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.

Bottle from Johns Marketplace in Portland, OR. BB date not decipherable. Nice copperish amber color with a minimal beige head. Aroma is caramel malt with some nut. Medium body with moderately frothy carbonation. Flavor is lightly roasted caramel, nuts, pale stone fruits, and spice, perhaps nutmeg. Finish is nearly astringent. Tasty beer. Well worth the $7.99.

Bottle. [thank you, Yespr]
Pours a light orange with a pretty, creamy off-white head. Aroma is sweet, caramel and lightly fruity. A little thin mouthfeel perhaps. Flavour is nice, lightly vinious and some malty sweetness. There are notes of tartness as well balncing nicely with the sweet graininess.

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
