-low body with a very faint texture. faint alcohol warmth. no other palate sensations. excessive carbonation. OVERALL: a nice biere the garde, with a predominant bready and alcohol aroma, with a sweet component. the sample was overcarbonated (gusher).
