COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Stronger, fuller flavored version of the classic bière de garde. The New York Times (your Paper of Record) just anointed this beer the ultimate bière de garde, and rightly so. It’s a rich, rare treat from one of France’s old guard craft breweries. Be there or be square.

3.3
puzzl (3260) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 20, 2006
Bottle from the latest ’06 shipment. Very little pop from the cork, and not much head. Undercarbonated. Dull aroma, vegetably, cabbage, molasses, beets, radish, brown sugar. Tastes pretty good, though comes across quite flat. Supremely easy to drink, as a result, though I’d trade a bit of that for a little more life. Bad comments, for sure, though this was still enjoyable.

4.1
DocLock (10970) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 1, 2006
Bottle from Super Saver. Hazy ruby coppery pour with 1-finger off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt, fruit, spice, hopcitrus. The taste was caramel malty, spicy, with some nutmeg, brown sugar, maple syrup, and slight hops. Medium palate with a lot of complexity.

HumbertHumbert (77) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 28, 2006
Rich aroma of dried fruits, rum, and soy sauce. Creamy on the tongue with a lasting flaovr of fruit syrup reduction, roasted malt, and marmite. Yeasty bite with just a touch of resiny hops. Pretty tasty, but the taste buds get quickly overwhelmed to the point that the beer becomes a little one dimensional.

Sammy (12600) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 5, 2006
I would readily have again. Excellent with dinner. Palish biere de garde colour, heavenly spicy scent. Easy mouthfeel, understated carbonation and it;s in its prime, nine months before expirey. Slightly candy sweet that works nicely with the spices. Sour notes

2.8
Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - JUN 12, 2006
Bottle. Amber colour with a huge head. Very malty aroma with notes of toffee and caramel. Light dusty and malty flavour someway sweet and spicy.

Pours a slightly hazy amber. Sweet and very full bodied. Nice fruity and malty balance. Quite floral. Slightly vinous. Floral finish.

Ungstrup (38238) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 3, 2006
A hazy amber beer with a thin light orange head. The aroma is malty with notes of wood, while the flavor is sweet malty with notes of over ripe fruits and wood. Somewhat boring.

750 ml bottle pored a clear brown with a lasting amber head. Aromas of roasted malt, carmel and a hint of spices. Palate was medium bodied. Flavors of carmel, toffee, a bit of roastiness and some earthiness with a smooth lingering finish.
