An interpretation Biere de Garde made with 30% wheat.

Belle blonde qui titre 7°, composée de malt d’orge et de froment, quelques épices lui donnent un parfum d’agrumes qui font sa notoriété depuis plus de 30 ans.

darkseduction (740) - Zweibrücken, GERMANY - APR 17, 2016
Flasche 75cl. Goldgelb, leichte Trübung. Lebhafte Carbonisation, Gushing. Kleine weiße Schaumkrone. Nicht pasteurisiert. Ale-Hefe? Im Geruch zarte unbestimmbare bittere Aromen. Zum Ende hin leicht erdig, erfrischend. Ungemein süffig, fast schon wässrig im Abgang. Man merkt den Alkohol zu keinem Zeitpunkt. Subtiler Leichtfuß, ehrlich, schnörkellos. Etikett und Name passen daher perfekt zum Bier. Vom Stil eher ein Saison denn ein Garde.

Chudwick (3125) - Taylor Mill, Kentucky, USA - APR 14, 2016
33cl bottle best by 2018 from notes - belgian ale or biere de garde. Caramel, grass, floral, biscuit. Balanced but a tad sweet. Perfumy finish. Odd. 7/3/6/2/12 or 3.0

RSRIZZO (1984) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAR 25, 2016
Corked and caged 750ml green bottle (Courtesy of Headbanger) with what looks like a small storm cloud sitting in the bottom. When I pulled the cork the cloud began to mix as the carbonation was released, so I poured it gently into a Tulip at 43°. Color came out a deep golden with a slight haze and surprisingly no floaties. Aroma is wheat, fruit and yeast. It has a lighter medium body with a crisp mouth feel. Flavor comes in with a faint sweetness that gives some wheat notes, lemon, pear and then just a hint of white pepper on the end. In the after taste a mild bitterness shows balancing it out and leaving a dry feel. Overall it’s a great brew, much better then I was expecting with that funky looking cloud.

Tometclo (280) - Paris, FRANCE - MAR 6, 2016
Mousse blanche, couleur or paille, Arôme d’agrume, de levures. Au goût c’est fruité, les épices arrondissent cette bière. Une belle réalisation. Pression 33 Cl Ch’Carrefour Gourmand, Armentières.

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2016 It’s average, drinkable. When I first opened the bottle I knew that it was about wheat, smells like crops. Pretty poor taste, the beer watery to me... fresh in the summer it’d be great though, I guess...

Bierridder_S (857) - BELGIUM - JAN 4, 2016
04/04/2015 - sample of a 75cl bottle shared by a coleague. Clear blonde with nice white head. Nice carbonation. Grainy, a bit spices, a bit sweetness, a bit dusty. All a bit thin.

Digzis (107) - Nancy, FRANCE - DEC 20, 2015
Couleur blonde assez claire. Bulles assez grosses. Goût sur le malt, le Froment. Un peu épicée, un peu sucrée mais pas trop lourde. A boire assez fraîche. Pas trop mal au final...

Rulymel (278) - SPAIN - DEC 14, 2015
Maltose and rough, very farmy. Intense in flavor with fruity and spicy notes and a hint acid. What I liked in terms of ubiquitous brunes.

Renobob (2026) - Besançon, FRANCE - NOV 28, 2015
Bue en bouteille de 75cl. Blonde jaune. Mousse blanche persistante. Belle effervescence. Palais sur le malt, la céréale. Corpulence moyenne. Légère acidité sur les agrumes en finale. Très moyenne.

Bottle @ Evil Dead tasting, thanks to Ewan and Lynne. Pours golden/yellow, white head quite big as well. Nose is apples, bread, yeast very fruity. taste is along with the nose but with a very slight funk, ok, thanks to Kishan for the bottle.
