3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy darker orange color, moderate head, good lace/retention. Aroma is yeast, lightly spiced, caramel. Medium bodied, alcohol hidden well, very drinkable. Yeast only plays a minor role relative to most BDG beers but it’s still present.

Sweet honey aroma and amber gold color with a sweet funk flavor and no bitter finish. Another ommegang that doesn’t disappoint.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours orangish with a white head. Taste belgian yeast, slightly sweet, lightly fruity. I thought this was good. I would drink this again.

Draft. Dusty, earthy aroma. Taste follows aroma, starting a bit dusty then finishing with an earthy bitterness. Drinks like something left a bit too long in the cellar.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle shared by Tmoney99 (2012). Pours a hazy, coppery amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma has sweet toasted malt, fruity notes, light herbs and spices, a hint of wood. The flavor had lightly toasted bread, doughy, candylike sweetness, some spices and lightly fruity. The wood is mild at the finish. Medium body. Not for me at this price point.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft sample at NY Winter Beerfest. Poured a clear honey orange with an average frothy light beige head. Aroma of flowers, potpuri, honey and dough. Thinner body with strong carbonation. Flavor of bread, crusts, flower petals, honey, citrus rind and grass. Not bad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Moderate aromas all around, with grain and cereal for the malt, orange for the hops, dough for the yeast, with date and brown sugar in the background. Head is small, frothy, off-white with no lacing and is fully diminishing. Color is hazy medium amber/orange. Flavor starts lightly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is medium, watery with a fizzy carbonation and a moderately alcoholic finish. Fuller and fruitier than most other Biere de Gardes, but that just makes a more easier drinking beer.

A subtle member of the style, Randy’s bottle. It’s in the finish, light colour and decent drinkability. Less than average mouthfeel.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap, hazy amber pour with a white head. Aromas of oak with notes of maple, sweet malts, and yeast. Flavor is similar with the malts being the center of this brew. Finishes with just a bit of tartness from the yeast. Pretty good.
